The epic series finale is here! Kick-Ass 3 dons the costume one last time…will he be going to his death or a triumphant ride into the sunset? And has months in lock-up dulled Hit-Girl’s death-dealing reflexes just when she needs them the most? This milestone double-sized issue marks the end of one era and the start of a new Millarworld universe. Must not miss!

Can't wait for this to become the third movie.

Wow, I'm debating on if I should read the comic before the 3rd film releases?

Blood for the sake of blood. Violence for the sake of violence. Gets old after awhile.

There will definitely NOT be a third movie. The first only barely made money in home sales. It lost money at the box office. The second performed far worse in both markets, so that's that.

With "The MotherF-er" killed at the end of the 2nd movie as compared to being put into a body cast, and Hit Girl escaping as compared to being arrested and put in prison, it's highly unlikely this series will be the definitive story arc for Kick-Ass 3 (the movie.) If they even decide to make a 3rd film.

Mark Millar hasn't done a damn thing for Fox/Marvel. Heck, he could have at least used this opportunity to pimp out his own properties like he was going to before, but...he hasn't done anything.

I was under the understanding you couldn't get f*cked up today if you wore green.

Or if it was you getting f*cked up yourself.

Only good comic was the first one, which was amazing. The art was beautiful, the story was unique and interesting, and the dialogue was pure entertainment.
FoneBone - 3/17/2014, 12:13 PM
I hope the third is great.

There could be a third considering it's star is going to be entering more high profile parts.
McGee - 3/17/2014, 12:20 PM
Gus is gonna get f*cked today.

They better make a third film! The cover looks cool!

The first movie more than tripled it's budget in box office earnings, and the second movie more than doubled it's budget. They weren't huge successes, but they certainly weren't failures. Where do your figures come from?

I hope there is a 3rd Kickass film.

Gorgeous artwork. Looks like Kick Ass is gonna get his arse shot to bits.
StSharp - 3/17/2014, 1:32 PM
Hope he doesn't die...too many comics these days, with characters that become symbols, have been killed off in the last issue and then they show that they were more than heroes blah blah. Personally I like the idea, but like I said, its been done too often. Would like to see an ending where he lives and what happens after. Now that would be cool!

Nice. That cover depicts the heart of the book.
Bread - 3/17/2014, 5:54 PM
I gave up on Kick Ass 3. I read the first 4 or 5 issues, but it got really boring. There's never going to be a Kick Ass 3 movie, with the way KA2 performed at the box office, plus it was terrible compared to the first.
Bread - 3/17/2014, 5:58 PM
The Kick Ass 2 book wasn't that great, but I thought the Hit-Girl comic was really good. The Kick Ass 2 movie should have taken more elements from the Hit-Girl book.

Made me think of the alternate opening of Kick-Ass 2. 1:11 mark.

MrBitterman - 3/17/2014, 10:10 PM
waiting for the movie....I'm one of those foxes.
fettastic - 3/17/2014, 10:20 PM
I actually get pretty sick of explaining how box office works to peope who pretend to be experts but actually have no [frick]ing clue what they are talking about. "Derrr...it doubled it's production cost". Yeah well printss aren't free. Neither is advertising. That makes the total cost at least $60m. Oh yeah...studios only recoup 55% of the box office.

THAT'S where I got the FACT that it [frick]ING BOMBED!

*shrugs*
I didn't read the comics, but I loved both movies. I would be glad to see a third. my gf loved 'em both too. maybe we were the only ones. oh well.

@fettastic
Geez man, my mistake. I wasn't trying to be condescending or anything, I was just wondering.

I didn't really think about that when I looked at the figures.So, thanks for the lesson I guess? Haha
