'Kick-Ass 2' First Official Photo with Jim Carrey as Colonel Stars and Strips

Aaron Taylor-Johnson returns as Kick-Ass in this vigilante-as-hero sequel from director Jeff Wadlow, in theaters this June.
The first official photo from Kick-Ass 2 has arrived. Aaron Johnson returns in costume as the vigilante Kick-Ass, and this time he is teaming up with the superhero team Justice Forever, led by Colonel Stars and Strips. We saw photos from the set of Jim Carrey as Colonel Stars and Stripes, but here is a more polished look at this middle-aged crime fighter standing alongside Kick-Ass, a couple of sodas, and his loyal guard dog Sophia.

Kick-Ass 2 Photo

In the comic books, Colonel Stars and Stripes is actually two characters, Colonel Stars and Lieutenant Stripes. And Sophia? Let's just say, if you're an animal lover, and you adore the above photo simply because of the masked German Shepard...Maybe this movie is not for you.

Here is an official description of the characters from the book, which have been combined into Jim Carrey's Colonel Stars and Stripes. Careful, though this is from the comic book, it does contain some hard core spoilers for the movie.

"Sal started out as a soldier for the Genovese crime family, working alongside his brother Lieutenant Stripes. Then at some point, both brothers found religion and decided to repent for their crimes. Inspired by Kick-Ass, they formed the Justice Forever team and set out to clean up the city as superheroes.

When Colonel Stars and Lieutenant Stripes both formed Justice Forever, they invited several other superheroes to join. They recruited Remembering Tommy, Night Bitch, Insect Man, and Battle Guy. Soon after, Kick-Ass joined the group, and, after which, the team led an attack on an apartment which had been rumored to be a front for prostitution. Sal had his men attack the lowlifes that infested the apartment, and had his guard dog, Sophia, disable the head of the prostitution plot by signaling the animal to bite down on the man's testicles. After the rescuing the prostitutes, Sal had promised the man that if he had heard any other rumors about the apartment, he would crush him.

Tragically, Sal ended up becoming the first victim of Red Mist and his new gang of super-villains. After killing his dog and trashing his hideout, they left his defiled body to be discovered by the police. His murder almost swayed Hit-Girl to come out of retirement. It is actually implied by Kick-Ass that he may have been in poor health before Red Mist attacked him."

Kick-Ass 2 was released August 16th, 2013 and stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Chloe Moretz, Morris Chestnut, Claudia Lee, Amy Anzel, Clark Duke, Augustus Prew, Mary Kitchen. The film is directed by Jeff Wadlow.

    @Al-Gonz yea I agree Big-Daddy's death should've been like the comics I mean sure say his death was because of too much body damage is ok but i wanted the movie to be more over-the-top sequences

  9. Al Gonz

    @monkeyiron2-0 not trying to dis-agree i think some how they would try to sugar it up like how they did to big-daddy...cause in the comic they blow his brains gets blown out which to me it was more gore then the movie.....but either way its going to be good

    @ejk1 i hope so sh*t SB is already watchable because of the commericials

  12. ejk1

    @monkeyiron2-0 Probably not. This film doesn't have the kind of appeal to the masses that would warrant the price tag that comes along with SB weekend advertising.

    @ejk1 Ok sorry sheesh....also do you think a trailer will appear dutring superbowl weekend

    @monkeyiron2-0 This is from the article above:

    "Here is an official description of the characters from the book, which have been combined into Jim Carrey's Colonel Stars and Stripes. Careful, though this is from the comic book, it does contain some hard core spoilers for the movie."

    That is telling you to go forward at your own risk. Some people, upon seeing that, may have decided to stop reading the article. You did not give them that same opportunity.

    @justatadmatt I doubt the movie will look anything like the photo. That's just the "style" of how it is being shown. I like it, makes it look like the comic.

    @monkeyiron2-0 Dumbass, saying "SPOILER ALERT/WARNING" in an article is technically "warning us of something". Also, @ejk1 is right, you did spoil a characters death. Stop being retarded and keep your mouth shut or think before you comment.

    2 years agoby @ghostmanFlag

  17. Monkeyiron 2.0

    @ejk1 he didn't warn us of anything. There's part of this artivle that says "SPOILER ALERT" or "SPOILER WARNING" so again don't blame me again

  18. justatadmatt

    parts of this photo look overly saturated and photoshopped (dogs legs and parts of carrey look airbrushed)...i just hope the movie keeps the same tone as the first.

    @ejk1 Sure didn't, did he? I'm hoping that's one of those moments I'll manage to forget by the time I get around to watching this.

    @monkeyiron2-0 Do you see where Orange warns of spoilers in the article? That allows people to skip that part, and not have anything spoiled. You didn't give everyone that same courtesy.

    @therealGoku again that would've destroyed the whole structure of the film and that was one of the things I hated about the ending in the comics

    @ejk1 and technically Alan and Carrey spoiled it dude all I said was "brutal death"

  24. The Real Goku

    @monkeyiron2-0 yeah but they could have done it lol. And they changed big daddy's story. The made him seek revenge in the movie but in the comics he wasn't seeking revenge at all just wanted a villain lol

  25. Monkeyiron 2.0

    @therealGoku I sort of agree with you but i'm glad they didn't because
    1.) the original torture was too brutal and un-real
    2.)I f*cking hated the ending

    @monkeyiron2-0 yeah I hope they stick to the comics! The first one was good but would have been better if they stayed to the original story. Lets hope everything happens very brutal!! Lol
