When we spoke to artist and co-creator John Romita Jr. last spring he said that he and writer Mark Millar were busy working on a follow up to the comic called "Balls to the Wall." Then about a month ago, Millar said on BBC radio that due to the extremely good DVD sales the sequel had already been green-lit. But with director Matthew Vaughn and his writing partner Jane Goldman currently working on X-Men: First Class, there is some question as to when Kick-Ass 2: Balls to the Wall might begin production. We recently had a chance to catch up with the star of Kick-Ass, Aaron Johnson, while he was out promoting his new film Nowhere Boy, where the actor portrays rock n' roll legend John Lennon. We asked Johnson about the upcoming sequel and he confirmed that he was looking forward to doing it and thought it would probably begin shooting once Matthew Vaughn is done making X-Men: First Class. He finished by adding this:
I'm letting them just do what they want to do and we'll come to it when we come to it. But I know that they are doing it."
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.
