I didn't see a thread for this one, coming out in June. I hope it's not a duplicate thread. First official photo from the movie: Kick-Ass (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) consults with Colonel Stars and Stripes (Jim Carrey). The first photos of Hit Girl in the sequel, from Empire magazine:

I enjoyed the first one but the change from "real" to over-the-top cartoon violence and indestructibility at the end for the finale bugged and still bugs me. I just hope they pick a tone and set of universe rules that they stick with from the start to the end of the movie.

Since Katie's story was completely changed for the first movie, I hope the comic is ignored in regards to that character. In fact, the whole thing needs to be toned way down. Millar really went over the top.

I find a lot of Millar's work to be too mean, or shocking just for the sake of being shocking.

Millar really went over the top.I like over the top craziness in comic books and even I think they went into some really ugly territory. Without getting into spoilers, I think it works in comic book form because the reader- who is having fun with the series' usual ridiculous & fairly comedic violence and ass kicking- is shocked out of that amusement when things get dark. However, it'd be too much in live action.

Wow, Jim Carrey is nearly unrecognizable (in a good way). I've only read the original graphic novel -- are you guys saying that the sequel got really brutal in comparison? I don't read a lot of comics, but I loved the movie so much that I decided to read this one.

Yeah, extremely brutal. Nutty stuff and really bad stuff. I can't see it happening in live action, but the dog scene made it into the trailer, so maybe so. I would assume it's available in a collected edition, since the Hit-Girl mini came out after it and took a long time to be released.

I see that it looks like Jim Carrey but I don't hear him at all. Usually unless there is some extreme voice talent there is still the underlying voice to be heard.

Very excited this is coming, not excited at all that Carrey is in it. Hopefully he doesn't play his stupid goofy self and bring his humor to the film.

Ron, have you watched the trailer? Carrey's role in the film looks quite different than the typical role he often plays.

Will prudish theaters censor the title on the marquee this time around? One theater near me even covered up the second "s" in the mylar signs, and I'm in Southern California.
