Mclovin the superhero – first Kick Ass pics!

source: aintitcool.com

The first official photo of Christopher Mintz-Plasse as Red Mist in Matthew Vaughn‘s upcoming film Kick Ass has debuted on AICN.

Kick Ass is about Dave Lizewski (Aaron Johnson), a regular kid who decides to become a superhero, as a means of providing himself with an identity and also to defend himself from constant muggings. Under the guise of Kick Ass!, he teams up with Red Mist (Mintz-Plasse), and the two descend into the dark world of vigilante crime fighting.

The film is an adaptation of Mark Millar‘s comic book series of the same name. Earlier this year, Millar saw another of his comics (Wanted) transfer to the big screen quite successfully.

I felt Wanted suffered from Timur Bekmambetov‘s flashy, but ultimately empty direction. However, I have a lot more faith in Vaughn, who directed the excellent British caper flick Layer Cake.

And look, with McLovin in that get up, how could the film possibly go wrong.

What do you think of Christopher Mintz-Plasse? I personally think he’s got a lot of potential. But will he have a career in a couple years time? Should he have retired after Superbad?

Kick Ass began production in May with a budget of $65 million. It will also star Nicholas Cage and Clark Duke. Now, please enjoy some pictures of Kick Ass! himself.

The cliche would be to call these pics “Kick Ass”. So I won’t. But they are.
