The cast of villains and heroes on hand for Kick-Ass 2 seems to be growing by the day, setting the stage for one sizable fight. With shooting beginning in just a matter of days, director Jeff Wadlow has taken to Twitter to give a few looks at the sets, costumes, and more.

Included in the photos is the first image of villain Red Mist’s sizable Russian bodyguard, Mother Russia. While it’s not yet possible to tell exactly who the actress in question actually is, the photo guarantees that she has the size and strength to do the character justice.

In Mark Millar’s outrageous Kick-Ass universe, Mother Russia acts as bodyguard to Red Mist (now known as ‘The Motherf**er), defending him from attackers and taking out those he demands. Given the events of the first film, it’s a safe bet that the titular hero and his small-but-deadly sidekick will be prime targets. Millar has already stated that the fight between Hit-Girl and Mother Russia will be one of the film’s most memorable moments, having witnessed the planned fight choreography alone. Since Hit-Girl’s final showdown was one of, if not the most memorable action scenes in the original film, it’s a good sign that the creator is expecting that to be outdone, especially with a new director.

But to put on a fight like that, the actress tapped for the role of Mother Russia has some seriously large boots to fill. Wadlow sent a photo from the set with the caption “Chris just met Mother Russia!” The first encounter between Christopher Mintz-Plasse and his soon-to-be bodyguard speaks for itself:

The mystery actress can now hopefully be identified (assuming someone recognizes the arm) but in the meantime it’s good to know that Wadlow is committed to delivering a villain that is every bit as over-sized and powerful as she was in the pages of the comic book. Mother Russia joins John Lequizamo’s Javier and Jim Carrey’s ‘Colonel Stars’ as the latest batch of aspiring villains and heroes set to expand the cast beyond the relatively small group in the first film. And judging by the pairing of oddball character profiles to actors well known for eccentricities, there should be no shortage of scene-stealers (that in itself is a blessing, with no more of Nicolas Cage’s ‘Kryptonite!’ wails to keep us enthralled).

Wadlow has released a few more set photos along with the Mother Russia teaser, including her massive blade (etched with the message “God Giveth, and God Taketh Away”), Hit-Girl’s Ducati, and more. Have a look:

Fans won’t truly know what to expect from the character’s role in the film until the actress is officially announced, but for now her size and stature will have to do.

Which villains or characters are you Kick-Ass fans most looking forward to seeing brought to life? We’d offer some suggestions, but most of their monikers are better left unsaid. If more cast members or cameos are confirmed, we’ll keep you up to date.

Kick-Ass 2 is scheduled for a June 28, 2013 release date.

  1. Awesome.I Can’t wait.

  2. the fight with MR and hit girl was downright brutal, fingers crossed they straight out copy/paste the fight from the comic into the movie b/c that will surely make the haters of the 1st one s*** their pants 😛

    it’s also good that they aren’t including the rape scene b/c that is a disturbing and sensitive place to travel in cinema (weird how rape is avoided but violence against little kids isn’t).

    does anyone know if kick a**es gf still gets beaten and put in hospital. i personally think it would be best if they skipped that scene altogether and have the doctor just say what happened ot her instead.

    • no I wanna see it, or at least a little or whats the point.
      I wanna dark movie that pushes boundaries, rape included.

  3. so no one can tell who that is?

  4. I am going to go out on a limb and say that mother russia will be..Zoe Bell.

  5. Gwendoline Christie from Game of Thrones…6’3???

    • Both solid geusses I’d say she looks to big to be Gina carano

  6. Liked the first one a lot looking forward to this. I think Chloe grace Montez is hot

    • DUDE..You know she is 15 right? Do not know how old you are, but if you are over 18….Dude thats sick.

  7. Looks like Gina Carano.

  8. Wow they really seem to be going all out for this sequel.But the question is will it pay off at the box office?

  9. SO PUMPED FOR THIS MOVIEEEEE! Screw the Avengers or that cinematic abortion called TDKR.


    • You yourself are an obvious abortion.

  10. Looks like Chyna from WWE to me.

    • I was just about to say that lol

    • That was my first thought as well.

  11. Included in the photos is the first image of villain Red Mist’s sizable Russian bodyguard, Mother Russia. While it’s not yet possible to tell exactly who the actress in question actually is, the photo guarantees that she has the size and strength to do the character justice.

  12. I hope it is Gwendoline Christie, that lady was just good in GOT. The others, I dunno.. Don’t they seem a little short to play Mother Russia? I mean I imagined her well over 6ft in the comics.

  13. And the knife looks just badass.

  14. what is Nicolas Cage costume doing on that table?

    • his costume is there for flashbacks …

  15. I don’t know if she can act, but Amazon Eve would be perfect. 6’6″ Plus. some experience with martial arts and boxing. Check out some of the video and photos of her on line.

  16. Well it’s not Chyna because she has a tattoo on her right arm now that goes to the elbow plus she’s busy having a porn career.

    My first thought was a 7 foot wrestler called Isis the Amazon but the boobs are way too small to be her.

  17. This is going to sound strange, but the breast are too small to be Chyna…unless she had them removed.

  18. Did i miss something? I read the comic book and I don’t remember a brutal rape scene. I remember a hinting at a rape..Dude unzipped his pants and then they cut away..Was there more? Are there edited versions of the comic out there?

  19. well i just can say that non of the characters above that have been mentioned in the comments will play Mother Russia…
    my Mom will shock you 😉

  20. They can always hint the rape scene. Nothing happened other than the ‘Mother f*****’ unzipping his trousers and we still saw nothing of that.

    Mother Russia looks awesome but might need a little more muscle but the camera angle is a bit bad atm to judge. Whoever she is, physically she looks perfect and her skin tone even seems to match the same look as Mother Russia in the comics and the wear on her shoulder implies she is definitely some form of boxer or otherwise.

    The fact they are including the blade means her death will likely be the same as in the comics which would push the film to a 15 easily with the possibility of an 18 depending on how they portray it.

    I cannot remember if or when the motorbike is in the comics however by the looks of things it could be for the car chase in issue 6 after the funeral explosions (Which if they include would surely put Red Mist/Mother f***** as the most amazing villain out there.
