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.
