Kick-Ass creator Mark Miller is currently writing the Kick-Ass 2 comic, which he plans to finish by Christmas, and then according to Miller Matthew Vaughn will jump straight into pre-production once the director has finished X-Men: First Class next May/June.
While many would be more than happy with a 2012 release for Kick-Ass 2, Aaron Johnson (Dave Lizewski/Kick-Ass) doesn’t think the sequel will happen any time soon.
Johnson, who played Dave Lizewski (aka Kick-Ass), said, “Mark Millar’s very enthusiastic about it, yeah, definitely. I mean, I think he’s sort of set it up for a second one, but it kind of goes through Matthew Vaughn, and what have you, and they’re not going to make one any time soon…. The way I heard was that we were going to wait until, I don’t know, and it’s, you know, it’s not any time soon, I don’t think. They’re going to hold off and wait for that anticipation, I suppose.”
When we asked him if there was a script for ‘Kick-Ass 2,’ he said there wasn’t and that he hadn’t seen anything, even though he talks to director Matthew Vaughn regularly.
One of the main reasons for not sitting around would be due to Chloe Moretz’s inevitable growth as she is now officially a teenager. A 14/15 year old kicking-ass would still be fun, but the sooner they get to it the better.
