Despite the fact that filming wrapped a few months ago, we haven’t seen much from Jeff Wadlow’s comic book movie sequel Kick-Ass 2. Until now.

We finally have our first official look at Kick-Ass 2, and it seems Jim Carrey’s new character Colonel Stars will definitely be in on the action. The first still shows Colonel Stars and Kick-Ass (Aaron Johnson) having a chat, which makes sense, as they’re expected to team up to battle big bad Red Mist (Christopher Mintz-Plasse). Plus, get a good look at Stars’ pet dog. That is one adorable little crime fighter.

It’s great to finally get an official peek at the film, and it’s a miracle that it was made at all. Despite the fact that it’s awesome, the first Kick-Ass didn’t exactly light up the box office. But, it found new life on DVD, and the studio felt confident enough to greenlight a sequel based on the next series of Mark Millar’s comic, which inspired the first film.

In addition to returning names Johnson, Mintz-Plasse and Chloe Moretz, the film also stars Carrey and former Scrubs star Donald Faison.

Kick-Ass 2 opens June 28, 2013. Do you plan on checking it out?
