With filming set to wrap in a couple days for Kick-Ass 2, traffic came to a standstill this evening as filming blocked-off one of Toronto’s busiest strips between Eaton Centre and Yonge x Gould. Onlookers gave Canadian Funnyman Jim Carrey a Hero’s Welcome Home as he appeared barely recognizable as Colonel Stars, filming scenes with Co-Star Aaron Johnson who stars as the titular Protagonist. Also on- set tonight were Robert Emms who stars as Insect Man and Oakville’s Lindy Booth as Night Bitch.

Kick-Ass 2 promises to continue the epic Feud between Kick-Ass and Red Mist (Christopher Mintz-Plasse) as the latter vows to torture everyone associated with Kick-Ass in this Sequel. Stars John Leguizamo and Chloë Moretz (who has been here all Summer filming Carrie) just wrapped the other day, already having head home.
Watch a couple short Snippets I took of Carrey and Johnson interacting earlier:
Universal Pictures will be releasing Kick-Ass 2 in Canada on August 16, 2013.
