Kick-Ass 2

(2013)

Kick-Ass, Hit Girl and Red Mist return for the follow-up to 2010's irreverent global hit: Kick-Ass 2. After Kick-Ass' (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) insane bravery inspires a new wave of self-made masked crusaders, led by the badass Colonel Stars and Stripes (Jim Carrey), our hero joins them on patrol. When these amateur superheroes are hunted down by Red Mist (Christopher Mintz-Plasse)—reborn as The Mother F%&*^r—only the blade-wielding Hit Girl (Chloë Grace Moretz) can prevent their annihilation.

When we last saw junior assassin Hit Girl and young vigilante Kick-Ass, they were trying to live as normal teenagers Mindy and Dave. With graduation looming and uncertain what to do, Dave decides to start the world's first superhero team with Mindy. Unfortunately, when Mindy is busted for sneaking out as Hit Girl, she's forced to retire—leaving her to navigate the terrifying world of high-school mean girls on her own. With no one left to turn to, Dave joins forces with Justice Forever, run by a born-again ex-mobster named Colonel Stars and Stripes.

Just as they start to make a real difference on the streets, the world's first super villain, The Mother F%&*^r, assembles his own evil league and puts a plan in motion to make Kick-Ass and Hit Girl pay for what they did to his dad. But there's only one problem with his scheme: If you mess with one member of Justice Forever, you mess with them all.

‘Kick-Ass 3’ Is Not Moving Forward at This Time

‘Kick-Ass 3’ Is Not Moving Forward at This Time

Shortly after Kick-Ass hit theaters in 2010, plans for a sequel were already under way, since it made just under $100 million worldwide from a $28 million production budget. The follow-up Kick-Ass 2 didn't do quite as well, though, earning just over $60 million worldwide from a $24 million budget, leaving the future of the franchise in question.

Mark Millar, who co-created the comic book series with John Romita Jr., revealed in a new interview with Comic Book Resources that he isn't quite sure if Kick-Ass 3 will happen or not."I can tell you exactly where we're at. I'm always 100% straight up with these things -- to the point where I'm always revealing stuff two or three years before it's supposed to get out. I know I told you immediately after we got the first weekend after Kick-Ass came out that we were doing Kick-Ass 2. And (Kick-Ass director) Matthew (Vaughn had engaged (Kick-Ass 2 director) Jeff (Wadlow) by the following September, but no official announcement was made until the following year. But what you can always do is look at the opening box office to see how much money it's going to take in and see what the development possibilities will be.
