A new trailer for "Kick-Ass 2" is here, though it doesn't offer much more than what we saw in the red band clip released in March.
Despite the familiar territory, it's fun to see our heroes back in action, and the new promo offers plenty. Hit-Girl (Chloe Grace Moretz) taunts Kick-Ass (Aaron Taylor Johnson) to punch her before beating the crap out of him. Col. Stars and Stripes (Jim Carrey) shows up and promptly bashes a baddy's brains in with a baseball bat.
"Try to have fun," the colonel implores the gang. "Otherwise, what's the point?"
Christopher Mintz-Plasse is back as the bad guy, trading his Red Mist moniker for a new profanity-laced identity (you'll have to check out the red band clip for that), and he's still bent on taking down Kick-Ass and company as one of the world's first real supervillains. Good thing Kick-Ass has some impressive new abs to help him out. »

Thanks to the success of Sam Raimi's Spider-Man, the 2000s saw a powerful resurgence in the superhero genre. Everyone from The Punisher and Hellboy to Batman, The Fantastic Four, and Superman got new movies.for better or worse. But after 2009 brought Zack Synder's controversial adaptation of Watchmen and the critically loathed atrocity X-Men Origins: Wolverine, industry watchers were speculating that superheroes were back on their way out. This was the cold climate that the R-rated independently financed Kick-Ass came into. Many fans of superhero movies enjoyed this dark twists on the genre's convention. And while concerned parents wagged their fingers at the expletive-spouting Hit-Girl, she proved the part that made Chloe Moretz a star. Still, with mixed reviews and a modest box office total of $96 million, it was unclear if Kick-Ass and his colleagues would ride again.

The non-super heroes are back to fight the bad guys, and this time they're bringing along a barely recognizable Jim Carrey as Colonel Stars and Stripes. And he's bringing along a dog that apparently bites in places where you wouldn't want to be bitten. Universal Pictures has released a new trailer for "Kick-Ass 2," and after watching it, you will never mess with a 15-year-old girl again -- especially one who for some reason can ride a motorcycle the way that Mindy Macready (Chloe Grace Moretz) can.

Director Bryan Singer is currently bringing together 20th Century Fox's two X-Men timelines as cameras roll on next year's time-travelling mutant epic X-Men: Days of Future Past, but the studio itself has bigger plans afoot, bringing in acclaimed comic book writer and producer Mark Millar (Kick-Ass) to serve as creative consultant as it attempts to replicate the success of Marvel Studios' with its own shared movie universe.
Of course, given the fact Fox only has the rights to X-Men and The Fantastic Four (which is being rebooted in 2015 under Chronicle helmer Josh Trank), the studio will be hoping that the uncanny world of the X-Men provides enough of a pool of heroes to spearhead this universe. Speaking to SFX (via ComicBookTherapy), Singer has spoken briefly about Millar's role, as well as his own plans to develop the X-Men universe which he launched himself back in 2000:

Universal is having fun this year with hits like “Fast and Furious 6,” and the studio is hoping “Kick Ass 2″ will continue that streak when it bows later this summer.
The studio’s latest trailer features main characters Kick-Ass (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) and Hit Girl (Chloe Moretz) beating up more bad guys with the help of Jim Carrey’s new character, Colonel Stars and Stripes.
With a slew of tentpoles like “Despicable Me 2″ and “2 Guns” still slated to bow, “Kick-Ass 2″ will try to draw the same audience that helped films like “The Expendables” movies become such big hits. Sources say the pic’s budget is in the same range as the original, around $30 million.
The film bows on Aug. 16. »

"I'm going to wipe my ass with your face."
If you're excited about Kick-Ass 2, here's a great behind the scenes look at the film featuring the cast and crew talking about the movie and shooting some scenes. According to MTV, the scene they are filming here is the big showdown between the superheroes and supervillains.
It was the first of a brutal four-day shoot surrounding the epic showdown between Lizewski and D'Amico's gangs. Every single one of the costumed cast members was sweating bullets as they engaged in take after take of epic battle, all in the middle of what's easily the single-largest set created for either "Kick-Ass" film.
The Jeff Wadlow-directed film stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Chloë Grace Moretz, Morris Chestnut, John Leguizamo, Olga Kurkulina, Clark Duke, Donald Faison, and Christopher Mintz-Plasse. It will be packed with blood, vulgarity, laughs, and heart.

MTV was able to go on the set of Kick-Ass 2 and they were nice enough to share a video, which you can see below.
“[He's] taken it a whole step higher. It’s got all of the elements of the first ‘Kick-Ass,’ but there’s a lot of story.
“It’s pretty intense, but it’s been a good laugh.”

After the first red band trailer and a Hit Girl (Chloe Moretz) centric international trailer for Kick-Ass 2, we're hoping there's a little more of a tease in store before the film arrives later this summer.

The set visit highlights the evil lair that superhero Red Mist, now the vengeful villain The Mother Fucker, has created for him and his legion of bad guys. But Kick-Ass and his team of heroes, including Jim Carrey, won't back down. Watch!

From MTV News
The first trailer for "Kick-Ass 2" let us know that not only are our favorite heroes and villains from the first movie making their triumphant return for a follow-up, but we also learned that they're bringing friends. But every group of super villains needs a lair to hangout in and host epic showdowns with heroes. That's exactly what MTV News went to see when we headed to the London set of "Kick-Ass 2."
Josh Wigler sneaked into the headquarters of the villain formerly known as "Red mist" — and now known as something much more Nsfw — to see how the final showdown would go down.
But the new movie won't be all butt kicking. MTV News spoke with some of the stars to see how things have changed since the first "Kick-Ass."
