The sequel to Superhero-film-with-a-difference Kick-Ass could be on the way if the creator of the comic book the film was based on Mark Millar is to be believed.

Speaking to BBC Radio 5 Live Millar talked about possibility of a sequel after the film's healthy DVD sales:

"The estimate is [Kick-Ass] will do 100 to 150 million on DVD based on the American sales so it'll end up making a quarter of a billion on a 28 million investment... So the sequel's greenlit, we can go ahead and do the follow up now, you know. The first made so much compared to what it cost it would be crazy not to."

We'd like to think he's right; Kick-Ass was a great film and who wouldn't want to see Hit Girl and Red Mist back on our screens? However it's safe to say we'll wait until there's an official statement from the studios before we get properly excited, with writer Jane Goldman and director Matthew Vaughn busy on X-men: First Class we may be waiting a while. There's also the chance that the public is going to get superhero fatigue with the upcoming Captain America, Thor, X-Men and Avengers movies, not to mention James Gunn directed flick Super which has been touted as an even more insane take on the Kick-Ass theme of ordinary people trying to be Superheroes.
