‘Kick-Ass 2’ Gets a Magical New Villain

Andy Nyman

Red Mist won’t be the only problem that our hero will have in Kick-Ass 2: Balls to the Wall. A character named “The Tumour” will be in the fray, a part of Red Mist’s gang of supervillains called — we kid you not — The Toxic Mega-Cunts. British actor Andy Nyman has joined the production for the role, getting himself linked up with Mark Millar’s most ridiculously named baddie boy band.

Nyman’s casting was confirmed via his official website, with Bleeding Cool filling in the gaps.

You may know Nyman from his work in films such as Severance, Death at a Funeral and Black Death. He’s also known throughout his home country as an accomplished magician and his various television roles.

Kick-Ass 2: Balls to the Wall will see the return of Aaron Johnson, Christopher Mintz-Plasse and Chloe Moretz reprise their roles from the original Matthew Vaughn-directed film. The Jeff Wadlow-directed sequel are franchise newcomers John Leguizamo (as one of Red Mist’s bodyguards), Donald Faison (as superhero Dr. Gravity) and Morris Chestnut (as Hit-Girl’s guardian Marcus Williams), with the likes of Jim Carrey in the rumor-mill.

Universal has this one on the calendar for June 28, 2013.
