The future of the “Kick-Ass” remains hanging by a thread as there are no indications if there will still be a part three for the franchise.
But that doesn’t stop director Vince Vaughn on planning a possible continuation to the beloved comic series. He believes that a Hit-Girl prequel could help before proceeding with the final “Kick-Ass 3” movie release.
“We’re working on an idea for a prequel of how did Hit Girl and Big Daddy become Hit Girl and Big Daddy,” Vaughn said via Tech Times . “If we make that, hopefully that will be the sorbet for the people that didn’t like Kick-Ass 2 and then we can go off and make Kick-Ass 3.”
According to the director of the first film, a prequel would boost the chances of fans to fall in love once again to the franchise.
“I think we’ve got to do this prequel to regain the love that we had with Kick-Ass,” he added.
So what actually made “Kick-Ass 2” get lackluster numbers? Were the main stars like Aaron Taylor-Johnson or Chloe Grace-Moretz not that good the second time around? Is the film just too violent which makes it not watchable for everyone?
In a report by Movie Pilot , the biggest cause of “Kick-Ass 2” downfall is the lack of support Jim Carrey gave to the film.
Quoting the website: “It’s been said before that Carrey could have utilized his character, Colonel Stars and Stripes, who was anti-gun and a born again Christian to actually make a stand against violence.”
“Instead of finishing the job, taking his check, going home and saying he’s against violence and don’t go see Kick-Ass 2.”
Will “Kick-Ass 3” ever come to fruition? Stay tuned.
