Three New Looks at 'Kick-Ass 2' Including a First Look at Hit Girl

Jim Carrey and Aaron Johnson in Kick-Ass 2

Empire Magazine's upcoming issue features several new pictures from some of 2013's most anticipated movies and today we have some high-quality scans of some images from Kick-Ass 2 featuring Aaron Taylor-Johnson as Kick-Ass, Jim Carrey as Colonel Stars and Stripes and a first look at Chloe Moretz as Hit Girl, though, in all honesty she doesn't look all that different.

Personally, Kick-Ass was only decent. My favorite part of the whole thing was Moretz as the young ass-kicker, but the rest of the story I found rather uninteresting.

Kick-Ass 2 hits theaters on June 28 and I would think Universal would have a trailer for us rather soon. Here's the film's synopsis followed by two looks at Moretz:

Kick-Ass, Hit Girl and Red Mist return for the follow-up to 2010's irreverent global hit: Kick-Ass 2. After Kick-Ass' (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) insane bravery inspires a new wave of self-made masked crusaders, led by the badass Colonel Stars and Stripes (Jim Carrey), our hero joins them on patrol. When these amateur superheroes are hunted down by Red Mist (Christopher Mintz-Plasse)--reborn as The Mother F%&*^r--only the blade-wielding Hit Girl (Chloe Grace Moretz) can prevent their annihilation.

When we last saw junior assassin Hit Girl and young vigilante Kick-Ass, they were trying to live as normal teenagers Mindy and Dave. With graduation looming and uncertain what to do, Dave decides to start the world's first superhero team with Mindy. Unfortunately, when Mindy is busted for sneaking out as Hit Girl, she’s forced to retire--leaving her to navigate the terrifying world of high-school mean girls on her own. With no one left to turn to, Dave joins forces with Justice Forever, run by a born-again ex-mobster named Colonel Stars and Stripes.

Just as they start to make a real difference on the streets, the world's first super villain, The Mother F%&*^r, assembles his own evil league and puts a plan in motion to make Kick-Ass and Hit Girl pay for what they did to his dad. But there’s only one problem with his scheme: If you mess with one member of Justice Forever, you mess with them all.

    Hit girl looks very different than she did in the first movie. Of course, she's older now, so it was kind of expected.

    Hey Brad, are you excited about this movie despite the fact that you thought the first one was only decent?

    I love Kick-Ass...I love that it's so gleefully, unapologetically un-pc and also quite a subversive commentary on the whole comic book fanboy notion. That being said, I've heard the sequel isn't nearly as good, and without Vaughn involved the movie probably won't be either. But even though it probably won't be any good, I can't help but look forward to it a little.

      I always found Kick-ass a bit toothless personally, taking easy shots at the genre that have been made time and again. Then again, I also find Vaughn to be a weak filmmaker, so maybe that is what bugged me.
