Chloe Moretz reprises her role as ‘Hit Girl’ in Kick Ass 2.

Chloë Grace Moretz touched off a debate about sexualizing pre-teens when she starred in the 2010 film “Kick Ass.” Now she’s 15 and back in “Kick-Ass 2.” She’s badder than ever, according to a new red-band trailer.

Moretz reprises her role as the foul-mouthed Mindy McCready, aka “Hit Girl,” a self-made superhero whose karate chop is as sharp-edged as her tongue.

Chloë got into hot water for uttering the word c*nt in the first movie along with a lot of other salty language. She’s just as sweetly vulgar in the new trailer, which premiered today on MTV.

“Act like a bitch, get slapped like a bitch,” she says in the opening moments of the clip. You get the picture.

Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Christopher Mintz-Plasse also reprise their roles as David “Dave” Lizewski, aka “Kick-Ass,” and Chris D’Amico, aka “The Mother F*cker,” who sets out to be the first super villain.

The sequel plays off the first film. After inspiring a new generation of superheroes, Dave and Mindy retire. But Red Mist (D’Amico), decides to follow in his late gangster father’s footsteps and avenge his death as a newly minted super villain.

Missing from the picture is Nicholas Cage, who added some comedic edge as Damon Macready, “Hit Girl’s” father and a police officer who joins the group as “Big Daddy.”

In the sequel, Jim Carrey steps into provide the edge as superhero Colonel Stars and Stripes, although he’s barely recognizable.

Moretz is only a year older than her character in the film, told MTV earlier this year her character would gain some depth and also question her motivation and dual identity. Whether being a little older softens the shock of her character remains to be seen.
