‘Kingsman 2′ Image Teases The Return of a Beloved Character

After recently announcing its official title and cast, as well as giving new insight into the film’s premise, Kingsman 2: The Golden Circle, may be featuring the return of yet another beloved character from the original film, if this new tweet from its star is to be taken with any real weight or authority, that is.

Because despite seemingly confirming that he would not be returning for the film, Taron Egerton has just tweeted a new promo image for the highly-anticipated sequel, which feature a pair of glasses that fans will recognize as none other than Harry Hart’s, who was played by Colin Firth in the film, before he was unceremoniously shot in the face by Samuel L. Jackson’s villainous Valentine.

The glasses are even missing a lens where the bullet would have entered, but behind the glasses reads the text “Reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated,” which could only mean one thing right? Check out Egerton’s tweet below:

A message from an old friend, huh?

So while we probably can’t take this as official confirmation of Harry’s return, something that director Matthew Vaughn had previously expressed an intense desire to bring about, it’s nice to know that the possibility is still there at least.

With the film set to hit theatres next summer as well, with new villain and even larger, international scale than the first film, Eggsy and Merlin (Mark Strong) might just need all the help they can get this time around, and who better than Eggsy’s mentor? Who may or may not have died, we guess?

Kingsman: The Golden Circle will hit theatres on June 16th, 2017.

    I would love for Firth to return, and it actually makes sense. In the film, after Valentine shoots Harry, Gazelle asks Valentine if he’s going to check to make sure he’s dead. Valentine brushes her off with a comment about things getting shot in the face always being dead, but no one actually checks. I always considered that the in that they would need to bring him back.
