I see they're sticking with the skirt part of her costume from the first film. Most unnecessary change to the costume in my opinion. Hit-Girl in the comics is much cooler looking without the skirt.

I like it. Aldo like with the first movie, we know there are going to be changes, "necessary" or not. It's not like they're going to affect how awesome it's going to be. This might even be an in story way of addressing the growing up issue To me it's wayyy too early to start nitpicking out of context set photos.

I thought about adding a disclaimer at the end of my post pointing out how anal I was being. Then I forgot where I was Being anal is part of our business.

I don't mind the skirt in theory, I just prefer Hit-Girl's comic book look to her costume in the movies.

Here's the script review. No Times Square final battle.

The way it's explained it sounds like it works (removing the third act from the comic, that is).

While I still am a bit annoyed the more extreme stuff was toned down, it sounds like in a way it works (at least the reviewer seems to think so).

I'm still on the fence, but that video went a long way to getting me excited (I mean really excited) for this.

I was already excited and I'm sure it works if Vaughn signed off on it but... I'm really gonna miss all that stuff. I kind of wish I was in the same situation I was with the first movie where I knew nothing about the material. Knowing means missing stuff that I loved. Still the new stuff means new surprises so I guess I got a nice tradeoff.

I think losing all that stuff was probably a compromise to get the movie made. As I have said, while it was a matter of time that a sequel would be made, I honestly thought we'd be waiting a lot longer than we did/have.

They didn't mention anything about the kids getting murdered. I wonder if that's still in there.

If it is, I'm completely confounded since the script review clearly stated the rape scene was cut out.

It sounds like the entire movie is being utterly neutered. Which I expected to some degree, but not this much.

They are neutering the hell out of the book. But I can't help but be excited nonetheless.
