The R-rated Superhero craze missed Kick-Ass by a couple of years. That film pushed the boundaries of what filmmakers could depict in a superhero flim, and Matthew Vaughn gave us one of the better adaptations. The franchise got a second installment Kick-Ass 2 in 2013. Now according to a new interview with ComicBook for The King’s Man, we might have an answer on Kick-Ass‘s future.

Oh, you’ve got a big reboot, a big reboot of Kick-Ass in two years. Big reboot … It’s so f*cking nuts that I can’t talk about it. But we’ve got that ready to go. All the rights revert back in two years and then we’re going to reboot it where people will be like, ‘He is insane,'” Vaughn revealed. “Not gonna say,” he replied when asked if it would be a new cast. 


He went on further about doing a reboot over a sequel.

Because I think the clue is in the title. I think Kick-Ass … it became a new type of genre. Everyone went like- whenever we made it, everyone was like, ‘Oh, you can’t make R-rated superheroes. No one will want to see an R-rated superhero. You can’t do this. You can’t do that.’  So, [LAUGH] when we- I had to say ‘dare’ and it was so nuts that I went, ‘Yeah, great. It’ll cause just as much controversy and everyone will talk about it and as many people will love it will hate it.’ Um, but I’m not saying it hasn’t got the characters in it and won’t have, you know. I’m just saying it’s not what any of-anyone could be imagining what it is. And I’m going to need one very, very brave actor or actress to play the new Kick-Ass because it will scare the shit out of them.

Kick-Ass In The Future

Kick-Ass is looking like it’s ready for a new generation, so we’ll have to see what Vaughn and Co. have in store for the franchise. They’re not shutting out the possibility of a new generation mixed with the old, however. So we’ll have to see if Chloe Grace Moretz and Aaron Taylor-Johnson return for the upcoming films.
