Kick-Ass 2 (Universal)

Aaron Taylor-Johnson’s cerebral approach to acting, especially when it comes to his work in Anna Karenina, Nowhere Boy, and Albert Nobbs is quite understandable, especially since all of these films (though each visually interesting in their own manner), are character driven pieces.

Taylor-Johnson approached his return as do-gooder Dave Lizewski in Kick-Ass 2 in the same manner. This time out he realized that reprising a role has its share of challenges.

“I go from a character, and then I erase it and just jump to something else,” said Johnson, who is reportedly signing onto The Avengers: Age of Ultron to play Quicksilver, the lightning fast mutant who’s also the son of Magneto. “Because I find that a lot easier. To go back to something and trying to make it feel like the same person is actually a lot harder than it seems.”

Kick-Ass 2 opens August August 16th.
