I'd love to have titled this post "Watch Morris Chestnut, Donald Faison, Daniel Kaluuya and Tanya Fear In First Trailer For Kick-Ass 2," but I can't, because none of them is in it, even though they are all in the film!
Ah well... so it goes...
Here's the first trailer (a red-band trailer) for this summer's Kick-Ass 2, which sees the return of Aaron Johnson, Chloe Moretz and Christopher Mintz-Plasse in starring roles, joined by Jim Carrey and others.
As far as black actors in the film are concerned, Kaluuya (above-left) signed up to play a character named Black Death, said to be part of the gang of villains led by The Mother F*cker (formerly Red Mist), played by Christopher Mintz-Plasse. And another black British actor in Tanya Fear (above-right), in her first feature film role, is playing a character named Harlow, described as one of the mean girls. Morris Chestnut of course plays the guardian for the character played by Chloe Moretz (Hit Girl), and Donald Faison is Doctor Gravity in the sequel to 2010's Kick-Ass.
Jeff Wadlow directed the film, while Matthew Vaughn, who directed the 2010 original, is serving as producer on the sequel.
Kick-Ass 2 is scheduled for a summer 2013 release.
Here's the trailer:
