With No Power Comes Limited Ability: Six Not-So-Super Superheroes

10 hours ago | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

As we are still recovering from how great Guardians of The Galaxy turned out be it seems James Gunn may have upped the proverbial ante in the genre. There is, however, a certain degree of irony as this intergalactic gang of superhero misfits are, in fact, led by a man, Peter Quill, who seemingly possess no mystical powers beyond his wit and cunning.

In what is considered by many to be Marvel’s best film to date, we take a look at some of the great superheroes who, like Quill, are simply mere mortals. But great power can come at a price as we also look at those superheroes who aren’t that great and didn’t quite take off.

We take a look at six not-so-super superheroes. Buckle in.

Based on the best-selling novel by Gayle Forman, If I Stay tells the story of Mia Hall (Chloë Grace Moretz), a young girl who is deciding whether to pursue her musical dreams as a cellist at Juilliard or follow a different path with the love of her life, Adam (Jamie Blackley), who’s on the verge of becoming a rock star.  When a tragic accident changes everything in an instant, Mia is caught between life and death with only one decision left to make. At the conference at the film’s press day, actress Chloë Grace Moretz talked about when she knew that she wanted to act for the rest of her life, what this journey has been like for her, why she finds herself drawn to dark and damaged characters, how much she had to practice the cello to look believable, how she deals with long distance relationships in her own life, »

Career Watch: Will 'Hit Girl' Chloe Grace Moretz Kick Ass This Fall?

18 August 2014 3:05 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

At 17, Chloe Grace Moretz is the It girl for movie geeks, thanks to her Comic-Con-approved resume of haunted houses (2005’s “The Amityville Horror”), vampires (2010’s “Let Me In” and 2012’s “Dark Shadows”),  shy girls with secret powers (2013’s “Carrie”) and her breakout role as foul-mouthed avenger Hit-Girl in 2010’s "Kick-Ass" and its 2013 sequel. This Friday brings a romantic melodrama that takes direct aim at female devotees of young-adult fiction. In “If I Stay,” based on Gayle Forman’s popular novel,  Moretz is a young cellist who must choose between life and death after falling into a coma following a tragic car accident. With Ya adaptation “The Giver” doing middling business with an estimated opening weekend gross of $12.7 million, the door is open for “If I Stay” to be a keeper if it pleases the book’s fan base as well as the underserved female audience. Signature line:  “Okay you c**ts, »

There Should Be A(nother) Sequel: 'National Treasure'

17 August 2014 8:50 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Confession: I think Nicolas Cage is a great actor. And not just because of Oscar-quality performances like those in Adaptation and Leaving Las Vegas. No, the movie that introduced me to Cage’s gifts was National Treasure. And while Cage did return to the big screen for a sequel, the series deserves to become an even bigger franchise.

The National Treasure movies were made in the wake of Dan Brown’s The Da Vinci Code, an immensely popular, thrilling, if not particularly well-written novel about conspiracy theories and mini-art history lessons. National Treasure is the American Da Vinci Code—and »

Mark Millar Says a ‘Kick Ass 3′ Movie Isn’t in Development

11 August 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

At the comic shop, Kick-Ass is over. The final issue of the series, Kick-Ass 3 #8, recently hit shelves, ending a six-year run for writer Mark Millar and artist John Romita Jr. That run didn’t only begin with the comics though. Filmmaker Matthew Vaughn developed the first Kick-Ass movie in tandem with Millar and Romita […]

Did Kick-ass 3 Finale Have a Mind-Blowing Reveal?

11 August 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Spoilers ahead for anyone who hasn't read Mark Millar and John Romita Jr.'s Kick-Ass 3 finale. Cbm pointed out something incredibly interesting that kind of blew my mind. There's a couple little Easter eggs in there that indicate that all the events that happened after issue #2 could have been a hallucination as a result from a coma Dave has been in after he got the shit kicked out of him. They never come right out and say it, but here are the clues that may prove this to be true.

"Near the end of Kick-Ass 3 #8, there's a scene with Dave and his girlfriend Val (a nurse) in the hospital. However, as you can see from the images below, Dave Lizewski's name is written on the list of patients in the ICU unit, something which makes little sense considering the fact that he's physically fine for the most part here."

Comic creators speak up about Kick-Ass 3 and against Jim Carrey

11 August 2014 4:35 AM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

There's a thin line between dark humor and poor taste when it comes to the Kick-ass films, and I think the direction of Matthew Vaughn allowed the first to fall into one category and the lack thereof left the sequel far into the second. Kick-ass 2 didn't garner the ratings or money of the first but it was still somewhat profitable. The creators of the comic, Mark Millar and John Romita Jr., recently spoke up about the possibility of a third, as well as co-star Jim Carrey who »

Mark Millar, the creator and author of the Kick-Ass comic series, has just completed the print version of his amateur superhero story - and he's been discussing the possibility of a third film, saying it's very much "up in the air".

Kick-Ass 3 movie plans "up in the air"

10 August 2014 10:46 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Mark Millar reveals the state of play with a Kick-Ass 3 movie...

Having released the final instalment of his Kick-Ass comic book last week, Mark Millar has addressed the chances of there being a third and final movie in a new interview.

Chatting to Comic Book Resources, Millar acknowledged that Kick-Ass 2 didn't do as well as Kick-Ass at the box office. Whilst the decision to make a sequel to the first movie was "a no brainer", with the second, "it cost a little less at around $24m, made $61m and made about $100m again on DVD and TV rights. It was still profitable. It was by no means The Lone Ranger".

