The first official clip from Kick-Ass 2 has arrived, and it sounds like there’s a mysterious new supervillain in town.

This clip seemingly shows Dave’s first inkling that the Mother F**ker exists, who it turns out is actually his old pal Red Mist. It’s pretty NSFW, language-wise, but it sets the tone a bit for the sequel.

Oh, and the funny part? The world’s first supervillain is apparently using social media to develop a grassroots following. A little silly? Sure. But it kind of fits.

The footage also teases to the character’s tie-in, cross-promotion Twitter account, which isn’t a bad marketing idea to get some buzz going in the months leading up to the Aug. 16 release.

For those keeping score, this isn't technically the first clip to surface from the film — that'd be this one, showing off a massive battle — but it is the first official clip to be released by the studio.
