Kick-Ass was one of the most surprising comic-book adaptations of recent years. I expected very little, but got a violent, funny, action packed origin story in a way that is not annoying. The film also highlighted Chloe Grace Moretz as a total badass and future babe ( I SAID FUTURE! ), so when they announced the sequel has been greenlit, despite my trepidation with the actual plot, I think it can be cool. It’s already got a lot going for it in light of bringing all the original cast back, but the signings of resident Black-movie boyfriend Morris Chestnutt, John Leguizamo, and Donald Faison have added credence to my thinking it’s going to be good.
Additionally, in what could be super awesome, or super terrible, Jim Carrey has signed on to play a hero Colonel Stars. I feel like Jim Carreys best days are behind him, but maybe this could be a reminder of what an awesomely fun guy he used to be before he got all old and weird.
