This ain't The Avengers… The sequel to 2010's down 'n' dirty amateur superhero spoof Kick-Ass is finally coming, and we've got a first look at the entertaining vigilante trailer. ***Be warned, folks – it's a red band trailer and contains some seriously salty language and situations!***
Chloe Grace Moretz, Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Christopher Mintz-Plasse are back for the follow-up tale of a teen who decides to fight crime and quickly finds himself way out of his league. This time Kick-Ass (Taylor-Johnson) and Hit-Girl (Moretz) need to assemble more amateur-hour superheroes to take on Red Mist (Mintz-Plasse), who is out to avenge the death of his gangster dad as "The Mother F---er" with the help of a horde of super-baddies.
Among the masked vigilantes fighting side-by-side with Kick-Ass and Hit-Girl are Colonel Stars and Stripes, played by Jim Carrey, and the returning Clark Duke as Battle Guy.
Kick-Ass 2 hits theaters August 16.
