The King's Man will report for duty a little later than intended.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Kingsmen prequel has been pushed back seven months, from February to September 2020. The movie was originally scheduled to arrive on this upcoming Valentine's Day. The film's move was announced after the studio set five new release dates for Marvel Studios films, which will hit theaters in 2022 and beyond.
The third film in The Kingsmen franchise, The King's Man will serve as a prequel to the first two films. It will follow Ralph Fiennes' Duke of Oxford as he forms a secret intelligence agency to stop a collection of evil masterminds from killing millions.
Vaughn directed the original Kingsmen and its sequel, Kingsmen: The Golden Circle. It is unclear if any of the original cast members will appear in the prequel. However, given the time difference between the two, it is highly unlikely.
Directed by Matthew Vaughn, The King's Man stars Ralph Fiennes, Gemma Arterton, Rhys Ifans, Matthew Goode, Tom Hollander, Harris Dickinson, Daniel Brühl, Djimon Hounsou and Charles Dance. The film is slated to release September 18, 2020.
