Witness the Rise of the Civilized!
The King’s Man is an upcoming spy action comedy film. It is the prequel to Matthew Vaughn’s spy franchise which was brought to life in 2014 as Kingsman: The Secret Service and its sequel in 2017 Kingsman: The Golden Circle. The movie explores the bloody origins of the very first independent intelligence agency.
The movie, like the other movies of the franchise, is an adaptation of Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons comic book series, ‘The Secret Service’. Not being too presumptuous, but according to Vaughn, the Kingsman universe holds great promise for many more spin-offs in the future.
The King’s Man: Plot
The series is set around the dawn of the 20th century in Europe. As a collection of the world’s worst tyrants and criminal masterminds join hands to plot a war to wipe out millions, one man must race against time to put a stop to them. This leads to the formation of the very first independent intelligence agency and their efforts to spoil the plans of these villains. This time around, Ralph Fiennes and Harris Dickinson step into the shoes previously occupied by Colin Firth and Taron Egerton, and take over the position of the elder Kingsman and his latest recruit.

Who is in the cast?
The cast primarily consists of actors of British origin. The actual cast was not confirmed before the cameras started rolling and the filming was also kept a hush-hush affair. This set a mysterious background for the movie. Ralph Fiennes and Harris Dickinson will be the main protagonists of the story. While Rhys Ifans will play the antagonist of the story.
Apart from them, Matthew Goode, Gemma Arterton, Djimon Hounsou will also play some major characters in the movie. Tom Hollander, Daniel Bruhl and Charles Dance are also part of the cast of The King’s Man.
The King’s Man: Release Date
The movie was originally intended to hit theaters in November, last year, but was subsequently shifted to February, 2020, after Disney occupied 20th Century Fox. Then the release date was pushed even further. The new and confirmed release date of the movie is September 18, 2020.
