SAN DIEGO — Christopher Mintz-Plasse is spreading the word at Comic-Con that a sequel to "Kick-Ass" appears to be on the way.

The co-star of the 2010 action comedy told a crowd at the San Diego fan convention Friday that "Kick-Ass 2" looks as though "it's going to happen."

Mintz-Plasse says shooting might begin in September.

The actor dropped the news during a panel to promote "ParaNorman," an animated horror comedy featuring the voices of Mintz-Plasse, Kodi Smith-McPhee and Anna Kendrick that opens in August.

"The word's out," Mintz-Plasse said. "You heard it from me first, and I'm going to get my butt kicked."

At the end of "Kick-Ass," Mintz-Plasse's wealthy young comic-book devotee was left on the verge of entering the super-villain business against the film's star, Aaron Johnson, who plays another youth gaining fame as a superhero.
