Not long to go know before Dave (Kick-Ass) Lizewski and Mindy (Hit-Girl) Macready return to our screens to once again do battle with Chris D'Amico (formerly known as Red Mist, now delightfully re-monikered... The Motherf*****). So far we've seen little of the movie outside of the odd pap shot here and there, although they did uncover some pretty interesting new additions to the sequel (Hit-Bike being one!). With its summer release just around the corner, prepare for all that to change as the marketing push begins proper. Here then, is the very first official image from the flick, featuring Jim Carrey's Colonel Stars, a one time mafia member who left that life behind to become a masked crusader of justice. Genuinely can't wait to see what Carrey will bring to the role.
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 opens in the UK July 19th 2013.
