After the less-the-stellar box office results and reviews of “Kick-Ass 2″, the franchise seemed to be dead in the water. Now Matthew Vaughn, who directed the first film and co-produced the second, says that a “Hit-Girl” prequel could be on the horizon. In a recent interview, Vaughn stated, “Do you know what’s going to be next if I do it…we’ve finished plotting it. What we have to do is, we’ve got to do the ‘X-Men: First Class’ to the Kick-Ass world. We lost a few fans on Kick-Ass 2. It wasn’t as loved as one would’ve hoped. So we have this idea for a Hit-Girl prequel. It’s a really strong, really simple prequel where I think we can regain the love and the passion. If that happens, I’m pretty sure I can persuade Aaron and Chloe to come back and finish the story of Kick-Ass with ‘Kick-Ass 3′. Mark and I have already plotted Hit Girl. We have to get the script done next. It’s so far out there, you have no idea.”

Vaughn went on to say that he would not direct the third film but would look for a very bold and clever director like “The Raid” helmer Gareth Evans.

MightyTANK1 says:

how can you do a prequel after she finished puberty?

Arbhall McDougall says:

Im okay with a Kick Ass3 but a Hitgirl prequel no. Hell no. A Hit Girl
stand alone, Im up for and kind of excited for. 

Michael Castillo says:

I’ll never stop saying it but Rain Wilson should be in kickass3 as his
character from super. 

Dimitri Michael Gragirene says:

I have not seen the first Kick-Ass film and I definitely might not bother
watching the second Kick-Ass film at all since I heard it sucked and not
many people saw it. Do I want a Hit-Girl prequel? Nope. Do I want a 3 and
final Kick-Ass movie to happen? Ehh unless Matthew Vaughn confirmes one day
that its happening and stuff, I’m not interested in wanting Kick-Ass 3 to
happen at all so pretty much Amirose is right. The franchise is dead under
the water

Niru-Kun says:

The only reason people didn’t like Kick Ass 2 is because of the stupid Jim
Carrey controversey. If he had kept his mouth shut it would have gotten
better box office and better reviews.

dragonrings14 says:

When it comes to comic book movies Kick-Ass just isn’t my cup of tea. I
like Marvel but I’d rather see films in their main universe. As for
Kick-Ass specifically, the films were kinda shit. Like really bad. I
enjoyed the first one purely for shock value. But really on second viewing
you see it is poorly made. Also Jim Carey did not hurt the second movies
box office. If anything that bad press made more people see it. I might
give Kingsman a go but again, just being Marvel imprints does not
necessarily mean the films will be good.

Kelly Davis says:

Chloe Grace Moretz is definitely my girl crush, she is so sophisticated for
her age. 

teddybruscie says:

Or they can combine the two franchises into the same universe and put
Hit-Girl with the Kingsmen and leave Kick-Ass completely out of this. I’ve
said it before, Kickass is completely irrelevant in the film, people love
hit-girl. Give us more hit-girl. Put her in with Kingsmen and call it a

Stanley Kuo says:

Matthew Vaughn is my favorite director, I’d watch anything that he directs.
Having say that I hope he will turn his attention to Star Wars and Marvel
movies instead of Kick Ass and Hit Girl. That universe is not really worth
Vaughn’s time, and unless he’s willing to direct those films I have zero
interest in them. 

Tate Hildyard says:

Isn’t Chloe Moretz Grace too old for a prequel?

StarOfElyon says:

She’s already 18? Crap, there goes my hope of seeing her play Young
Avenger’s Cassandra Lang in the future.

Mark Mane says:

How you do this
KickAss 2
HitGirl – Its a prequel before 3. Instead of being before the first movie
KickAss 3

Mojofilms Productions says:

I don’t understand why people hate Kick Ass 2. It’s awesome and not to
mention that it’s far more closer to the comic than the first film.

DaveGX says:

I don’ understand how the hell they’re going to continue Kick-Ass 3. Chris
DiAmico is hospitalized, he can barely move around much. Who else is going
to have beef with him? As for a Hit-Girl prequel? Ehh, maybe. But yea
I’m pretty certain Aaron said he wasn’t interested, and Chloe too, except
that she’d possibly do it.


Would love to see Chloe play Gwen Stacy in the new Spiderman since there
taking Spiderman back to high school 

Kenny Schultz says:

Anything to see Big Daddy again…

rurutu M says:

Hitgirl’s mom was the bride from Kill Bill

Mr Django says:

Yes! I want a Hitgirl movie! &
Kick Ass 3! It needs to happen! 

pablo sanchez says:

I think kick ass 2 is ok but I love the finale

Mavis Abe says:

Sounds like a plan. 

BiscuitKilla02 says:

There will not be a kickass 3. And if there was, Im pretty sure no one
would really want to see it. The 1st one was brilliant, the 2nd one was OK.
I mean the more movies they will make of kickass, the less viewers there
will be. I wouldnt like to see a 3rd one, but the idea of hit girl sounds

finalfantasy696969 says:

Good to see everyones praise of Kingsmen. I love that film and people
should watch it :D

Couch Tomato says:

I hated, hated, hated, loathed Kick-Ass 2. It was a horrible script with
horrible direction.

TheSantLee says:

I Like the idea of having KA3 but I don’t like the idea of a prequel to
I want to see Chloë as Hit girl we don’t need another actress!! Chloë is
perfect for this role !

DJ Kenter says:

So I guess Kristian and Mark like Kingsmen…

ddm62571 says:

I would like to see Mathew Vaughn direct a Star Wars movie!

Irelyn Whalen says:

Yesssss hit-girl prequel!!! And kick-ass 3!!! I so hope this happens.

thesawyerjoe says:

I’d rather see a big daddy prequel

desi1790 says:

I would like a ‘Hit Girl’ spin off. She character was more interesting to

Jonathan Ulloa says:

where is john schnepp to make sense of this comic news, Mark Millar also
created the Hit-Girl so im sure the movie will be good

strongforce5 says:
