Christopher Mintz-Plasse is on villain duties as his Red Mist character aims to avenge the death of his father by forming an evil gang and becoming The Motherfucker. The extent to which Butler’s parent character will feature in the storyline is unknown.
Faison, best known to audiences as Turk in Scrubs, is set to star as Dr Gravity. He is a copy writer during the day who moonlights as the leader of a superhero group featuring many jaded people inspired to become heroes by the actions of Kick-Ass.
