Sneak Peek: Kick Ass

Published on January 14th, 2009

One of my favorite new comics of 2008 was Mark Millar’s and John Romita Jr.’s Kick-Ass. For some time we have been hearing about this upcoming film starring Nicolas Cage, Christopher Mintz-Plasse and Chloe Moretz.

Kick-Ass is the story of Dave Lizewski, a dorky kid in high school (like I was) who takes his interest in comic books as inspiration to become a real-life superhero.

I find it kind of funny that there is a film coming out this year since they’re only on issue five, which just came out a few weeks back. Let’s just hope they don’t fuck up this film like they did with the other Millar comic book-based film, Wanted.
