Jeff Wadlow‘s Kick-Ass 2 hits theaters on August 16th, but you don’t have to wait that long to see some crazy balls-to-the-wall action. I was browsing the director’s Vimeo page today when I stumbled upon this brand new clip from the film.
Check out the clip here below!
The video lasts just a little over two minutes and features an epic showdown between Kick-Ass (Aaron Taylor-Johnson), Hit-Girl (Chloe Grace Moretz), and an army of homegrown heroes and Red Mist (Christopher Mintz-Plasse), who has been reborn as The Mother Fucker.
The battle goes down at The Mother Fucker’s Evil Lair, and there’s plenty of violent action as heroes square off against a legion of villains. The video is titled “Evil Lair entrance v8,” which tells me this might not be a finished sequence, and though it appears to be completed, there could still be some audio mixing or color correction to be done.
I’m looking forward to the showdown between Hit-Girl and Mother Russia (played by Olga Kurkulina), but my favorite line from this sequence has to be, “Avengers Assemble, asshole!”
Inspired by Kick-Ass (Aaron Taylor-Johnson), other masked heroes appear. One such, Colonel Stars and Stripes (Jim Carrey), forms a team and Kick-Ass joins them on patrol, while Hit Girl (Chloe Grace Moretz) “retires”, and tries to have a normal life. Meanwhile Red Mist (Christopher Mintz-Plasse) — reborn as The Mother Fucker — returns to play supervillain with his army, and take out his revenge on Kick-Ass.
