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.
