Kick-Ass 3 movie is PROBABLY not going to happen says comic creator Mark Millar

August 10th, 2014 by Marc Comments

Looks like Kick-Ass 2 (which wasn’t THAT bad) may be the nail in the coffin for any potential future instalments of the series… which, given that the first one is still a great watch on so many levels, is a real shame.

Talking to CBR, the comic series creator Mark Millar says it looks like it’s game over: “With ‘Kick-Ass,’ it was a no brainer,” he said, “It was made for $28 million and made $100 million back and then made another $140 million on DVD. So for the money guys, it was a $28 million investment that made $240 million. That’s a slam dunk. You’re getting your sequel.

“The second one didn’t make as much. It cost a little less at around $24 million, made $61 million and made about $100 million again on DVD and TV rights. It was still profitable. It was by no means “The Lone Ranger.” But does that mean we’ll make another one again? I don’t know.”

But, never say never: “Matthew Vaughn is a guy who I trust to make that decision. If he decides he does want to do it, I know he’ll get it done well. And he’s got the movie rights, so it’s ultimately his decision. I speak to Matthew every day, and we haven’t discussed ‘Kick-Ass 3′ so who knows? The option is always open.”

Would you like to see a third instalment of the franchise or was the second one enough for you? We want to know…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
