Given that both pictures and video have been leaked in the past couple of months fans and moviegoers have been speculating what the exact content of Jeff Wadlow‘s Kick-Ass 2 will be. Kick-Ass 2 co- creator Mark Millar has been quoted saying the sequel will be “controversial,” which Christopher Mintz-Plasse contested months ago stating the controversial scene involving super villain gang rape would not be in the film.
Even with the promise by Mintz-Plasse that the sequel would still be “fucked-up,” movie fans are still speculating the exact plot of Kick-Ass 2. Those speculations can now be put to rest as the official plot synopsis has been released.
We’ve posted a portion of the synopsis below for you to digest, check out the rest over at Coming Soon.
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.
Did you die-hard Kick-Ass fans notice the subtle change the studio made in renaming Jim Carrey‘s character Colonel Stars as Colonel Stars “and Stripes?” It feels like a bit of a cheap decision tacking on the “Stripes” name rather than including the character in the sequel (Lieutenant Stripes is second-in-command to Colonel Stars), but it’s an adaptation of the comic book, changes are bound to happen.
Many of those changes have yet to be seen and probably will not be seen until the film’s official release date on June 28th, 2013, guess we’ll have to wait and see.
Kick-Ass 2 stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Chloe Grace Moretz, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Morris Chestnut, John Leguizamo, Donald Faison and Jim Carrey.
