A grand total of seven Kingsman movies are reportedly in the works with Marv Group and director Matthew Vaughn. In 2015, Kick-Ass director Vaughn brought Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons' Kingsman comics to the big screen with The Secret Service. Centered on an elite organization of gentleman spies, The Secret Service starred Taron Egerton as the blue collared Eggsy and Colin Firth as his mentor Harry Hart. The movie was a hit at the box office and with critics, leading to the creation of a sequel. Both Egerton and Firth returned for Kingsman: The Golden Circle, which saw a downturn at the box office and its critical reception.
Nevertheless, the Kingsman universe continues to grow. A Kingsman 3 is currently in the works, though before that arrives, the franchise will get its own prequel spin-off. Currently scheduled for February 2021 after several delays, The King's Man takes audiences back to WWI and the creation of the Kingsman. It stars Ralph Fiennes, Gemma Arterton, Djimon Hounsou, Daniel Brühl, Matthew Goode, Charles Dance, Rhys Ifans, Tom Hollander, and Harris Dickinson. Beyond that, there were once reports of a Golden Circle spin-off centered on Kingsman's American counterpart, the Statesman.
Now it sounds like fans should expect far more than the aforementioned projects. While speaking to Deadline, Marv Group CEO Zygi Kamasa revealed Vaughn is developing "something like seven more Kingsman films" as the company begins to expand. Kamasa didn't share exactly what those movies could entail, only that they could be their own franchises. "We want to grow the business and the output," Kamasa said. "We have a Kingsman TV series in the works and there are two-three other franchises that are being developed alongside the Kingsman world."
At first glance, it sounds like Statesman could fill in one of those side franchises, and perhaps The King's Man will lead to its own sequel. However, that still leaves several projects just waiting for subjects. It's no surprise that more Kingsman movies are in development, but the sheer number of them is shocking. Though The Secret Service was a success, The Golden Circle was less so, and it remains to be seen how The King's Man will perform. Should it stumble upon arrival, Vaughn might end up altering his plans.
In the meantime, though, fans can certainly speculate about what those seven movies will be centered on. Perhaps one could be another prequel like The King's Man, but this time revisiting the early days of Harry's time with the Kingsman. Or perhaps another could focus on other active Kingsman agents beyond Eggsy. As with any franchise, the opportunities for expansion are endless provided one takes the time to think them up. The real question is: Will audiences react positively to these developments? Kingsman could end up being the next big shared universe, but it has to win over viewers to ensure its continued success. Maybe the next few efforts will be enough to pull back those who became wary after The Golden Circle.
