Comic creators speak up about Kick-Ass 3 and against Jim Carrey

Aug. 11, 2014by: Sean Wist

There's a thin line between dark humor and poor taste when it comes to the KICK-ASS films, and I think the direction of Matthew Vaughn allowed the first to fall into one category and the lack thereof left the sequel far into the second. KICK-ASS 2 didn't garner the ratings or money of the first but it was still somewhat profitable. The creators of the comic, Mark Millar and John Romita Jr., recently spoke up about the possibility of a third, as well as co-star Jim Carrey who was vary vocal about denouncing the film before its release.

Mark Millar had this to say:

The second one didn’t make as much. It cost a little less at around $24 million, made $61 million and made about $100 million again on DVD and TV rights. It was still profitable. It was by no means THE LONE RANGER. But does that mean we’ll make another one again? I don’t know. It’s definitely up in the air, and we’ll just have to see. Matthew [Vaughn] is a guy who I trust to make that decision. If he decides he does want to do it, I know he’ll get it done well. And he’s got the movie rights, so it’s ultimately his decision. I speak to Matthew every day, and we haven’t discussed KICK-ASS 3 so who knows? The option is always open.

John Romita Jr. said this about Jim Carrey:

As for Jim Carrey, I know I’ll never work with that bonehead again, so let me say this; I think Mark and I have talked about this before, but here’s a guy who could have capitalized on the character he played and played it toward his anti-gun stance. The character he played gave up weapons – gave up guns — and became a good guy. Anybody with three quarters of an education could have figured out how to fold that idea in with their anti-gun ideas. He’s not a smart enough guy to do that. He cashed his check and took his money, and then he went and pulled a bunch of crap on our film. He took money out of their pockets, and he should be ashamed of himself.

As much as I don't like KICK-ASS 2, John Romita Jr. does provide a good point. I'm sure actors have done plenty of movies that they're not particularly proud of in the span of their discography, but it does strike me as unprofessional to publicly slam a movie and possibly hurt it's box-office draw before it's been released. Regardless, KICK-ASS 2 felt like a made-for-TV film, so if I never hear about a KICK-ASS 3 in the works . . . I'd be okay with that.

Nailed it.

Meh

The second one was crap, and I cringed at the love angle towards the end. If they make a third they really need to get back to the formula of the first one, and I don't think you can accomplish that because Hit Girl is Hit Woman now so you loose that shock value. Just watch the first one and forget the second.

The first one had a great concept, and I enjoyed the first few issues that a friend lent me, but the film throws it all out the window in the third act (and hell, the comic probably does too, I never got far enough to find out). In any case, they have no right blaming Jim Carrey for their own shitty looking sequel to a disappointing film. I never bothered watching it, not because Carrey told me not to - good lord no! - but because it looked like it sucked.

Honestly

Kick-Ass 2 was an Ok film. I'd say 6/10. I felt the film spent too much time on Hit Girl. I know the Chloe grace-moretz was getting popular at the time but i felt the excessive focus on her detracted from the film at times. She's not a bad actress, mind you. I'm open to a third one though. My only wish is they get Vaughn back as director.

I respect Jim Carrey. I remember when Jim Carrey was on Letterman and Letterman asked him about his new movie "Me. Myself and Irene" and Letterman asked him "Is it good?" and Jim said "No" and Letterman said "But you are here to promote it?" and Jim said "Yes because I am obliged to" so, again, with Kick Ass 2 he found himself having made a movie he didn't like and when people asked him what he thought about the movie he answered honestly and told people that he thought it was too violent.

He didn't tell people to boycott the movie but he was didn't lie and say he could get behind it either. JRJr is a first class douche.

Neither black nor white

If you've ever tried to shoot a movie or be an actor you'll probably know how different a scrip and its movie can be from each other. Not a single member of the original Star Wars crew thought It'd ever be a good film based on what everybody at the time thought was a goofy script... The oposite often happens too where great actors sign in to be part of what seems like a guaranteed masterpiece and turns out not quite like that at all (Liam Neeson in The Phantom Menace, Christian Bale in

The oposite often happens too where great actors sign in to be part of what seems like a guaranteed masterpiece and turns out not quite like that at all (Liam Neeson in The Phantom Menace, Christian Bale in Terminator: Salvation). Maybe Kick-Ass 2 turned out not be the film Carrey initially thought or hoped it would. Or like he said, after the disturbing events of the shooting he became more sensitive to violence and didn't want to support it anymore. My good friend with whom I watched hundreds of action and horror movies as teens cannot bare them anymore now that he's older and more sensitive to violence. As far as I'm concerned Carrey never trashed the film, he just didn't wan't to endorse it and support its marketing. I think it's perfectly sane to change your mind and be honest with yourself. Lots of respected actors have chosen not to back their movies after their release (Alec Guiness for Star Wars, Viggo Mortensen for LOTR, Brando for A Streetcar, etc...) Heck, even directors sometimes wish they could not be credited for their own movie (David Fincher for Alien 3, David Lynch for Dune, etc...)

