Mark Millar and Matthew Vaughn knew each other socially through Jane Goldman and her husband, but came to work together because of Thor (2011). Millar had sent Vaughn some suggestions for the Marvel adaptation, but Vaughn ultimately left that project. He came to Millar to see if he had any interesting ideas, nearly leading to a sequel to the Bible called "American Jesus". As they were discussing that, Millar mentioned Kick-Ass, and started sending Vaughn the early script for the comic. See more »
For someone who lives several floors up, after she's rescued, she climbs one flight of stairs before being outside just makes no sense. See more »
I always wondered why nobody did it before me. I mean, all those comic books, movies, TV shows. You think that one eccentric loner would've made himself a costume. I mean, is everyday life really so exciting? Are schools and offices so thrilling that I'm the only one who fantasized about this? Come on, be honest with yourself. At some point in our lives we all wanna be a superhero.
That's not me,by the way. That's some Armenia guy with a history of mental health problems.

Good but I'd rather have a Big Daddy and Hit girl Movie!
The first time I saw this film I was a bit disappointed I mean I loved the Big Daddy and Hit girl parts of the story I just didn't like the Kickass story all that much. His fight scenes were good but I just didn't care for the character or his group of friends the way I did for Big Daddy and Hit girl.
The second time watching it he did grow on me more but that could be because in the time between veiwings I read both Kickass graphic novels, so now this film is quite near the top of my fave comic book films (The Dark Knight, Sin City, Watchmen, X-men First class, Scott Pilgrimm Versus The World, The Crow).
This film did something something I thought o film could....it made Nicolas Cage cool again! 7/10
