John Romita Jr. Interview KICK-ASS.jpg

Over the past few days I’ve been posting my video interviews with the Kick-Ass cast (Aaron Johnson and Clark Duke/Chloe Moretz and Christopher Mintz-Plasse) and screenwriter Jane Goldman.  Today I’ve got John Romita Jr.

As the artist of the comic book series and one of the producers of the movie, Romita Jr. was very involved in bringing Kick-Ass to life.  He also directed a short animated sequence in the film.  During the interview he talked about what he did on the comic book and movie, what he thinks of the iPad and how that might help the comic book industry, his thoughts on WonderCon and Comic-Con, and a lot more.  Hit the jump to check it out.

Also, as I have said many times, Kick-Ass is an awesome movie.  Go see it!

    i'm loving these interviews, but I'm interested if you got one with Matthew Vaughn or not?

    Jason, do a back catalog and search for “Kick-Ass set,” you'll find one with an interview w/ Vaughn on set. It is short and not much is asked, but its very entertaining and has some funny scenes in it.

    Man I really hope they come out w/ a directors cut or uncut edition of this film w/ all of the footage that was filmed (or most of it), because it sounds even more raunchy than the film was.

    Speaking of which I just got back from my second viewing, I've now contributed a total of $52 to this movie on opening weekend (not to mention buying some drinks/popcorn at the concession stands which I never do. I hope this movie performs well and we have a second one, it is so awesome!

    I don't know if anyone has made the comparison, but doesn't Hit-Girl remind you of Natalie Portman in Leon The Professional? It is like the 21st century version, much more morbid and violent. It also kind of reminds me of Ellen Page in Hard Candy, I know reviewers have generally been harsh on such performances but I think it is great that our society is open to change, because although this in reality would be disturbing the fact that it can exist in our art is nothing but good.

    Buying the dvd the day it comes out. I might go take my girl – friend to it later this week, since I don't have any other movies to go see until Iron Man 2 comes out.

    thanks Corin, and shit 52 dollars? I honestly didn't even pay when I saw it, and it's the first time I've ever felt guilty sneaking into a movie. I plan on seeing this at least one more time, though.
