The Avengers isn't the only superhero movie making news this week. It looks like Kick-Ass 2 is officially moving forward and this time we mean it!

Despite claims from creator Mark Millar back in February that Kick-Ass 2 would be going into production this summer, not much movement has been made on the comic book sequel...that is until now. Deadline has confirmed that Universal is moving forward with the project and hoping to start production this August. The film was a surprise hit when it was released back in 2010 taking in over $100 million worldwide.

Director Matthew Vaughn, who is busy with the X-Men: First Class sequel will turn the reigns over to Never Back Down director Jeff Wadlow who also penned the script. One hurdle the production will face is signing the film's original cast that included Aaron Johnson, Chloe Moretz and Christopher Mintz-Plasse who have all seen their stars rise since the original films release. None were locked in for sequels, so new deals will need to be made for them to reprise their roles and of course schedules will have to be worked out, which could be difficult, especially for Chloe Grace Moretz who played Hit Girl. Moretz currently has five films in pre-production, including the remake of Stephen King's Carrie.

No release date has been set, but John Romita Jr who illustrated the comic book recently spoke about the project and suggested a May 2013 release was being eyed. So are you excited to finally see 'Kick-Ass 2' heading to the big screen? Let us know in the comments and be sure to subscribe to ClevverMovies to stay in the movie know.
