Moreover, the film is a period drama prequel, and not the ending to the pre-existing Harry Hart and Eggsy trilogy. Therefore, actors like Taron Egerton and Colin Firth will not be making appearances in the movie. But fear not, the true third film is coming, as Vaughn expects to shoot the sequel early 2020. Additionally, the characters in ‘The King’s Man’ may tie into the untitled ‘Kingsman 3.’

The premise of the prequel is below:

“As a collection of history’s worst tyrants and criminal masterminds gather to plot a war to wipe out millions, one man must race against time to stop them. Discover the origins of the very first independent intelligence agency, as the young, cocky and charming son of a British Duke, Conrad (Dickinson) eagerly finds a way to serve his country during World War I… and perhaps the Kingsman offer him just that opportunity.”

Further, this is only the start of the expanding ‘Kingsman’ universe. Vaughn is developing a ‘Statesman’ film based on the characters introduced in the second film ‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle.’ Also, a ‘Kingsman’ an eight-hour miniseries is on the way, which is “complementary to the movies but different enough, otherwise what’s the point?,” as said by Vaughn.
