According to Millar, the film will split fairly neatly into two sections, one drawing on his Hit-Girl storyline, and the other adapting the Kick-Ass 2 comic-book.
“The [comic] was always planned as a 12-issue story broken into two parts, but they each have to stand in their own right,” he explains. “You can read one and not have to read the other, but when you go and see the movie, it’s basically Hit-Girl for 45 minutes and then an hour of Kick-Ass 2.”
“There is no bigger fan of the first movie than me,” he continues. “I think it’s pretty close to perfect. But there’s so much in this, the whole thing so rich, that I honestly think this might be the Empire Strikes Back to Star Wars.”
