Kick-Ass 2 has released a new image online, featuring Christopher Mintz-Plasse taking in his new outfit as would-be supervillain, The Mother Fucker.

The new image shows the man formerly known as Red Mist sporting a fetching new PVC number while crossing a pair of pistols over his chest in time-honoured badass tradition.

The presence of that skateboard in the background is also a nice touch, a welcome reminder that this murderous nutjob is still only a teenager despite it all.

The new film will see The Mother Fucker attempt to establish himself as the world's first supervillian, a goal that Kick-Ass, Hit-Girl and their pals at Justice Forever are determined to thwart.

Directed by Jeff Wadlow and co-starring Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Chloë Grace Moretz and Jim Carrey, Kick-Ass 2 will open in the UK on 14 August 2013.
