Kick-Ass 2 release date is set

August 16th, 2012 by Marc 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.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
