New ‘Kick-Ass’ Photos: Nicolas Cage, Chloe Moretz, Costumes, Guns & Comics

Three new photos hit the ’Net today from “Kick-Ass,” the live-action adaptation of Mark Millar and John Romita Jr.’s edgy real-life superhero series.

The trio of photos are available on HitFix, but one of our favorites from the bunch is this shot of Nicolas Cage and Chloe Moretz (our first “official” look at Cage and Moretz, in fact) looking like your average father and daughter having a cup of hot chocolate together — against a backdrop of machine guns!

After the jump, check out a close-up photo of Aaron Johnson in his Kick-Ass costume, and some thoughts about the new photos.

While we’ve heard from Chloe Moretz on a semi-regular basis throughout the “Kick-Ass” filming, this is the first we’ve seen of Cage’s “Big Daddy” character. It’s not quite what we were expecting — but color us intrigued. We can’t wait to see the pair dishing out brutal justice.

As for Johnson, he continues to look the part of Dave Lizewski, and after last month’s report on a “Kick-Ass” set visit, our interest is piqued when it comes to the “Kick-Ass” costumes.

What do you think about the new photos? Looking forward to “Kick-ass” hitting theaters?
