[Kingsman: The Secret Service](tag:713143) was easily one of the best films of 2015 so a sequel was no surprise. The sequel will be titled Kingsman: The Golden Circle and will follow our protagonist Gary "Eggsy" Unwin, and his ally Merlin as they join the Statesman. The Statesman are basically the United States version of the Kingsman and will in some way aid Eggsy in the sequel. A sequel to Kingsman is one I cannot wait for and production is soon to begin and with that rumors start circulating. The rumors usually deal with casting and names like Elton John have been thrown around but one casting might have been confirmed already.
The latest addition to the Kingsman franchise is none other than Channing Tatum who announced it over his Twitter!
If that isn't a confirmation of being in the movie then I don't know what is but rest assured Tatum is in the movie. The big question on everyone's mind is of course will this be a big role or just a minor cameo type of deal. A big theory circulating is that Tatum might in fact be playing one of the Statesman that will be introduced in the film. The link to this is what the poster Tatum tweeted say and is as follows "My momma always told me the British gave us Southerners our good manners."
I mean that would clearly scream out that Tatum is in face playing a southern Sateman but we shouldn't jump to conclusions just yet. It's not clear as of yet what role Tatum will have but it's safe to say he is a good choice for the film. Channing Tatum has proven himself time and time again how versatile he can be as an actor.
I mean just last year he was in The Hateful Eight and although his role was minimal he made it work. The other times we have seen Tatum as well are in the Jump Street franchise and Magic Mike where he blends comedy with action very well. We are all aware how flawlessly Kingsman does this as well so its no surprise he would be in the film. The film also has other casting choices that have to be confirmed including Julianne Moore, Halle Berry and Pedro Pascal. There is also the talk that Colin Firth is set to return in some way or form. In the meantime we will just have to wait and see who exactly Tatum is playing but in the world of spy movie things can change drastically.
