Kingsman: The Secret Service is one of my favorite action films of all time. It had amazing action, a tongue-in-cheek tone, an incredible villain, and a hero I could get behind. It had all the makings for a classic flick in my eyes, so you could imagine my disappointment with Kingsman: The Golden Circle. The movie wasn’t awful, but if I had given the first Kingsman a nine out of 10, I probably would have given Golden Circle around a six, which is grounds for disappointment.
However, despite my disappointment, my worst fear was that the performance of the film would result in there being no third film — which is something I desperately wanted. Sure, director Matthew Vaughn didn’t give me what I wanted, but maybe third time’s the charm? Luckily, it sounds like I’ll be getting my wish and much more. Luckily for me, the sequel, while not nearly as well received, was only $4 million from matching the first one’s box office haul. I’ll take it!
According to Empire, who spoke with Vaughn about this, the third film is a go, and it will chronicle the end of the Harry Hart-Eggsy relationship. In addition to this film, there will be a spin-off called Kingsman: The Great Game, which will explore the organization in the early 1900s. This film will be shot back-to-back with Kingsman 3. Finally, there will be an eight-hour Kingsman TV series (I guess calling it a “limited series” would be fitting here). Had enough? Too bad. Last, but not least, there will be a Statesman film, which will follow the American agency — potentially the likes of Channing Tatum (who joined Kingsman at the end of the second film), Jeff Bridges, and Halle Berry.
Is that enough Kingsman for you? I will say, when all said and done, I’ll have nothing to complain about. I’ll have had my fill. But is it too much? Let us know your thoughts down below!
