Matthew Vaughn'small Kick-Ass The reboot will be the third film in a new trilogy.

Talking to me AcceleratorVaughn explained that his new Kick-Ass film, which will ostensibly serve as a reboot of the franchise (albeit in a “very, very post-universe”), will actually be the third film in a new film trilogy.

The first film in the upcoming trilogy will be called School Fight (not to be confused with 2017's Fist Fight), directed by Damien Walters and produced by Vaughn. According to Collider, School Fight has already been shot and wrapped, while the second film in the trilogy — which Vaughn referred to as “Vram” — is currently in production.

“The trilogy will be School Fight, this film — let's call it Vram for now — and then [the] Kick-Ass [reboot], and they're all connected,” Vaughan said.

What is Matthew Vaughn's Kick-Ass Reboot?

Vaughn directed the first film in the Kick-Ass franchise, which was released in 2010 and starred Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Mark Strong, Chloë Grace Moretz and Nicholas Cage. A sequel, directed by Jeff Wadlow and produced by Vaughn, followed in 2013.

In October 2023, Vaughan said Entertainment Weekly that a Kick-Ass reboot was in the works. He said at the time, “Kick-Ass changed people's perception of what a superhero movie is. We're doing it again. None of the other characters from the other Kick-Ass are in it, though we'd love to have them back after the reboot. I can't really talk about it, but it's fun!”

While more details about School Fight and Vram remain under wraps at this time, Vaughn said of the new Kick-Ass movie, “We're halfway there. There is a very, very dare I say it… and it will be a cliché coming out of this head of mine. It's a very, very meta-universe. It's what, you know, Kick-Ass was reinventing and creating an R-rated superhero and no one really did. That takes this whole idea into a worthy…not even a sequel because I think it's just a whole new way to do Kick-Ass that couldn't be more Kick-Ass.”

Vaughn also said that the new trilogy will likely begin after Vram wraps filming, meaning fans may get to see School Fight before the next Kick-Ass movie begins production.
