Now that April is officially here, the debut of Matthew Vaughn’s comic adaptation Kick-Ass is on the horizon. The film’s cult fanbase has grown significantly over the past year thanks to its unique marketing campaign and there’s more to come. Today, we’ve got two clips from the film that show the title character Kick-Ass himself and the older, slightly insane Big Daddy in action.
In the first clip, Kick-Ass as played by Aaron Johnson makes an attempt to surprise his high school love interest Katie by appearing in her bedroom unannounced. On the surface it sounds like a romantic gesture, but during a crime wave it’s not the smartest move. Therefore, as a young woman alone in her home with a costumed man, she reacts accordingly.
In the second clip, Big Daddy does the one thing that Batman can’t…he kills. He invades a crime boss’s warehouse and sets everything a blaze. Nicholas Cage plays the character amazingly well and you can tell he’s having fun with the role. Even though he’s enjoying himself the guy whose throat he just slashed probably isn’t.
Check out both clips below…