So will a Kick-Ass 3 movie happen? "I don't know. it's definitely up in the air, and we'll just have to see. Matthew [Vaughn] is a guy who I trust to make that decision". Vaughn directed the first Kick-Ass movie, and oversaw the second. »

Kick Ass 3 Remains A Possibility

10 August 2014 3:23 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Is it possible Kick Ass 3 is a thing? Fans of the movies may not realize that the comics have been going for a while now, deepening and complicating the life of Dave Lizewski and Mindy MacReady, aka Kick Ass and Hit Girl. That second movie didn't exactly light the world on fire, however, so could there really be enough left in the tank to close out the trilogy? In an interview with the architects of the Kick Ass universe, Mark Millar and John Romita Jr., at Comic Book Resources, the writer and the artist leave the door open for a possible Kick-Ass 3 - but only a bit. Millar says, "With Kick-Ass, it was a no brainer. It was made for $28 million and made $100 million back, and then made another $140 million on DVD. So for the money guys, it was a $28 million investment that made $240 million. That's a slam dunk. You're »

‘Kick-Ass’ Comicbook Creator on ‘Kick-Ass 3′: ‘It’s Definitely Up in the Air’

10 August 2014 9:43 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Is Kick-Ass looking at a three-peat? According to Mark Millar, the creator of the comicbook series on which the movies are based, it’s all still up in the air.

The Matthew Vaughn-directed 2010 “Kick-Ass” was a huge surprise hit, recruiting Aaron Taylor-Johnson as the unlikely titular superhero and Chloe Grace Moretz as the ferocious Hit-Girl. It brought in nearly $100 million at the box office on a tiny $28 million budget and, according to Millar, earned $140 million on DVD sales.

Kick-Ass 2,” in 2013, however, failed to impress as much as its predecessor, even with new cast addition Jim Carrey and director Jeff Wadlow (“Never Back Down”), so prospects of a three-quel are unclear, as Millar recently explained to Comic Book Resources.

“The second one didn’t make as much.” he said. “It cost a little less at around $24 million, made $61 million and made about $100 million again on DVD and TV rights. »

Mark Millar ‘Doesn’t Know’ If ‘Kick-Ass 3′ Will Get Made

9 August 2014 11:43 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

The 2010 film Kick-Ass seemed like a refreshing twist on the superhero genre at the time. Based on Mark Millar’s ultra-violent comic book series and directed by Matthew Vaughn, it followed the titular hero, a kid named Dave Lizewski (Aaron Taylor-Johnson), who decided to take down criminals despite a lack of training or super powers.

The 2013 follow-up Kick-Ass 2 was directed by Never Back Down helmer Jeff Wadlow and saw Kick-Ass team up with the now-teenaged Hit-Girl (Chloe Grace Moretz) to join forces with other superheroes like the deranged Col. Stars and Stripes (Jim Carrey). While we liked it well enough, the sequel failed to hit the same box office stride ...

'Kick-Ass 3' Is Not Moving Forward at This Time

8 August 2014 3:59 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Shortly after Kick-Ass hit theaters in 2010, plans for a sequel were already under way, since it made just under $100 million worldwide from a $28 million production budget. The follow-up Kick-Ass 2 didn't do quite as well, though, earning just over $60 million worldwide from a $24 million budget, leaving the future of the franchise in question.

Mark Millar, who co-created the comic book series with John Romita Jr., revealed in a new interview with Comic Book Resources that he isn't quite sure if Kick-Ass 3 will happen or not.

"I can tell you exactly where we're at. I'm always 100% straight up with these things -- to the point where I'm always revealing stuff two or three years before it's supposed to get out. I know I told you immediately after we got the first weekend after Kick-Ass came out that we were doing Kick-Ass 2. And (Kick-Ass director) Matthew (Vaughn had engaged (Kick-Ass 2 director »

No "Evil Dead 2" Or "Kick Ass 3" Coming?

8 August 2014 2:11 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

The remake of the "Evil Dead" came and went last year without much of an impact. Some liked it, some hated it, most didn't really care. That blood-soaked and much darker interpretation of Sami Raimi's pulpy classic pulled in a solid $97 million worldwide - not bad for a low-budget horror film. Even so, there hasn't really been a huge demand for a sequel.

Now it looks like we won't be getting one. The film's leading star and 'final girl', Jane Levy, tells Bloody Disgusting that there are currently no plans for a follow-up:

"I don't think they're gonna make it. I mean, they're always coming up with a new thing - now I hear they're making a TV show. I was like, what? [Laughs]. I honestly don't know, but it doesn't seem like there's going to be an Evil Dead 2 anytime soon. At least, not with me in it."

Mark Millar says he’s had no discussions with Matthew Vaughn about Kick-Ass 3 movie

8 August 2014 1:41 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last week, Marvel imprint Icon released issue #8 of Kick-Ass 3, bringing to a close the cult comic book series from writer Mark Millar and artist John Romita, Jr., and Comic Book Resources managed to nab an interview with the creators, during which Millar was asked about the chances of the latest series making it to the big screen.

“I can tell you exactly where we’re at,” states Millar. “ I know I told you immediately after we got the first weekend after Kick-Ass came out that we were doing Kick-Ass 2. And Matthew Vaughn had engaged Jeff Wadlow by the following September, but no official announcement was made until the following year. But what you can always do is look at the opening box office to see how much money it’s going to take in and see what the development possibilities will be. With Kick-Ass, it was a no brainer. »
