An Exclusive Preview of Matthew Vaughn’s Kick-Ass !


SuperHeroHype has an exclusive early look at Matthew Vaughn’s ultra-violent superhero action flick Kick-Ass, based on the comic series from Mark Millar (Wanted) and John Romita, Jr., having had a chance to sit down with the creative team on both sides of the camera to get a taste of what to expect.

Kick-Ass is Vaughn’s third movie after the British crime-thriller Layer Cake and his adaptation of Neil Gaiman and Charles Vess’ Stardust. It’s the story of David Lizewski, played by Aaron Johnson, a geeky comic book nerd who decides to put on a costume and fight crime, only to find out fighting crime isn’t as easy as Spider-Man makes it look. Along the way, he meets fellow heroes Red Mist (Christopher Mintz-Plasse), and the father-daughter team of Big Daddy and Hit Girl (Nicolas Cage and Chloe Moretz).

You can read full interviews with Mark Millar and John Romita, Jr., Matthew Vaughn and co-writer Jane Goodman over on SuperHeroHype.

Kick-Ass opens on April 16, but it will also kick-off the 2010 SXSW Film Festival in Austin, Texas on March 12.
