Kick-Ass Movie PosterIGN has debuted the first four character posters for Matthew Vaughn’s Kick-Ass tonight. By now everyone has probably heard about this (or seen the leaked Comic-Con footage), so I don’t think it needs an elaborate introduction. Kick-Ass is the adaptation of Mark Millar’s awesome comic series about a kid who decides to dress up and be a superhero. While it could’ve been a goofy, Hollywood spoof, Vaughn went all out to make sure it was a bloody, brutal, violent adaptation true to his own pure vision. And that’s already starting to show even in the marketing, as these posters definitely look awesome.

Kick-Ass is both written and directed by British filmmaker Matthew Vaughn, of Layer Cake and Stardust previously. The screenplay was co-written by Vaughn and his writing partner Jane Goldman, of Stardust as well. The story is an adaptation of Mark Millar’s comic of the same name that is currently in the middle of its first series. Kick-Ass was funded entirely by Matthew Vaughn and his own private investors and sold once finished to Lionsgate earlier this year. They’ve currently set an April 16th, 2010 release date for the film, although I hope they change that, because that’s a terrible opening day. Hopefully we’ll see a trailer soon!
