Well, get out the pencil and eraser, because some dates are changing, and the biggest one of them all means you'll have to wait even longer for the finale of Peter Jackson's return to Middle Earth.

It may seem like the studios have forgotten they have some summer tentpoles to market, but just bear in a mind a few things. We're still in the midst of the awards season and the Sundance Film Festival just wrapped, so executives and marketing departments are temporarily preoccupied. Also, the Super Bowl is next weekend, and you can bet that it will be the launching pad for a half dozen major campaigns, so just sit tight. Until then, a few more images have arrived to tide you over.

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.

We can’t figure out whether to be excited or not about “Kick Ass 2: Balls to the Wall.” Sure the first film was all kinds of fun, and some of the new casting additions are pretty exciting -- most notably Jim Carrey. But on the other hand, there’s no Matthew Vaughn this time, and by all accounts Mark Millar’s comic wasn’t that great this time and it sounds as if it was going to need a lot of changes made to it before it could work on the big screen.

First up in a bit of a casting round-up today is news that Aussie actress Isabel Lucas (“Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen,” and maybe Terrence Malick’s “Knight of Cups” if she makes the final cut) has signed up for “Careful What You Wish For.” The film will follow a self-conscious high school student who gets more than he bargained for when he starts an affair with the wife of a businessman (the role we’re assuming Lucas has taken), and discovers a devastating secret after a serious crime rocks their small town. Directed by Elizabeth Allen (“Aquamarine,” “Ramona and Beezus”), the film is described as a “sexy thriller reminiscent of “Basic Instinct,”” but we’d be surprised if Lucas lays herself quite as bare as Sharon Stone did.

Just a couple of weeks ago it was looking unlikely that Jim Carrey, sought to play Colonel Stars, a member of a Justice League-like band of real-life superheroes in "KickA-Ass 2: Balls to the Walls," would actually make an appearance in the high profile sequel. But hey, it looks like enough strings were pulled, favors promised, and back-end points awarded, because Carrey is indeed set to co-star in the follow-up to the jazzy deconstructionist comic book movie.

As the saying goes, even a broken clock is right twice a day and after all of Mark Millar’s endless bullshitting, “Kick-Ass 2” is actually happening. With most of the original cast set to return -- Aaron Johnson, Chloe Moretz and Christopher Mintz-Plasse -- the Jeff Wadlow-helmed sequel has been busy adding actors to the ensemble and it now has a new villain in the form of Andy Nyman as The Tumour.

So it was only yesterday that we were discussing the possibility of Jim Carrey joining the sequel to 2010’s “Kick-Ass” – a film the comedian is reportedly a big fan of. He would be joining a cast that has Aaron Johnson, Chloë Moretz, Christopher Mintz-Plasse and maybe even Nicolas Cage all returning, as well as a handful of new additions including Donald Faison and Morris Chestnut. But even yesterday it looked like a long shot, and despite Carrey’s apparent love of Matthew Vaughn’s film, The Hollywood Reporter is saying that their sources think the chances of Carrey taking the role of Colonel Stars (a mobster-turned-fundamentalist-Christian-turned-superhero-recruiter) are slim -- presumably the smaller budget of the sequel to the underperfoming original can't quite afford him.

Aaron Johnson’s Kick-Ass is returning to the big screen for a second outing, and new director Jeff Wadlow looks to be gathering a head of steam in terms of casting the sequel to Matthew Vaughn’s alternative superhero movie. Johnson, Chloe Moretz, Christopher Mintz-Plasse and even Nicolas Cage (in a rumoured cameo role) all look set to return for “Kick Ass 2: Balls to the Wall,” and the task of filling the huge amount of supporting roles from Mark Millar’s twisted comic book sequel is now well underway.
