It’s official. Ace Ventura: Pet Detective has become a superhero. Of sorts. Jim Carrey, the Canadian rubber-faced comedian that starred in such hits as Liar, Liar and The Mask has been cast as The Colonel in Jeff Wadlow’s sequel to Matthew Vaughn’s Kick-Ass.

Kick-Ass 2: Balls to the Wall brings the costumed high-school hero Kick-Ass joins with a group of normal citizens who have been inspired to fight crime in costume. Meanwhile, the Red Mist plots an act of revenge that will affect everyone Kick-Ass knows. Meanwhile, the Red Mist plots an act of revenge that will affect everyone Kick-Ass knows.
