The first film followed Dave Lizewski, an unnoticed high school student and comic book fan who one day decides to become a super-hero, even though he has no powers, training or meaningful reason to do so.
The writer spoke about where some of the second films inspiration came from:
"It's really odd. I watch the films and think, my God, that's what happened to me," he says. "It is done subconsciously. Even daft things, like at school there was somebody I fancied who really liked Dynasty. I started watching it so that I could chat to her about it. That is in Kick-Ass 2: Balls to the Wall. I gave Kick-Ass's parents the same names as my parents.
"My dad and I were living alone together after my mum died when I was 14 and that's reflected in Kick-Ass. I grew up wanting to be a superhero. You find a lot of these things turn out to be autobiographical."
"We shoot Kick-Ass 2: Balls to the Wall and American Jesus this summer."
Production is expected to begin this summer according to Mark Millar.
