'Kick-Ass' Still Looks Accurate

November 14, 2008


Newsarama has posted the first official stills from Kick-Ass, Matthew Vaughn's adaptation of the Mark Millar/John Romita Jr. comic. I am in shock that the hero's costume looks as faithful as it does. It's supposed to be made by a teenager, and so it looks like it might be made by a teenager. Astounding. Did the costume designer not get the memo that costumes are meant to be overly elaborate and made of painted rubber, black leather, or scale-patterned cloth? How can you sell action figures of this? And now you're going to have to find a new way to infuriate fanboys. What a failure.

Close-up below the cut.
