In terms of this year's most highly-anticipated comic book-themed movies, there are few that rank higher than Kick-Ass. Matthew Vaughn's adaptation of Mark Millar and John Romita Jr.'s comic book of the same name is at once a satire and a tribute to funny books, brought to life by a cast that includes Nicolas Cage, Mark Strong, Aaron Johnson, Chloe Moretz, and Christopher Mintz-Plasse.

Cinematical attended a press conference featuring director Matthew Vaughn, actors Aaron Johnson, Chloe Moretz and Christopher Mintz-Plasse, and comic creators Mark Millar and John Romita Jr. In addition to talking about those tough challenges getting the film made and then distributed, Moretz offered insights about bonding with her on-screen daddy, played by Nicolas Cage, and Vaughn and Millar examined the film's storytelling structure, which focuses on the ensemble rather than simply staying with the title character.
