Mark Miller Reveals First 30 Minutes of Kick-Ass 2 Will Focus on Hit-Girl

Mark Millar, the creator of the ‘Kick-Ass’ comic book series, has revealed that the first 30 minutes of the sequel to the film will focus on the Hit-Girl character, Slashfilm is reporting. While in volume 2 of the comic book series, Hit-Girl is sidelined because she ultimately gives up her powers, ‘Kick-Ass 2’ director Jeff Wadlow said he plans to make the character a major part of the film.

Millar added that ‘Kick-Ass 2’ will be broken up into two pieces, with the emphasis returning to the title character, played by Aaron Johnson, during the last 70 minutes. Wadlow added that he wants to explore what happens to Hit-Girl, played by Chloe Moretz, when she gives up her powers.

The plan rests upon whether or not Moretz, who has become one of the most in-demand actresses of her age since the first ‘Kick-Ass’ was released in 2010, will have room in her schedule. She currently has six other films in pre-production. However, Millar said that “as far as we know everyone is scheduled to come back…(Chloe) has a busy schedule but she has to stop sometime.” Wadlow added that when he spoke to Moretz, she was “very excited about what we’re doing with Hit-Girl.

Millar added that ‘Kick-Ass 2’ won’t be toned down from its comic-book inspiration. “Every horrible scene in the book will be in the film,” he said.
