Kick-Ass 2 release date is set

August 16th, 2012 by Christopher Williams Comments

Can’t wait to get some more of Kick-Ass and his ultra violent little pal Hit-Girl?

Well the date has been set. According to Comic Book Resources, Kick-Ass 2 will be coming to a theater near you on June 28, 2013. Based on the books by Mark Millar and John Romita Jr, this installment will draw inspiration from Kick-Ass vol. 2 as well as the Hit-Girl miniseries.

Two roles have already been filled with Robert Emms set to play cop turned hero Insect Man and Morris Chestnut stepping into the role of Marcus Williams, Hit-Girl’s step dad. Let’s hope Chestnut can stay alive through the whole movie. ( His characters have a penchant for getting killed off; see Boyz N Tha Hood and Anaconda).

They will join the established cast along with new members John Leguizamo and Donald Faisonwhen production is set to get underway next month. This time Matthew Vaughn will take a step back from the camera and into a producers role as he is already committed to direct the forthcoming – “should be one of the best movies ever” – X-Men, Days Of Future Past.

Christopher is self-billed as the World's Coolest Nerd (meaning he wears glasses and is clumsy, but he never earned good marks in school). He loves all things Star Wars and superhero related such as comics, books, cartoons and movies. He's a husband and father who somehow manages to keep up with his pastimes since his day job mainly consists of sitting around a store with not much to do. He's very outspoken and wants to share his opinions with the world, or at least his fellow nerds. You can follow him on Twitter @AUDone44.
