Dave Lizewski/Kick-Ass (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) asks Mindy Macready/Hit-Girl (Chloe Moretz) for her help in a scene from the upcoming superhero sequel Kick-Ass 2, where he compares them both to Batman and Robin. Although they teamed up in the 2010 original, Kick-Ass, Mindy seems reluctant to take on Dave as her crime-fighting partner in director Jeff Wadlow's follow-up. As you can see in this scene, Dave has a lot of work to do, in order to get up to Mindy's ass-kicking level. Plus, we have another scene where Mindy races home to avoid being caught in costume as Hit-Girl by her new guardian, Sergeant Marcus Johnson (Morris Chestnut).
Kick-Ass 2 comes to theaters August 16th, 2013 and stars Chloe Moretz, Jim Carrey, Nicolas Cage, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Lyndsy Fonseca, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, John Leguizamo, Donald Faison. The film is directed by Jeff Wadlow. »

Not to knock the source material, but the Marvel Cinematic Universe has accomplished the unthinkable. They've created versions of characters previously deemed too complicated or unfamiliar and made them connect with audiences in a big way. Iron Man became an A-List hero after spending decades in Spider-Man's shadow. Thor, a riff on Norse mythology tied to an impenetrable and retconned to death origin, was turned into a charismatic warrior with a surprising knack for comedy. "Marvel's the Avengers" was the franchise's crowning achievement, proving that the Hulk can be done right outside of comics in addition to creating what could go down as one of the best Avengers stories told in any medium.
With all of the success the Marvel films have had, it's no wonder the comic books have slowly started incorporating these changes, either as a reaction to or in anticipation of their big screen counterparts. »
