I don’t like Mark Millar. I don’t think he’s a particularly good writer, but his comics have been made into good movies (Wanted and Kick-Ass). He’s a constant self-hype machine that sends the geek world into a frenzy with information that should be taken with a warehouse of salt. And it’s time again to find your local salt warehouse because Millar said on the UK’s Radio 5 [via AICN] that the DVD/Blu-ray sales of Kick-Ass have been good enough to get the sequel a green light.
If Millar has proven himself reliable (how many times has he said that Wanted 2 is moving forward?), then I would be ecstatic at this news. But we’re basically just reporting this so you can measure your expectations. Perhaps, Kick-Ass 2 really does have a green light because of solid home video sales. But I’ll wait for a second source to say so before I fire up my jetpack in joy.
