When an attack on the Kingsman headquarters takes place and a new villain rises, Eggsy and Merlin are forced to work together with the American agency Statesman to save the world.
Kingsman 2 has finally been given an official title, with director Matthew Vaughn also treating fans to some cheeky plot teasers.
The spy spoof follow-up will be called Kingsman: The Golden Circle and see Taron Egerton’s Eggsy head state-side with Mark Strong’s Merlin to work for secret US spy society Statesmen.
Statesmen HQ is disguised as a whisky distellery and once there, Eggsy and Merlin will be tasked with defeating the villainous Poppy, played by Julianne Moore.
Halle Berry joins the cast as Statesmen leader Ginger and as for Colin Firth, it has finally been all-but-confirmed that he will return as suave agent Harry Hart.
The first poster showed Harry’s trademark glasses lying on a letter reading “Reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated”. Egerton shared the picture on Twitter and captioned it “A message from an old friend”, prompting fans to breathe a collective sigh of relief that more Harry and Eggsy action sequences must surely await. How Vaughn plans to bring Harry back remains a mystery at this stage, so here’s hoping it’s resolved logically.
