Lionsgate has premiered the first official posters for Matthew Vaughn‘s adaptation of Mark Millar‘s comic book Kick-Ass on IGN. The posters come in the form of four character posters, which combine to form the title of the movie. I love the fact that the posters are not even trying to win audiences with the names of the actors involved, and are instead going in-story with the character credits like “DAMON MACREADY IS BIG DADDY” instead of saying Nicolas Cage.
Click on over to IGN to see the poster in full resolution.
Official Plot Synopsis: A twisted, funny, high-octane adventure, director Matthew Vaughn brings KICK-ASS to the big screen. KICK-ASS tells the story of average teenager Dave Lizewski (Aaron Johnson), a comic-book fanboy who decides to take his obsession as inspiration to become a real-life superhero. As any good superhero would, he chooses a new name — Kick-Ass — assembles a suit and mask to wear, and gets to work fighting crime. There¹s only one problem standing in his way: Kick-Ass has absolutely no superpowers. His life is forever changed as he inspires a subculture of copy cats, is hunted by assorted violent and unpleasant characters, and meets up with a pair of crazed vigilantes, including an 11-year-old sword-wielding dynamo, Hit Girl (Chloë Moretz) and her father, Big Daddy (Nicolas Cage).
Kick-Ass hits theaters on April 16th 2010.
