After looking like it may never happen, Kick-Ass 2 is only a few months away, and now we're getting our first official image. Directed by Jeff Wadlow(Cry_Wolf), the film follows up on 2010's hit, and has Kick-Ass's(Aaron Taylor-Johnson) exploits leading to a wave of new street heroes. One of those is Colonel Stars and Stripes, seen here played by Jim Carrey. But with the emergence of more heroes, Red Mist(Christopher Mintz-Plasse) rechristens himself The Motherfucker and forms his own band of villains.
Chloe Moretz will be back as the popular Hit-Girl, who has now tried giving up her violent ways. Donald Faison, Morris Chestnut, John Leguizamo, Lindy Booth, and Robert Emms are among the many new faces joining in on the action. Kick-Ass 2 opens on June 28th 2013.
PLOT: 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.
