Kick-Ass and Hit-Girl for 2017, and has unveiled a very different lead character.
Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, Millar shared that the new Kick-Ass series will feature a lead who is black and female. “Comics is not short of white males aged around 30; that demographic seems pretty well catered for in popular culture,” he said. “Being older or younger or female or African-American just seems more interesting to me as a writer because this character is quite unique and opens up story possibilities that haven’t been tried in almost eighty years of superhero fiction. This woman has a completely different take on Kick-Ass.”
Millar will pen the first story arc for each title and will then turn writing duties over to Daniel Way (Deadpool, Wolverine: Origins).
