We get to the kicking in the world of HEROES OF PAPER. This week, we marked 10 years of the premiere of Kick-Ass (Kick-Ass: A Superhero without Superpowers, 2010), based on the comic written by Mark Millar and illustrated by John Romita Jr., published by Icon Comics.
Nicolas Cage played Damon MacCready, an ex-cop who took the identity of Big Daddy, a vigilante inspired visually by the Batman who trained his daughter Mindy (Chloë Grace Moretz) as the fighter against the crime Hit-Girl.
There were problems for which the studies were interested due to the violence. The co-producer, co-screenwriter and director Matthew Vaughn (Kingsman: The Secret Service, Kingsman: The Golden Circle) wanted originally to Brad Pitt as a Big Daddy, but the actor agreed to Inglourious Basterds (Bastards Without Glory, 2009) by Quentin Tarantino.
According to The Hollywood Reporter (THR, https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/heat-vision/why-kick-ass-was-movie-no-studio-would-touch-1290480), Vaughn said: “I Knew that Nic loved comics and superheroes, and this script was a love letter to superheroes. The film imagines how it would be if the fanboy final suddenly decides to play a superhero, and some people mistakenly felt that we were attacking the gender, but I knew that Nic would buy”.
Raised $96,188,903 dollars worldwide (https://www.boxofficemojo.com/title/tt1250777/?ref_=bo_se_r_1). The sequel Kick-Ass 2 (2013), written and directed by Jeff Wadlow, which included Jim Carrey in the cast, received $60,795,985 dollars (https://www.boxofficemojo.com/title/tt1650554/?ref_=bo_se_r_2). Pitt was one of the producers of both films.
