KICK-ASS Comic Con 2009 Panel
So far the Comic Con 2009 KICK-ASS panel was my favorite one along with James Cameron’s Avatar.
I had been looking forward to this panel based solely on some of the pictures I had seen from it and the story of the comic book (which I now want to read).
Kick-Ass tells the story of a guy, Dave Lizewski, who decides one day that he is going to become a superhero, but the problem is, he doesn’t have any superpowers.
Appearing in the panel was the director Matthew Vaughn, writers Mark Millar & Jane Goldman, John Romita Jr. and cast members Christopher Mintz-Plasse (McLovin), Clark Duke and Chloe Moretz.
During the panel, we got a chance to take a look at a few clips and trailers, which totally kicked ass!
Probably the most memorable one was the one where, Damon Macready (Nicolas Cage) shoots his daughter (who is wearing a protective vest) to teach her not to be afraid of guns and being shot. That was probably one of the funniest scenes that I have seen in a while, and Nicolas Cage is brilliant in it.
Another great character is Mindy Macready aka Hit Girl (Nicolas Cage’s daughter) played by Chloe Moretz, who probably has some of the best action scenes in the movie.
The best part of the panel was the standing ovation after the footage had been revealed, which is quite the compliment since that pretty much never happens.
Kick-Ass looks funny and has some pretty crazy action sequences. I cannot contain my excitement for it and hope we will get to see it soon, although there is no release date for it yet.
For now, you can check out more pictures from the Kick-Ass Comic Con 2009 panel below.
