First Official Look At Jim Carrey & Aaron Taylor-Johnson In 'Kick-Ass 2'

The Playlist By Joe Cunningham | The Playlist January 21, 2013 at 1:43PM

It seemed like it was talked about forever and destined never to be made, but that all changed last year, and now we’re mere months away from “Kick-Ass 2” hitting theaters. Aaron Taylor-Johnson returns as the eponymous not-so-super superhero, as well as Chloe Moretz and Christopher Mintz-Plasse (whose Red Mist has upgraded to become The Mother Fucker). Matthew Vaughn has been replaced in the director’s chair by “Never Back Down” helmer Jeff Wadlow, while the latest additions to the cast include Donald Faison, Lindy Booth, John Leguizamo and newcomer Olga Kurkulina as the indomitable Mother Russia.

It seemed like it was talked about forever and destined never to be made, but that all changed last year, and now we’re mere months away from “Kick-Ass 2” hitting theaters. Aaron Taylor-Johnson returns as the eponymous not-so-super superhero, as well as Chloe Moretz and Christopher Mintz-Plasse (whose Red Mist has upgraded to become The Mother Fucker). Matthew Vaughn has been replaced in the director’s chair by “Never Back Down” helmer Jeff Wadlow, while the latest additions to the cast include Donald Faison, Lindy Booth, John Leguizamo and newcomer Olga Kurkulina as the indomitable Mother Russia.

Arguably the biggest addition though is Jim Carrey, whose casting came as somewhat of a surprise despite his vocal support of Vaughn’s first movie. Carrey stars as Colonel Stars, who in Mark Millar’s comic is an ex-mafia member turned vigilante who forms Justice Forever – this universe’s answer to the Justice League or The Avengers. Well, the first official image for the movie has now dropped and unsurprisingly it features their new biggest star (unless Nic Cage does return, that is) having a chat with Taylor-Johnson’s Kick Ass in one of the seedier areas of Toronto.

Pictured alongside Carrey is Colonel Stars’ trusty companion Sophia, and we’d imagine the scene represented here is the one in which Colonel Stars attempts to recruit Kick Ass for Justice Forever. The movie will see Kick-Ass and Justice Forever doing battle with The Mother Fucker and his own band of super-villains, The Toxic Mega-Cunts, in a story that surely has to be toned down from just how insane it gets in the comics. Hopefully Wadlow can reign in Millar just as Vaughn did before him, because if he does, the potential is here for another hugely enjoyable subversion (and celebration) of the genre. [ComingSoon]
