The much anticipated sequel to Kick-Ass has arrived in theaters, and we want to know what you think! 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 less than a month before Kick-Ass 2 hits theaters a larger trailer was due out for SDCC. Most of the cast returns and we’re adding Jim Carrey and John Leguizamo to the cast. The trailer is after the jump and do be careful as it does become a bit NSFW when the villain shows up.

We at Major Spoilers try to keep you up-to-date with the latest news in pop culture, but there are times when a perfect storm of everything else in our lives make it so we can’t update as much as we want, leading to missed stories.

You’ve been warned.
Universal has released a high-res image of Jim Carrey in his Colonel Stars and Stripes get-up from the upcoming movie adaptation of Kick-Ass 2 by Mark Millar and John Romita, Jr.
Press Release From the feature film based on Mark Millar and John Romita Jr.’s Kick-Ass, Hit-Girl is a lethal martial artist and weapons expert; she has been trained to fight crime practically since her childhood. In the film adaptation, Mindy is played by Chloë Moretz, for which this statue is modeled after. Standing 9 ½ inches tall to the tip of her gun and measuring 4.5″ W x 4.5″ D, Hit-Girl has been sculpted and painted in meticulous detail by Joy & Tom Studios. The Hit-Girl School Girl Statue is being offered for an incredibly introductory price of only $279.99
Or – “She Looks Really Weird On That Cover, Doesn’t She?” I’ve been a fan of John Romita Jr. since his run on Spider-Man decades ago, and have appreciated Mark Millar’s work since the early 90’s. When they work together, though, I find my opinion of their work to be all over the place. Can Hit-Girl get past the novelty value of a foul-mouthed 12 year old murderess? Your Major Spoilers review awaits!
