Jim Carrey backs away from “Kick-Ass 2,” AFTER he finished it

Jim Carrey, who has been outspoken in his criticism of the NRA and gun enthusiasts since the Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings, has decided that maybe making a violent action comedy before that tragedy wasn’t the best idea.

He tweeted that he won’t be promoting “Kick-Ass 2,” because he’s “had a change of heart.”

Carrey is in desperate need of something resembling a comeback — reduced to supporting roles, with big star vehicles a thing of the past. “Kick-Ass 2,” if it’s like the first film, makes light of violence even as it tries to show that there’s no such thing as a “Super” hero, and that bullets, beatings and stabbings can stop the bravest of vigilantes.
