On August 16, “Kick Ass 2” fans will have the opportunity to see series creators Mark Millar and John Romita Jr. fight one another as a superhero and super villain, respectively. IFC has posted photos of Millar and Romita Jr’s costumed identities in the upcoming film with Millar as a member of Kick-Ass’ Justice Forever and Romita Jr. as one of The Motherfucker’s Toxic Mega-Cunts.
“They put us in the fight scene and I was supposed to beat the snot out of Mark in the battle scene, and then they were going to do close-ups of us fighting, and Mark couldn’t make it,” Romita Jr. told IFC. “So we’re in the fight scene, but it’s really difficult to see us. The director said when we do the third one, he said, ‘I’ll get you all the close-up.’ The photos of me in costume are pretty funny. They’re cringe-worthy, but since I have no pride, I don’t mind people finding out about them.”
Directed by Jeff Wadlow, “Kick-Ass 2” continues the journey of Kick-Ass as a new trend of costumed heroes sweeps the city and stars Aaron Johnson as Kick-Ass, Chloe Grace Moretz as Hit Girl, Christopher Mintz-Plasse as The Motherfucker and Jim Carrey as Colonel Stars and Stripes.
