Did you know?
Mark Millar and Matthew Vaughn knew each other socially through Jane Goldman and her husband, but came to work together because of Thor (2011). Millar had sent Vaughn some suggestions for the Marvel adaptation, but Vaughn ultimately left that project. He came to Millar to see if he had any interesting ideas, nearly leading to a sequel to the Bible called "American Jesus". As they were discussing that, Millar mentioned Kick-Ass, and started sending Vaughn the early script for the comic.

Dave Lizewski: [voiceover] In the world I lived in, heroes only existed in comic books. And I guess that'd be okay, if bad guys were make-believe too, but they're not.
