Mark Millar Says <i>Kick-Ass 2</i> Is Only Nine Months Away From Filming!

The comic book writer talks about the storyline of the sequel as well as when work on the movie will start! PLUS: Check out two new images from the Kick-Ass 2: Balls To The Wall comic book...

On The Storyline of Kick-Ass 2:

"Kick-Ass 2 follows immediately after Kick-Ass. You see how Dave has inspired people to become amateur superheroes, Red Mist has inspired people in the sequel to become amateur supervillains. So what we have is two rival gangs of super characters getting together in New York. We go straight into what’s happened with Dave and Hit-Girl as well, picking up from where they left off in the last story. Hit-Girl has now been adopted by someone who’s saying that she’s not allowed to kill people anymore, she can’t be Hit-Girl anymore. Dave is getting deeper and deeper into this very dangerous hobby that he has which is going out every night and getting into fights, dressed in a superhero costume and he’s actually formed a superhero team"

On When The Movie Will Start Production And The Problems That Come With That:

"We’re probably about nine months away from production starting, at the earliest, because Matthew Vaughn's got to do X-Men: First Class. Matthew just wants to get X-Men done next year then hopefully we’ll just go straight into Kick-Ass 2, that’s the plan."

"That’s a massive pressure because Chloe in particular is going to change physically quite dramatically over the next few years, so we have to do the sequel while everyone still looks like they’re in high school."

On The Success Of The First Movie:

"You have to remember, Kick-Ass made $100 million at the box office. Everyone was expecting it to make Avatar money, I would say people said maybe twice Iron Man money, that type of thing. But Iron Man had a budget that was like eight times our budget. They were like $300 million and we were $28 million. So they made $100 million on a $28 million movie."
