The original Kick-Ass was one of the most surprisingly (and outrageously) satisfying films of 2010. It riffed on what seemed like a cookie-cutter comic book plot, unabashedly drenching it in expletives, fantastical violence and, erm, Nicholas Cage.

(Though its sequel is lacking in Cage, we're pleased to report that Jim Carrey is a more than sufficient consolation prize.)

In the midst of its pre-release hype (and controversy)Esquire sat down with Kick-Ass himself, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, to talk about the bloodiest, sweariest sequel of the summer.



Kick-Ass 2 is out Friday 16 August. Check back on esquire.co.uk for our release-day reaction.
