'Kingsman' Sequel Teaser Image Suggests Death Is Not the End
- With more than a year to go before its release, Taron Egerton took to Twitter Thursday to release a new teaser image for Kingsman: The Golden Circle, suggesting that the world hasn't seen the last of Harry Hart. Egerton tweeted the image — which features the famous Mark Twain misquote, "Reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated," beneath a pair of glasses worn by Hart, Colin Firth's character in the first Kingsman — with the caption, "A message from an old friend."
Whether this means that Firth's Hart definitely survived his shooting by Samuel L. Jackson's Richmond Valentine in the first movie, or just that someone in the movie wants to make that appear to be the case is likely to remain unclear for awhile longer, of course. Regardless of the possibility of Firth reprising his role in The Golden Circle, the second movie in the series based on the Mark Millar/Dave Gibbons comic book will definitely see Egerton and Mark Strong return, alongside new arrivals Halle Berry and Julianne Moore. Berry will play the head of the U.S. equivalent to the Kingsmen, the Statesmen, while Moore is expected to play the villain of the piece. Directed by Matthew Vaughn, Kingsman: The Golden Circle will be released June 16, 2017.
