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.

Red Mist in Kick-Ass

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.

Isn't it sort of stupid to make a movie about a comic that only has something like four issues out?

I visited the set a few weeks ago. Got to speak to Matthew Vaughn, Christopher Mintz-Plasse and the guy playing Kick-Ass. It was an interesting day.

No capes! Do you remember Thunderhead? Tall, storm powers? Nice man, good with kids. November 15th of '58! All was well, another day saved, when... his cape snagged on a missile fin! Stratogale! April 23rd, '57! Cape caught in a jet turbine! Metaman, express elevator! Dynaguy, snagged on takeoff! Splashdown, sucked into a vortex! NO CAPES!

when is it comin out and is it supposed to be funny?

I dont know if Mark Millar is the one pushing for all his comics to be made into films or what but its already getting out of hand. Wanted was NOT a faithful adaptation and extremely disappointing. Apparently War Heroes will one day be a film, though I am not following the comic i do not believe its very far as far as issues go. Kick Ass isnt even done yet. Thats absurd. And while I do love me some John Romita Jr this really is not spectacular in itself. Dont get your hopes up.

Damon if you don't believe that's fine. Just check back on now and again for a set report. I'm waiting for an image like AICN.

Liam on Dec 10, 2008


Brazelton, you rock man! NO CAPES EVER!

10 > It's not that its not an awesome comic. It's that more has happened in these stills than the friggin comic so far.

Issue five just came out and Has Red Mist in it. The movie got the costume way off. They made it look kinda like Hit-Girl's costume. uh oh
