Blu-ray Monday Giveaway: Kick-Ass

[tweetmeme source= “blurayreporter” only_single=false]

This week, despite being a day late due to the UK’s bank holiday, we’re giving away one of 2010’s hottest films so far, Matthew Vaughn’s tongue-in-cheek, superhero send-up Kick-Ass.

Based on the popular comic by Mark Millar, who also wrote Sin City and 300, Kick-Ass arrived in cinemas in spring to considerable critical acclaim. Telling the story of an ordinary teenager inspired to become a real-life superhero, Kick-Ass comes to Blu-ray Disc with an array of exclusive special content including BonusView video commentary and a high-definition, feature length making-of documentary.

As ever with Blu-ray Monday, you have two chances to win. For your first entry, simply retweet the following post on Twitter: Tweet this

Then for a second entry, leave a comment on this post letting us know which as-yet unadapted comic book or superhero you’d most like to next see in a movie. Are you looking forward to Captain America, Thor, or The Avengers, or are you still waiting for your favourite character to be picked up? Or, with reboots of characters such as Fantastic Four and Judge Dredd in the works, is there a hero or heroine you’d like to see have a second chance on the silver screen?

To make it easier for us to contact you, leave your Twitter details with your comment. As usual, we look forward to your suggestions!

    Not strictly a superhero but I’d love to see worzel gummidge made into a film! I loved him as a child!!

    The Books Of Magic. Fantastic series of graphic novels which totally lend themselves to film adaptation.

    waiting for the new wonderwoman movie 😉

  4. 5 Stuart McKenzie September 6, 2010 at 10:56 am

    Oh, forgot to mention – SuperGran from the eighties would make an interesting prospect too.

  5. 6 Stuart McKenzie September 6, 2010 at 10:55 am

    Dangermouse surely deserves a mention, but then there have been LOADS of superhero movies that flopped, but COULD do well if treated right. Daredevil, Elektra & Punisher deserve special mention in this category. Plus, Lucas should revisit Howard The Duck.

    I’d like to see Dandy make an appearance, but not as a main role – Just as an extra or some really small parts in big films.

  8. 9 Molly Louise September 5, 2010 at 5:19 pm

    Captain Underpants for sure 🙂 @msmollylouise

  9. 10 Vanessa September 5, 2010 at 3:40 pm

    I can’t believe they still haven’t got going with Wonder Woman. Maybe they’ll let Joss Whedon back on the project if The Avengers goes well.

    I keep thinking how potentially amazing it could be to see the Preacher comic made into a film, if it was done well. Absolutely amazing books. I’d especially love to see Jessie and Cassidy on the big screen. Not sure who I’d choose to play them tho!

    Here are two different ends of the spectrum:

    Jem would be fun

    and from the graphic novel type:

    Death from N. Gaiman

    Alot of the characters I like already have movies, which is awesome. Looking forward to the Avengers.
    When I was little my brothers and I invented a superhero called the Husk, based on a hideous yellow shapeless toy I won at a fair. The toy could morph into this colossal HUSK or fur and fury, protecting the innocent. It is possible my brother invented the word Husk, but I think it invokes fear and respect.
    Perhaps I will write a script.

  22. 23 Dale R September 2, 2010 at 6:02 pm

    The Black Condor for sure.

  23. 24 Doug September 2, 2010 at 6:01 pm

    Not strictly a super hero but Berk from The Trap Door was always a hero of mine when I was a nipper! Just imagine a new 3D imagining of Berk, Boni & Drutt on the big screen… Shame Willie Rushton is no longer around to voice it.

  24. 25 Geri September 2, 2010 at 5:59 pm

    Minnie the Minx, let’s hear it for the GURRRLS!

  25. 27 Rebecca Ball September 2, 2010 at 11:44 am

    I’d Like to see a Dangermouse Movie



  26. 28 Christine Collier September 2, 2010 at 11:44 am

  27. 30 Solange September 1, 2010 at 6:25 pm


  28. 31 toniq September 1, 2010 at 6:20 pm

    captain america!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  29. 32 Rebecca September 1, 2010 at 4:28 pm

    I’d love to see a WonderWoman movie (I know there’s a cartoon version out, but a ‘real life’ one would kick ass!) We need a female superhero film! For some reason, I could see Katy Perry playing the part if she could work on a tough, kick-ass exterior lol.

