"Kick-Ass 2 won't be as 'disturbing' as the comics"

I find that... disturbing.

We could still end up with a hard R, even if they tone some of the scenes down.

Still, I'd be disappointed if anything was toned down, the whole point of it, or at least one of the points, was the escalation of it. If you tone that down then it's not really escalating much anymore now is it.

I hope that comment is just theatrics and deception on Aaron's part. I'm sure that some things will be toned down, but I can't believe everything will be. There's just too much stuff from the book that needs to be in the film adaptation for the audience to get the full impact and experience from the book.

I already can't wait for a trailer.

I'm fine with that. Didn't appreciate it in the book either.

Yes with regards to the theatrics and deception comment

Escalation though is a major theme in "Kick-Ass 2" as Aldo pointed out...taken to the absolute extreme.

Aaron Taylor-Johnson speaks on returning to the role of Kick-Ass.

And again, this disturbing notion that the movie will be less disturbing than the comic.

A comment that irks me is Johnson saying the film is going to have more of a narrative. Strikes me as odd, as I thought Kick-Ass 2 actually had a better narrative structure than the first book.

It also bugs me that they're incorporating the Hit-Girl mini into the movie.

Fans will still go nuts when we finally do see Mindy as Hit-Girl during the funeral sequence. It will be a build up to it, even with the Mindy Hit-Girl stuff.

I can't wait to see a picture of Chloe in full costume as Hit-Girl. That's one of the things I'm waiting for.

First images of Chloe Moretz (Hit-Girl) and Aaron Johnson (Kick-Ass) on the Kick-Ass 2 set.



Click here for more. It's great seeing Hit-Girl back in action. I'm getting more and more excited for Kick-Ass 2.

Already that Dave and Mindy pic reminds me of "Hit-Girl" for some reason. LOL
