On Friday, March 12, "Kick-Ass" was premiered at 2010 SXSW and following the screening, the movie's star Chloe Moretz had an interview with MTV to talk about the possible sequel. Though she claimed she does not know anything about "Kick-Ass 2", the depicter of Hit Girl admitted that she would love to reprise her role and has already made a deal with screenwriter Jane Goldman about her character.
"I know nothing, but all I know is that I want a purple Ducati. I'm serious," Moretz revealed. She further explained, "Jane and I talked about it, and...she promised me. She promised me that I will get a purple Ducati...with like a little Gatling gun and then like a little Droid that pops out with all the knives and stuff knives and stuff -- and like a neon under-thing [light]."
The 13-year-old actress won't quite be of age to legally ride vehicle but she pointed out that she will "be a teenager" if the film is shot in the next few years. Additionally, Hit Girl may be seen fighting Red Mist in the sequel as her co-star Christopher Mintz-Plasse told MTV about his idea for the relationship between his character and Hit Girl, "And this guy's going to kick some ass in the sequel, hopefully. It'll probably be me versus her for a little bit."
In another interview, Plasse, joined by lead actor Aaron Johnson, affirmed that there is plan to make a follow-up to "Kick-Ass". "Last night at the Q 'n' A, someone asked Johnny [Romita Jr. - one of 'Kick-Ass' creators] if they're going to have some stuff from 'Kick-Ass 2' at Comic-Con and they said, 'Yes,' which means they're going to get started on it, which is exciting," he told SuperHeroHype. His cast mate then added, "Matthew [Vaughn - director] and Mark [Millar - another 'Kick-Ass' creator] have a lot of ideas, and I think they work quite tightly."
Dishing on what direction the second film will be taken into, Plasse shared, "I met up with Mark actually a few months ago and we had a couple drinks and he told me it was going to be great, and he wants it to be very, very dark is what he's thinking." Supporting Plasse's statement, Johnson said to SuperHeroHype, "If you could get any more dark than 'Kick-Ass' is right now, then Mark had even darker ideas. Matthew went with absolutely everything but there were some things that were impossible to film. No one's going to see it because it's too disgusting."
"Kick-Ass" will not open wide in U.S. theaters until April 16. The film follows the story of average teenager Dave Lizewski who decides to take his comic-book obsession as inspiration to become a real-life superhero. Assembling green-colored suit and mask to wear, he opts to be called Kick-Ass and gets to work fighting crime.
