Hit-Girl Stars In New Kick-Ass Poster
She could kill you with one finger

Kick-Ass comes out in April, and from everything we've seen is set to be one of the films of next year: smart, funny and very, very wrong. And the character in the film who's really going to get the Daily Mail all riled up is Hit Girl, the 11 year-old killer with a nice line in cursing.

Played by Chloe Moretz, Hit-Girl and her adoring Papa Big Daddy (Nicolas Cage) train incessantly to hone their abilities and become formidable assassins. No, that's not on the national curriculum and yes, it does involve missing a little school.

Hit-Girl's set to become one of the most iconic characters of 2010, so watch out for her when Kick-Ass is finally released on April 2 here in the UK, and two weeks later in the US. It also stars Aaron Johnson and Mark Strong, and is of course directed by Matthew Vaughn.

Can't wait!
I love this comic so much it's not real! Hit-Girl has the greatest opening line of any character in anything ever written. Ever. More
