Kick-Ass Poster

More posters for Kick-Ass? Yep, we're going to get one of these for every damn character in the movie. I think Hit Girl is up next after this one! UGO has debuted a new character poster for Kick-Ass featuring Big Daddy on it. Big Daddy is another costumed hero played by Nicolas Cage in the movie (he's look kind of like Batman, right?). His daughter is Hit Girl, played by Chloe Moretz, and they form a ragtag vigilante team that is actually very efficient and quite brutal, unlike Kick-Ass. In related news, UGO also has a clip featuring Big Daddy. The film also just screened recently and Peter from SlashFilm said "Kick-Ass kicked everyone's ass."

Big Daddy - Kick-Ass Poster

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. Who's already planning to see this?

I hate you Nic Cage.

CHE on Dec 14, 2009


Although I like Cage, i found number 1s comment pretty funny.

Al on Dec 14, 2009


Damn!!!! Did I missed something... or are we returning to Tim Burton's Batman?

Godius333 on Dec 14, 2009


I never thought I would get to see a picture with nic cage in a batman suite, on top of a skyscraper, pointing at me, now i can die. ^I dont like nic cage either

Scott McHenry on Dec 14, 2009


that is the ultimate batman rip off - but maybe that's the point, to be so blatant

Antioch on Dec 14, 2009


if you don't like nic cage then leave CHE Scott McHenry HI!!!! joking, I like the Batman ripoff, kind of the point.

Xerxex on Dec 14, 2009


perhaps the costume will control the flighty hand movements of Mr Cage. This movie should be great! like the costumes so far.

Lota on Dec 14, 2009


The only issue I have so far is that this costume is nothing like it was in the comic book. All the others are simply amazing

Movieraider321 on Dec 14, 2009


i've said it before, but it bears repeating: i want a hitgirl poster!!!!

beavis on Dec 14, 2009

Nic Cage needs to dip his head in lava!!

DoomCanoe on Dec 14, 2009


I think i agree with most of you that the point is for the costume to look like batman's, maybe to mock the superhero genre, because that costume looks so mch like batman, if you threw a bat symbol on it it could probably pass as batman.

JP on Dec 14, 2009


Well... it's official: Mark Millar cannot adapt his comics for film. First he signs off on a version of Wanted that has next to nothing to do with the actual book, and now his take on real-world crimefighters includes Nic Cage in an obviously fabricated costume. If he's willing to change something as significant as the character's look, what other corners did they cut in the movie?

Pete the Geek on Dec 14, 2009


This "film" looks horrible from top to bottom.

K on Dec 14, 2009


I thought the movie sounded awesome until I found out this fucker was in it. God damn you world.

Matt on Dec 14, 2009


Uh, you guys don't get it, at all. This is supposed to look like Batman because it's a mockery of the current world of superheroes. Mark Millar's comic is about a kid who lives in THIS real world and reads the same comics we do (and sees the same movies). He then decides to become a superhero on his own. His costume, and everyone else's in the movie, is a representation of a "what if someone in this real world decided to dress up and become a vigilante." Don't you think if some deranged guy with weapons decided to dress up as a costumed hero he might just make a costume that looks like the Batman costume? It makes complete sense. This film isn't a superhero movie in its own world. It's a superhero movie set in this real world addressing the ideas of what it would be like if comic book culture influenced some people a little too much. It's supposed to look like a Batman rip-off for that exact reason!

Alex Billington on Dec 14, 2009


haven't we seen like 12 posters with his face on this week? the overexposure won't do any good to his already lowly-valued name

twispious on Dec 14, 2009


I don't shee how you cherish the memory of the dead by killing another million. It'sh an act of lunashy, General Shir. Pershonally, I favour the quische.

John Patrick Mayshon on Dec 15, 2009


Uh, we get it, entirely. Its Nic Cage and it all looks like shit, regardless of any "point" the poster may be trying to make.

Voice of Reason on Dec 15, 2009


ummm...we get it. Looks like the suit can act better than Cage any bloody day!

Clover on Dec 15, 2009


I think #16 is correct, you guys just need to chill and give it a shot. Did anyone see that video clip???? OMG i want to see that movie now! If that one clip is any indication of how dark and twistedly f'ked up someone can be...then I'm for it!!!! Oh and no sh!t, it's suppose to be a rip off of Batman damn get of yourself you f'king comic nerd and live alittle!!!! No one seemed to talk much crap about QT when he made all those Bruce Lee and etc. references in Kill Bill? So what's the difference? April can't get here soon enough.

JJ81 on Dec 15, 2009


I am still hyped about this movie.

Fisherr on Dec 15, 2009

Spider94 on Dec 15, 2009

sea ton on Dec 16, 2009


I hate you Nic Cage

name on Dec 18, 2009


Personally I hate that LIONSGATE would pluck a rival studio's ten year old Adam Sandler title [COUMBIA with BIG DADDY, the film that won Sandler to the longtime freindship with Columbia/Sony. However it does ;look fun andf different than the Sandler film, and now that I know who's playing in it [Nicholas Cage], and read above about what's it about, I am kind of looking forward to this..

SJC_1960 on Jan 12, 2010


I just NOW ticed that Big Daddy I guess, ain't the actual title but "KICK ASS".
