It's been a little while since our last update on "Kick-Ass," Matthew Vaughn's big-screen adaptation of John Romita Jr. and Mark Millar's comic book series about a teenager who decides to fight crime as a costumed vigilante. Nevertheless, another piece of news has arrived — and it puts the spotlight on The Red Mist, the copycat vigilante played by "Superbad" actor Christopher Mintz-Plasse.
The new "Kick-Ass" poster, which debuted in massive, high-res glory on AICN today, features The Red Mist front and center, perched on top of his super-charged car (which we first saw in these early "Kick-Ass" set photos). Playing off the tagline of the previous "Kick-Ass" poster, this one reads, "I Can't Read your Mind. But I Can Kick Your Ass."
Currently scheduled to hit theaters April 16, "Kick-Ass" has kicked off its marketing campaign the last month or so with the first official "Kick-Ass" trailer, an official "Kick-Ass" movie website, and the aforementioned poster featuring actor Aaron Johnson in costume as teenager-turned-hero Kick-Ass.
As for The Red Mist, Mintz-Plasse shared some thoughts with MTV News about his character's fight scenes and weed-smoking ways last month, and revealed how the glam-rock style of David Bowie influenced his character's costume.
