MTV News’ ‘Kick-Ass 2′ Set Visit…Well…Kicks Ass


The first trailer for “Kick-Ass 2” let us know that not only are our favorite heroes and villains from the first movie making their triumphant return for a follow-up, but we also learned that they’re bringing friends. But every group of super villains needs a lair to hangout in and host epic showdowns with heroes. That’s exactly what MTV News went to see when we headed to the London set of “Kick-Ass 2.”

Josh Wigler sneaked into the headquarters of the villain formerly known as “Red mist” — and now known as something much more NSFW — to see how the final showdown would go down.

But the new movie won’t be all butt kicking. MTV News spoke with some of the stars to see how things have changed since the first “Kick-Ass.”

Chloe Grace Moretz filled us in on how we’ll see the characters behind Kick-Ass and Hit Girl grow in the sequel. “You see this new evolution of Mindy Macready and Dave Lizewski, and you see this amazing relationship that they get together with,” Moretz said. “It’s a beautiful story. There’s even more heart to it than there was in the last one.”

“Kick-Ass 2″ opens in theaters on August 16.
