Following hot on the heels of Wednesday's wonderful Red Band trailer, comes a few more KICK-ASS 2 goodies in the form of six character posters. Alongside the familiar Kick-Ass and Hit-Girl, we get our first look up-close look at Daniel Kaluuya as Black Death, Lindy Booth as Night-Bitch, Christopher Mintz-Plasse as The Mother Fucker and Olga Kurkulina as Mother Russia. KICK-ASS 2 features dozens of costumed crime-fighters, so expect more posters to hit over the coming weeks.


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.

KICK-ASS 2 has been moved to August 16th in the US, but the UK will still be getting it on July 19th as planned.

I don't know if this is true, but there's a rumour that Mika has written a song for KA2, as he did for KA1.
If it is true, then please don't waste his new song as you did with Kick Ass (We Are Young) It was an awesome song and the video was great, but the song played at the very end of the credits so no one would hear it (because few have the patience to wait for the first song to finish before Mika's song) and the video he made wasn't even on the bonus features of the DVD!
If you have asked Mika to write for you again, please make it the main song of the movie! Mika's skills deserve nothing less. He's an incredible songwriter and singer and his work deserves to be treated much better than last time.
