Universal Pictures is looking to secure Jim Carrey to play Colonel Stars, “a military-themed superhero who founds the super-team Justice Forever,” in their outrageous superhero comedy sequel “Kick-Ass 2”.

The comedic actor is reportedly a huge fan of the original which may help to persuade him to jump aboard the upcoming sequel.

"Kick-Ass 2: Balls to the Wall" is based on the Mark Millar comic of the same name and will see the return of all of the principal player's from the first film including: Aaron Johnson, Chloe Moretz, Christopher Mintz-Plasse and Nicholas Cage as Big Daddy (we assume in flashbacks).

John Leguizamo, Donald Faison, Robert Emms, Yancy Butler and Morris Chestnut are all set to join the mayhem in the follow-up to Matthew Vaughn’s original.

Jeff Wadlow ("Never Back Down") directs from a script from Vaughn.

“Kick-Ass 2: Balls To The Wall” is scheduled for a tentative release in the summer of 2013.

We will keep you updated as further casting and production details emerge.

In the interim, take a look at what Mark Millar has to say about the pre-vis on the fight sequences in “Kick-Ass 2” via Coming Soon below:

So much prep goes into a movie and - as a novice - I'm constantly surprised how much. Jeff was spoken to eighteen months back, commissioned to write screenplay by Matthew almost a year ago and even though we're not shooting until 10th September all the fight scenes have been worked out by the stunt teams now for several weeks.

We're all based in different countries and so most of this stuff gets viewed remotely. It means we can see costumes and set designs and so on as well as instantly view the daily castings happening in LA, Toronto and London. But the most fun is the pre-viz or pre-visualisations for the fight scenes. These are actually cut like movies and with a temp track, uncostumed stunt-people in the place of the characters and wearing wires and helmets doing the scenes we're going to love in June next year.

My favourite costume I saw this morning is The Colonel's dog. A big dog in a mask. But am torn between the Hit-Girl and Mother Russia fight and the scene with Hit-Girl fighting the super-villains on the roof of the moving van. Both are just mind-blowing. But the Mother Russia fight is going to be one of the most brutal and epic battles in cinema. Think how good Mindy is and then multiply it to 300 pounds of female muscle just pounding her and using every weapon you can imagine in the midst of that big final battle.

This looks amazing with the stunt team and a temp. Imagine what it's going to look like with the actors, Jeff's direction, Eddie's edits and a final soundtrack. I'm really, really excited. Just finishing off The Secret Service #5 today and getting back into Kick-Ass 3 tomorrow. Want to get as much work done in next 2 weeks as possible before the whole show really kicks off.

    I can see him retiring Wolverine after W3 but as stated - HJ is still RIPPED. He does some serious workouts to play Logan and has the body to prove it. If they cast someone younger to play him after W3 then they had better search long and hard because he is one tough act to follow as Logan!

    okay, i took the bait of the Teaser for the new Bond movie, and I am hooked. Bond seems to have a secret link to Spectre, This will be interesting. I love the way the new recycling of Bond stories have developed from the first Craig adaptation and reinventing of the role. Guess I am onboard to continue to be a person that has never missed a Bond movie. From when I first saw Dr. No and From Russia With Love on a double feature in the 60's as a teenager I have been hooked and still am.

    My hope would be that someday, Marvel Studios can reach an agreement to have him appear, at least as a cameo, in one of the Phase 3 films. Maybe as a possible recruit in the Infinity War against Thanos.
