So the first Kick-Ass movie was lots of fun. Adapted from the comic book of the same name, it provided a nice alternative to the usual DC & Marvel heroics we’d gotten used to.
Three years on and Kick-Ass 2 has released its first trailer, showing us a little of what to expect in the sequel. Seemingly maintaining the barmy action & suits and keeping the foul-mouthed dialogue meter running, Kick-Ass 2 does look good even though it may prove to be just a tad too similar to the original. I hope I’m wrong though and that this blows the first one away.
Due for release sometime this summer, the IMDb has this to say: The costumed high-school hero Kick-Ass joins with a group of normal citizens who have been inspired to fight crime in costume. Meanwhile, the Red Mist plots an act of revenge that will affect everyone Kick-Ass knows.