Having seen Kick Ass, there's no way anyone could legitimately be surprised that the sequel was violent and offensive.

@Des1 why should Jim Carrey give back the money. I'm sure he paid a penalty for not doing the press tour both of which are most likely in the contract. But he still showed and did the work.

The film is pretty much the same as the kick ass 2 comic, tho the film is toned down some. So, there shouldn't have been many surprises. Especially after what was kick ass 1. Carrey's character is pretty much exactly the same in the book

And, I would imagine Neeson (who has taken more and more and more shitty roles) took Star Wars bc it was Star Wars. I don't know when she died, but I also know he tried to keep busy after his wife died. And Bale? I don't think he thought the 4th film in

I would imagine it allowed him to get a smaller film done.

from what I understand all Jim said was that he couldn't support that level of violence, and that he had a change of heart. At least he was honest about it. That is a RARE thing in Hollywood (to be honest). I only watched about half of the film, but it did seem to me to not be as good as the first. I would be up for a third if it was better than the second.

Its like saying the public are too dumb to watch movies without being heavily influenced by them. Id be more concerned by programs like the Kardashians and these shitty talent programs.

And again, like his career is full of integrity. I know it was all in fun, and really kick ass was too, but what about his role in anchorman 2? I know there's a bit of a difference, but there's over the top violence

He's not *that* bad - I personally love more angular styles like that, and loath the old-school comicbook strongman style as looking too boring and cookie cutter. So to each his own. But it's true he's got a limited character design range, and definitely needs to work on that.

You know who else had a limited character design range? Jack Kirby. Every damn one of his characters aside from Iron Man has some variation on wrestling headwear, and makes the same exact expressions during fights.

I'd like a sequel, provided that the right people are involved this time. Meaning Matthew Vaughn and Jane Goldman and not that hack Jeff Wadlow.

I never knew that the consensus was that kick ass 2 sucked. I really enjoyed it and had a blast watching it. As far as the Jim carrey thing goes, I love Jim and his work. He was pretty good in KA2 also, but I think he made a bad choice in bashing the movie before the release. I think the bitterness over carrey's criticism is justified but it is best to just keep it in the past and leave it alone

The Kick Ass movies have both sucked. I am not a fan at all of Millar or JRJ. I only heard one thing from Carrey about the movie. "I did Kick-Ass 2 a month b4 Sandy Hook and now in all good conscience I cannot support that level of violence. My apologies to others involve[d] with the film. I am not ashamed of it but recent events have caused a change in my heart." Maybe he said something else that I didn't see, but if this is what they consider "crapping on" and what internet commenters think

I can't think of a better, more respectful way to bow out of a press tour for a movie that he lost some love for. Why does anyone give a shit about a press tour anyway? "I'm so sorry I don't get to hear Jim Carrey answer the same questions in every magazine and blog from now until the movie's release." Kick Ass 2 also doubled its budget worldwide. If they were expecting a billion, they are fucking stupid.

yeah I think that is all he said - I don't remember him crapping on it - that would be saying "don't go see this fucking movie - I hated doing it and I think anyone who watches it should die a horrible death"
that would be crapping on it.

what he said was - his feelings on violence have changed - that's it. WHO CARES!
anyway - he was the best part of that movie (I actually liked KA2!)

Any time an actor goes and speaks up against a movie they did a few months 'before' release, nothing is looked down on more in Hollywood. Even years later speaking up against a movie is bad idea. Look at Shia LaBeouf.

Actors hate press tours, but do them in respect to all the hard work poured into the movies from countless people. It's called marketing bub. Jim definitely soured himself a little bit. It's not even what he said, but the fact he wanted nothing to do with the movie in general

Plus Jim Carry the best part of the movie? He was entertaining, but sure as hell had very little to do to be any sort of factor. I do wonder if they cut some of his stuff out because of the fact.

@Phatmaster, I don't give a shit what Hollywood looks down on. They look down on a lot of shit much of which isn't important. Actors do NOT do press tours out of respect. Its in their contracts that's why. If they don't do them, I'm sure there's a penalty. Carrey had a change of heart and distanced himself from the movie. He didn't protest, he just walked away. Jim Carrey was absolutely the best part of Kick-Ass 2.

