Earlier this week saw the release of the brilliant red-band trailer and first official poster for Jeff Wadlow’s sequel, Kick-Ass 2. Now comes the revealing of a collection of character posters.
Naturally we see Kick-Ass Aaron Taylor-Johnson), Hit Girl (Chloe Moretz) and the newly named The Mother Fucker (Christopher Mintz-Plasse), but we also get a peak at other characters including Night Bitch (Lindy Booth), Mother Russia (Olga Kurkulina) and Black Death (Daniel Kaluuya). Oddly there is no Colonel Stars and Stripes (Jim Carrey) in sight. The posters come courtesy of Cine1
Kick-Ass 2 is directed by Jeff Wadlow and written by Wadlow, Mark Millar and John S. Romita Jr. Matthew Vaughn returns to produce. The cast see’s Chloe Grace Moretz, Christopher Mintz-Plasse and Aaron Taylor-Johnson return, and they will be joined by Jim Carrey, Lyndsy Fonseca, John Leguizamo, Donald Faison, Morris Chestnut, Yancy Butler, Clark Duke and Lindy Booth.
Kick-Ass, Hit Girl and Red Mist return for the follow-up to 2010’s irreverent global hit: Kick-Ass 2. After Kick-Ass’ (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) insane bravery inspires a new wave of self-made masked crusaders, led by the badass Colonel Stars and Stripes (Jim Carrey), our hero joins them on patrol. When these amateur superheroes are hunted down by Red Mist (Christopher Mintz-Plasse)—reborn as The Mother Fucker—only the blade-wielding Hit Girl (Chloe Grace Moretz) can prevent their annihilation. 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 Fucker, 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.
