Kick-Ass 2: Balls To The Wall
ScreenCrush’s Comic Strip is a weekly roundup of the hottest superhero movie news items. From Marvel to DC and points in between, if it pertains to costumed comic-book heroes, we’re covering it here, bringing you our expert analysis. This week, we have plenty of ‘Justice League of America’ movie updates, ‘Wolverine’ promo imagery and Mark Millar’s guided tour of the ‘Kicks-Ass 2’ site.

It will be interesting to see if any of these 'Kick-Ass 2: Balls to the Wall' character posters get hung up in movie theaters. Character posters are all the rage (the last 'Twilight' film had about seven hundred), but it's hard to imagine a multiplex hanging up a poster that says "The Mother F---er" in their lobby. Check out his NSFW poster here and the rest below.
The 'Kick Ass 2' red band trailer feels like an experiment in excess. There's only one way to top the first film and that's to up the insanity and brutality in every way, throwing social consciousness and sanity to the wind and embracing the...
Have you seen the new 'Kick-Ass 2' trailer yet? It is, to use a cliche, very kick ass. Part of that is seeing Chloe Moretz return as Hit Girl, part of it is seeing Jim Carrey's new superhero and part of it is the music in the background.
