Team Kick-Ass is going all out to remind us that the sequel is headed for our screens. Already we’ve had the red-band trailer (see below), the first poster and some stills. Now come character posters, which helpfully introduce such players as Night-Bitch, Mother Russia and Black Death, plus Red Mist’s (Christopher Mintz-Plasse) new alter ego, The Mother F****r.

Kick-Ass 2 picks up the story from the original as Kick-Ass Dave (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) and Hit Girl Mindy’s (Chloë Grace Moretz) campaign has inspired a wave of self-made crusading copycats.

Dave in particular wants to focus the new vigilantes’ energy, creating a superhero team called Justice Forever alongside the crazy Colonel Stars and Stripes (Jim Carrey). But when Mindy is busted as Hit Girl and forced to retire so she can go back to school, Dave must face the terrifying vengeance of Red Mist, who has restyled himself as The Mother F****r and formed his own league – of villains.

Kick-Ass 2 hits on July 19 before arriving in the US on August 16.

@TPM007 - I said the same thing on the Total Film website. I've seen pics of Olga Kurkulina before and while she is manly, she's never looked like Kurt Russell before. More
