Back in September we were able to share with you the first images of Kick-Ass 2. They included the initial photos of Kick-Ass (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) and Colonel Stars and Stripes (Jim Carrey) as well as Night Bitch (Lindy Booth) and Insect-Man (Robert Emms). Missing though was fan-favorite Hit-Girl (Chloe Grace Moretz).
With the end of January quickly approaching, we’re happy to finally be able to share with you a few more photos from the set and with a focus clearly on Hit-Girl! Empire Magazine has 2 shots of Hit-Girl, one for promotional material and one showing off her outfit in full. We also have a shot of what may just be part of the “Justice Forever” headquarters where the new super-hero team led by Colonel Stars and Stripes.
Will the new team though be enough to stop the returning villain known as Red Mist from the first film? With him now going by the name “The Motherf*%&er“, you can tell he’s surely going to up the ante or just live out a sociopath’s fantasy. One of the two. Either way it’ll be damn entertaining for all of us if it’s even half as good as the first movie!
Kick-Ass 2 Synopsis:
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 F%&*^r—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 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.
