Though recent events have lead star Jim Carrey to step back from ‘Kick-Ass 2’ and it’s promotion, his character Colonel Stars and Stripes, along with Kick-Ass, Hit-Girl, and the rest of Justice Forever are looking for some new recruits to join the fight.
On the new website wearejusticeforever.com, the leader of the superhero collective gives a passionate plea for new members to join Justice Forever in order to defeat The Mother F***er and his own legion of doom known as the Toxic Mega-C*nts. Check out the video below to see what Kick-Ass has to say about the cause:
Not only does the site contain the first bit of viral marketing for Jeff Wadlow’s upcoming film, but there are also a series of challenges that a potential member can complete in order to win prizes such as “swag, cash, and a trip to San Diego to party with the ‘Kick-Ass’ cast during Comic-Con”.
In a world with no super powers, would you take up arms and join Justice Forever? Or are you simply enticed by the trip to this year’s SDCC? Either way, share your thoughts in the comments below.
For more information on the movie, here’s the official synopsis:
After Kick-Ass’ 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—reborn as The Mother F%&*^r—only the blade-wielding Hit Girl 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.
‘Kick-Ass 2’ starring Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Chloe Grace Moretz, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Clark Duke, Donald Faison, John Leguizamo, and Jim Carrey hits theaters on August 16, 2013.
