All right folks, it’s time to get serious. We’re only 7 weeks away from the premiere of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and while JJ Abrams and his team remained groin-grabbingly tight-lipped on plot details, that hasn’t stopped fans of all kinds from making their guesses as to what might happen in Episode VII. Most fans, though, don’t have their own late-night talk show on which to spout their rhetoric; fortunately for us, Stephen Colbert does.
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.

People seriously have too much time on their hands, and this dramatic tift between Smith and the Westboro Baptist Church . Seeing as the world doesn’t have too much to picket about at the moment, the Westboro Baptist Church sets their sights on Kevin Smith’s new film ‘Red State’, calling him “a God-hating clown”.
If you’ve been living under a rock, Kevin Smith’s film ‘Red State’ is centered in Middle America. The film’s plot centers around a group of teens who receive an online invitation for, but soon encounter that the invitation is a sinister plot by fanatical church members whose member kill “sinners”.
Some have said that the film bares a resemblance to the fanatical Westboro Church, and the only comment from the church’s spokesperson is, “God hates fags, God hates fag enablers, therefore God hates Kevin Smith.” Kevin Smith, in a true show of smart-ass awesomness, told TMZ, “”Well Jesus told ME he loved ‘Red State.’ He said it makes up for ‘Cop Out.’ He also said neither He nor His Heavenly Father have any affiliation with the Westboro Baptist Church.”
This isn’t the first time that this church have protested everything on this god-given earth. During this slump of controversial things to be ticked off about, the group has managed to immerse itself into public’s eye once more.
Of course, Kevin Smith uses this controversy to his advantage seeing as the film is set to release a month from now. If you want to check out Kevin Smith’s interview with TMZ on ‘Red State’, and an update on his career ventures ,click here.
A short synopsis that could very well be the plot of Zack Snyder‘s Superman: Man of Steel has been leaked online by Baseline Studio System. For the time being consider this only rumor, but here’s what they’ve posted,
A young reporter named Clark Kent roams the world covering various news stories. When he is compelled to use his secret powers to intervene in a crisis in West Africa, he returns to Smallville to learn more about his origins and the hero he was born to be.
If you know your Superman you will notice this is basically the plot of Superman: Birthright (pictured above), which was long rumored to be an influence on this upcoming film. Meaning this might just be an old rumor somehow finding it’s way back in the headlines. It’s unusual a plot summary would be released now while Snyder isn’t allowing actors copies of the script and is forcing them to read it in a private, locked room. But then again who knows, maybe they simply like to tease and torture us and make us crazy with leaked possibilities. What dicks.
Bleeding Cool is confidant in the source though, writing,
It looks to me like Warner Bros. registered some details of the film, most likely with casting services who fed it to Baseline, somehow, but have since decided to play coy. I’d be prepared to make a reasonable sized bet on the above being the film’s story.
I don’t think it’s locked, I just like the odds. A lot.
I hope this does become the basic outline for the movie. While I’m not super familiar with Birthright it sounds to me like an excellent plot for an origin story that doesn’t want to bore us with the same origin story. We’ve already seen a young Kal-El found and raised by the Kent’s in Smallville, move to Metropolis, become a reporter for The Daily Planet, fall in love with Lois Lane and seek his true destiny as Superman. Snooze. And while Birthright may still include much of what we’ll recognize as Superman’s origin, I like the idea of starting with him already a man grown coming to terms with his calling.
Think this is the likely plot for Superman: Man of Steel? Or are we going to see an incomprehensible Zack Snyder vision of Smallville?
