As new set photos rose from Kick-Ass 2, it was great to see that main stars Aaron Johnson and Chloe Moretz were finally on set to portray their characters adored by fans. Though we saw an indirect photo of Moretz in her Hit-Girl uniform, we had yet to see Johnson back in the rubber gloves and scuba suit that make up the titular hero’s costume. With an entire new roster of superheroes set to appear thanks to Justice Forever, it seems there should be plenty more days to come inside the spandex as the actors suit up. Now, we not only have our first look at Johnson back in costume, but also at Donald Faison in his own outfit while Clark Duke seems to be suiting up as well!
The set photos below give us not only Johnson back in the swing of things in the always classic Kick-Ass costume, but the characters venturing into a meeting with some of the members of Justice Forever. It’s here we get out first glimpse at Faison as Doctor Gravity, who seems very ready to bash some skulls in. You can also get brief glimpses of the husband and wife duo who fight to honor their fallen son along with Insect Man in the red Spider-Man-like outfit next to Doctor Gravity.
However the one interesting thing to take away is also the development of Clark Duke’s Marty, who was one of two best friends at the side of Dave in the original Kick-Ass. Here, Marty has decided to follow in Dave’s footsteps and create his own persona “Battle-Guy” to possibly aid his friend in fighting crime. There’s no word whether or not Duke will get any action sequences, but I’m actually kind of hoping he does.
Also, with the resurrgence of Duke there is no word yet on whether or not Evan Peters will return as fellow best friend Todd. Peters is currently filming the second season of American Horror Story for FX, but there’s still a chance he could be included if director Jeff Wadlow has not kicked the character to the curb in the script.
Co-starring Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Jim Carrey, Morris Chestnut, Lindy Booth and more, Kick-Ass 2 is scheduled to hit theaters on June 28th, 2013.
