Jim Carrey Stars In New Kick-Ass 2 Pic
Colonel Stars And Stripes, plus pooch

Jim Carrey made no bones about being a fan of the original Kick-Ass, so perhaps it came as no surprise back in September last year when everyone's favourite Pet Detective/Grinch/Liar (Liar) was cast in the film's sequel. What will come as a surprise, however, is how good he looks in camo gear in Kick-Ass 2's first official still.

Boasting an ever-so-American hand-to-hand weapon on his belt and an equally patriotic pooch by his side, Colonel Stars And Stripes means business - and that business is vigilante justice. Here below is how he looks in the original comic book. 

As the leader of Justice Forever, a team of ass-kicking Kick-Ass-a-likes, the former mobster oversees the good work of misfit superheroes Remembering Tommy, Night Bitch, Insect Man, and Battle Guy as they beat up the bad 'uns that stand in their way - including the now extra-terrifying Red Mist (Christopher Mintz-Plasse), now called reinvented as The Motherfucker.

If you want to find out more, a read of Mark Millar's similarly-titled graphic novel should do you right, as should a listen to our podcast interview with Fox's top comic-book advisor thisaway

Kick-Ass 2 - as helmed by new director Jeff Wadlow, replacing Matthew Vaughn from the original - will be violent all upside your local multiplexes come July 19.

Matthew Vaughn
Without MV attached to this I fear it might be a bit rubbish. It certainly has a lot to live up to as the first one was so bloody good! More
