We’re still waiting to see how (or if) Matthew Vaughn will revive Colin Firth’s Harry Hart for his sequel to Kingsman: The Secret Service, but there’s another character who definitely will be making a rather unexpected return. And given who it is and how we last saw them, it’s pretty safe to assume that this particular character won’t be an ally to Taron Egerton’s Eggsy in Kingsman 2.

Before Deadpool, Fox had another R-rated comic book movie that was a surprise success on Valentine’s Day weekend. Kingsman opened in theaters on February 12 of last year to over $400 million worldwide and it didn’t take long before Kingsman 2 was greenlit at Fox. With many of the characters from the original not surviving for a sequel, director Matthew Vaughn has had to cast some new actors, and he’s already found his new villain. Julianne Moore has signed on to star in the film as the latest supervillain to terrorize Eggsy.

A villain that rivals the indulgent, maniacal wackiness of Samuel L. Jackson in Kingsman: The Secret Service? That’s a bold claim, but it’s one Taron Egerton is making as the actor teases what we can expect from Kingsman 2. Not only will the follow-up have a great villain, but the action won’t be confined to the U.K. as director Matthew Vaughn is taking young Eggsy international.

And in distinctively other superhero news, Matthew Vaughn’s Flash Gordon movie is picking up a bit of steam. After years of failed development, the project finally started to get somewhere when Vaughn signed on to direct last year, and although a couple of writers have already taken a pass at the screenplay, the hiring of I Am Legend and Oldboy scribe Mark Protosevich may prove a bit more fruitful.

This year’s sleeper smash Kingsman: The Secret Service ended with as much definitive resolution as an action movie could possibly have: the bad guy’s been bested, the world saved, and our hero retires to a Swedish princess’ private chamber for some butt stuff. But because the film pulled a staggering $413.3 million haul on its comparatively modest $81 million budget, a follow-up capitalizing on the spy homage’s unlikely success was all but assured. With director Matthew Vaughn and star Taron Edgerton both on board, the production has begun to move full steam ahead by setting a date of release for June 16, 2017.

Because the world contains a finite number of graphic novels written by Mark Millar, and because everyone’s gotta eat, money-in-the-bank filmmaker Matthew Vaughn is in the process of striking a deal with 20th Century Fox to direct a new project based on a fresh script that the studio purchased extra-specially for him.

A couple of weeks ago we learned that Fox was planning on moving ahead with the sequel to Kingsman: The Secret Service, with writer / director Matthew Vaughn currently working on the screenplay. There was just one tiny issue: Kingsman made a leading man out of Taron Egerton, and his commitment to starring in Robin Hood: Origins for Lionsgate was causing a bit of a conflict. It seems that the conflict has been resolved, but unfortunately for Lionsgate, their Robin Hood movie is going to have to wait.

Taron Egerton has become quite popular since his breakout role earlier this year in Matthew Vaughn’s Kingsman: The Secret Service, and while that’s great news for the actor and his fans, it’s a bit tricky for his scheduling, which has gotten a little complicated. And it’s Egerton’s popularity that’s causing a slight issue for Kingsman 2 as it prepares to head into production in the spring.
