Is The Riddler gonna Kick-Ass?

Deadline is reporting that Jim Carrey (Dumb and Dumber, Batman Forever) is being courted by Universal for a role in Kick-Ass 2: Balls to the Wall.  Deadline is not sure whether Carrey will say yes.

The character Carrey is being courted for is named The Colonel, and Deadline says this about the character:

The character is called The Colonel, and he helps galvanize the team of misfit super heroes assembled to fight evil.

Screenrant says a little more about the character here:

Presumably, The Colonel is the same character as Colonel Stars, who appears in Mark Millar’s comic series as a former Mob lieutenant who turns to crime-fighting when he becomes is a born-again Christian.

Kick-Ass was a crazy, crazy comic book film.  If you haven’t seen it, I would highly recommend that you do.  Just don’t let your little ones watch it.  It is an adult, R-rated film that pulls no punches.  (Come on, a 12 or 13 year old assassin who slaughters mob guys?)

Kick-Ass 2 finds most of the cast returning including Chloe Moretz (Hit Girl), Aaron Johnson (Kick-Ass), Christopher Mintz-Plasse (Red Mist), and Nicholas Cage (Big Daddy).  I am curious how they bring back Cage . . .

Filming is set to commence next month.