  30. 33 Steve Johnson September 1, 2010 at 1:15 pm

    Longshot from Marvel would be could…imagine the probabilities! 😉


  31. 34 Kevin September 1, 2010 at 11:27 am

    How about jayce and the wheeled warriors or Mask the movie 80s classics

  32. 35 Gaz Mills September 1, 2010 at 9:40 am

    I would like to see a story behond Thunderbird. I think it is a story that could manifest itself on the big screen, that even people who don’t know about him would enjoy

  33. 36 Lucy September 1, 2010 at 5:48 am

    I’m torn because there is part of me that would love to see my dad’s excitement when a Captain America film is released but I’m really not sure that I want to hear about it EVERY single time I talk to him. And then there’s the Green Lantern…….

  34. 37 Raelene graham September 1, 2010 at 12:57 am

    I used to love watching the greatest American hero on t.v,would love to see it on the big screen!

  35. 38 Tania M August 31, 2010 at 11:52 pm

    Arsenic and Old Lace!
    Gertrude Yorke and her psychic connection to her pet dinosaur were my first introduction to comic books and they opened my mind to the strange, odd and unexplained!

  36. 39 Amy W August 31, 2010 at 9:45 pm

    Follow on twitter & Rt contest

    I have to 2nd Thundercats!!!!!!!!!! What a great show, so many great characters a movie would so very hot to watch!!!!!!!! Yum!!!

  37. 41 Superted2day August 31, 2010 at 8:25 pm

  38. 42 Caroline Gale August 31, 2010 at 6:40 pm

    Got to be the Bash Street Kids! Roll on Beano adaptations!


  39. 43 Lora August 31, 2010 at 6:29 pm

    They repeated Super Gran at some point when I was a kid and I loved the idea of having a super Scottish granny! I think she’s long overdue a comeback. The only other superheroes I remember watching were the Power Rangers and that’s only because it was on before the cartoon I wanted to watch!

  40. 44 Sam August 31, 2010 at 6:27 pm

    I definately agree with bananaman I used to love it when I was a kid! And maybe superted and spotty as a kiddies film lol

  41. 45 Nadia August 31, 2010 at 6:16 pm

    I’m waiting with baited breath for The Avengers – I really hope it lives up to expectations *fingers crossed*

    I’d also quite like to see The Limping Bandit made into a film.

    ..ok, he’s not a real comic book hero, but my dad used to make up stories about him when I was a kid 😛


  42. 46 Laura Hadland August 31, 2010 at 6:02 pm

    A Bananaman movie would be epic. Truly epic. If you’re in a very particular age range anyway.

    “Every time Eric eats a banana, an amazing transformation occurs…”

  43. 48 Ennio morry August 31, 2010 at 6:01 pm

    Captain America, please!

  44. 49 mel butcher August 31, 2010 at 6:01 pm

    but my ultimate superhero movie would have to be Supergran. @melspur

  45. 50 mel butcher August 31, 2010 at 6:00 pm

    a Thundercats movie could be good, i’m also liking the He-Man idea too

  46. 51 tracey August 31, 2010 at 5:59 pm

    i would like to see wonderwoman back as not that many female superheros well there was supergran on tv when i was a kid lol @mrstracey1972

  47. 52 Jamie Speakman August 31, 2010 at 5:47 pm

    can’t wait for the second coming of dredd – if the helmet stays on and karl urban can be sufficiently grumpy it could banish all those sly stallone nightmares

  48. 53 Masoud August 31, 2010 at 5:45 pm

    I can’t wait for the Avengers honestly! Also, maybe a new Hulk movie???

  49. 54 Raul - @Vengeful_ August 31, 2010 at 5:42 pm

    I really can’t say there’s any superhero I’ve been waiting to see on the silver screen. Between Batman, Wolverine, the Hulk, and now Captain America those are the only superheroes I loved as a kid.

    I am looking forward to Thor and up until now I had no idea another Judge Dredd was in the works. I’ll have to do some googling after this post!

    Actually I would have loved for the silver surfer to have had his own movie. The horrible fantastic four movie didn’t do any justice to the character.

  50. 55 Jade August 31, 2010 at 5:38 pm

    I’d like to see a rehash of He-Man Masters Of The Universe, set totally in Eternia though – none of this coming to Earth and hanging out with Courtney Cox lark.

    And if She-Ra and her hot friends could come along for the ride then game on!

    I think a hot new cast possibly with Channing Tatum as the man himself, and some Avatar style effects could make for a really amazing movie!

    I would love to see Danger Girl made into a film as I love the graphic novels 😀


  52. 57 Dave August 31, 2010 at 5:32 pm

    I’d love to see a movie about Gambit.

  53. 58 Jody August 31, 2010 at 5:32 pm

    I’m in! Thanks for the contest. @concisecactus

  54. 59 Rebecca J August 31, 2010 at 5:31 pm

    can’t wait for The Avengers! should be fun

  55. 60 Jake August 31, 2010 at 5:29 pm
