Hit-Girl Makes Her Debut on One Final Kick-Ass Teaser Poster
When it was first announced more than a year ago that the adorable 12-year-old Chloe Moretz would be starring in Matthew Vaughn's Kick-Ass adaptation as Hit-Girl, I don't think anyone expected her to be this badass. But if you've seen the Comic-Con footage or the first trailer, you already know she's going to be the past damn part of this movie. IGN has debuted the final character poster for Kick-Ass featuring Hit-Girl and another fun catchphrase. I'm so frickin' excited to see this movie right now, I wish we didn't have to wait another four months, but I'm sure it'll be here before we know it. And oh yes, she does use those swords!
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?

A little sloppy on the graffiti marks, but otherwise looks pretty sick.

sweet hit-girl poster! there's just something about a 12-year-old girl (with a purple wig and double- bladed staff) who likes to deal out violence that, well.......KICKS ASS!......(hence, the name of the movie, i guess) my girlfriend loves hit-girl too......she says it's about time a female deals out the aggression.....even if she is 12! we'll be seeing this as soon as it comes out and will be buying it the day it's available. i hate to sound fanboyish, but hit-girl rules!

So when they decided to make this movie was their technique for gathering information , "flipping through the comic" ? Big daddy looks NOTHING like the actual character, Red Mist has been reduced to Mclovin in a very strange costume and hit girl apparently now has some weird phantom menace thing going on? The comic is written in such a way that a movie adaptation could be done by a monkey without screwing it up; but instead they send in producers and execs who are lower on the evolutionary ladder. They managed to take a series that is ideal for the big screen and, from what i can tell, turn it into just another superhero movie where the characters are butchered into oblivion. Its not as if I'm some huge fan who's followed this comic for years, either, because it only has 7 issues. I read through them pretty quickly and probably missed a lot of detail but I DO have eyeballs and even i can tell that this is another hollywood, "lets ruin something awesome" -athon. This is what i get for READING. In the future i'll just wait for the movie to come out first, who needs original creative works? Lets see how the ultra-creative and talented hollywood execs interpret it!

#5, come on! this movie looks like it'll be a fun watch. i'm an avid reader myself; although i moved on from comics to novels many years ago. while i'm not familiar with this particular comic, i don't think (from the trailer) this movie looks like it's suffering from a poor interpretation (of the comic). and i don't think it's just "another super-hero movie" from what i gather, these are just ordinary people who decide they want to be superheros......except they're going to use lots of violence to make up for the fact that they have no special abilities or "super-powers". that may not be entirely accurate but it's close. by the way........it's a comic book!...... i think you're getting worked up over nothing.

I'd tap her.

Yeah #5 smoke some weed or something its not that big of a deal. Hollywood destroys original material constantly with there trash but I mean come on your telling me this doesnt look at all amazingly badass? If your answer is no then your opinion means nothing anyway.

The actually Hit Girl text is rubbish, the rest looks bonus, do the Studios rush these things out are are the graphic designers retarded?
Crapola on Dec 18, 2009
wow??? we are so quick to judge arent we 😀 maybe the the marks were done deliberately to give the impression that the"evil-doer" whos written it on the wall of a high building is not a grafic designer but only a teen thats in a home made costume trying to K?ck-Some serious butt!!! maybe hit girl herself done the writing and applied too much spray at one point to have that leaking/bleeding effect 😀 come on guys... it doesnt look that bad in overall. we dont have to be that picky all the time there are tons more BullS. fed to us in more serious moives 😀 after all this is a movie about real life teenagers trying to play cowboys and indians in real life with home made costumes (with what they can buy or have got made with paid money) and rubber band rolled 2''water pipes as weapons as they are heavily influenced by comic book superheroes. you cant expect to have them all that gimmicks and cool costumes in other superhero movies and maybe the costumes were altered to make them look a bit cooler than they were portrayed in the comics... (we gotta admit those plain costumes done by JRomita JR in the comics can no way be brought to life by any tailor or costume designer for any movie no matter how plain and simple it looks on paper, the guy is a god, whatever he draws looks awesome on paper and definetely will loose its impact handled by a movie costumer :D) maybe they needed to make them more striking in real life to match the drawn costumes effect in the comics etc etc i myself am looking forward for this movie 😀 having loved Unbreakable one of the best superhero movies out there i beliece this one also will have its special place with millions... its a good two hours time i am looking for afterall 😀 so bring it on 😀 lets see some ass get kicked 😀 cheers

I can't wait for her infamous line, "Which one of you cunts is next?" Expect angry parents and politicians protesting outside your nearest cinema.

Don't complain when younger kids start swearing gratuitously at their parents (which some already do) and long for the day when they can kill their parents in their sleep. Mass murder with impunity is in! Sorry but this is one fucked up premise for a movie, the kids are the ones that will soak it up not the adults. What role models. Grahem should have his penis and balls chopped off. Useless twit.

I hope Chris Hanson doesn't read this but yeah.. she's one hot lil' Minkie!

Hit girl was awesome in the movie even though she wasn't even the main character...although this movie is not suitable for children and i wonder how the parents of this young girl let her cuss so much in this movie.
