A Kick-Ass reboot is coming, confirms Vaughn and Millar

October 25th, 2023 by Marc Comments

In the age of Invincible and The Boys, it should be no surprise that Kick-Ass is coming back… and coming back he is!

Speaking at New York Comic Con, director Matthew Vaughn spoke about his body of work and confirmed that everyone’s favourite green and yellow hero is set to make a return.

Speaking about the original Kick-Ass movie in 2010, Vaughn was keen to point out that it was a different kind of superhero movie and it challenged people’s perspective: “Kick-Ass sort of changed people’s perception of what a superhero film is at that time. So we’ll be doing it again.”

He was also keen to point out that Aaron Taylor-Johnson nor Chloë Grace Moretz would be returning as Kick-Ass or Hit-Girl but this was a full bricks-and-mortar reboot: “So it’s none of the characters from the other Kick-Ass. We’d like to bring them back after the reboot. This reboot is just going off on a tangent that I can’t really talk about now. But it’s fun.”

Kick-Ass creator Mark Millar took to social media, below, to confirm the news but that he “can say nothing until next year!”

I loved the first movie and the comics and, while I didn’t love the second movie, I’m excited to see what Millar and Vaughn have planned.

Thoughts? I know you have them! Voice-off in the usual ways on FTN’s FacebookTwitter and Instagram

DMs filled with people asking me about this. Can say nothing until next year!

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….
