With our first looks at Doctor Gravity and a number of other Justice Forever members out of the way, things have been emerging into quite the costume-filled affair on the set of Kick-Ass 2. Aaron Johnson has been seen in full costume as the titular hero, while we’ve at least seen Chloe Moretz’s stunt double in full Hit-Girl gear as we know that a good portion of the film will tackle the heroine and her new role in high school. But there is also the pressing matter of Christopher Mintz-Plasse emerging as a new villain the duo will have to face off against as well. Today, we get our first glimpse of that antagonist as a new set photo has shown what we can expect from Plasse while it seems our two heroes may make a better team than some would like to realize.
First up, we have a look at Christopher Mintz-Plasse in costume as “The Motherf–ker”. Alone instead of with Mother Russia and henchmen, we’re left to wonder whether or not this is simply an introduction into the new villain’s world of crime. Director Jeff Wadlow revealed last night on Twitter that they would be filming a scene in which The Motherf–ker robbed a convenience store. If everything went off according to plan is a question that will likely have to wait until the finished product hits theaters.
But with Aaron Johnson and Chloe Moretz back on set, we’re received a few looks at both actors in character and costume for different scenes that certainly have had the message that both fan-favorite roles are back. But, what exactly do we make of these latest shots? Shown a little bruised after what is assumed to be an action scene, Hit-Girl drops off Kick-Ass on her sweet new ride…and they kiss?! Perhaps there is some much needed context here, but it’s certainly an interesting development for both characters (especially considering last time we left off, Dave had a girlfriend).
Co-starring Clark Duke, Jim Carrey, Morris Chestnut, John Leguizamo, Donald Faison, Lindy Booth and more, Kick-Ass 2 is scheduled to hit theaters on June 28th, 2013.
