I opened up my issue of Entertainment Weekly focusing on the Oscar race, and got a nice surprise. In the First Look section of the mag is the first image from Kick-Ass 2. In the image are Jim Carrey playing Colonel Stars and Stripes and Aaron Taylor-Johnson playing Kick-Ass. Director Jeff Wadlow stepped in to replace director Matthew Vaughn who directed the first film. Chloe Grace Moretz is back as well, but her Mindy character is trying to become a normal teenager, not Hit Girl.
Other actors in the film include Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Lyndsy Fonseca, John Leguizamo, Donald Faison, Lindy Booth, Yancy Butler, and Clark Duke.
Kick-Ass 2 is in theatres June 28, 2013.
Forgive the image quality. I have no scanner and the image is on the fold of the magazine as well.
