The First King’s Man

Following the success of the first two films in the Kingsman franchise, Matthew Vaughn is once again stepping in as director for a thrilling prequel. Kingsman: The Secret Service (2014) and Kingsman: The Golden Circle (2017) have been well received by spy-thriller fans. The upcoming film will be titled Kingsman: The Great Game, and is expected to be released on February 14, 2020. The writers and directors are meticulously shifting the focus to one of the most integral characters, the organisation itself. So, unfortunately for us, the beloved duo of Eggsy (Taron Egerton), and his tough-but-fair mentor, Harry (Colin Firth) will not be returning on screen this time. Nevertheless, Ralph Fiennes, Matthew Goode, and Harris Dickson are joining their ranks to tell the story of the birth of Kingsman. Fans are excited to cross the threshold to the past to see the new installation of the Kingsman franchise. Sources suggest that the events of the film will take place during the early 1900s, hinting at a World War I origin story. The film will follow one man in a battle against history’s worst tyrants, which will trigger the formation of the very first independent intelligence agency. Interestingly enough, after the first film, there had been no intention to follow it up with a sequel. Kingsman: The Secret Service is an adaptation of the Marvel comic of the same name, created by Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons. Vaughn and Millar worked closely on the film, and given that the comic book sequels were yet to be published, there was no talk of a sequel. It came as a surprise when Vaughn announced the project, Kingsman: The Golden Circle, kickstarting an effective departure from the comics. Fortunately, the success of the film franchise meant that very few disgruntled comic fans would be marching the streets in protest.
