Though “Kick-Ass 2” didn’t do too well in theaters and is largely considered a poor sequel, comic creator Mark Millar might not be done with the cinematic world of Dave Lizewski. Or, more specifically, Mindy McCready.
“I love the idea of there being Hit-Girl movies,” Millar said in an interview, “it has to be the right story though. We have a crazy idea for it, and every now and then I think, ‘Is this too crazy?’ Because it’s kind of insane. Would the world accept this? It makes ‘Kick-Ass’ look like ‘Finding Nemo.’ Matthew [Vaughn] and I have chatted about it in the pub, and it’s fine in the pub, but when we’re being interviewed two years later, is it going to be terrifying? So I don’t know, it seems a fun thing, though.”
Millar wrote a “Hit-Girl” solo series in 2012, and there was talk of a Gareth Evans directed film some years back, but that never came to fruition. However, Millar thinks the time could actually be perfect for the character to get a solo movie considering the boom in female-led action films and franchises.
“It’s funny, because Hit Girl was slightly pre-dated by about a year, before those kick-ass action heroine characters like ‘The Hunger Games’ and ‘Hanna’ and those kinds of things came along,” he said, adding, “And now I feel is a great time for her, so it could be really interesting.”
