Hollywood predators are about to meet a bloody reckoning from our favorite pint-sized punisher. Hit-Girl makes a lauded return to the comic book pages in the newest Millarworld comic penned by Kevin Smith, aptly titled Hit-Girl: The Golden Rage of Hollywood.
In the upcoming 2019 series, the Kick-Ass breakout character portrayed by Chloe Grace Moretz in the movie adaptations is pitted against the predators of Hollywood to dole out brutal justice. And in a post-Weinstein world, it couldn’t come at a better time.

Earlier this month, we wrote about how director Matthew Vaughn announced plans to get behind the camera for a reboot of Kick-Ass, his 2010 movie that was based on writer Mark Millar’s comic book. One of that film’s most memorable characters is Hit-Girl, a trained assassin played by the then-13-year-old Chloe Grace Moretz. Moretz reprised the role in 2013’s Kick-Ass 2, but now the actress says she won’t be coming back to play that part in an eventual Kick-Ass 3 – and it sounds like Kick-Ass 2 could be to blame for that.

Thirty-five million dollars. That’s all that separates the worldwide grosses of the first Kick-Ass, and its sequel, Kick-Ass 2. That doesn’t sound like a lot, but when neither gross is over $100 million, and each cost about $30 million to make, it’s a big percentage. Because of that, plans to continue the franchise either with a Kick-Ass 3 or Hit Girl spin-off have pretty much stalled. Fans still talk about the ideas, though, and so do the filmmakers.
Case in point: Kick-Ass director and sequel producer Matthew Vaughn. In a new interview, he suggests he’d like to do a Kick-Ass prequel, centering on Hit Girl and Big Daddy, as a palate cleanser leading to Kick-Ass 3. Sounds awesome right? Well series co-creator Mark Millar is less optimistic about those movies actually happening. Check out the Vaughn and Miller Kick-Ass prequel and sequel quotes below. Read More »
The most attention-getting character in the two Kick-Ass movies was definitely Hit-Girl, the foul-mouthed, utterly badass young fighter played by Chloe Moretz. We’ve probably seen the last of the Kick-Ass stories on the big screen, due to the middling performance of the second film and the fact that the series’ actors are quickly growing out of their roles. But if things had gone differently we might have seen a Hit-Girl solo movie — and there was even an effort to get The Raid director Gareth Evans on board. Read More »
