“Kick Ass 2” – (probably) Never Going To Happen

Matthew Vaughn, director of the upcoming film, “X-men: First Class” says that he probably will not be returning to do another “Kick Ass” film.

According to Vaughn:

Everyone says we’re doing Kick-Ass 2 but… the weird thing about Kick-Ass 2 is I’d love to do it, because I enjoyed it so much, but I’m a big believer that if you’re going to do a sequel it’s got to be as good as the first one if not better. I just don’t know how I could…

My business brain just says do Kick-Ass 2, shoot it and get it out there and it would make a lot of money but I really do love that movie. It was a special moment to me making that film and I don’t want to spoil it. I’m not saying it’s as good as Pulp Fiction but I think it would be weird if Tarantino did Pulp Fiction 2. Everything that made Kick-Ass original and fun, if you do it again, it would be crass…

It is interesting in a world that is dominated by sequels and prequels, it seems far-fetched that we won’t get a “Kick Ass” sequel. I understand where Vaughn is coming from. But to be the epitome of comic books in the real world, wouldn’t it make sense to really go back to the “Kick Ass” world and see what happens in a different period of the character’s life?

There is work on a sequel being produced by Marvel and Mark Millar. So, we’ll see if his position changes.
