Poster, New Images From Kick-Ass 2

What we have here is the first poster from Kick-Ass 2, along with a bunch of images from the film, this summer’s follow-up to 2010’s surprise hit comic book adaptation.

The producers got all the original cast back — including Chloe Grace Moretz, who is on the verge of blowing up any day now, as more and more people realize what an amazing little acting fireball she is. If she isn’t under contract for another sequel, good luck getting her back!

I don’t know about you, but I loved Matthew Vaughn‘s adaptation of Mark Millar‘s gritty comic book, and I’m really looking forward to the return of these characters.

Red-Band Trailer for Kick-Ass 2… Kicks Ass!

Leave it to Kick-Ass 2 to make an impression and leave a mark — its first trailer is a red-band clip full of foul language and ultraviolence. What’s not to love?

Check out the brutal beat-downs and NSFW foulest of language here:

It seems pretty clear from this clip that new director Jeff Wadlow is not taking the franchise in a wildly different direction after taking over for Matthew Vaughn, and the surviving original cast are all back, including Aaron Taylor-Johnson as Kick-Ass, Chloë  Grace Moretz as Hit Girl, Lyndsy Fonseca as Katie and Chistopher Mintz-Plasse as the Red Mist Motherf—er.  Jim Carrey leads the new cast, playing Colonel Stars and Stripes.
