I don't know if anybody told you this, but people don't become vigilantes by sitting around on their asses watching Internet videos. But it just so happens these videos tell you how you can become a vigilante. That's called "superhero logic." If you feel you have the appropriate powers and you think you're worthy enough to get on board with a superteam, choose wisely. Chances are, your power isn't going to be remarkable enough to earn a spot on prestigious teams like The Avengers or the Justice League, so you may want to set your sights a little lower.
This is where Justice Forever steps in and bludgeons the fandom out of you. The Kick-Ass 2 marketing team is reaching out to potential viewers everywhere and recruiting them to join the team. Or to at least sign up for the We Are Justice Forever website for a chance to win prizes and stay up to date with movie news. (But that's what you use this website for.)
The video seen above features Battle Guy (Clark Duke) and Insect Man (Robert Emms) appealing to people whose parents were killed by muggers, and ex-cops who got tired of watching bad guys get away with their crimes. "Find your identity with us," is a pretty good sales pitch, and I'm looking around to see what I have that can be fashioned into a costume so I can go kick evil square in the balls, too.
Doctor Gravity (Donald Faison) wants your help, too.
Is it just me, or were you guys also ready for him to beat the shit out of that torso with his Zero-G Device? I feel kind of disappointed. Maybe my super power deals with moping. Maybe Kick-Ass (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) himself can get me out of this funk and into Justice Forever headquarters.
If you still aren't sure you want to see this movie when it comes out on August 16 - like if Jim Carrey's recent comments have swayed you - then give the film's trailer another watch.
