Comic-Con is almost upon us and information is starting to steep out about what is showing and who will be there. Yesterday we saw the first banner for Avatar, today it has been confirmed that footage from Matthew Vaughn‘s new film, Kick-Ass, will be shown towards the end of the day on Thursday, July 23. There is no word on whether or not the stars of the film will make an appearance.
Kick-Ass is a Mark Millar comic about a dorky high school student, named Dave Lizewski, who decides to become a superhero. The only problem is he has no defining ability or even coordination. A few problems arise when Dave encounters bad guys who can fight and have weapons. The film stars Nicholas Cage, Aaron Johnson, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, and Chloe Moretz. Aaron Johnson stars as Dave Lizewski and Lyndsy Fonseca plays his love interest. Nicholas Cage plays a former cop who has trained his daughter, Chole Moretz, to be a lethal weapon.
Check out a few pictures from the movie…
I like the idea of this movie; it sounds like it could be pretty good. I am not really familiar with the story or Mark Millar, but I am curious to hear what people think of Mark Millar and Matthew Vaughn directing this movie.
What do you think?
