Kick-Ass 2, based on the characters created by writer Mark Millar and artist John Romita Jr., follows the title character several months after the events of the last film as he tries to form a team of real life superheroes while concurrently preparing for the arrival of The Red Mist -- an enemy who has been gathering a team of supervillains.

The film's director has been updating fans over the past week from his Twitter account with photos from the London set. Among the images is a body shot of the yet to be revealed actress who has been cast as supervillain Mother Russia:
