Comic-Con '09: Kick Ass

I was particularly pleased to see that Kick Ass did indeed kick ass at Comic-Con the other day, drawing wild praise from all who witnessed Matthew Vaughn's hardcore adaptation of Mark Millar and John Romita Jr's hardcore superhero comic. The film, which stars Aaron Johnson as Kick Ass, Nicolas Cage as Big Daddy, Christopher Mintz-Plasse as Red Mist and Chloe Moretz as Hit Girl (pictured) promises to reset the bar on not only what's possible in comic book movies but what's acceptable.

Elsewhere Titan Books unveiled the Kick Ass: Movie Book which features "creator Mark Millar's unique commentary on the conversion of his bestselling comic to the big screen, with hundred of photos" and interviews by yours truly.
