Every wannabe Superman needs his Lois Lane, and Aaron Johnson‘s Kick-Ass will be reunited with his love interest as Lyndsy Fonseca tells her official website that she will be reprising her role as Katie Deauxma in “Kick-Ass 2″, along with original cast members Johnson, Chloe Moretz and Christopher Mintz-Plasse.
Fonseca shares: “It’s a small part because of [The CW series] “Nikita”, but I’m in it, I start shooting in September.” In the 2010 Matthew Vaughn directed “Kick-Ass”, Johnson played Dave Lizewski, an ordinary teenager and comic book fan who decides to become a real life superhero, giving himself the moniker Kick-Ass. He was aided by the foul-mouthed and highly trained Hit-Girl, played by Moretz, and longed for pretty classmate Katie. Unlike her much crueler counterpart in the comics, Fonseca’s Katie was much kinder and ultimately became romantically involved with Dave after he reveals his superhero alter-ego to her. Jeff Wadlow will direct the sequel from a script he wrote. Nicholas Cage is also expected to return to make a cameo appearance as the villainous Big Daddy.
The almost-Katniss Fonseca also appeared in “Hot Tub Time Machine” but sticks mostly to TV roles, including “Nikita”, just picked up for a third season, in which she plays Alex, and the concurrently running “How I Met Your Mother”, in which she sometimes appears as the daughter to which Future Ted is telling the long-winded version of how he met her mom.
