Luke Cage History: From Hero for Hire to Hollywood
TV, Comic Books
New photos have surfaced from the Toronto set of director Jeff Wadlow’s Kick-Ass 2 showcasing returning star Aaron Johnson with some of the members of the crime-fighting team Justice Forever — including our first look at Jim Carrey as Colonel Stars, an ex-Mafia member turned vigilante who founds the group with his brother Lieutenant Stripes. In addition, Newscom (via Geek Tyrant) provides glimpses of Lindy Booth (Dawn of the Dead) as Night Bitch and Robert Emms (War Horse) as Insect Man.
The Sun got its own quality shots of Carrey as the Colonel, as well as Chloe Moretz in her full Hit-Girl costume.
That’s not all, though, as The Daily Mail posted snaps of two different scenes, one of Moretz in her street clothes and Christopher Mintz-Plasse — formerly The Red Mist, now known as Motherfucker — in his new villain costume. You can even see John Leguizamo, who plays a bodyguard.
Want even more Kick-Ass 2 goodness? Do yourself a favor, and follow Jeff Wadlow on Twitter. Since filming started a few weeks back, he’s been sending out photos of the actors in and out of costume for all to see, including Donald Faison as Doc G.
The sequel picks up months after the 2010 action-comedy based on the Mark Millar/John Romita Jr. comic, as teenager-turned-vigilante Kick-Ass hooks up with fellow heroes Justice Forever only to discover that Mintz-Plasse’s Motherfucker is teaming up with various villains. Moretz and Yancy Butler are set to return along with new additions Leguizamo, Faison, Andy Nyman and Morris Chestnut. The film opens June 28, 2013.
