‘Kick-Ass’ Star Aaron Johnson Says Sequel ‘Would Be Great,’ Confesses To Being Comics Newbie

Over the last few months, we’ve heard from “Kick-Ass” cast mates Chloe Moretz, Nicolas Cage, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Clark Duke and Mark Strong, but one person who we’ve heard very little from is Kick-Ass himself, Aaron Johnson.

In the film, Johnson plays high-schooler Dave Lizewski, a teenage comics fan who decides to try his hand at being a costumed vigilante, only to face some harsh realities about fighting crime. MTV News caught up with Johnson at the Sundance Film Festival to ask him about the film — specifically, whether he’s spoken to director Matthew Vaughn or “Kick-Ass” comic co-creator Mark Millar about their plans for a sequel.

“We’ll see, we’ll see,” said Johnson. “It would be great to do a sequel.”

“Matthew’s got a bunch of ideas. … It would be very interesting, yeah,” he added.

Johnson admitted that his comics savvy paled in comparison to co-star Clark Duke (who we previously spoke to about his comic-collecting habits), but he was fortunate to be surrounded by willing teachers.

“It was all quite a new experience for me,” he said. “The part I play is a huge comic book fan, so I got a lot of influences on set. Also, working with Clark Duke, who plays my friend in it, he’s a huge comic book fan.”

“Unfortunately, I missed out on Comic-Con and things like that,” he added.

Of course, if “Kick-Ass” is received as well by audiences as it has been by the select few who’ve seen it thus far, Johnson just might get his chance to see Comic-Con… when “Kick-Ass 2” comes around.