Romita's point was that Carrey's character didn't use guns in the film. He was a reformed gangster. He was also aware of his character in the film. Instead of taking his bizarre stance, he could have talked ab how he valued his character as someone who didn't use guns, reformed gangster, stopping criminals - he could've angled it that way EASILY.

I didn't think Kick Ass 2 was terrible or anything, I quite enjoyed it once they finally got rid of the opening voiceover that seemed to go on way too long. I don't know if Jim Carrey set out to hurt the film, or indeed if his comments stopped anyone who would have watched it from doing so. Unless he agrees to roles without researching them at all he must have known what he was going to appear in, so I wonder if maybe he genuinely had some sort of moment of panic about how he might be viewed

The first film had the shock factor and Nicolas Cage, so for the sequel it was always likely to be subject to the law of diminishing returns. I don't think Carrey hurt the film at all with his comments, and his performance was pretty good as I recall. As for John Romita Jr., well he will be outspoken - kind of his thing these days.

Mark Millar is a tool

He obviously seen comics as his "in" to movie career, since his comics were filled with junk pop culture crap and little substance, it isn't surprising his stuff is heavily reworked in every adoption.

Millar kind of sucks in general. Everything I have read of his (except red son - which was cool and had a really cool concept) is just a bunch of crap.
He tries to shock but ultimately just makes unreadable stories. Wanted was the worst comic I have ever read in my life and I own 700 digital comics and probably over 10,000 physical comics.

It's funny because his work isn't even close to the most shock-driven comics out there, even back when he got started. So he doesn't even succeed on that level. I think he's just really good at coming up with interesting high concepts and strong hooks to draw people in, but he'd got no follow-through.

@ Sean Wist

Who are you? Where did you come from?
And why do you always sound like you don't know what the fuck you're talking about?
A few articles ago you stated that Star Wars and Star Trek movies are made to be cheesy movies. WTF??!! Now you're saying that KA2 looked like it was made for TV. Why are you reporting on things you have no desire for and ridicule any chance you get. You're just mad that you don't get it.. Ya just don't. And what the fuck is an actor's discography. His CD collection.

Honestly I agree with him. KickAss 2 felt like a TV movie to me. It just felt "smaller" than the first one (despite actually having a wider scope of action).

Boycotting Kick-Ass

I think I will be boycotting everything Kick-Ass based on Romita Jr.'s comments above. Insulting someones intelligences while using the word "bonehead" makes him sound like an 8 year old. Carrey's entitled to his opinion as is Romita Jr. The only reason Romita Jr. is wining is because Carrey didn't make him more money.

John Romita Jr. needs to learn to draw again. The guys work get lazier and sketchier every year.

You misspelled "whining," moron.

Jim Caray is a complete douche. He read the script, took the part, cashed his check, then publicly proclaimed his outrage at the movie. If you support that kind of idiocy, I'm sorry for you.

Des1, it's spelled "Carrey" you moron. If you're going to correct someone's spelling, make sure to check yours first.

He misspelled a simple word in the English language (while defending a douche like Carrey and calling Romita an "8 year-old"). I misspelled the name of a has-been douchey actor who I didn't care enough about to look up.

I'm okay with that.

I'd rather watch another Jim Carrey movie than read another Romita Jr. book, he is so fucking terrible

Matthew would have to return to direct

KA-2 was a let down in my opinion. It went mainstream (meaning it didn't really take any chances) and lost its balls. Chloe was a great Hit-Girl in the first, but in the second felt tamed. Honestly, a lot of punches were pulled.

LOL, Millar isn't a director, he's a writer, and an incredibly over rated one at that.

I meant to say Matthew. Matthew, Millar--both start with an M and work together a lot.

And I agree, Millar is incredibly overrated.

Honestly I thought her character was just boring. I don't know if it's her acting, the writing, or just the fact that the awesomeness of the 12 year-old foul-mouthed ninja-killer couldn't be followed up with a 16 year-old. But I know I was completely disinterested in Hit Girl during the course of that movie.

I agree with him, Carrey took his money and fucked them, I'm never going to a Carrey movie to.

Ugh.....that thing looks like such a pile of crap. All the complaining in here about Bay and his bad movies, then the same folks turn around and salivate over something so terribly written and badly acted.....it's just mystifying.

" I'm never going to a Carrey movie to."

...to what? To jerk off? You probably shouldn't be doing that in a theater anyway

Kick Ass 2 was enjoyable, but the first one is still the superior. Most likely due to Millar's director abilities.

Millar didn't direct either movie... Matthew Vaughn did the 1st and Jeff Wadlow did the 2nd.

The second movie wasn't nearly as good as the first, no question there.
