The comic book movie craze may have exploded in recent years, but there have been movies and TV shows based on our favorite comics for decades. For all the action we see on screen, however, we hardly...

The biggest brand in comic-book movies right now is clearly Marvel. And the second-biggest is probably DC. But the third-biggest might be Mark Millar, a writer who’s spent time at both Marvel and DC, wrote the ‘Civil War’ storyline that’s going to be the basis for the next ‘Captain America’ movie, and co-created ‘The Ultimates’ comic that served as a heavy inspiration for many elements of Marvel’s movies (including the Chitauri aliens from ‘The Avengers’ and the depiction of Nick Fury as a Samuel L. Jackson look-alike). Most of Millar’s creator-owned comics have been or are in the process of being turned into films. First there was ‘Wanted’ in 2008, then the two ‘Kick-Ass’ movies in 2010 and 2013. Next is ‘Kingsman: The Secret Service,’ which opens in theaters next month, and Millar’s got several more projects (like ‘Nemesis,’ ‘Superior’) in the pipeline behind it.

The fans have spoken! The polls for ScreenCrush’s 2nd Annual Fan Choice Awards are officially closed, and when it comes to the Best Superhero Movie of 2013 ... it's not 'Man of Steel' or 'Iron Man 3,' surprisingly. No, movie fans instead voted 'Kick-Ass 2' ahead of DC and Marvel's live-action outings.

There's something thematically appropriate about a movie telling the story of a butler who quietly influenced the United States taking the number one spot at the box office over its flashy, bigger rivals. Lee Daniels' 'The Butler' took multiplexes by storm this weekend, taking down last week's competition as well as a handful of seemingly strong newcomers.

Reel Women: Sorry Hit-Girl, 'Kick-Ass 2' is Misogynist Garbage

The first 'Kick-Ass' film was praised for its depiction of miniature crime-fighter Hit-Girl (Chloe Moretz), whose origin story satirized traditional comic book origin stories: her father (Nicolas Cage) is a delusional vigilante and has stolen her childhood, training her to be a tiny killing machine. Audiences relished in the gleeful, hyperactive sequences in which the foul-mouthed Hit-Girl completely wiped out rooms full of weapon-toting adult men, and for good reason.
Unfortunately, Hit-Girl has lost her magic appeal in 'Kick-Ass 2,' but the even bigger disappointment is the film's horrible issues with gender.

'Kick-Ass 2' Review

Reverence for comic creator Mark Millar runs through the veins of 'Kick-Ass 2.' The affection is often on the nose: One minute, crime fighting high schooler Dave Lizewski (Aaron Johnson) is seen in front of a poster for Millar's 'American Jesus.' In a later flashback, his Dad hangs a piece of 'Superior' art on Dave's wall. The tips of a the hat are a blockade for writer/director Jeff Wadlow, whose passion for Millar's source material disables him from streamlining 'Kick-Ass 2' into a functional action movie.
There are too many moving parts, from Kick-Ass' attempts to form a DIY Justice League, to vengeful mob son Chris D'Amico's (Christopher Mintz-Plasse) emergence into New York's first supervillain, to the awkward high school story of Hit-Girl (Chloe Moretz). Balancing the schizophrenic story is a chore for Wadlow and the audience, and yet 'Kick-Ass 2' still manages to deliver a smattering of fun, living up to the tonal roller coaster ride of the original.
