Kingsman: The Secret Service was no doubt one the biggest box-office hits of the last year, breathing new life into the spy-genre and making an unexpected action-star out of Academy Award-winning actor Colin Firth overnight.
Much to everyone’s dismay however…
***WARNING SPOILERS AHEAD***
…Colin Firth‘s bad-ass character met an untimely demise towards the end of the film, leaving audiences wondering exactly how they could ever make a successful sequel without the superstar.
Alas, it appears hope is on the horizon for fans of the British spy franchise – Kingsman creator Mark Miller, the man behind the original comic, recently hinted that the resurrection of Firth’s character was their primary concern when penning the sequels script. Speaking to IGN, Miller spoke of the work going on behind the scenes with director Matthew Vaughn:
Though the exact details of how Firth’s character will return are yet to be cemented, there are numerous options for the writers to play around with, and they promise that whatever is decided, it will make sense.
Of course Colin Firth is yet to even confirm any potential return, but with his unquestionable star power one of the key driving factors behind the first installments critical and commercial success, studio execs will be surely be preparing an offer to good to refuse.
