Comic-Con 2013: The Kick-Ass 2 Crew Talk Kick-Ass 2
'McLovin' himself on his new nickname and more...

Alas, Hit-Girl herself, Chloe Grace Moretz, wasn't able to make it to San Diego for this year's Comic-Con, but fortunately her fellow Kick-Ass 2 stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Christopher Mintz-Plasse and Donald Faison could, along with director Jeff Wadlow and creators of the comic book John Romita Jr. and Mark Millar.

Here is a collection of video interviews with all of the above, where they discuss coming back to the franchise even though there wasn't any contractual obligation to do so - more exciting than it sounds, honest - and why Mintz-Plasse is a little worried about the new moniker that's going to be shouted at him in the street for the foreseeable future.

 

This time around, Aaron Taylor-Johnson's Kick-Ass / Dave Lizewski has teamed up with a group of other would-be superheroes in costume, led by Colonel Stars-And-Stripes (Jim Carrey). Meanwhile, Chloe Grace Moretz' Hit Girl is attempting to adjust to normal life as teenager Mindy MacReady with mixed results, and they're all threatened by Christopher Mintz-Plasse's orphaned mad man set on revenge.

Kick-Ass 2 also stars Clark Duke, John Leguizamo, Morris Chestnut and Lyndsy Fonseca, and hits UK cinemas on August 14 and the US on August 16. Refresh your palate with the red-band trailer below.

Got a horrible feeling the way things are going at the box-office this year it's gonna be a bit of a bumpy ride. More
