Universal has released a new behind-the-scenes featurette for Kick-Ass 2. The featurette is filled with cast and crew interviews (minus Jim Carrey) and sets the stage for the last remaining sequel of the summer. This time around Jeff Wadlow is in the director’s chair and the film’s first director Matthew Vaughn serves as a producer.
The sequel centers around Aaron Taylor-Johnson’s Kick-Ass and Chloe Grace Moretz’s Hit Girl inspiring a new wave of masked superheroes that join in their fight against evil. On the flipside, Christopher Mintz-Plasse has now become a supervillain named The Mother Fucker and is recruiting his own masked evil league.
The supporting cast includes Morris Chestnut, John Leguizamo, Donald Faison, and Jim Carrey.
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 (Chloë Grace Moretz) can prevent their annihilation. 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. 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.
