Fans last saw Kick-Ass 2 in 2013; since then, they have been curious to know when Kick-Ass 3 will return. Well, it’s been over 11 years, yet the creator hasn’t discussed the third movie. However, a couple of years ago, the creator opened up about their plans for Kick-Ass 3. So is it happening? Well, the movie star Chloe Grace Moretz has also talked about her return under one condition. So is this mean the movie is in underproduction? Well, Chloe has much to say about the film and how far it will take to return. So without wasting much time, let’s see what happens next.
Based on the graphic novel Kick-Ass: The Dave Lizewski Years, Kick-Ass follows Dave Lizewski’s misadventure. Four years after Damon Macready’s death, Dave decided to become a real hero and started training with Hit-Girl (Mindy Macready). However, his girlfriend, Katie Deauxma thought he was cheating on her with Mindy, so she broke up with him. Meanwhile, Chris D’Amico became a supervillain after his father’s death. He gathered a gang of supervillains and named them the Toxic Mega Cunts, swearing vengeance against Kick-Ass.
Kick-Ass 3: Is It Happening?
Back in 2013, Mark Miller revealed that the future of the third installment was based on the second film. They seemed excited about their next project. But sadly, the second film received mixed reviews from critics and was considered inferior to the first film. Although in the same year, he said that the third film would be the final one, there have been over 11 years, and still, the creators haven’t opened up about Kick-Ass 3. During a conversation with ScreenRant, Mark revealed that, currently, there were no plans for the third film. He said sometimes it popped up about a third film of Kick-Ass. But the creator hasn’t discussed the movie with Mark yet.
He also said the creator Matthew Vaughn is one of his best friends, and they talk three times a week. They even had a movie together named Kingsman: The Secret Service. However, there’s no current plan for Kick-Ass 3. Mark revealed that Vaughn has a deal with Apple while he has deals with Netflix. Speaking about the Kick-Ass universe, it needs time and great effort. So at this moment, there’s no plan to return. But Mark said that they might return with the potential story sometime in the future, and it will be the big final storyline. Now it remains unclear whether or not Kick-Ass 3 is happening.
Vaughn Hints At Hit-Girl Prequel
While Mark revealed that there’s no discussion for Kick-Ass 3 at this point, Vaughn spoke optimistically about the Hit-Girl prequel. He cited that it would be wonderful enough if they returned with a Hit-Girl prequel. After the failure of the second film of Kick-Ass, Vaughn believed that it would be great if they returned with the prequel, which might open the door for Kick-Ass 3. So if that happens, then he can persuade Chloe and Aaron to return and finish the Kick-Ass storyline. In 2015, Vaughn also revealed that he was working on a prequel of how Big Daddy and Hit-Girl became superheroes. After then, he has plans to make Kick-Ass 3.
Kick-Ass 3: Production Details
While Mark mentioned that there were no plans for Kick-Ass 3, Vaughn announced that the third film was in development in 2019. He said the movie would be developed under Marv Studios. The third film is intended to be the final movie. But Vaughn is also planning to return with a reboot series. In 2021, he revealed that the reboot is in the works and will be out soon. But he didn’t mention Kick-Ass 3’s production details. So it remains unclear whether they are working on the third film.
Kick-Ass 3: Cast Details
During an interview, it was announced that Aaron Taylor Johnson, Lyndsy Fonseca, and Christopher Mintz-Plasse are set to reprise their role. Aaron will return as Dave Lizewski/Kick-Ass, Lyndsy as Katie Deauxma, and Mintz-Plasse as Chris D’Amico/The Motherfucker. However, Chloe Grace Moretz is still determining whether or not she wants to return as Mindy Macready/Hit Girl. In an interview, she expressed her doubt about her return. But she’s willing to return to see what’s aligned next for Hit-Girl, especially when she’s like an adult.
Kick-Ass 3: The Creator Talked About Plot Details
Mark revealed that the third movie would be the final one, so there’s a possibility that someone will die in the end. He said it’s a realistic superhero story, so if they don’t have bulletproof vests, the chances of their death are quite high. He also said that something drastic would happen in the end. Apart from this, the third movie will explore the dark side of Hit-Girl. People have seen Mindy but don’t know how she became Hit Girl. So the third movie will explore her dark side and how she lost her father, which ultimately led her to go crazy.
Kick-Ass 3: Release Date
The creator and the cast have yet to talk about the release date of Kick-Ass 3. However, Vaughn said that they are currently in the making of the reboot, which will air sometime in 2023.
