The age of Marvel superheroes seems to be ablaze these days. “Kick-Ass” creator Mark Millar explained the possibility of the third installment for the unique superhero movie in the air at the moment. Read on to learn more about this scoop.
Looks like “Kick-Ass” has brought forth its possibility of going through a three-peat movie installment. Creator Mark Millar and artist John Romita said that the third movie is up in the air, but there’s still no official decision about it.
Millar and Romita pointed out that the numbers showed that a “three-peat” is possible. The first movie acquired $100 million and another $140 million on its DVD sales from its $28 million production budget.
“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. It’s definitely up in the air, and we’ll just have to see,” said Millar and Romita during their interview with CBM.
The second “Kick-Ass” movie somewhat downgraded its value and didn’t really maintain its wow factor like it did in the first film. In addition to that, their A-list co-star Jim Carrey also denounced the movie for its violence. This then caused the production to delay any further plans of finishing up the story in time for the last installment.
It is a common fact that superheroes are made and not born. However, it usually requires some immense amount of money, a fluke in your genetics or some wild experimentation in order for you to achieve that. The sense for justice usually comes in second but not for the superhero “Kick-Ass” as he was born out of sheer will and determination. Dave Lizewski, who was continuously played by Aaron Taylor Johnson (“Godzilla,” “Anna Karenina”) in the two first movies, became a symbol of justice in his city as he dedicated himself to fighting off criminals despite his lack of training and super powers.
Based on Screen Rant’s feature, “Kick -Ass” appeared to be a refreshing twist in the superhero genre during its 2010 release with director Matthew Vaughn. They released a sequel in 2013. It starred Johnson and Chloe Grace Moretz (“If I Stay,” “The Equalizer”), who reprised their roles as Kick-Ass and Hit Girl. It was directed by the “Never Back Down” visionary Jeff Wadlow.
Sky is definitely the limit for Hollywood, but the question about a movie’s feasibility is definitely something filmmakers should not dare to overlook, and that’s how the creators of “Kick-Ass” are pondering about their next installment.
That sums up the scoop on the possibility of “Kick-Ass 3.” Tune in to Movie News Guide (MNG) for the latest updates in the entertainment world.
