Hit-Girl Gets Her Own Book And It Ties In To The Movie
We’ve heard a little bit about the next Kick-Ass movie, and now Mark Millar is talking about it a little more as he promotes the new solo Hit-Girl comic coming out in about 4 weeks. Millar took to twitter to tell fans that the Hit-Girl miniseries will serve as the first part of the Kick-Ass 2 movie. Millar spoke with ComicBookResources about the Hit-Girl book and what we can expect.
Millar stated that he had Hit-Girl just as a supporting character in the first series, but found he enjoyed writing for her a lot. He found the 5 issue solo series as a good place to really expand the character and have some fun. It’s the Hit-Girl we know and love from the first Kick-Ass, but it also fills in the gaps between Kick-Ass 1 and 2.
The mini series takes place between the two Kick-Ass volumes, and the supervillain story really picks up in Kick-Ass 2. So here we get the Red Mist where he was at the end of the first book or where people saw him at the end of the first movie. He’s dedicated himself to doing this and trying to go out to start the world’s first super crime. He’s already been active in Kick-Ass 2 so here you see him putting on that mask and going out for the first time. It’s almost like what Kick-Ass did – he’s trying to go viral.
In the final pages of Kick-Ass and the start of Kick-Ass 2 we see Mindy (Hit-Girl) in school and completely out of her element. Millar touched on having Mindy adjusting to her new life.
[T]o put her in a school environment is really great, because all those things you’d think would make her tough actually make her really vulnerable. And she’s not allowed to shoot anyone, so she can’t really mix with normal kids. Put her in a school, and she’s automatically the class freak. She’s totally cool as Hit-Girl, but then when she walks into school, she doesn’t know the new band that all the kids are into. She’s never watched Glee. She doesn’t give a s**t about Glee.
Millar has tweeted and took to his website’s Millar World Forum to tell how this miniseries will be the opening parts of the Kick-Ass 2 movie with the entire Kick-Ass 2 comics serving as the second and third act. Below is the first look at the new variant cover courtesy of CBR. As you can see, it is clearly a Game of Thrones homage.
