It may only have been a rumor a couple of weeks ago, but it’s reality today as Kick-Ass 2 director Jeff Wadlow has confirmed that Jim Carrey will in fact be taking the role of The Colonel, via a thinly veiled Tweet.
This will be Carrey’s third role in a comic book property, following successful turns in The Mask and Batman Forever in the mid-90s.
Kick-Ass 2 heads into principal photography in just four days time and Wadlow seems super psyched about the project judging from his Twitter feed. A promising sign for the sequel that seemed like an unlikely prospect after the original didn’t exactly light the box office on fire, despite earning considerable fanboy acclaim.
Excited for all the inevitably crazy shit that’ll go down in Kick-Ass 2?
