The first clip from Kick-Ass 2 has leaked out, and it’s a doozy. Want to see a massive hero vs. villain fight scene — including Kick-Ass’ faceoff with his archnemesis?

The studio went all out with our first real look at the gritty sequel, showing what looks to be a major climax scene between Kick-Ass’ (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) gang of heroes and the Mother-F--ker’s (Christopher Mintz-Plasse) crew of evildoers.

The banter is pretty great, and we even get a nice Avengers joke from the lovely young Hit-Girl (Chloe Moretz). Topical! Despite Jeff Wadlow stepping in to direct, it definitely has the same irreverent feel Matthew Vaughn nailed in the cult-fave original. Here's hoping that vibe holds true for the entire film.

Kick-Ass 2 looks to ramp up the action considerably, and it’ll be great to dig deeper into the weird universe Mark Millar cooked up in the comic series:
