Matthew Vaughn Teases Hit Girl Prequel, Possible ‘Kick-Ass 3,’ If You’re Into That

by Britt Hayes June 18, 2015 @ 6:29 PM
First of all, let’s not take this news too seriously — Matthew Vaughn has been known to set his sights on projects only to abandon them when he loses interest, and he’s also never directed a sequel to one of his own films before.

(See: ‘Man of Steel’ [Or maybe don’t.]) There’s been some pushback, but we’re really only now coming out of the trend toward ultra-serious, uber-dark comic-book movies.

'Kick-Ass 2: Balls to the Wall' is currently in production in Toronto, Canada, and a new video taken on set has revealed a first look at Jim Carrey in action -- sorta -- as his "Colonel Stars" character.
The video itself doesn't provide a ton of excitement, unless actors in superhero costumes standing around and waiting for "action to be called" can be considered exciting, but it still provides us with a good look at Carrey in character in the highly-anticipated sequel.
