THOR: RAGNAROK Actress Tessa Thompson Reveals That She's Interested In Playing The New KICK-ASS

Kick-Ass writer Mark Millar recently revealed that Tessa Thompson would be his top choice to play the new incarnation of the character, and the Thor: Ragnarok star has now responded very positively indeed.

Mark Millar will soon unveil his new incarnation of Kick-Ass (a military veteran who takes inspiration from Dave Lizewski) to the world in comic form, but the writer has already revealed his top pick to play the character if another live-action adaptation should ever go into production.

Millar recently sent out a Tweet naming Tessa Thompson as the "one choice that really jumps out", and the Thor: Ragnarok star has now responded:



We're not sure if we will ever another Kick-Ass movie, but now that Millarworld has partnered up with Netflix, there's always a chance that a series has been discussed - and if it hasn't, you can bet that it soon will be if Thompson really is serious about wanting to play the character.
