Here's our first official look at Kick-Ass 2 featuring Aaron Taylor-Johnson as Kick-Ass, Jim Carrey as Colonel Stars and Stripes, and his masked sidekick dog. In the story Carrey's character invites Kick-Ass to join his group of superheroes called "Justice Forever."
The movie is being directed by Jeff Wadlow, and also stars Chloë Grace Moretz, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Morris Chestnut, John Leguizamo, and Donald Faison. Here's the synopsis for the film...
Kick-Ass, Hit Girl and Red Mist return for the follow-up to 2010's irreverent global hit: Kick-Ass 2. After Kick-Ass' (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) insane bravery inspires a new wave of self-made masked crusaders, led by the badass Colonel Stars and Stripes (Jim Carrey), our hero joins them on patrol. When these amateur superheroes are hunted down by Red Mist (Christopher Mintz-Plasse)—reborn as The Mother F%&*^r—only the blade-wielding Hit Girl (Chloë Grace Moretz) can prevent their annihilation.When we last saw junior assassin Hit Girl and young vigilante Kick-Ass, they were trying to live as normal teenagers Mindy and Dave. With graduation looming and uncertain what to do, Dave decides to start the world's first superhero team with Mindy. Unfortunately, when Mindy is busted for sneaking out as Hit Girl, she's forced to retire—leaving her to navigate the terrifying world of high-school mean girls on her own. With no one left to turn to, Dave joins forces with Justice Forever, run by a born-again ex-mobster named Colonel Stars and Stripes.Just as they start to make a real difference on the streets, the world's first super villain, The Mother F%&*^r, assembles his own evil league and puts a plan in motion to make Kick-Ass and Hit Girl pay for what they did to his dad. But there's only one problem with his scheme: If you mess with one member of Justice Forever, you mess with them all.
The movie hits theaters on June 28, 2013. This first official image from Kick-Ass 2 comes from Entertainment Weekly via Popculturology. I really enjoyed the comic book sequel, I actually liked it more than the first, and I hope this sequel also ends up being better than the first film. Comic creator Mark Millar says it will be, and I'm excited to see it!
