Recently we have heard a bit of controversy as to Taron Egerton, and whether or not he will appear in another Kingsman film. Based on what he’d said originally, our editor-in-chief speculated that the film he was talking about wasn’t really Kingsman 3 but Kingsman: The Great Game, which is a prequel set during World War I. Now, it looks like we have a bit of confirmation that will indeed be the case.
Egerton tells fans to worry not, that the prequel installment is going to be a nice addition to the franchise and that he would be onboard to return for a third film (to clarify, not the third film in the series, but a third film for him). Below is what Egerton told Yahoo! Entertainment.
“Even in the Kingsman universe, where anything goes, unless we can develop a time machine in the first act of the movie, I’m not going to be in it. The idea for the film is really cool. It’s more of an origin story, like the first one. I am contractually obliged to be game for it. But I’m very proud of my relationship with Matthew Vaughn. I’m very proud of the movies. … All jokes aside, I would love to come back and do a third one and wrap it up.”
I enjoy the franchise as well as the cast. I found it to be a new enough take on the spy genre to make it interesting. I have no issues with a prequel being thrown into the middle of the films’ sequence, though I would like to see Egerton return to close out the series.
