Major Kingsman: The Secret Service spoilers ahead:

Although Mathew Vaughn’s Kingsman: The Secret Service received an R rating and faced off against Fifty Shades of Grey during it’s theater run, it still managed to gross over $400 million at the worldwide box office, which led to 20th Century Fox greenlit a sequel to the highly acclaimed comic book adaptation.

One of the highlights of the movie was without a doubt Colin Firth’s Harry Hart, who died by the hands of Samuel L. Jackson’s villainous Valentine, following one of this year’s best action scenes. Vaughn who’s currently writing the sequel has expressed that he’d like to have Firth back in the follow-up, but how his character survived would be hard to explain due to the way he died in the movie.

Mark Millar who works as a creative consultant for Fox recently recently chatted with IGN, where the writer addressed the topic.

That’s the conversation everyone’s having right now, because part of what made that movie work is Colin. Colin’s fantastic, it was a two-hander, that film. You also want to have the integrity of the story, so if you are bringing him back, it has to make sense. That’s where it is at at the moment. Beats of the story have been done. [Screenplay co-writers] Matthew [Vaughn] and Jane [Goldman] are working on it at the moment. Some things have to be worked out, some decisions have still to be made and everything, so it’s all fairly amorphous, but all going well. It’s funny because there’s a lot of conversations like that, like should he have an evil brother, Colin with a mustache? Or is he a ghost or whatever? The guys have a plan. I can’t spoil it just now because the final decision is still to be made. It’ll be good.

Even Spielberg had made 1941 by his third movie, so I trust him. He’s done five good movies.

Would you guys like to see Galahad return from the dead in the sequel? Let us know in the comment section below!
