The first Kick-Ass movie is still considered one of the best comic book adaptations of all time by many fans, but a mediocre sequel seemed to take the wind out of the aspiring franchise's sails, and it's been years since we had any updates on a potential threequel.
Back in 2018, director Matthew Vaughn was in the process of setting up a new studio, and was planning a new Kick-Ass movie as well as a solo Hit-Girl outing that would either focus on an older Mindy Macready, or flashback to her younger years growing up under the tutelage of Big Daddy. Actress Chloë Grace Moretz didn't seem too optimistic at the time, but it sounds like she may have warmed-up to the idea.
"I think it would be really fun to see where Hit-Girl goes and what she is like as an adult," Moretz told Jimmy Fallon during an appearance on The Tonight Show. "But I think it would have to be kind of perfect." Moretz went on to clarify that castmates Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Christopher Mintz-Plasse and "the whole crew, across the board" would also have to be willing to return before she'd consider signing on.
The Kick-Ass comics remain very popular, but creator Mark Millar recently stated that there are no current plans for a third movie. That could change, of course, especially now that Moretz has expressed interest.
