Donald Faison cast in Kick-Ass 2: Balls to the Wall. The casting of Donald Faison in Kick-Ass 2: Balls to the Wall answers the question of who will play Dr. Gravity in the Jeff Wadlow directed film. Dr. Gravity is a “the baseball bat wielding masked character who fights alongside Kick-Ass.”

More on Dr. Gravity:

Doctor Gravity is an English major who highlights as a superhero by night, working with Kick-Ass and Justice Forever. However, to the world at large he is a physics professor at Columbia who built a baseball bat-like pole called the “Gravity Pole” which can make something twenty times its actual weight. If he flips it around it allows him to float. In actuality though it is a baseball bat covered in tin foil and he came up with his backstory to make a statement about who he wants to be.

 On the storyline of Kick-Ass 2: Balls to the Wall (co-written Mark Miller):

The story will be similar to Superman 2 where someone finds out about the heroes’ identities — mostly Dave and Mindy. Dave’s identity as “Kick-Ass” is only revealed to one important person and it is said to have repercussions. Hit-Girl’s identity will be known by the general public and it gets her in to the awkward stage of society as it will cause a lot of people to make fun of her behind her back. Her problems cause her to be nicknamed “Captain Muffin-Muncher”. However — the worst of her problems will come from the highest of the anarchy of stuck-up girls — Brooke who is said the be the usual prissy stuck-up bitch who has a gang of followers that she can control (think Mean Girls?) who also manages to gain control of Lois (who will ultimately form a bond with Mindy). Eventually, Hit-Girl will get revenge against the band of girls in a spectacular fashion that will involve gadgetry, projectile vomiting and a lot of begging.

Kick-Ass 2: Balls to the Wall also stars Aaron Johnson, Chloe Mortez, John LeguizamoNicolas Cage, and Christopher Mintz-Plasse.
