'Kick-Ass 2: Balls to the Wall' plot details revealed
Christopher Mintz-Plasse's Red Mist returns with a new name
Kick-Ass, Hit Girl and Red Mist are ready for more dark humor and over-the-top violence in "Kick-Ass 2: Balls to the Wall," and Lionsgate has just revealed some of the key plot details for the follow-up to 2010's cult hit.
After hiding out as civilians, Kick-Ass' (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) and Hit Girl (Chloë Grace Moretz) find themselves hunted down by Red Mist (Christopher Mintz-Plasse), who has rechristened himself The Mother F*cker, and acts as the city's first costumed super-villain.
Although we can expect plenty of bone-crunching violence and foul-mouthed shenanigans, Taylor-Johnson says it will be toned down from the Mark Millar-John Romita Jr. comic book series on which it's based.
Take a look at the costumed look of Johnson and newcomer Donald Faison was revealed earlier by the studio.
While the original's director Matthew Vaughn ("X-Men: First Class") is merely producing this time, he's handed the reins to "Never Back Down" helmer Jeff Wadlow.
"Kick-Ass 2: Balls to the Wall" opens June 28, 2013.
