It cannot be overstated just how much of a surprise Kingsman: The Secret Service was. Coming off of the trailers, I was about as uninterested as one could possibly be, as they made the film seem more like a YA adaptation trying to be cool. Little did I know I’d be getting a fun, hyper-violent, super-cartoony film that was jam-packed with spy tropes and homages. In short, I gave it no credit.
That film ended up being one of my favorites for that year and is also one of those movies I find myself accidentally finishing whenever I throw it on for five minutes. While the second one, Kingsman: The Golden Circle, isn’t nearly as good, it still has that trademark Matthew Vaughn flair, and it’s hard to imagine anyone else ever directing it…but how does Vaughn himself feel about it?

Speaking with Screen Rant, the filmmaker opened up about the possibility.
“If the right person and the right subject matter and the right script and the right circumstances [came along], yes, I would. It would be hard, it would be very hard, but I would. I’d hand one rein over, probably, not two.”
Vaughn is understandably very protective of this property. Those who have been following him know he also directed Kick-Ass. There was a sequel to that other Mark Millar comic book adaptation, but it wasn’t nearly as well received…and you can’t help but wonder if this is the reason he’s clinging on to Kingsman for dear life.
