There’s a lot of interest in Matthew Vaughn’s Kick-Ass these days and now there’s a couple of new items that have been released, in the form of a new poster and trailer courtesy of UGO.com, which give us a better look at one character in particular: Nicolas Cage as Big Daddy. The character, fairly obviously modeled after Batman right down to the yellow-highlighted utility belt, is standing on a rooftop overlooking Manhattan and features the caption “I can’t be invisible. But I can kick your ass.”
The new clip shows Cage’s character not in costume, but in a secluded location training his daughter Hit Girl, played by Chole Moretz. Said training involves learning how to take a couple bullets to the chest while wearing a bulletproof vest and then negotiating with her father to allow her to shoot him a couple more times. The clip further reinforces the humor, and how dark it is, that has previously been established in prior trailers.
I’m sure these latest two releases will bring interest in the film to an even higher pitch. Unfortunately, we’ve still got to wait until April, 2010 to wait to see it in theaters. Until then, check out the clip and a larger version of the poster after the jump.
