Regisseur Matthew Vaughn over de film:
"The whole movie's about taking the things that we're familiar with and turning them on their head, without losing touch with what people like or love about superhero comic-book movies. There's nothing in this movie that couldn't, in theory, happen in real life. If you took an 11 year-old girl and trained the hell out of her every fucking day for six years, there's a chance she could do most of that stuff. It's not likely, but it's possible. Every costume was designed, I said, 'Make sure this could be made by some guy who's been buying stuff on the internet'."
