Mark Millar‘s Kick-Ass was a violent and humorously dark look into the world of costumed heroes. The Sequel, Kick-Ass 2 looks to be every bit the thrill ride the first movie was and more. More action, more heroes, more villains, and 100% more dogs biting bad guys in the nuts.
I’m ready for Millar to get serious and get his graphic novel The Pro onto the big screen, that would be a hoot. If you haven’t read The Pro, I suggest you get out to your local comic book shop and pick it up. It’s not something you’ll want to give to your mother for Mother’s Day, but it’s a fantastically farcical look at what happens when a hooker gains superpowers.
Take a look at the trailer below and let us know what you think, will Jim Carey steal the show? Will Hit-Girl make the cheer-leading squad?
Inspired by Kick-Ass (Aaron Taylor-Johnson), other masked heroes appear. One such, Colonel Stars and Stripes (Jim Carrey), forms a team and Kick-Ass joins them on patrol, while Hit-Girl (Chloë Grace Moretz) “retires”, and tries to have a normal life. Meanwhile Red Mist (Christopher Mintz-Plasse)—reborn as The Mother Fucker—returns to play supervillain with his army, and exact revenge on Kick-Ass for his father’s death.
