KICK-ASS 2

According to a Kapow 2012 report over at Comic Book Movie, "Kick-Ass 2" writer/director Jeff Wadlow spoke about his approach to helming the film based on Mark Millar's comic of the same name.

"It's been an interesting process because for those of you who know the property really well, the movie takes some significant liberties with the first comic book," Wadlow said. "So then Mark did the sequel to the comic book which is Kick-Ass 2. So I had sort of this movie and the comic book and I had to find the intersection. An adaptation was quite a challenge, but one that I really enjoyed and loved. I think the most important thing that's gonna change from the Kick-Ass 2 comic to Kick-Ass 2 the movie was just really finding an emotional story to tell. Because what I certainly loved about the first film, and what I think elevated it above most comic book adaptations, is the heart and the emotion in the film. It was sort of my challenge as the film maker and storyteller to find something as emotional in the second film and I think we have some stuff that people are gonna really respond to."
