Behind the Scenes[]

  • "Mindy is a fascinating character. Dave is her access point in the first film — he's the regular kid who wants to be a superhero — and that's totally relatable. Here's this little girl who is basically raised to be an assassin; by this man who is insane. I mean, Big Daddy is treated like a hero in the first film, but in our film we even take a step back and say, no, he loves his daughter and that's a good thing, but he was totally crazy and he robbed her of any kind of normal life. We try to deal with that in a very real way. What does that mean for her? So even though she's changed a lot physically between the first and the second film, her emotional growth has been stunted because of this childhood. That's where we stand in the second movie where we have to deal with the fact that she is stuck in this superhero mentality. When we start at the beginning of this film, emotionally, she's right where she was at the end of the first film. She's Hit-Girl and she's going to high school and pretending to be Mindy McCready, but she believes she really is a superhero, and in our film she's confronted with the harsh reality. At some point she's going to have to figure out who she is or she's never going to have a normal life."
