We haven't heard much at all about a sequel to Matthew Vaughn's Kick-Ass and it seems the follow-up will hit the comic book stands first. Forces of Geek ran a new press release for a new venture by Mark Millar and John Romita Jr. entitled CLiNT Magazine, which revealed that a sequel is being planned. Here's an excerpt from the press release below.

"Millar is also launching his sequel to the hit Kick-Ass movie in the first issue of the comic. "Kick-Ass 2: Balls To The Wall" has been scheduled for production in 2011 for a 2012 cinema release, but fans of the first movie can find out what happens two years in advance by picking up CLiNT."

The press release is made even more intriguing with the news yesterday that Kick-Ass director Matthew Vaughn has officially signed on to direct X-Men: First Class, which is being fast-tracked for a June 3, 2011 release. It is possible that if Vaughn starts filming this summer or fall, that he could possibly be ready to take the helm on a Kick-Ass sequel.
