Kick-Ass movie news.  The big name in the cast is Nicolas Cage as Big Daddy; the only other recognizable name is McLovin as Red Mist.  The rest (at least so far) are unknowns, which is as it should be.  Millar is very closely involved.

Highlight of the interview:
Quote
NRAMA: Tell me about the casting process, especially for the unknowns. How did you end up, for instance, figuring out who, among a couple dozen little girls can swear like a sailor – or worse than a sailor, while committing acts of horrific violence?

MM: That was one of the funniest things we did. I don’t know if we’re going to be able to show this on the DVD extras, but every night, I would log on to a special website with a password, and they had uploaded the casting sessions with the prospective little girl and Dave [“Kick-Ass”]. That was always my favorite part – to log on and watch these kids...

NRAMA: Swear and get all angry?

MM: [laughs] You had all these kids who looked like Disney Channel people – cute as a button, just swearing like sailors. It was my favorite thing in the whole world – it was just hilarious. And then I would be wracked with pangs of guilt, thinking “My God, what are we doing?” But pretty spoon I’d find it all very funny again, and end up showing my friends.

The day we found Chloe Moritz...it was unbelievable. Everybody in the room just got really excited – the other little girls were good, but Chloe just knew how to swear. She put her heart and soul into it. She’s a brilliant actress. She gives you the same feeling that you got when you saw Jodie Foster in Taxi Driver when she was 12. You just can’t believe that a child is capable of pulling off this stuff. It’s amazing.

I was going to go as Luke for Halloween, but I'm not sure if I'm actually going anywhere anymore, so...haha. And obviously it'd be better if I had a tall guy in a top hat to go with.

I'm all for a movie. I liked the characters and the animation better than the game, anyhow. Live action would be great, too, as long as they actually get an adorable little boy to play Luke and not a petite teenage girl. (Yeah, I know that's a tad hypocritical...)

So Frank Miller either Dresses like the Spirit, IS the spirit, or the Spirit is ... oh fuck... what's the word for when someone self-inserts into a fanfic?

NOTE:  I Know nothing about The Spirit, other than it's a comic book.

Term.  Self-insertion.  You might be thinking of a Mary Sue, which doesn't by necessity involve self-insertion, but sometimes does.

Mary Sue is really more throwing a new character into an existing work and playing it up to absurd levels.  Self-insertion is throwing in a new character that is or represents the author.  You can have both at once, but you don't need one to have the other.

This is more of an example of taking an existing character, completely redesigning it to serve the purpose of an author-avatar, and then playing it up to ridiculous levels.  It's common enough that I'm sure there's a trope name for it, but I don't care to go digging for it right now.  Let's just call it The Goddamn Batman, for now.

The term "canon-Sue" (also written as canon!Sue) or "Possession Sue" is used to describe canon characters who are changed significantly from their original canon characterization and sometimes even divorced from their original context completely. Such characters are seen as having been heavily idealized to the point of being more of a stand-in for the author's wish fulfillment than being the original canon character.

Wikipedia really does have all the answers.
