First Look: Christopher Mintz-Plasse as Red Mist in Kick-Ass
That crazy wannabe comic book character you see above is Red Mist, played by Christopher Mintz-Plasse aka McLovin, in the upcoming Kick-Ass movie. Thanks to Ain't It Cool News, we've got our first look at Red Mist in full costume. The scene you see is apparently the first time Dave and Red Mist meet, which hasn't occurred yet in any issues of the comics that are already out. Moriarty has also posted the first part of his Kick-Ass set visit, which is a must read considering he is the only journalist who was allowed to actually visit the set. They're debuting more photos every day, but for now take a moment to check this out first.

As excited as I am for this, I fear these photos and these costumes are only going to make people laugh at the moment. Eventually, with a trailer, everyone will change their minds about this, but until then, McLovin in a cheesy wannabe superhero costume is going to cause quite a ruckus, I assure you. This photo today isn't as badass as the first two we debuted in November, but I'm still glad to be seeing more photos from Kick-Ass. The only surefire way to convince anyone that this is going to be kick ass is to suggest that you all read the comic. Once you go through it, you'll understand why I still think this looks awesome.
