Looks great despite the alterations and changes being made, and they're still reshooting as previously reported so we don't know what will remain in the film or change either. Jim Carrey is going to scene steal. The film also has a new composer.

Hit-Girl has become quite the Hit-Woman.

While I realize a new composer is going to want to put his own stamp on the film. I hope he retains some themes from the first film to maintain a sense of continuity with the music.

I'm sure he will retain some of the themes, but keep in mind some of the film's music was from Murphy's "Sunshine" score as well. This film is also a lot different than the first was in terms of tone as you know. So there will be a bunch of new stuff too. I'm disappointed Jackman, Murphy, and DeVries aren't returning but understand Wadlow would want to collaborate with his composer.

I'm pretty excited to hear some new themes actually. While yes, ideally I'd like the film to have a thematic continuity to it, I'm down for new music as well.

Also, here's the trailer in better quality for those of you interested:



I must say, what a difference some better quality makes.

Certainly looks interesting, looks like Carey will steal the show and Hit Girl, of course.

I'm coming into this having only seen the first movie, so I can't judge it as an adaptation, but as a movie it looks great to me. Definitely agree that Jim Carey looks like he'll be the scene stealer.

Re: Kick-Ass 2 -Movie Discussion, News, Interviews, Pics. ect.

I'm not impressed with what I've seen, from the trailer. Don't care for Jim Carrey's voice, and there seems to be something missing. The original movie had a manic energy to it, but perhaps it's just-for me-the surprise will be gone. And the movie is going to lack without Nicholas Cage's Adam West, which I thought was awesome. Hit-Girl seemed far more interesting than Hit-Teen or Hit-Woman. And while I get that Kick-Ass would likely get bigger and better as a hero in a sequel, he really bulked up. It sort of takes away the ordinary guy donning a suit to fight crime thing (though granted that was tweaked already in the first movie, compared to the comics). I'll still go see it, but my expectations are lowered.

Kick Ass still had his sorta Jew-Fro so it's not like he completely turned into a bulked up stud. Nothing you can do about Hit Girl, people age and recasting the part would have been lame. And I think Carrey will bring us the levels of delight that Cage did.

Millar and Romita Jr. to have cameos in Kick-Ass 2.

Apparently, they had cameos in the first movie as well, but were edited out.

The more I see of this the better it looks. I wonder if we will get any other character based trailers like this one!
