ShootStabSwear: Kick-Ass 2 (SDCC ’13 Extended Red Band Trailer)

Kick-Ass 2  was way, way darker & messed up than the original Kick-Ass mini-series was.  If you haven’t read it before and you want to pick it up prior to the movie, get ready to be…disturbed.

It’ll be interesting to see how closely they follow the Kick-Ass 2 comic, which was actually astoundingly brutal.

I’m wary of this though  as Mark Millar’s properties have a history of being poorly translated to film.

Bonus: Did you spot Jim Carrey before his name popped up in the credits?

Do you have ANY idea how badly I wanted this to be a reality when I was 8?  It’s probably better for everyone that it wasn’t.


I wasn’t thrilled with the first Kick-Ass (the ending was one of the most ludicrous things I’ve ever seen) but maybe the sequel will be incredible? If nothing else, I think the Jim Carrey casting was a smart move. By the way, who read Kick-Ass 2? It definitely seemed like Millar was going strictly for shock value this time.  Wonder how some of the more brutal aspects of the series will be translated to the film.
