|Release Date:||August 17, 2013|
Kick-Ass 2 is the sequel to Kick-Ass.
Kick-Ass, Hit Girl and Red Mist return for the follow-up to 2010’s irreverent global hit: Kick-Ass 2. After Kick-Ass’ (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) insane bravery inspires a new wave of self-made masked crusaders, led by the badass Colonel Stars and Stripes (Jim Carrey), our hero joins them on patrol. When these amateur superheroes are hunted down by Red Mist (Christopher Mintz-Plasse)—reborn as The Mother Fucker—only the blade-wielding Hit Girl (Chloe Grace Moretz) can prevent their annihilation. When we last saw junior assassin Hit Girl and young vigilante Kick-Ass, they were trying to live as normal teenagers Mindy and Dave. With graduation looming and uncertain what to do, Dave decides to start the world’s first superhero team with Mindy.
Unfortunately, when Mindy is busted for sneaking out as Hit Girl, she’s forced to retire—leaving her to navigate the terrifying world of high-school mean girls on her own. With no one left to turn to, Dave joins forces with Justice Forever, run by a born-again ex-mobster named Colonel Stars and Stripes. Just as they start to make a real difference on the streets, the world’s first super villain, The Mother Fucker, assembles his own evil league and puts a plan in motion to make Kick-Ass and Hit Girl pay for what they did to his dad. But there’s only one problem with his scheme: If you mess with one member of Justice Forever, you mess with them all.

Kick-Ass writer Jane Goldman says that they had ideas for a sequel but were planning on taking things slow. Matthew Vaugn says that it will be more likely if the comics continues on being successful. It will be based on the second comic book series (Kick-Ass: Balls to the Wall) however the book will not be published by Marvel. It is still a Marvel Movie seeing as how Marvel created the character.
Kick-Ass creators and executive producers Mark Miller and John Romita, Jr told Total Film about the sequel:
I always had this planned as three volumes, and each is a sequel. It’s not like a regular comic where it’s issue nine, ten and eleven. It’s Kick-Ass 2, Issue 1 sort of thing. It’s just starting where we left off last time.
Through success [Kick-Ass has] inspired other people, and what the heroes do is form gangs. It’s a bunch of people in masks looking at each other’s Facebooks and going out and fighting each other. Like a massive fight in Time Square with hundreds of superheroes and hundreds of supervillains, and the police trying to break it all up.
The first one was all about becoming a hero. And the second one really is about becoming a villain… you’ve got Red Mist who’s become like Alex in Clockwork Orange. So he’s a bit Heath Ledger’s Joker, a bit of all the bad guys I’ve ever loved in movies. So yeah I suppose it is darker, but I think a big part of Kick-Ass is the jokes, so it’s still funny.
Hit Girl, of course, is back. At the end of the last movie she promised her step-father she wouldn’t kill people anymore, she’s just a kid. So I like the idea of doing a Clint Eastwood in Unforgiven, you know where the gunslinger hasn’t picked up a gun in 20 years, but doing that with a 12 year old girl. She’s watching Glee and all that – she’d rather be out there fighting crime. 
Jane Goldman releved that she and Matthew Vaughn are not involved in the sequel. 
Millar revealed that the sequel is scheduled to begin filming in the summer of 2012.
Lyndsy Fonseca announced that she is reprising her role as Katie Deauxma.
