The fans have spoken! The polls for ScreenCrush’s 2nd Annual Fan Choice Awards are officially closed, and when it comes to the Best Superhero Movie of 2013 ... it's not 'Man of Steel' or 'Iron Man 3,' surprisingly. No, movie fans instead voted 'Kick-Ass 2' ahead of DC and Marvel's live-action outings.

There's something thematically appropriate about a movie telling the story of a butler who quietly influenced the United States taking the number one spot at the box office over its flashy, bigger rivals. Lee Daniels' 'The Butler' took multiplexes by storm this weekend, taking down last week's competition as well as a handful of seemingly strong newcomers.

Reel Women: Sorry Hit-Girl, ‘Kick-Ass 2′ is Misogynist Garbage

Kick-Ass 2
Universal

The first 'Kick-Ass' film was praised for its depiction of miniature crime-fighter Hit-Girl (Chloe Moretz), whose origin story satirized traditional comic book origin stories: her father (Nicolas Cage) is a delusional vigilante and has stolen her childhood, training her to be a tiny killing machine. Audiences relished in the gleeful, hyperactive sequences in which the foul-mouthed Hit-Girl completely wiped out rooms full of weapon-toting adult men, and for good reason.

Unfortunately, Hit-Girl has lost her magic appeal in 'Kick-Ass 2,' but the even bigger disappointment is the film's horrible issues with gender.

‘Kick-Ass 2′ Review

Kick Ass 2 review
Universal Pictures

Reverence for comic creator Mark Millar runs through the veins of 'Kick-Ass 2.' The affection is often on the nose: One minute, crime fighting high schooler Dave Lizewski (Aaron Johnson) is seen in front of a poster for Millar's 'American Jesus.' In a later flashback, his Dad hangs a piece of 'Superior' art on Dave's wall. The tips of a the hat are a blockade for writer/director Jeff Wadlow, whose passion for Millar's source material disables him from streamlining 'Kick-Ass 2' into a functional action movie.

There are too many moving parts, from Kick-Ass' attempts to form a DIY Justice League, to vengeful mob son Chris D'Amico's (Christopher Mintz-Plasse) emergence into New York's first supervillain, to the awkward high school story of Hit-Girl (Chloe Moretz). Balancing the schizophrenic story is a chore for Wadlow and the audience, and yet 'Kick-Ass 2' still manages to deliver a smattering of fun, living up to the tonal roller coaster ride of the original.

Comic-Con 2013: ‘Kick-Ass 2′ Director Jeff Wadlow

Jeff Wadlow Kick Ass 2 Comic Con 2013

Picture this scene: Playboy and Universal Pictures host a wild party outside at Comic-Con the other night. There are stuntmen on ziplines, Playboy bunnies, lots and lots and lots of alcohol. Now imagine showing up to that party the very next morning at 9am. There are no stuntmen or models and the only alcohol left are the many random bottles still strewn around. This is when and where I meet 'Kick-Ass 2' director Jeff Wadlow.

We both look and feel a little...worse for wear. A member of the cleaning crew is nice enough to cover over with some Windex and clean off a small area for us to sit. I feel hungover. I feel like I'm back in college. It all feels very...'Kick-Ass.'

And with that, we're off and talking Comic-Con, the challenges of making a sequel and casting Jim Carrey.
