First official image from Kick Ass 2: Balls to the Wall, featuring Jim Carrey and Aaron Taylor-Johnson

01.21.2013

KICK-ASS 2: BALLS TO THE WALL wrapped a few months ago and we haven't heard or seen much since.  Probably the biggest gem of news came in the form of seeing Jim Carrey on set as Colonel Stars and Stripes, which will likely be a darker departure for the funnyman actor, but still with a bit of comedic edge.  Carrey looks perfect as the leader of Justice Forever, a make-shift hero group (think a street-level Justice League, minus the powers) that recruits the titular Kick Ass (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) into their ranks.  Now, we have an official image from the film, taken directly from the set pics we reported on last year, which has the first meeting between Colonel Stars and Stripes and Kick Ass.

Have a look:

I had a blast with the first KICK ASS and as a fan of the comics I'm looking forward to seeing them bring the next chapter to the big screen.  If it's anything like the comic, it will be ten times more violent and shocking and with a host of new characters to contend with.  The Jeff Wadlow-directed sequel also sees the return of Hit Girl, once again played by Chloe Moretz, arguably the most popular character in the series (certainly the most bad ass).  The film also stars returning castmembers Lyndsy Fonseca, Clark Duke, Morris Chestnut, and Yancy Butler, along with newcomers John Leguizamo, Donald Faison, and Lindy Booth.

KICK ASS 2: BALLS TO THE WALL opens on June 28, 2013.

is Morris Chestnut a returning cast member? I don't remember him from the first flick. And where is Mintz-Plasse?

Carrey is gonna steal the show. I can feel it.

Nice product placement.

So glad Jim Carrey is in this. Hope he's as awesome as Cage was.

Minor spoilers

I liked the first one, despite a few thing that could have made it from the comics to the screen (the explanation of the guy jumping from a building in the begining of the film, for instance).
What bothers me, though, is that the time laps between the two chapters is supposed to be a few month, while, in the film, it has, obviously been years (the main characters have grown up !)... Part of the interest of this chapter 2 was the heroes trying to go back to 'normal' life before being pulled

And I wonder how they will do some of the REALLY PESSIMISTIC events that the heroes go through...

Christopher Mintz-Plasse

I am somewhat surprised to not see Mintz-Plasse listed among the cast, considering he is a returning cast member who had a big role in the first film and will have a larger one as a villain in this one. Also, did I miss something, or did they reinstate the subtitle "Balls to the Wall"? I thought it was changed to just Kick-Ass 2. Still excited to see this film. Loved the original.

I thought it was funny too. Got this all American Canadian (carey) in Toronto. I wonder if that scene is supposed to be in the States or in Canada? If it's the U.S., hope they notice the Toronto sign. Zanzibar made it in The Incredible Hulk too so...whatevs. Either way, looking forward to this flick.

Definitely Kick-ass, because he is vulnerable, which means he's capable. But it's hard to say which. Hit girl is so awesome.
