Mark Millar recently interview with Scotland's Daily Report and discussed some interesting ideas about how he was inspired to write the films.

The first film followed Dave Lizewski, an unnoticed high school student and comic book fan who one day decides to become a super-hero, even though he has no powers, training or meaningful reason to do so.

The writer spoke about where some of the second films inspiration came from:

"It's really odd. I watch the films and think, my God, that's what happened to me," he says. "It is done subconsciously. Even daft things, like at school there was somebody I fancied who really liked Dynasty. I started watching it so that I could chat to her about it. That is in Kick-Ass 2: Balls to the Wall. I gave Kick-Ass's parents the same names as my parents.

"My dad and I were living alone together after my mum died when I was 14 and that's reflected in Kick-Ass. I grew up wanting to be a superhero. You find a lot of these things turn out to be autobiographical."

"We shoot Kick-Ass 2: Balls to the Wall and American Jesus this summer."


The writer is expecting Matthew Vaughn to be involved, not as a director but as a producer. Director Matthew Vaughn ruled himself out of the project, because of the X-Men: First Class Sequel.

Production is expected to begin this summer according to Mark Millar.

Kick-Ass 2 was released August 16th, 2013 and stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Chloe Moretz, Morris Chestnut, Claudia Lee, Amy Anzel, Clark Duke, Augustus Prew, Mary Kitchen. The film is directed by Jeff Wadlow.

    I'll only believe it once Vaughn states it. Millar has always been talking about a sequel but nothing has happened. It's like Rodriguez and Sin City 2.

    @XxNickTheFilmCriticXx I agree, I just wanna know how far production is on First Class 2 cuz I could have sworn I read somewhere theyve only greenlighted it, they havent even got a script wirtten just ideas. Im pretty sure Vaughn can direct it before First Class 2

    What is Matthew Vaughn thinking? He started with "Kick-Ass" first, and it was much better than "X-Men: First Class". If they don't work something out with Matthew Vaughn, or get a good, fitting director, I can't say I'm looking forward to this one.
