Here's Where You Can Watch Kick-Ass 2

Based on the comic book of the same name by Mark Millar and John Romita, Jr., 2010's "Kick-Ass" is a hit movie that was truly at the start of the R-rated dark superhero genre. Starring Aaron Taylor-Johnson as Dave Lizewski, "Kick-Ass" follows the teenager as he sets out to become a real-life superhero named, you guessed it, Kick-Ass. Unfortunately, he sets his sights too high, and is completely unprepared when he comes up against crime boss Frank D'Amico (Mark Strong) and his son Chris D'Amico, or Red Mist (Christopher Mintz-Plasse). Luckily for Dave, he is taken under the wing of two other vigilantes — a former cop who goes by the name Big Daddy (Nicolas Cage) and his 11-year-old daughter, the deadly, foulmouthed Hit-Girl (Chloë Grace Moretz). The film was a big hit, earning a 76% on Rotten Tomatoes, and soon enough a sequel film, "Kick-Ass 2," was announced. 

"Kick-Ass 2" features the return of Taylor-Johnson, Moretz, and Montz-Plasse, along with a handful of new actors in various roles. A few major additions to the cast include Donald Faison as Doctor Gravity, Daniel Kaluuya as Black Death, and of course, Jim Carrey as Colonel Stars and Stripes. The story takes place two years after "Kick-Ass," with Red Mist becoming a supervillain and gathering a team of others like him to find Kick-Ass and get revenge for his father's death. Intending to be a real hero this time, Kick-Ass trains and joins a superhero team called Justice Forever, led by Colonel Stars and Stripes. What follows is a bunch of violent action and fight scenes, as Kick-Ass, Hit-Girl, and the other wannabe vigilantes try to stop D'Amico and his goons. 

For people who haven't seen "Kick-Ass 2" yet or are looking to re-watch the film, here are a handful of places you can find the superhero-focused dark comedy now. 

How you can check out the R-rated vigilante action movie

In order to stream the action-packed movie "Kick-Ass 2," you're going to have to head on over to Peacock Premium. The new streaming service for NBC currently has a three-tier price structure. There's a free version of Peacock, which has ads and a smaller catalog of movies and television to watch. But there's still plenty on offer, like current hits "This Is Us," "New Amsterdam," and "Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist," along with a huge amount of classic TV shows. In order to access some other offerings from Peacock, including "Kick-Ass 2," you have to move up to one of two paid plans. For $4.99 per month for Peacock Premium, you get the full catalog of shows and movies, but with ads. For $9.99 a month for Peacock Premium Plus, you get everything available to watch and no ads, along with a few more perks. 

Unfortunately for fans of "Kick-Ass 2," Peacock is the only streaming platform that the movie is currently on, and even then, you have to have a paid subscription. If you don't think you'll benefit from buying Peacock Premium and only want to watch "Kick-Ass 2," you can always buy or rent the film digitally. There are many sites that offer the film for a small fee, which honestly might be a smarter financial choice than Peacock for some viewers. Right now, "Kick-Ass 2" is available to rent on Amazon, YouTube, Google Play, Vudu, and a few more, including AMC Theatres on Demand. It's generally around $3.99 to rent for a 30-day period, but once you start watching, you have to finish the film within 48 hours. If you consider buying the movie digitally, make sure to look around at different options, as prices vary from around $11.99 to $14.99.
