Hysterical critics of the controversial superhero film Kick-Ass can breathe easy.
Kick-Ass director Matthew Vaughn and writer Jane Goldman have revealed they don't want rush into making a sequel.
The comedy comic book movie starring Nicholas Cage and Aaron Johnson has proved a huge hit in its opening weekend, and a sequel was rumoured to be in the pipeline already.
But Matthew revealed: "No, we're not [planning a sequel]. If it continues doing well then we might but I just don't like counting my chickens before the eggs hatched."
But Jane admitted there was plenty of potential for the story to be continued.
She said: "Yeah absolutely but we don't want to jump the gun."
There was originally some controversy over 13-year-old Chloe Moretz playing 10-year-old foul-mouthed deadly assassin Hit Girl in the movie, but Matthew feels she has now won over all audiences.
He said: "Dare I say it but the only people who complained really were the Daily Mail, and everyone who's seen the movie suddenly they go, 'Oh'.
"It's comic book, it's fun and she's a minor character in the film.
"I got annoyed with people complaining about the swearing in the film, because in Fish Tank the swearing is far worse and far more realistic and no one's complained about that and I thought 'Why are they picking on Jane?'.
"And no one's complained about me. I thought if they're going to have a fight, why not pick me, Jane just did what she was told."
