A new poster has been released for the Matthew Vaughn comic adaptation of Kick-Ass. The film’s first teaser trailer debuted weeks ago, as well as a poster featuring Aaron Johnson as the title character. The latest one sheet promotes Kick-Ass’s sidekick, Red Mist as portrayed by Christopher Mintz-Plasse.
Check out his full poster below…
The marketing for the movie wants to capitalize on how unrealistic it is to be a superhero in today’s society. Films like X-Men, Spider-Man, or even The Dark Knight make the idea of superpowers and fighting prowess a possibility, but that’s not the case with Kick-Ass. The first poster had the tagline, “I can’t fly. But I can kick your ass,” and with the latest one featuring Red Mist it says, ” I can’t read your mind. But I can kick your ass.” Are you noticing a trend here?
It’s going to be interesting to see what Nicolas Cage‘s Big Daddy and Chloe Moretz‘s Hit Girl posters say. Kick-Ass will arrive in theaters on April 16, 2010 and is an adaptation of the comic by Mark Millar (the man behind Wanted).
