Director Matthew Vaughn has stated he wants to continue his action franchise, so what will the next Kingsman movie be? First released domestically on December 22nd, 2021, The King’s Man marks the third Kingsman movie to date, with Vaugn’s latest offering drawing a decidedly mixed critical reception. Yet these middling reviews have done little to dampen Vaughn’s, or indeed 20th Century Studios’, desire for more suave spy action, Kingsman 4 confirmed for release sometime in 2023.
Yet despite this wealth of potential options, the next Kingsman movie is confirmed to be Kingsman: The Blue Blood. Set for an expected 2023 release date. Kingsman: The Blue Blood will definitively serve as the conclusion of Harry Hart (Colin Firth) and Eggsy’s (Taron Egerton) tumultuous relationship. Although other plot details remain scant for now. Vaughn has also touted several stars to join in on the espionage action, with Dwayne Johnson and Mark Strong just two names floated to interact with the Kingsman service this time around.
Kingsman 4: Plot
After setting up the birth of the Kingsman organization in The King’s Man prequel, Kingsman: The Blue Blood will return to the present day. Set to directly follow the events of Kingsman: The Golden Circle, The Blue Blood will focus on Harry and Eggsy’s increasingly paternal bond while also likely bringing back Eggsy’s new wife Tilde (Hanna Alström), and the U.S. agent Tequila (Channing Tatum) who joined the Kingsman service at the end of The Golden Circle after recovering from his wounds. While other plot details remain few and far between, Vaughn has confirmed Kingsman: The Blue Blood will be the last linear Kingsman movie, hinting at a climactic and engrossing finale for the franchise’s first film series.
Outside of Kingsman: The Blue Blood‘s plot, the upcoming Kingsman movie already has several big names linked with the project. As aforementioned, Kingsman‘s Colin Firth, Taron Egerton, Hanna Alström, and Channing Tatum are all set to reprise their previous roles from The Golden Circle. Franchise director Vaughn has also not been shy about his desire to see Dwayne Johnson take on an unnamed role as The Blue Blood‘s primary villain, while there has also been talk of Mark Strong reprising his role as Hamish Mycroft/Merlin, although quite how this would be accomplished remains to be seen given his demise via landmine at the end of The Golden Circle.
Kingsman: The Blue Blood is set to be a rip-roaring conclusion to the Harry and Eggsy timeline as the next Kingsman movie in 2023.
According to a recent report, production on King’s Man 4 will begin in September 2022. If filming for the fourth King’s Man movie begins as planned in September 2022, with no delays due to the pandemic or other issues.
King’s Man 4’s release date should be set for mid-September 2023 when a theatrical release has been set by 20th Century Pictures, a date that coincides perfectly with the production deadlines and which saw the release of King’s Man 2.
