Colin Firth Is Definitely Back For KINGSMAN: THE GOLDEN CIRCLE

We knew this, but now we REALLY know this.

The cat’s been pretty much out of the bag that Colin Firth would somehow return from the dead (or almost dead) in Kingsman: The Golden Circle. It seemed about as official as it can get when costar Taron Egerton tweeted a poster containing a pair of glasses with one darkened lens and the message “Reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated”.

Now more evidence in this non-mystery comes in the form of Pedro Pascal’s Instagram feed, which currently has a picture of the actor - one of The Golden Circle’s 1,000 exciting cast members - standing behind the one and only Colin Firth:

If any of you were holding out hope that the integrity of Harry Hart’s death would remain strong throughout the sequel, this is bad news. If any of you like really awesome things, this is good news. Either way, there seems to be no denying Colin Firth is part of a cast that reads like a GOAT list: Julianne Moore, Halle Berry, Pedro Pascal, Elton John, Jeff Bridges, Channing Tatum… this is going to be something special.
