Kick-Ass 2 Mother Russia Featurette Released

Kick-Ass 2 Trailer

With only a week remaining until the U.S. release of Kick-Ass 2, the promotional campaign is heating up.

Today, it's "yippie ki-yay, Mother Russia!" as the film's #2 baddie gets her own spotlight in a featurette from IGN Movies.

Mother Russia was, of course, a source of a lot of early speculation and the focus of many of the earliest photos of the set from the superhero action-comedy.

Played by Russian bodybuilder Olga Kurkulina, the character was created by Mark Millar and John Romita, Jr. as a means of giving Hit-Girl a worthy nemesis after she battered her way through all comers in the first film.

Keep your eyes peeled; later today, we'll be talking to some kick-ass talent ourselves.
