Movies nowadays have to include viral marketing, as evidenced by the just launched Trask Industries website for “X-Men: Days of Future Past,” and these sites and YouTube videos are usually a quick way to tell what tone a film is going for. Whereas “Days of Future Past” is going the realistic and politically conscious way, “Kick-Ass 2” is going… well, less that way.
In this new commercial for Justice Forever (Kick-Ass’s supergroup), Aaron Taylor-Johnson takes on a decidedly Mister Rogers feel. This is the latest in a series of recruitment videos, all of which take on an irreverent tone perfectly in line with the “Kick-Ass” comics and first film.
You can check out the viral video below, and don’t forget to take a look at a new clip from the film starring Hit-Girl after the jump!
“Kick-Ass 2” hits theaters on August 16th.
