Mark Millar shines light on what could happen in the sequel to Kick-Ass.
The folks over at Comicbookmovie.com had a chat with Kick-Ass creator Mark Millar and the amazing artist for the book John Romita Jr. Check it out people.
I always had this planned as three volumes, and each is a sequel. It’s not like a regular comic where it’s issue nine, ten and eleven. It’s Kick-Ass 2, Issue 1 sort of thing. It’s just starting where we left off last time.
Through success [Kick-Ass has] inspired other people, and what the heroes do is form gangs. It’s a bunch of people in masks looking at each other’s Facebooks and going out and fighting each other. Like a massive fight in Time Square with hundreds of superheroes and hundreds of supervillains, and the police trying to break it all up.
The first one was all about becoming a hero. And the second one really is about becoming a villain… you’ve got Red Mist who’s become like Alex in Clockwork Orange. So he’s a bit Heath Ledger’s Joker, a bit of all the bad guys I’ve ever loved in movies. So yeah I suppose it is darker, but I think a big part of Kick-Ass is the jokes, so it’s still funny.
Hit Girl, of course, is back. At the end of the last movie she promised her step-father she wouldn’t kill people anymore, she’s just a kid. So I like the idea of doing a Clint Eastwood in Unforgiven, you know where the gunslinger hasn’t picked up a gun in 20 years, but doing that with a 12 year old girl. She’s watching Glee and all that – she’d rather be out there fighting crime.
I love the Unforgiven idea with Hit-Girl. That would make so much sense to me. I loved Kick-Ass and I have all the books to prove it! The sequel should be bloodier and more obscene! I mean hey its Kick-Ass!
