"People who've read the comic will know that the second one ends on a cliffhanger. Hit-Girl's been arrested and she's in prison, Dave has lost his dad and he's kind of destitute," Millar told Digital Spy.

"The third one will be set two years later, and it's about where their lives are now, picking it up from there."

The Scottish scribe went on to say that costumed vigilantes have been outlawed following the events of Kick-Ass 2, but hinted that several of the characters in the book will continue their heroic pursuits underground.

"I used to love Marvel Comics where the cops were chasing superheroes, seeing them as menaces because they're not licensed in any way. So I kind of like the idea of bringing that back, because in reality there's no way a cop or a fireman is going to let a guy in a suit run into a building," he added.

"I like the idea that after they have stopped a mugging they have to run away for the police. That old-fashioned superhero thing."

Kick-Ass 3, which will bring the series to an end, will be released in 2013.
