Will Colin Firth Return for ‘Kingsman 2’?

Be warned, if you didn't watch Kingsman: The Secret Service this weekend, there will be a BIG SPOILER below, so read on at your own risk. Even though the adaptation of Mark Millar's comic book came in second place to box office juggernaut Fifty Shades of Grey, Kingsman: The Secret Service still took in an impressive $35.6 million over the weekend. While a sequel hasn't been officially green lit by 20th Century Fox yet, writer-director Matthew Vaughn revealed in an interview with USA Today that Colin Firth's Harry Hart may still come back for the follow-up. The SPOILERS begin now, so here's your last chance to stop reading.

While we have no official word on whether or not Kingsman 2 is actually happening, Matthew Vaughn certainly seems to be trying to bring this project to life. It remains unclear if he will be back to direct or write the sequel at this time, but given the early box office success of Kingsman: The Secret Service, the sequel could become a top priority for 20th Century Fox. Would you like to see Colin Firth's Harry Hart come back? Or would you rather see Taron Egerton's Eggsy be the main focus? Let us know what you think, and stay tuned for more updates on Kingsman 2.

Finally, they practice the formal greeting of the 'German Aristocrat', which reveals a quit cleverly hidden knife.
