No Carrey to Promote Kick-Ass 2
Plus the new poster

First and foremost one has to ask, did he not see the original film, read the comic book, read the script, or even pay attention to what was going on around him during filming?
Jim Carrey has recently tweeted that he will not be promoting Kick-Ass 2 ,“in all good conscience I cannot support that level of violence.”
Carrey has remarked that this is due to the Sandy Hook Elementary shootings. He further tweeted “my apologies to others involve with the film. I am not ashamed of it but recent events have caused a change in my heart.”
One has to appreciate his beliefs, but if he felt this strongly about violence to begin with, then why did he do the picture?
Kick-Ass creator Mark Millar had this to say [via Empire]: “[I'm] baffled by this sudden announcement as nothing seen in this picture wasn’t in the screenplay 18 months ago. Yes, the body-count is very high, but a movie called Kick-Ass 2 really has to do what it says on the tin.”.
A strange turn of events for the Kick-Ass sequel.
Kick-Ass 2 enters theaters on August 16, 2013.
