Hit-Girl Does Battle With Mother Russia in Red Band ‘Kick-Ass 2′ Featurette

Hit-Girl proves that she’d rather be dead than red in this new featurette from the creators of Kick-Ass 2, which goes behind the scenes of the teen superhero’s final battle with the imposing Mother Russia, Red Mist’s bodyguard. The (very NSFW) featurette chronicles the anatomy of a fight scene, which is particularly interesting when one opponent is a tiny sixteen-year-old girl, and the other is a 6’2” Russian bodybuilder.

Hit-Girl (the charming Chloe Moretz) is under the common teenage delusion that she is unstoppable, even when faced with a daunting enemy like Mother Russia (newcomer and real-life bodybuilder Olga Kurkulina). Moretz speaks about this with a wisdom beyond her 16 years – her character doesn’t understand why the enemy won’t “ughh just die already.”

All in all, it looks like it’s going to be a fun battle to witness on the big screen; Hit-Girl throws knives that Mother Russia simply pulls out of her arm like splinters. That’s pretty hardcore. But this seems like a climactic part of the movie, no? Maybe we could have kept this particular battle a secret for the time being. Check out the featurette after the break.

And here’s the full red band trailer from Comic-Con for inquiring minds.

During an interview, director Tommy Wiseau once called her a “good reporter, but not that intimidating if we’re being honest.” She once lived in Chinatown and told her neighbor Jake to “forget it” so many times that he threatened to stop talking to her.
