Movieweb interviewed Mark Millar about the comic and film adaptation (they’ll be pretty much the same) of Kick Ass 2: Balls To The Wall, and he was willing to spill some wonderfully massive spoilery info about the project.
Basically, it begins with Hit girl having retired from killing and being raised by her dad’s former police partner. Red Mist returns and rallies a bunch of new super-villains to kill Kick Ass and sends a Russian assassin to kill Hit Girl. And it all culminates in a giant gang-fight in Times Square. On how Red Mist has changed since the last flick, Millar said:
This is a guy who has had his entire family killed by Hit Girl. He heads off and develops his martial arts skills. He learns how to become a better villain. That type of thing. He is going to come back and wreck unholy vengeance on our team. But in reality, he just comes back and gets stoned, and he spends a lot of money. He can’t do anything, so he hires this bad ass girl from Russia, she comes into the story, and her plan is to kill Hit Girl. Red Mist becomes like Charles Manson. He goes on-line and influences a bunch of young villains to go against Kick-Ass and Hit Girl. The whole thing ends up as a big gang fight like you’d see in The Warriors. There is going to be a big gang fight in the middle of Times Square between all of these costumed heroes. And at the head will be the Red Mist and Hit Girl.
