Just the other day we reported to you that Russian Body Builder Olga Kurkulina was rumored to be playing Mother Russia in the upcoming Kick-Ass 2 movie. Well now we have THREE! set pictures and a video of Mother Russia in action! Mother Russia is the roid-poppin’, ex-KGB bodyguard of Red Mist….er I mean The Motherf**ker, played by Christopher Mintz-Plasse.
As you can see, the Mother Russia costume has been altered from its comic counter-part, what other changes/surprises are we in for? Kick-Ass 2 goes Balls to the Wall next May!
Stay tooned 😛
These photos from the set continue to make the wait for “Kick Ass” even harder. Though I love seeing a glimpse of “Mother Russia,” she looks just as intimidating as I hoped she would. I have been discussing details of the movie with a co-worker at DISH who is obsessed with the comics. It has helped to learn more details about the new characters especially the anticipated “Justice Forever.” I have also been coping with the wait by re-watching the original with Blockbuster @Home. I love how easy it is to order the DVD through the mail, exchanging it in the store if I can’t wait. The characters look amazing so far, I can’t wait to see them in action as the heroes battle against what looks like a fierce group of new villains.
If you get a chance to read the comics before the new movie, I’d highly suggest it. If you don’t want to ruin the surprise of seeing the film in person though, I can tell you that you’re going to have a really fun ride with this new movie. At least, that’s what I’m hoping. I don’t really know much about the new director, I was a huge Matthew Vaughn fan, and felt he handled the first movie perfectly. Only time will tell though!
