Firth returns as Harry Hart in a picture shared by his ‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’ co-star Pedro Pascal.
After teasing Colin Firth’s return with a poster, “Kingsman: The Golden Circle” lets the cat out of the bag with this new set photo. The Oscar-winning actor, who has been widely believed to reprise his role as Harry Hart, is featured in the image shared by his co-star Pedro Pascal.
“Hide behind Harry. #SafePlace #Kingsman2 #TheGoldenCircle,” Pascal captions the picture which shows him standing behind Firth, who rocks a full Harry Hart attire complete with his signature glasses.
Harry was shot in the face by the villainous Valentine in “Kingsman: The Secret Service”, but a teaser poster released in April indicated that he survives after all. “Reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated,” read the words on the poster which also showed the character’s signature glasses with one of the lenses missing.
The sequel will see Gary “Eggsy” Unwin (Taron Egerton) and his supervisor Merlin (Mark Strong) heading to the U.S. to join forces with the “Statesman”, the Kingsman agency’s American counterparts, after Kingsman’s head quarter was destroyed by evil mastermind Poppy (Julianne Moore). Channing Tatum, Halle Berry, Jeff Bridges and Elton John are also in the cast.
Directed by Matthew Vaughn, “Kingsman: The Golden Circle” is slated for a June 16, 2017 release stateside.
