It seems like Kick-Ass and Hit-Girl will suit up again for another adventure.
Mark Millar, the writer who had created the Kick-Ass graphic novel and the superheroes therein had taken to Twitter and teased that an announcement regarding the franchise will be coming up next week.
He used photos from the previous two Kick-Ass movies, and they featured Aaron Taylor-Johnson as Kick-Ass and Chloe Moretz as Hit-Girl. These suggest that the announcement may be new details on a third Kick-Ass movie.
“Next Week: The beans spilled on Kick-Ass and Hit-Girl. Get excited!” Millar Tweeted on Wednesday. He followed that up on Thursday with a tweet reading, “Right, this brilliance won’t write itself. Time to help get a press release together for the big Kick-Ass and Hit-Girl news next week…” and on Friday with a tweet using photos of the Kick-Ass and Hit-Girl logos that reads, “Some big news next week.”
Take a look:
There were plans for its threequel, but fans had believed that the plans might have been canceled after Kick-Ass did not live up to the box office expectations set by the first movie.
Three Kick-Ass comic book series have been published and a Hit-Girl spinoff series. Kick-Ass 3 was the final story arc of the Kick-Ass saga.
Millar had sold his Millarworld comic book imprint to Netflix and then announced The Magic Order, his new series under the Netflix deal. The sale to Netflix did not include rights to Kick-Ass or Kingsman since the rights rest elsewhere.
The series follows a teenager who decides that he wants to become a superhero and calls himself “Kick-Ass.” The first Kick-Ass movie was released in 2010 and earned $96.2 million. The sequel in 2013 made $60.7 million at the box office.
