I loved the original Kick-Ass comic. It was classic Mark Millar, the John Romita, Junior art fit the content wonderfully, and it had a little girl that cut dudes to ribbons. The sequel was considerably darker, as it should be given the ending of the first series (which was nearly identical to the film's end scene), but still quite entertaining. The film adaptation of the original was okay, but certainly left some to be desired. And that stupid, stupid jetpack. Argh.

On the bright side, the next installment of the film franchise is taking shape nicely and there's more pictures to prove it. Millar describes it as the "Empire Strikes Back of DIY vigilante carnage," and if you've read the comic, you know that is quite apt. Aside from Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Chloe Grace Moretz, and Jim Carrey, Kick-Ass 2 also features Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Clark Duke, Donald Faison, John Leguizamo, Olga Kurkulina, and Nicolas Cage, who will presumably appear in flashbacks only, considering his character Big Daddy was last seen as a crispy critter in the first film.

Check out the pictures in the gallery and the synopsis below. June 28th can't come soon enough.

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 (Chloe 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.

Review: Kick-Ass 2

Kick-Ass was one of the bigger surprises for me when I first saw it. Having not read the comic the film's dark overtones, commentary on violence in media and perturbing escalation of said violence left me coming out of t...more

A new zip-zap-zoom fancy trailer for the hyper-violent, hyper-curse-word nonsense sequel to Kick Ass has hit the webs. The trailer shows off more Jim Carrey funtimes while also teasing some detail bits about the ma...more

Red Band Trailer: Kick-Ass 2

The last trailer for Kick-Ass 2 left me very un-enthused for the film. It just didn't seem to have the same dark comedic streak that the first one had. With a new director and screenwriter that makes sense, but it just ...more

Trailer: Kick-Ass 2

The International version of the Kick-Ass 2 trailer is far better than the previous Red Band version. Instead of highlighting the scene stealing Jim Carrey's Colonel Stars and Stripes and noticeable flaws like the awful gree...more

First official image from Kick-Ass 2 reveals Jim Carrey

Kick-Ass 2 is flying really below the radar right now, especially for a film that's most likely going to succeed on word of mouth instead of brand name. After all the original Kick-Ass was awesome, but wasn't a reso...more
