No, I understand. She's a pretty young lady indeed. Maybe they'll Hobbitize her. I dunno.

I have not read the comics but is it really necessary to have Hit-Girl be the same age as she was in the original?

It's not essential to the story that she be the same age. But the character's novelty would be lost if she were an older teen. Instead of Batman in Robin's body, she becomes Buffy with a foul mouth.

I see what you're saying. The novelty in her character was the fact that she was so young but could really kick anyone's ass. So if she is a teen doing that the novelty is gone.

And, as Mark Millar has said that Kick-Ass 3 will be moving the story ahead 10 years, we'll be getting a "Buffy with a foul mouth" version of the character eventually anyway. So why rush things?

Of course, one good thing about that is that it will give Chloe and Mindy a chance to catch up to each other again before the final movie.

I think the Hit Girl of Kick-Ass 3 will be more Hannibal Lecter with tits considering the end of Kick-Ass 2.

"Buffy with a foul mouth" could work. But what made Hit-Girl so funny and entertaining was because she was a per-pubescent middle-school girl with a foul mouth who could kick ass. A teenaged version of that could work but loses the obvious novelty of her being a child and just another foul-mouthed angsty teen.

Hopefully by then people will like her character because of who she is, and not because she is a "novelty."

Dude, it's her novelty that sets her apart from other action heroes. What's wrong with enjoying the novelty of the character?

^ That's precisely what she is supposed to be. A novelty character who through Millar is able to get across his social commentary which I believe he does just fine.

Preview for Hit-Girl #1.

Elements from the HG mini will be incorporated into the KA2 movie.

I've read the preview. It's pretty harsh. Certainly will be a strong way to open the movie.
