Renown comic book writer Mark Millar let is slip in an interview with IGN, that the Kick-Ass movie was originally designed to be a trilogy.
“On the Kick-Ass 2 movie, set to be directed by Jeff Wadlow, Millar was also hesitant to reveal names but stated that there will be two new actors joining the cast. He did let slip, however, that there will be a movie trilogy. “Matthew [Vaughan, director of Kick-Ass] and I always talked in Star Wars terms – we had this shorthand… Seriously, the trilogy of Kick-Ass movies is exactly structured like Star Wars and like, planned from the beginning.”
I just hope that they don’t try and milk it with terrible prequels, sorry I have a deep seeded hate for Star Wars. Regardless, I do love that Mark Millar wants to make a Saturday morning cartoon, I loved waking up Saturday morning and watching X-Men, Beast Wars or Mummies Alive. The quality of Saturday morning cartoons in terms of awesomeness have gone down. Give the kids something good to watch Mark!!
