Maybe Jenny McCarthy didn't steal Jim Carrey's superpowers after all.
The rumors have been confirmed: Carrey will play The Colonel in "Kick-Ass 2: Balls to the Wall."
Right -- the merchandise should be interesting.
Director Jeff Wadlow tweeted the official news Wednesday, saying, "6 days till we start shooting ... and we officially have our Colonel. Alrighty f'n then!"
Geez, the mouths on these people ... .
Carrey will play The Colonel, a new superhero who helps lift the spirits of good guys Kick-Ass (Aaron Johnson) and Hit-Girl (Chloe Moretz) in the fight against crime.
Christopher Mintz-Plasse and Nicolas Cage are also returning for the sequel. Yes, Nicolas Cage's character did die in the first one. That doesn't matter -- this is Hollywood.
Matthew Vaughn ("X-Men: First class"), the original's director, will produce this time around with Wadlow directing.
Carrey has appeared in comic book adaptations before, namely the '90s hits "The Mask" and "Batman Forever." He'll next been seen alongside Steve Carell in "Burt Wonderstone."
"Kick-Ass 2: Balls to the Wall" will hit theaters June 28, 2013
