Can You Kick Ass? New Contest Announced

by Iain Welford

Ever dreamed of becoming a superhero? Well,Kick-Ass is offering you the chance to become one on Facebook. Lionsgate has launched the “Become a Superhero “contest to mark the launch of the film, and is giving you the opportunity to upload your photo, create your superhero pose, and launch your name and secret identity.


Once your superhero is made, you can encourage your friends and strangers to vote for you. The 10 highest voted superheroes will go to the final round with the comic book’s creator Mark Millar picking the winner. The winner will win a cameo in Kick-Ass 2 the comic. Now that is Kick-ass prize! Find out how to enter after the jump.

To enter, click on the link here and get creative. In related news, Millar, who also created hit comics like Wanted, is going to make his debut behind the camera directing his own original Superhero movie. Here is an excerpt from IGN in which he explains why he decided to make the jump.

The big thing I’ve learned from Kick-Ass is it’s lovely to be self-employed. I love being self-employed. I’ve never really had a proper job. I dropped out of university and started writing comics. So to suddenly go into a studio system where you have lots of people who can make decisions about what you’re doing in your work I find slightly uncomfortable. Whereas what Matthew [Vaughn] did with Kick-Ass [and] what I’ve really learned from that is, you stand or fall based on your own talent. If you’re any good, it’ll work. If not, they’ll find out fast and you’ll bomb out. So I’ve luckily managed to get something independently financed and I’m going to direct it myself. I’m writing the screenplay myself. It’s a whole new property. It’s not a comic book property but it is a superhero thing and it’s going to be unlike any superhero project that anyone’s ever seen before. It’s as different from Superman or X-Men as District 9 is from Star Wars. So it’s going to be a very unusual superhero property.

There are no real details on the film itself, but hopefully more details will be revealed after the release of Kick-Ass. Share your Superhero name below, and you might grab some votes from us!
