Trust in Vaughn. He's the watchful eye in the sky protecting our beloved kickers of ass.

If I could thumbs up this post I would. Even still, I'm sure I'll have my doubts up till the release of the movie, and then I'll start the long road to enjoying it for being what it is, and not disliking it because it's not exactly like the comic is.

I know what you mean. The toning down of the graphic violence was a bitter pill for me to swallow. As was the elimination of the Times Square battle which I was greatly looking forward to.

Still I trust Vaughn and I know the backbone of the original material is strong enough to survive the changes, especially when it's in such loving hands.

If you've read the script and haven't sent me a copy I'm going to fly up to Canada to put my foot in your arse!

Unfortunately not I just wouldn't be surprised at all. This is Millar after all

The script review said that Times Square battle wasn't in the movie though. I would absolutely love if it was but I've made peace with the notion that it isn't.

Ah yeah. That's right. I forgot it was the script review...but things can change as well I have no knowledge, and I'm not trying to hint at anything, but I just wouldn't be surprised if it turned up in there.

I actually do wonder how they will handle it not being in there. That's a pretty significant alteration and basically the climax of the story. I assume that Millar suggested to them an interesting alternative.

It could still be a street fight just relocated from Times Square to some boring Vancouver back alleys. I just hope we still get that great moment from the book where Hit-Girl takes a piece of glass and slowly saws off...

Ah hell. You know what I'm talking about. That has GOT to be in the movie...

So naturally it won't be.

I can't believe that the film is almost done principal already.

Maybe that particular action won't be in it, but I'm sure Hit-Girl will still fight that character. I tell you though, it will be a bit of an adjustment watching a fifteen year old Hit-Girl, especially when the whole point of the character is that she's an eleven year old. I assume they'll be having Chloe play her age, since she said herself in an interview that she "wont be going back in time."

Well Hit-Girl's going to be older in the Kick-Ass 3 and Hit-Girl Returns comic books. We just have to adjust to the change a little earlier for the movies. Ah well. I guess it was just too much to ask Chloe to exist in a vacuum between movies.

I wish Millar would do Hit-Girl Returns first. If the characters come to a bad end in KA3 it might be painful to read HGR after the fact.

I utterly and complete forgot about "Hit-Girl Returns". I think he wants to get "Kick-Ass 3" out first...and really it's only natural. I guess the soonest we could see that is maybe next summer? I don't recall if he has discussed a release date yet.

"Hit-Girl" is slated to be released in hardcover at the end of January according to Amazon, which seems like a really fast turn around date. I think we had to wait a few months for "Kick-Ass 2". I'm not complaining. I just have always thought it weird the wait between the last issue and the hardcover. For instance the second arc of "Batman" concluded a couple months ago now, yet we have to wait until freaking MARCH to get the next hardcover.
