Update: Huh? The clip seems to have been removed. Sorry ’bout that. We’ll update ASAP.

Update #2: Complain on Twitter and dreams will come true. Don’t let anyone tell you differently. Many thanks to @Donnehh for this YouTube version.

You’ll watch this clip, and then, right when it starts gettin’ good, it’ll cut. Agh! The frustration of these teases! Still, it’s an excellent clip of what’s to come in Kick-Ass 2, releasing on June 28th. Honestly, it gave me goosebumps. The final showdown between the forces of good, led by Kick-Ass (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) and Hit-Girl (Chloë Grace Moretz), against the forces of evil, led by The Mother F%&*^r – yeah, ’cause that’s not a pain in the ass to type – (Christopher Mintz-Plasse), is going to be epic! Give it a watch,

Right?! I want to see those two square off so badly! And the fight between Kick-Ass and The Mother F%&*^r will be pathetically awesome, I can’t wait. This sequel is directed by Jeff Wadlow, and from the looks of this clip, I think fans of the first Kick-Ass as well as the comics will be quite happy. What do you guys think?

So what’s going on in the world of super hero television and film?  Glad you asked!  We’ve got the latest news here on all the little tidbits that you need to stay updated on some of the best current super hero projects.  Read, and enjoy.

The first bits are some set photos to tease about the upcoming Thor: The Dark World.  Get a look at Lady Sif (Jaimie Alexander), an army of Asgardians and their Marauder enemies and what looks to be a plethora of yurts.

‘Kick Ass 2’: Mother Russia Revealed!

A few days ago, we showed you a series of behind the scenes shots from the set of Kick-Ass 2: Balls to the Wall, courtesy of director Jeff Wadlow. One shot in particular (above) featured Christopher Mintz-Plasse and an unknown bodybuilder. This was such an obvious tease to Mother Russia; Red-Mist’s body guard. However, with the shot being cut off at the neck, fans we’re left wondering which actress actually landed the part.

Is it Chyna? Gina Carano? Or, perhaps, the comeback of Brigitte Nielsen? Nope, none of the above. The buff mystery lady is an unknown, actually.

The role has gone to *drumroll* Russian born bodybuilder, Olga Kurkulina.

According to Bleeding Cool, and their translation from the Russian site Iron World, Olga confirmed her hiring to the cast as the six foot tall ex-KGB agent under the employ of Red-Mist:

“I competed against other candidates from America, Switzerland and Holland. I spent three weeks in the casting, which took place at Pinewood studios. At the end, the director told me that I was getting a role. This was a difficult time psychologically and physically.

Many people worked hard and from the heart to help me. On August 30th we fly to Toronto for a month’s shooting on location, and then we go back to London where stunts will be filmed at a local studio.

Now I’m train hard, learning new movements for attack and defense working with professionals on my acting and speech training.”

Also included in the interview with Olga was a picture of her beside stunt coordinator Buster Reeves, and another unknown individual only known as Michael. Maybe an assistant to Reeves, who knows? Anyway, here’s your first real look at Mother Russia:

She’s perfect to play Mother Russia! There defiantly won’t be any fake ass accents here, since Olga is a born and raised Russian. She’s also pure muscle. Which, if you’re into that sort of thing, is super sexy. Both attributes befit the role. She’s authentic as it gets.

I’ll be having a few strong BDSM based dreams in my future, that’s for sure.

Kick-Ass 2: Balls to the Wall sees the return of Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Chloë Grace Moretz, Nicolas CageChristopher and Mintz-Plasse. Fresh faces include John Leguizamo, Donald Faison, Robert Emms, Morris Chestnut, Lindy Booth and Jim Carrey. It will hit theaters June 28th, 2013.

The more I hear about the upcoming Kick-Ass 2: Balls to the Wall, the bigger nerd boner I get.  Though the movie is still in the pre-production phase and dealing with elements such as casting, each bit of news that comes out signals that the movie is still on track and lessens the chances that it will end up in production limbo.

Already we know that Aaron Johnson (Kick-Ass), Chloe Grace Moretz (Hit-Girl) and Christopher Mintz-Plasse (Red Mist) are coming back.  The question is, who else will they be bringing to the story to step up the pace?

The latest scoop concerns just such an addition.  It appears that the character of Mother Russia will be making an appearance, as a casting call has gone out to find the right giant-sized lady for the role.

For those that have never met Mother Russia, she’s an ex-KGB agent of towering height and massive breasts (see above picture for reference).  She’s a well-trained killer who’s more than a match for Kick-Ass and his allies, working for Red Mist as one of his thugs.

Of course, the real challenge is going to be finding someone to fill Mother Russia’s rather large shoes (and bra).  Tall actresses are not exactly a commodity in Hollywood due to their general prejudice against bigger women in film, particularly ones that are rippling with muscles.

Personally, I’m thinking they should tap the MMA franchises to find a good fit for the role.  Any Nerdreaders out there have some suggestions on who might best work as Mother Russia without having to jack-up on steroids and wear platform shoes?
