A brand new characters banner posters for Matthew Vaughn’s Kick-Ass which is based on the groundbreaking, best-selling comic by Mark Millar and John Romita Jr. have been revealed. Don’t forget to enlarge them.
Vaughn (Stardust, Layer Cake) which is directed the movie from the script that he wrote with Jane Goldman stars Nicolas Cage, Aaron Johnson, Lyndsy Fonseca, Mark Strong, Christopher Mintz-Plasse and Chloe Moretz.
Kick-Ass tells the story of average teenager Dave Lizewski (Aaron Johnson), a comic-book fanboy who decides to take his obsession as inspiration to become a real-life superhero.
As any good superhero would, he chooses a new name – Kick-Ass – assembles a suit and mask to wear, and gets to work fighting crime. There’s only one problem standing in his way: Kick-Ass has absolutely no superpowers.
His life is forever changed as he inspires a subculture of copy cats, is hunted by assorted violent and unpleasant characters, and meets up with a pair of crazed vigilantes, including an 11-year-old sword-wielding dynamo, Hit Girl (Chloë Moretz) and her father, Big Daddy (Nicolas Cage).
The movie will be released in theaters everywhere on April 16, 2010.
