Comic-Con: ‘Kick-Ass’ Expected To Hit Theaters In Early 2010, Says Director

Earlier today I posted a breakdown of the footage from the “Kick-Ass” panel and the first look it provided at the father-daughter vigilantes played by Nicolas Cage and Chloe Moretz. While the footage certainly looked great, there’s still some question about when we’ll actually be able to see “Kick-Ass” in theaters.

Director Matthew Vaughn had some interesting news on that aspect of the project, too.

During the Q&A portion of the panel that followed the video, the director said he expects “Kick-Ass” to hit theaters in the 1st quarter of 2010. According to Vaughn, the film is 90-percent completed, with the music providing the only lingering issue.

“Everything that we put in it makes it dated right away,” explained Vaughn.

When “Kick-Ass” does finally make it to theaters, however, comic book writer Mark Millar teased that we could be seeing more of its cast down the road.

“I always had the idea of it being a trilogy,” said Millar.
