For a decade, fans have been buzzing with rumors and speculations about a third Kick-Ass film since the release of Kick-Ass 2 in 2013. Now, Matthew Vaughn has some thrilling news for those eagerly anticipating the long-awaited threequel.

In a recent interview promoting Argylle, Matthew Vaughn revealed that Kick-Ass is actively in the works. However, he surprised fans by announcing that it won't follow the trilogy pattern set by the first two films. Instead, Kick-Ass will serve as the third part of an entirely new trilogy.

We’re halfway through it. There’s a very, very dare I say it... and it’s gonna be a cliche coming out of this head of mine. It is a very, very meta universe. It is what, you know, 'Kick-Ass' was reinventing and creating an R-rated superhero, and no one was really doing it. This is taking that whole concept to a worthy… Not even a sequel, because I think it’s just a whole new way of doing 'Kick-Ass,' which couldn’t be more 'Kick-Ass.'"


Matthew Vaughn's plan for the next phase of the 'Kick-Ass' series is more intricate than expected. Instead of a straightforward third installment (which Vaughn had previously mentioned would reboot the story), it will be part of a new three-film series. Surprisingly, 'Kick-Ass' won't be the starting point; it will come after two other movies.

Under Vaughn's production, the first film, 'School Fight,' directed by Damien Walters, has already been completed. The second film, tentatively titled 'Vram' (subject to change), is currently in production. And then Vaughn plans to create the new 'Kick-Ass.' The three films are connected.

When questioned about the plan, whether all three films would be completed before any of them were released, he responded:


No. So, when this (VRAM) is finished, I think this will launch, I'll be conservative on this, if we're lucky, Toronto, if we're not lucky, Sundance. Well, this year, next year, if you know what I mean."


Matthew Vaughn has shared that the release date for the movie is still undetermined. This is not surprising, especially considering that the script for the film is not yet complete. The lack of a set release date suggests that the creative process is ongoing, and fans can anticipate more details once the script is finalized.
