Colin Firth has been officially confirmed for the Kingsman sequel – he’s on the new poster.
Kingsman: The Golden Circle will see the first movie’s hero Eggsy team with the Statesmen – the Kingsman’s US counterparts, of course – to take on Julianne Moore’s evil Poppy.
Firth’s character was killed in the first outing, though an earlier poster appeared to suggest that he would return for the sequel. As well as Firth, Taron Egerton, Mark Strong, Sophie Cookson and Edward Holcroft all return, as well as new cast members Moore, Channing Tatum, Jeff Bridges, Halle Berry and singer Elton John.
Kingsman: The Secret Service introduced the world to Kingsman – an independent, international intelligence agency operating at the highest level of discretion, whose ultimate goal is to keep the world safe. In Kingsman: The Golden Circle, our heroes face a new challenge. When their headquarters are destroyed and the world is held hostage, their journey leads them to the discovery of an allied spy organization in the US called Statesman, dating back to the day they were both founded. In a new adventure that tests their agents’ strength and wits to the limit, these two elite secret organizations band together to defeat a ruthless common enemy, in order to save the world, something that’s becoming a bit of a habit for Eggsy…
Kingsman: The Golden Circle releases on September 29.
