With filming of Jeff Wadlow’s ‘Kick-Ass 2’ now in production, stills from the location shoot have been popping up over the internet all weekend long. The cast and crew are currently in Toronto where the area has been transformed to look like the streets of New York and we have the first looks of Jim Carrey as Colonel Stars and his Justice Forever team, Night Bitch (Lindy Booth), Kick-Ass (Aaron Johnson), Insect-Man (Robert Emms), the husband and wife team Remembering Tommy and, of course, Sofia, the testicle eating dog.
While the original film, ‘Kick-Ass’, wasn’t a phenomenal hit, it did have a very loyal and cult following and with the rise of interest in superhero films now-a-days, ‘Kick-Ass 2’ has the potential to do very well in the box office.
The addition of Carrey as Colonel Stars will do much to achieve that goal for the film. Fans of the comic series will tell you that Colonel Stars was inspired by Kick-Ass and together they formed the Justice Forever team to set out and clean the city as the DIY superheroes. From the looks of the images, it seems that the production crew has done an outstanding job recreating the images taken from the comics.
Also included below are two videos that were taken during filming. While the dialog can’t be heard, the footage is pretty cool for any ‘Kick-Ass’ fan. The first is what looks like the Justice Forever team patrolling the streets and the second is a convenience store robber attempted by Mother F*cker (Christopher Mintz-Plasse).
So what do you think of the look of the movie so far and of the Justice Forever team?
