The folks over at Newsarama have scored some first look images from the upcoming adaptation of Mark Millar’s Kick-Ass, which is currently in production in Toronto. The story follows Dave Lizewski, played by Aaron Johnson and seen above and below, a high school student who decides to become a superhero despite no actual powers or formal training. Recent set visits by various outlets across the web have revealed that the Matthew Vaughn-directed film will keep with the dark, violent nature of the book — something that should play well with fans.

Have a look at Aaron Johnson in costume below:

Kick-Ass also stars Nicolas Cage, RocknRolla and Body of Lies star Mark Strong, Superbad’s Christopher Mintz-Plasse and Dirty Sexy Money’s Chloe Moritz. It does not have an official release date yet, but is expected to hit theaters sometime in the second half of 2009.
