Kick-Ass New Character Posters for Matthew Vaughn's Kick-Ass!

November 5, 2009

Freakin' sweet! IGN has debuted the first four character posters for Matthew Vaughn's Kick-Ass tonight. By now everyone has probably heard about this (or seen the leaked Comic-Con footage), so I don't think it needs an elaborate introduction. Kick-Ass is the adaptation of Mark Millar's awesome comic series about a kid who decides to dress up and be a superhero. While it could've been a goofy, Hollywood spoof, Vaughn went all out to make sure it was a bloody, brutal, violent adaptation true to his own pure vision. And that's already starting to show even in the marketing, as these posters definitely look awesome. Check ’em out!

Kick-Ass is both written and directed by British filmmaker Matthew Vaughn, of Layer Cake and Stardust previously. The screenplay was co-written by Vaughn and his writing partner Jane Goldman, of Stardust as well. The story is an adaptation of Mark Millar's comic of the same name that is currently in the middle of its first series. Kick-Ass was funded entirely by Matthew Vaughn and his own private investors and sold once finished to Lionsgate earlier this year. They've currently set an April 16th, 2010 release date for the film, although I hope they change that, because that's a terrible opening day. Hopefully we'll see a trailer soon!

    Very nice! Actually looking forward to this one. Layer Cake was great. I was bored to tears with Stardust. But, Matthew Vaughn has obvious talent. Should be interesting to watch this come to fruition.

  • captain subtext
    no idea what this is about. still kinda looking forward to it.
  • Esben
    Is it me or does Big Daddy look a bit like Magneto?
  • branden
    I am not hating, but I don't understand how people can think this poster is so awesome and say that others suck. Seriously, the Toy Story 3 posters are better than these. Stardust sucked and Vaughn hasn't really done anything else, so be weary.

    @13 & 14 & 16 Flame wars are the lamest shit ever to hit interweb culture. Seriously, stfu/fail/lolerskates/pwned.. Dont mind me, I just seek attention... Posters look amazing. I will agree that the Toy Story 3 posters are strong as well but these are straight to the point, but don't give us too much data. We still don't know what each character looks like. :goes back to my hole in the ground:
  • @ 5...Could you elaborate why the script was shit? Your comment worries me because I've been looking forward to this and I usually don't read scripts so if the story is terrible then there's not much to look forward to.
  • smacky
    I hope it's good.
  • Aaron
    I'm freaking excited for this! It was a good choice on their part to have the character names on the poster rather than actor names. It kinda shows that this will be more about the film/comic than the actors in it...
  • Fisherr
    Kick ass poster indeed.
  • Rachel
    impressive touch to use the character names on teh poster instead of the suprised they allowed it!
  • That Awesome Norwegian Guy
    Aren't all the actors wrong?
  • Daniel
    @22 Thank you God! Posters look awesome. Movie should be awesome. Not totally psyched, but seems watchable. Still waiting for trailer for final analysis.
