Kingsman 2 Poster Hints At Colin Firth's Return

Kingsman Golden Circle Colin Firth

After Matthew Vaughn's irreverent love letter to the spy films of yesteryear, Kingsman: The Secret Service, earned critical acclaim and grossed $414.3 million at the worldwide box office (on an $81 million budget), it became apparent that followups were in order. A sequel titled Kingsman: The Golden Circle is currently on track for a June 2017 release and will follow protagonist Eggsy (Taron Egerton) and Merlin (Mark Strong) on a globetrotting adventure that sees them team up with the American-based Statesmen (led by Halle Berry's character). Oscar winner Julianne Moore is said to be playing the film's villain.

The Kingsman series is quickly becoming known for star-studded ensembles, as the original featured heavy hitters like Samuel L. Jackson, Michael Caine, and Colin Firth. Even though Firth's Harry Hart was killed in the first Kingsman, the creative team spent some time trying to brainstorm a way to bring him back for the next one. Recently, it seemed like any hopes of Firth returning were kaput, but the latest bit of Kingsman 2 marketing strongly suggests otherwise.

Egerton took to Twitter to share a new poster for the upcoming film. Featuring a pair of the Kingsman glasses over the words "Reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated," it certainly looks like moviegoers will be seeing more of Hart in the near future. Egerton's caption sells the idea even further:
