Mark Millar teases big Kick-Ass & Hit-Girl news is on the way

  • JoBlo
Unlike the Kingsman series, the Kick-ass movies didn’t quite achieve liftoff into mainstream success.

In last few days, however, comic book creator Mark Millar has taken to social media to tease some big news regarding the series, and lord only knows what goodness is awaiting... Read More...

Mark Millar and Netflix announce The Magic Order

Mark Millar has announced his first comic book project for Netflix, with THR reporting that the Kick-Ass and Kingsman writer is penning a six-issue series entitled v, which will be illustrated by Olivier Coipel.

“We wanted to make a splash with our first book for Netflix and this is it,” said Millar. “I love dark fantasy and there’s an enormous gap in the market for something like this. Netflix hiring Olivier has also made me the happiest guy alive. I’ve been after him for almost ten years so to finally have our names in the same book is an absolute honor.”

The Magic Order will be the first comic published by the streaming giant, which purchased Millar’s Millarworld imprint back in August. It is described as “a new generational drama in which five families of magicians attempt to keep the world safe from unknown threats while living amongst humanity in secret.

Mark Millar teases a big Kick-Ass and Hit-Girl announcement

Comic book writer Mark Millar has taken to Twitter to tease a big announcement concerning the characters of Kick-Ass and Hit-Girl, complete with an image of Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Chloe Grace Moretz in character.

Right, this brilliance won't write itself. Time to help get a press release together for the big Kick-Ass and Hit-Girl news next week… pic.twitter.com/Z2hxrTgt4B

Mark Millar (@mrmarkmillar) November 9, 2017

Naturally, the assumption here is that we could be getting a third instalment of the movie series, which was originally planned before Kick-Ass 2 opened to mixed reviews and an underwhelming box office back in 2013.

Millar has recently sold his company Millarworld to Netflix, so it’s possible that the streaming giant could be looking to produce a new movie or TV adaptation. However, as Millar states, we should get an official announcement this coming week.

Are Kick-Ass 3 And A Hit Girl Spinoff Coming To Netflix?

Despite positive reviews and a decent box office take for 2010’s Kick-Ass, the once-burgeoning film franchise appears to be on the backburner following the 2013 sequel, which was met with far less praise and diminished box office returns.

Original director Matthew Vaughn has been keen on more follow-ups though and even spoke about doing a prequel focused on Chloe Grace Moretz’s Hit-Girl and Nicolas Cage’s Big Daddy, but additional tales about the hyper-violent street-level superheroes have hardly seemed likely, especially with stars Grace Moretz and Aaron Taylor-Johnson growing older and moving on to other film properties.

However, there still may be hope. Chalk this up as speculation for now, but we do have reason to believe that both a Kick-Ass 3 and a spinoff movie featuring Hit-Girl may be on their way to Netflix. Why do we think that? Well, as you surely know by now, Mark Millar (who created

Kick-Ass 3 and Hit-Girl Movie Coming to Netflix?

Kick-Ass 3 and Hit-Girl Movie Coming to Netflix?
It looks like we may be getting Kick-Ass 3 after all. And it looks like the movie could be heading to Netflix. While there's no official announcement yet, Mark Millar, who recently sold his company Millarworld to Netflix, is teasing an announcement related to Kick-Ass and Hit-Girl. While he couldn't say what's happening at the moment, it seems pretty likely that a new Kick-Ass movie is in the cards, and we could be getting that long rumored standalone Hit-Girl movie as well.

When the announcement that Millarworld and all of its properties had been sold to Netflix, it was pretty clear that Kingsman and Kick-Ass weren't part of the deal. Or, at least it seemed that way. Fox seems to be pretty happy with Kingsman, but Lionsgate has been sitting on Kick-Ass ever since Kick-Ass 2 failed to meet expectations at the box office in 2013. Could it be that Netflix and

Mark Millar Unveils ‘The Magic Order’ as First Comic Franchise for Netflix
Mark Millar is about to work some sorcery over at Netflix. And in case it’s not clear, we’re talking real, physical comic books (not a TV series adaptation). The mastermind behind comics like “Civil War,” “Wanted,” “Kick-Ass,” “Kingsman: The Secret Service” revealed Tuesday that he’s chosen “The Magic Order” to be the first franchise he will create for Netflix, following the acquisition of Millarworld by the streaming service in August. Millar will pen the comic, with Marvel’s Olivier Coipel — who has lent his hand to “Thor,” “The Avengers,” and “The Amazing Spider-Man” — selected as the first volume’s artist.

Back in August, Netflix made a huge move toward producing even more original content by acquiring Millarworld, Mark Millar's creator-owned comic book banner that's home to such titles as Wanted, Kick-Ass, and Kingsman.

Now, with the vast resources and kinetic energy of Netflix behind Millarworld, the acclaimed author is ready to unleash a barrage of new content to current fans and new converts alike. Millar has …

How fares the British film industry?

Dan Cooper Oct 27, 2017

It's been a big year for British films, it seems. But just how British are they?

How indeed is the British film industry? Fire off this particular question into the vastness of cyberspace and you’d be forgiven for thinking that things have never been rosier. A great sprawl of articles tumble forth, spewing forth hugely impressive numbers, whilst also celebrating the talent of our actors and our crews. Unsurprisingly, the runaway success of franchises such as Bond, Harry Potter and Lord Of The Rings also dominate most search-engine results.

In a nutshell then, the British film industry is in a state of rude health and we should all congratulate ourselves by heading down to our local cinema to watch a British film, you know, to bask in that lovely glow of pride that naturally occurs when the place that you’re from becomes relatively good at something important.

Matthew Vaughn and Stardust, 10 years on

Mark Harrison Oct 19, 2017

We salute the 10th anniversary of Matthew Vaughn's wonderful Stardust...

“A philosopher once asked, 'Are we human because we gaze at the stars, or do we gaze at them because we are human?' Pointless, really. Do the stars gaze back? Now, that's a question.”

Comic book movies are Matthew Vaughn's speciality. Between Kick-Ass, X-Men: First Class and the Kingsman franchise, he's been a constant and eclectic presence as these films have boomed, and if reports are to be believed, his next film could be about either Flash Gordon or Superman.

But going back even further than Mark Millar or Marvel, Vaughn's first comic book movie was his adaptation of Neil Gaiman's Stardust, which arrived in UK cinemas ten years ago this week. Before it was published as a novel in 1999, Gaiman conceived the postmodern fairy tale as a 'prestige' comic; the four-issue mini-series

‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’ Review

Kingsman: The Golden Circle‘ is an interesting film. Not only is it Director Matthew Vaughn‘s first sequel to his own work, but it is also perhaps the least Vaughn-esque of his entire filmography, structurally speaking. If you look back on Vaughn’s movies, you’ll notice a structural through line that connects all of Vaughn’s and co-screenwriter/frequent collaborator Jane Goldman‘s scripts. “Stardust“, “Kick-Ass“, “X-Men: First Class“, and “Kingsman: The Secret Service” all share what is essentially a very refined version of The Monomyth, a.k.a. “The Hero’s Journey” told through Vaughn’s dynamic filmmaking style. If you hold films of his like “Kick-Ass” and “The Secret Service” next to each other, you begin to notice that Vaughn has essentially made the same film for the last few years, although each individual entry becomes augmented through the genre in which each story is being told.
