Some of Red Mist/The Motherfucker's nastier moments from the comic, including murdering children and rape were omitted from the film. Christopher Mintz-Plasse 's reaction to this was literally, "Oh, thank God".
The lines "Try to have fun, otherwise, what's the point?" and "Yeah, there's a dog on your balls!" were both improvised by Jim Carrey.
Evan Peters was unable to reprise his role as Todd Haynes because of scheduling conflicts with American Horror Story (2011). Similarly, Lyndsy Fonseca was only available for a brief cameo as Katie Deauxma due to scheduling conflicts with Nikita (2010).
Colonel Stars and Stripes is a combination of two characters from the comics: Colonel Stars and Lieutenant Stripes (they're brothers).
Jim Carrey bought his own props to look like the comic book version of Colonel Stars and Stripes.
The posters seen in Dave's room, "American Jesus" and "Superior", are two graphic novels written by "Kick-Ass" author Mark Millar.
According to Chloë Grace Moretz, a sequel to Kick-Ass 2 would be unlikely because it was one of the most pirated movies of the year, leading to a disappointing box office. However, Matthew Vaughn, director of the first movie, has indicated that he still has plans for a Hit-Girl prequel, and a third Kick-Ass movie.
Mark Millar was actually delighted by Jim Carrey's disapproval of the film's violence. In his own words, Millar described it as "like saying 'this porno has too much nudity.'"
In the comic for the first Kick Ass, Dave states that he likes the TV series 'Scrubs'. In Kick Ass 2 Dr Gravity is played by Donald Faison who also plays Turk in Scrubs.
The Motherfucker's lair was actually a warehouse at Pinewood studios. Following completion of filming it was demolished in order to build a new soundstage.
Lindy Booth (Night-Bitch) previously worked with director Jeff Wadlow on his first film Cry_Wolf (2005).
In one scene where Dave and Mindy are talking, Dave is wearing a shirt that says "I Hate Reboots". That same year, Chloe Grace Moretz starred in a reboot of "Carrie".
The Statue of a child wearing an Army Helmet and holding a Grenade in the villain's lair is titled "Boy Soldier" by British artist Schoony.
This is Jeff Wadlow's first R-rated film.
Many of the characters talk about Batman. Jim Carrey starred in the Batman film, Batman Forever.
Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Daniel Kaluuya previously starred together in the movie Chatroom (2010).

Spoilers 

The trivia items below may give away important plot points.

Creators Mark Millar and John Romita Jr. have cameos as superheroes in the climactic battle between the superheroes and the supervillains.
Jim Carrey only has 7 minutes and 45 seconds of screen time.
In the wake of the Newtown Elementary School shooting in 2012, Jim Carrey refused to take part in any promotion campaigns for this film, because he felt he could no longer support its violent content. Carrey is known for his personal distaste for guns and gun violence, not unlike his character in the movie (the only gun the Colonel handles in the film is unloaded).
When Mother Russia is destroying the police cars, Korobeiniki, a traditional Russian song which is widely known for appearing as a theme music to "Tetris", is playing.
In a deleted scene of the film, just before the climactic fight starts, Eisenhower runs in and bites the Mother F***er's crotch.
When Mindy is going out on her date, she tells Marcus not to worry because she can "kill a man with his own finger". Later, in the final battle scene, Hit-Girl kills Black Death with his own finger.
Mother Russia has a tattoo on her left arm, which you can see right after the scene when Motherfucker tried to rape Night Bitch. Translating from Russian it says 'Don't fear, don't beg, don't believe'.
During the Flashback during the funeral, you can see the name Mark Millar on top of the poster. Mark Millar is the author of the Kick-Ass comics.
When The Motherfucker is destroying Colonel Stars and Stripes' lair a rarely used 49 star flag can be seen. After he says "Let's trash this place!" you get a clear shot of it. The flag was used for less than a year after Alaska joined then Union in A.D.1959.
