A few years ago, Chloe Moretz went from sweet little sister (of a very depressing Joseph Gordon-Levitt) to a foul-mouthed little ninja and total bad-ass. She was barely a teenager when she starred as Hit Girl in Kick-Ass, and this year, she’s returning to the role looking a little more mature.

Empire has released the first images of Moretz as the battling baby bad-ass Hit-Girl in Kick-Ass 2. In the first photo she’s in action, fully equipped with all her special types of knives. It looks like she took some guys down too. The second one is mainly a complete look at her outfit, which looks pretty much the same. Still, she looks totally cool and in control.

There’s also a new image of Jim Carrey and Aaron Taylor-Johnson as their respective characters. They seem to be forming some kind of alliance (team Justice Forever), or perhaps they’re congratulating each other on a job well done (notice the embraces going on in the background).

Kick-Ass 2 brings back Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Lyndsy Fonseca, Clark Duke and possibly Nicolas Cage as Big Daddy. John LeguizamoDonald Faison, Lindy Booth, and Morris Chestnut also have parts. The film arrives in theaters on June 28. Check out the new photos below:

Are you looking forward to Kick-Ass 2?
