Kick-Ass 2

We're pretty excited to see the gestating sequel Kick-Ass 2 hit theaters later this summer, but only paparazzi photos have surfaced online, and that's not our bag. However, the first official photo from the comic book sequel has arrived and it shows us Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Jim Carrey in full superhero garb as Kick-Ass and Colonel Stars and Stripes and his trusty guard dog (who is named Sophia in the comic). Stripes invites Kick-Ass to join his group of heroes Justice Forever who are hellbent on taking down Red Mist, now known as The Mother Fucker, and his whole crime ring. I can't wait to see Jim Carrey in this!

Here's the first official look at Kick-Ass 2 from EW (via ComingSoon):

Kick-Ass 2 - First Look

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 Fucker, only the blade-wielding Hit Girl (Chloe Moretz) can prevent their annihilation. Donalid Faison, John Leguizamo, Morris Chestnut and more also star in Kick-Ass 2, the comic book sequel based on the series by Mark Millar, and the film is slated to hit theaters in a prime spot this summer June 28th. Cool?

    I really, really, really want to see the trailer for this! Me and my band are extras (we're part of the Toxic Mega Cunts). :)
    • me
      sorry if i offend you but your band name sounds like a really awesome porn parody

        He means him and his band are acting in the movie and playing the characters from the comic whose team name was the Toxic Mega Cunts. And congrats Mr.AlterRed, that's fantastic!

        Hahah, yeah TMC's are the villains in the movie... though it'd make an excellent band name!

    Bring it.

    Oh he looks fantastic.

    Jim's making a decent comeback! (Kick-Ass 2, The Incredible Burt Wonderstone, and Dumb and Dumber To)
    • Akirakorn
      I dunno, he looks like he's up to his old shtick in Burt Wonderstone... ...heres to hoping!
      • Big Boss
        Well, after looking at Yes Man and Mr. Popper's Penguins, I think Jim might redeem himself on this run. He's had time.

    I can't wait for this!! I wonder if they filmed the dog head scene.
  • the_situasian
    I still find it wildly bizarre that Johnson hyphenated his last name after he got married. Also I kind of wish the villain was Motherfucker Jones from Horrible Bosses.
  • DAVIDPD
    P-A-R-T. WHY?! Because I GOTTA!!!
  • Xerxexx
    Is Donald Fasion a super hero in this or a cop? Cause I kinda see the cop role going to Morris Chestnut.

    How much has the Zanzibar strip club paid to be in this promotional image?

    No...not cool.
  • David Banner
    Hope this one is R rated as well. That dog seems familiar...
  • quazimoto
    First off, I loved Kick-Ass, and Matthew Vaughn and Co. are why. A terrific pairing of an astute director, solid writing camp, and the drive to make what they wanted, without studio interference, is what why the first film was so good. Now with Universal backing this, Jeff Wadlow somehow both writing AND directing this and Vaughn ony attached as a producer? I'd be lying if I said I wasn't concerned. Hope for the best, maybe Wadlow will finally hit one out of the park, but I won't hold my breath.

    That is cool but this picture is old man. You guys are getting slow at movie up dates.

      It was just released officially this week, it's not old. You're referring to set photos, which we don't post or condone looking at all. We're not behind, we just prefer not to stoop to levels of gossip just for crappy set photos. This is an official photo released by the studio.
