A new teaser image released for Kick Ass 3 has hit the web, and it seems we may be getting the Mark Milla finale sooner than expected. The teaser reveals that the final storyline for “Kick Ass” will launch in May from Millar and Romita Jr. Not surprisingly, this is just one month before the release of the Kick Ass 2 film. READ MORE
While we expect that some of the more brutal scenes (i.e. rape) will be taken out of the sequel, the official plot blub, released yesterday, sounds pretty damn faithful to the comic.
“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.
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.” READ MORE
Jeff Wadlow, director of Kick-Ass 2: Balls to the Wall, hinted that Jim Carrey has officially joined the cast for the upcoming sequel. Carey said he was a fan of the first film and since then has been linked to playing the role of Colonel Stars. Wadlow tweeted, “6 days till we start shooting… and we officially have our Colonel. Alrighty f’n then! @ChloeGMoretz @MintzPlasse @donald_faison #kickass2.” Sounds like Carrey is onboard.
Christopher Mintz-Plasse responded to the tweet asking who got the part to which Mark Millar wrote, “Clue – he lives with 200 raccoons and parrots, owns the mask of Loki and named by Spielberg as a genius.”
All the stars of the original film are set to be on board with the addition of Lyndsy Fonseca, Yancy Butler, Donald Faison, John Leguizamo, Lindy Booth and Andy Nyman. Kick-Ass 2 is set for release on June 28, 2013. READ MORE
I may be dead tired, and my feet might be bleeding from what was C2E2, but that isn’t stopping me from keeping you loyal readers up to date on all the biggest news in the comic book world right now. Inside you can get all the scoop on the biggest little news stories going right now such as Mike Mignola’s thoughts on a third ‘HELLBOY’ film, the disappointing opening weekend for ‘KICK-ASS’, and the dream-team crossover of ’30 DAYS OF NIGHT’ and ‘THE X-FILES’. Read on for all the news.
Kick Ass the movie comes out this Friday in theaters, so why not release a crime fighting bloody as hell game to go with it? You’ll be able to get the game on the Playstation Network April 29th, and on the portable Apple devices April 17th. The game will cost $14.99 on the PSN, and $2.99 on the Apple appliances.
In the game you will be able to play as Kick Ass, Hit Girl, and Big Daddy. I’m not sure why they left Red Mist out, laziness? The game is 3rd person, will feature 12 story missions, and 2 bonus rounds, and as you can tell by the video is full of gore. The game only has local co-op multiplayer (cough shitty cough). In a game like this, where you have 4 main characters, there should be 4 player co-op online multiplayer. But for some reason they left out a main character, and screwed you on online multiplayer. Past the break for screens. READ MORE
