First Look: Aaron Johnson & Jim Carrey Are Suited Up in '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!
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?
