Kick-Ass 2 Plot Details Revealed

The ultimate superhero comedy franchise returns next year!
Mark Millar's first movie adaptation of his own comic-book superhero parody Kick-Ass proved one of the cinematic highlights of 2010, a truly welcome blend of comedy and sheer hardcore violence that quickly amassed a cult following well beyond the graphic novel's fanbase. Now, we're moving towards a full sequel to the film, and the first details on how the narrative will pick up in Kick-Ass 2 and how Millar's comics have been adapted this time around can be seen below...
  • ON THE MOST VIOLENT SCENES OF THE GRAPHIC NOVEL: "Every horrible scene in the book will be in the film. The c**t line in the first one, everybody said 'there's no way you're getting that in the movie', but it happened and it's the same thing with this. Everybody is saying 'you can't have the gang rape scene with super villains' and 'you can't have the dog's head cut off', but every single one of those scenes will go in."
  • HOW THE HIT-GIRL SPIN OFF COMICS WILL BE ACCOUNTED FOR: "Hit-Girl will be the first 30 minutes of the movie and Kick-Ass 2 the other 70 minutes. Hit-Girl is structured as the first act."
Millar also went on to reveal that as with his comic books, the films are intended as part of a trilogy, so we'll inevitably be getting a third instalment in the not-too-distant future too! Kick-Ass 2 is set for release in Summer 2013.
