Kick-Ass Synopsis


Kick-Ass tells the story of average teenager Dave Lizewski (Aaron Johnson), a comic-book fanboy who decides to take his obsession as inspiration to become a real-life superhero. As any good superhero would, he chooses a new name - Kick-Ass - assembles a suit and mask to wear, and gets to work fighting crime. There's only one problem standing in his way: Kick-Ass has absolutely no superpowers.

His life is forever changed as he inspires a subculture of copy cats, meets up with a pair of crazed vigilantes - including an 11-year-old sword wielding dynamo, Hit Girl (Chloe Grace Moretz) and her father, Big Daddy (Nicolas Cage) - and forges a friendship with another fledgling superhero, Red Mist (Christopher Mintz-Plasse). But thanks to the scheming of a local mob boss Frank D'Amico (Mark Strong), that new alliance will be put to the test.

Kick-Ass Creator Mark Millar Has An Insane Idea For A Hit-Girl Movie Kick-Ass Creator Mark Millar Has An Insane Idea For A Hit-Girl Movie
Mark Millar is very popular these days. The man behind Kingsman: The Secret Service has turned several of his comic properties into box office gold. Apparently one of the ideas the man behind Kick-Ass is toying with is a solo flick for Kick-Ass heroine Hit-Girl.

It seems that rumors depicting the demise of the planned Kick-Ass spinoff, Hit-Girl have been exaggerated. In fact, the director of the series’ first film, Matthew Vaughn isn’t throwing in the blood-soaked towel just yet on this little franchise that could. According to Vaughn, Hit-Girl is still very much in play and he plans to use it as way to get enough momentum for a possible Kick-Ass 3!

Since Kick-Ass launched both of them to various levels of fame, Aaron Johnson and Chloe Moretz have both grown up a good bit-- though you wouldn't necessarily know it by watching this new clip from Kick-Ass 2, which premiered at MTV.

Those who were hoping that Jim Carrey would get on board with Kick Ass 2: Balls to the Wall will likely appreciate this update. While it's not exactly official confirmation in the traditional sense, the word "officially" was used in the tweet director Jeff Wadlow posted this weekend, which stated that the film has its Colonel. And a very familiar (slightly modified) Jim Carrey quote was used in the process.

Kick-Ass Stars In Talks To Return For Sequel Kick-Ass Stars In Talks To Return For Sequel
When it was announced that Universal was making a deal so that it could create a sequel to Matthew Vaughn's Kick-Ass there was a lot of rejoicing among fans, but the news came with a catch: none of the principal actors, including Aaron Johnson, Chloe Moretz and and Christopher Mintz-Plasse, had contracts that would guarantee their return for Kick-Ass 2. Well, we can all breathe a sigh of relief now because apparently Universal knows that making the film would be pointless without the original cast.

As much as I really liked Kick-Ass (it was one of my favorites in 2010), it's hard not to see the writing on the wall. Lionsgate, who picked up the project for distribution in the United States, wasn't very happy about the movie's domestic performance, where it made less than $50 million, so they probably wouldn't be in too much of a rush to pick up a sequel.
