Eggsy no more?
A television series is also coming up along with a third official film which will revolve around Eggsy (Taron Egerton), exploring their current adventures.
So you have the King’s Man coming, which is a prequel set around 100 years ago, and I’m not in it. But I do know some stuff about it, and it’s really, really exciting, it’s got an amazing cast and it’s an amazing story.
And then I think — I think, think, think — we’ll be doing the final chapter in the Harry and Eggsy trilogy next year, I think, yeah.” – Tom Egerton
However, the Kingsman star Tom Egerton is desperate to make a comeback after Rotten Tomatoes was critical of Kingsman: The Golden Circle.
That being said, “The King’s Man” is coming to the screen on February 14, 2020. Meanwhile, catch the teaser trailer of The King’s Man below and let us know what you think!
