Kick-Ass 2 finally hits theaters this weekend, and we're with its stars Chloe Grace Moretz, Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Christopher Mintz-Plasse to answer the important questions in life: Spandex or leather? Weapons or bare hands? And which superhero was their favorite when they were kids?
The three young stars are back for the follow-up tale to the surprise 2010 hit about 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.
