Taron Egerton confirms that he will not return as Eggsy for the next Kingsman movie. After successfully launching the 2014 franchise, director Matthew Vaughn has been looking for expanding the universe based on Mark Millar IP. Unfortunately for fans and Egerton does not include the charming secret topic.
Egerton became the latest sought-after young star starring as Eggsy in Kingsman: The Secret Service . He has done his best to diversify his roles with Eddie Eagle or the upcoming Elton John biopic, but returned as Eggsy last year Kingsman: The Golden Circle . Although the critical reception was not good, the film still worked well on the box office and gave Fox and Vaughn enough confidence to continue mining this world for new stories. The plan seemed to be for Kingsman 3 to film early next year, followed immediately by prequel Kingsman: The Great Game . It was alleged that prequel characters could appear in flashbacks, while Eggsy and Harry Hart (Colin Firth) could remain the stars.

Something seems to have changed as franchise star Taron Egerton says he will not appear in the next Kingsman movie. This was revealed in an interview with Yahoo during the Egerton press release for his next action film, Robin Hood . As shocking as it may be to learn the next part of the franchise will be without the protagonist, Egerton argues that Eggsy’s adventure continues.
I do not know how hot this is from the press, and I think I & # 39; I was told, but I’m not in the next Kingsman movie. That does not mean I’ll never be in Kingsman again. I was with Matthew [Vaughn] as little as a few days ago, we are still very much on business together, but his next trip in that world does not involve me … His idea for the new one is incredibly exciting. I’m sorry I will not be on that trip with him, but it’s not the last thing you’ve seen of Eggsy.
The most logical explanation to Eggsy not shown in the next Kingsman movie is that the next movie will be The Great Game and not Kingsman 3 . The first two films are rotated in Eggsy and Harry’s relationship, so it would be a great surprise to see them hack half the duo – especially if the one released is Egerton. If this is what happens to the franchise, it was recently announced November 2019, the actual date of publication for The Great Game instead of Kingsman 3 as previously thought.
Based on the news roll around The Great Game preceding the plans, it is not surprising to leave Eggsy out. It was previously reported that the sequel recruited Harris Dickinson to the star and that Ralph Fiennes would also play an important role. Recent rumors pointed out that Rachel Weisz and Brad Pitt were also eyes of roles. All these roles are filled and the prequel setting can easily give meaning to Eggsy’s absence.
With The Great Game potentially which appears to be next up, Egerton will probably not be the only Kingsman star not to return. Although Vaughn’s plans have not been officially announced, it seems unlikely that Harry or any of the statesmen would also appear. As Egerton at least regrets Eggsy’s return, we hope to see what’s after the 19659002 Kingsman star before it’s too late.
