You are hereKick-Ass
Funny-man Jim Carrey has been rumored to be joining the cast of Kick-Ass 2: Balls To The Wall for a while know, but recent tweets from director Jeff Wadlow and Kick-Ass creator Mark Millar seem to have confirmed the speculation.
That's the news coming from TotalFilm, who say that Kick-Ass 2, which will carry the subtitle Balls to the Wall (awesome), says that the word comes straight from the comic creator Mark Millar. Apparently initial production will begin next year, and the studio is aiming for a 2012 release.
It might not be real, but it's definitely awesome. I for one would immediately go out and buy one if this were to become a licensed product. As creator Das Chupa describes:
If you have read the comic or seen the movie you know only ass that was kicked was the hero’s. So, it would seem a perfect compliment for Hasbro’s Operation: Kick-ass. Simply install the nodes to your nether regions as per the comic and relive 117 minutes of mind numbing ass kickery!

Hey guys, you all know Captain_Bang, our resident Yu-Gi-Oh expert, webcomic connoisseur, and all-around awesome dude, but did you know he's working on his own video series? Well now you do. I'll let him explain the concept in full, but it involves exercise and geekiness, a combination I don't fully comprehend. This week, he's talking about Kick-Ass. Also, there's old people. If you're not already intrigued, you should be; it's funny, go watch:
Allow me to say right off the bat, Kick-Ass was one of my most anticipated movies of 2010. As a big fan of the comic series, the trailers made it look absolutely awesome; maybe too awesome to be accurate. It was definitely a fear that, with all the hype going into the film and the excess of fun bits in the trailers, Kick-Ass could not possibly live up. However, as I sat in an applauding auditorium on opening night, I could say without a shadow of a doubt, Kick-Ass meets, and beats, expectations by a mile and a half.
Tuesday on the Tonight Show, Jay Leno played host to a game of Batman trivia between Adam West, who played Batman on the 1960s television show, and Nicholas Cage, who drew inspiration from West while playing Big Daddy in the upcoming Kick-Ass. Place your bets now and see who came out on top below:
Need more Kick-Ass footage to hold you over for the next few weeks? Or maybe you're not quite convinced it's going to kick enough ass (see what I did there?). Well at the very least, Nick Cage is pretty awesome as the death-dealing vigilante, Big Daddy. Check out his moves below in this latest Kick-Ass clip to hit the web:
The Internet has a new, although sadly brief, Kick-Ass clip for you guys to check out, this time focusing around our protagonist. Watch him flail, twirl and generally make a fool of himself in front of a mirror as he suits up and preps himself for his new identity.
This is pretty cool. Mika, a pretty awesome singer-songwriter out of the UK has just released the video for his official contribution to the Kick-Ass movie soundtrack. Mika's a pretty awesome artist, and this track doesn't dissapoint.
Why won't this movie come out already? It's killing me, it really is. Anyways, MTV has snagged a 30-sec clip from the upcoming film. In it, we get a better look at Red Mist's seriously tricked out "Mist Mobile." I want one. Kick-Ass will hit theaters on April 16, you know you'll be there. Check out the clip below.
