Speaking to DigitalSpy, Millar shared the following details about Kick-Ass 2---

"People who've read the comic will know that the second one ends on a cliffhanger. Hit-Girl's been arrested and she's in prison, Dave has lost his dad and he's kind of destitute. The third one will be set two years later, and it's about where their lives are now, picking it up from there."


Millar also stated that costumed vigilantes have sensibly been outlawed yet a few heroes still operate despite societies wishes---

"I used to love Marvel Comics where the cops were chasing superheroes, seeing them as menaces because they're not licensed in any way. So I kind of like the idea of bringing that back, because in reality there's no way a cop or a fireman is going to let a guy in a suit run into a building. I like the idea that after they have stopped a mugging they have to run away for the police. That old-fashioned superhero thing."


Millar also went on to say that Volume 3, which will be released in 2013, will bring his and Romits's work to an end. Of course the sequel to the film is just beginning to ramp up and there's always a chance that the solo Hit-Girl series could continue (if her character survives Volume 3).





Kick-Ass is a 2010 black comedy superhero film based on the comic book of the same name by Mark Millar and John Romita, Jr. The film was directed by Matthew Vaughn, who co-produced the film with actor Brad Pitt, and co-wrote the screenplay with Jane Goldman. The film's general release was on 25 March 2010 in the UK and on 16 April 2010 in the US.

The film tells the story of an ordinary teenager, Dave Lizewski, who sets out to become a real-life superhero, calling himself "Kick-Ass". Dave gets caught up in a bigger fight when he meets Big Daddy, a former cop who, in his quest to bring down the drug lord Frank D'Amico, has trained his eleven-year-old daughter to be the ruthless vigilante Hit-Girl.

Despite having generated some controversy for its profanity and violence performed by a child, Kick-Ass was well received by both critics and audiences. The film has gained a strong cult following since its release on DVD and Blu-Ray.

On 19 February 2012, Millar revealed that the sequel is scheduled to begin filming in the summer of 2012.

I'm interested to see where this goes. Will it have a semi-happy ending? I have enjoyed his work so far.

I look at Millar, Miller and Moore the same way... I love their work, but when they open their mouths its shit.

AWESOME!

Are the comics radically different than the movie? I heard that they were different because they were developed at the same time but is it that significant? If they are different I might pick em up, but if they are like the film I probably wonkt like em.

Glad to see that Balls to the Wall wasn't the final installment. Can't wait to see 3.

Having read volume 2, I have NO idea how they're going to put that onscreen and not get an NC-17. I mean, there's rape and child murder in it, and it's sort of an important moment in the plot.

Yeah I agree, they changed some stuff that was fairly important in the first flick, mainly that Kick-Ass ends up with Katie and some other minor stuff but I feel like they couldn't really even MAKE the 2nd one, it's pretty hardcore. Even if it were to get an R-rating, a lot of stuff would have to be implied I think
