Say what you will about Kick-Ass creator Mark Millar, the man isn't afraid to throw around the C-word. In fact, he fancies it so much it might be the name to Kick-Ass 2's frightening new villain. Kick-Ass spoilers ahead!
We already know that the next Kick-Ass comic and movie will go even darker, and deal with the classic superhero whose identity is revealed to the world storyline. But little did we know there's another villain on the rise. At the Kick-Ass press conference at SXSW, comic book creator Millar revealed two possible names for his new bad guy.
What are your thoughts on continuing the adventures of Kick-Ass?
Matthew Vaughn: I have a lot of thoughts on it, but I'm not telling. That would be like tempting fate. If the film's a hit then I will start gauging, if it's not then it won't happen.
Chloe Moretz: Let me just add that I really want a purple Ducati in the second film.
Mark Millar: Red Mist becomes the Joker to [Kick-Ass], you know? But we're talking about another villain as well, so he'll almost be a sidekick to this other guy. My working [name is] somewhere between the motherfucker and the cunts. That's the two names I'm thinking of. I mean, it's better than the Joker, isn't it?
So there you go - can't wait to see that on posters promoting the film.
