Matthew Vaughn Confirms Plans For Kingsman 2
- confirms he's currently writing the sequel
- "If I think I can get the script good enough, then we are making it. We are doing our damndest to make that happen."
- hinted that there might be a new addition to the Kingsman team, alluding to an American agent appearing in the (proposed) sequel
Taron Egerton on Colin Firth, girls and spies he'll snog, marry or avoid
- Colin is a bonafide of ladies man
- thinks lakes are good in wooing girls coz there's an opportunity to do Mr Darcy
- Snog, Marry, Avoid question on Jason Bourne, James Bond and Eggsy (his reasoning are hilarious tbh)
In an interview with BT.com, Egerton said he wanted to see the continuation of Eggsy's character arc, as well as his relationship with Mark Strong's character.
“I would like to see him presented with new problems, both global and personal, and see how he overcomes them. The relationship between Merlin (Mark Strong) and Eggsy is one I’d like to see taken further. There’s a bit of banter between them and I think that’s something you could push further. I’d also like to see Mark Strong jumping around and firing guns in his Kingsman style if this hypothetical sequel happens."
- Reveals his favourite Kingsman scene to shoot: the gadget room scene with Colin Firth.
"I’m in that hideous costume that Matthew Vaughn put me in because it’s a very clever scene, very witty and fun."
Taron Egerton as Wolverine?
Since Hugh Jackman finally retired from playing the iconic character, there are questions on who will chosen to play the character in the future. Taron Egerton, who was rumored to play Cyclops in X-Men: Apocalypse before the role went to Tye Sheridan, answered the question on whether he ever considered playing the role.
[Laughs] I am a huge X-Men fan! My feeling about that is… I don’t know if I’m quite grizzly enough. My facial hair is still very thin and patchy. I feel someone who plays Wolverine potentially needs testosterone in abundance. Yeah, I’d love to have a go at it, but I don’t know. [Laughs] I don’t know. I was with Hugh the day that he announced his retirement from that role. I did joke about that very thing with him. But the phone hasn’t rang yet, my friend, so I don’t know.
When being asked by mtv.com on going to the superhero route;
I’m not sure that I want my life to consist of Hollywood franchises, to be honest. There are other types of work that I’m interested in, like theater and just more serious drama and I just don’t know, you know, because it’s a huge weight of responsibility that comes with films like that, with publicity and stuff.
I would absolutely love to, one day, but for me with all of this that happened so quickly, you know, one year you’re a struggling actor, then you’re in a frame for something like Cyclops, that is quite a leap. I don’t want too much too soon, really. I just need to kind of make sure I’ve got a little bit of time to be little old me from Aberystwyth. I don’t have much desire to move to LA much yet. I don’t think you can expect it any time soon, but who knows what can happen in the future.
From The Hamilton Spectator:
Talks about his relationship with Colin Firth
- thinks Colin is amazing and they're still good friends.
- felt they're really bonded making Kingsman and they had fun promoting it (yeah, we can tell from those love-struck looks of yours)
- the type of film was very news experience for them so they went through all that physical side together, comparing notes and laugh at each other
- "He's totally amazing. I can't say enough lovely things about him."
On whether he ever see himself as an action hero
- He never did because he was never a particularly athletic teenager or someone who was very interested in sports.
"I was always kind of quite creative and arty, and probably a little bit sensitive really. So no, the idea of me playing an action hero was quite strange."
- says he enjoyed the experience and would do it again in a heartbeat.
