Mark Millar talks Kick-Ass 2

Reveals a few key plot points

Kick-Ass 2has finally got the official greenlight from Universal, and with filming set to start in September, original creator Mark Millar has been dropping a few details about what we can expect from the sequel.

A few of the things Millar reveals could be interpreted as a mite spoilery, so if you want to go into the film knowing absolutely nothing, it might be an idea not to read on…

"Hit-Girl will be the first 30 minutes of the movie," explains Millar of how the movie will play out structurally, "and then the next 70 minutes is Kick-Ass 2. So Hit-Girl is structured as the first act."

"Every horrible scene in the book will be in the film," he continues. "The c**t line in the first one, everybody said ‘there’s no way you’re getting that in the movie’, but it happened and it’s the same thing with this. Everybody is saying ‘you can’t have a gang rape scene with supervillains’ and ‘you can’t have the dog’s head cut off’, but every single one of those scenes will go in it."

And speaking of supervillains, Millar is excited to send Christopher Mintz-Plasse down some very dark alleys indeed.

"To see the guy you know as the charming McLovin doing awful things, it’s going to be doubly upsetting," says Millar, "and that was always the plan. He’s a very, very underrated actor. I think sometimes if you do comedy, people don’t accept that you are a serious actor, but he’s one of those guys who can turn his mind to anything."

Kick-Ass 2 is expected to arrive in 2013, with a specific release date yet to be confirmed.

      I don't think Chloe will be as funny this time, puberty has ruined all that cheeky charm.

      I've only seen Matthew Vaughn's work in X-Men: First Class and this one -- I guess he's a very good director after all. To me, Kick-a*s was like watching X-Men, Equilibrium, V For Vendetta, Batman and Big Stan at the same time; wish there was also 'The Matrix' for the slow-mo's (hopefully they put it in the sequel with the original actors and Matthew Vaughn directing it once more). Bloody actions alongside comedies. I really enjoyed it (9.8 over 10).
