Kick Ass 2 Casting

Doctor Gravity Cast

Donald Faison is reportedly in negotiations to join the cast of the sequel to 2010's Kick-Ass, to play a character named Doctor Gravity.
Who is Doctor Gravity? According to the Kick-Ass wiki:

Doctor Gravity is a superhero inspired by Kick-Ass. Doctor Gravity is an English major who highlights as a superhero by night, working with Kick-Ass and Justice Forever. However, to the world at large he is a physics professor at Columbia who built a baseball bat-like pole called the "Gravity Pole" which can make something twenty times its actual weight. If he flips it around it allows him to float. In actuality though it is a baseball bat covered in tin foil and he came up with his backstory to make a statement about who he wants to be.

If cast, Faison will join returning stars Aaron Johnson, Chloe Moretz, Christopher Mintz-Plasse and Nicolas Cage. John Leguizamo is another new addition.

Principal photography starts in in September, in Toronto and London, under Jeff Wadlow's direction. Matthew Vaughn, who directed the 2010 original, is serving as producer on the sequel.


Thanks to Chopsaki for the submission.

I really enjoyed the first movie, and yet I am not excited for this yet.  Hopefully when I see a trailer I'll get pumped.

The tital has me a little concerned as well, hope they don't overdo the action and reach for comedy.

 Didn't Cage die in the first film? I have it on dvd but can't be arsed to watch it again.

 On the previous article it's called "Kick Ass 2, Balls to the wall(s)" or something like that.

The second batch of comics is bad. Maybe unispired is a better choice.  It may translate better to a movie. Basicly its Kick ass version of Empire. But with weak dialouge and not much development.

And the girl has grown to much she needs to be recast. She is fine in Hugo but hell she may be biggger then the two boys.

 no cage did not die, just got burned up real bad. hope he comes back as a protector for Hit Girl then latter in the movie revealing his new makeover. this is cool news i hope it gets made just as good as the first one..

Hmmm... I could have sworn Big Daddy died in the first film. Hit Girl even went to live with his former partner who enrolled her in school. Odd thing was she went to the same school Kick Ass went to...or maybe it was just an adjoining middle school? Anyway, the film sure did make it seem as if he died. Perhaps he's back for flashback scenes? I kinda thought it was odd to have him killed off, so if he's still alive then good.

It will be odd seeing Chloe as Hit Girl again. The reason I say this (and not to sound perverted or whatever) is she has *ahem* 'filled out' a bit since the last one... Hit Girl was always that innocent-looking kid that could beat the hell out of anyone. I certainly don't want a recast for the character, just hoping they can still have her looking like the character from the first movie and comic books and not a 16-going-on-21 year-old.
