Taron Egerton has played some seriously notable roles over the past few years, including Sir Elton John in Rocketman, while he's also set to star in the upcoming Tetris movie.


However, he is still perhaps best-known for his role as Gary 'Eggsy' Unwin in the Kingsman franchise, having appeared in both Kingsman: The Secret Service in 2015 and Kingsman: The Golden Circle in 2017. We haven't heard much on his role in the series since then, but now it seems, he may be gearing up for another adventure.

Egerton spoke with RadioTimes.com and other press at the Newport Beach Film Festival UK, and when asked whether he would ever return to the Kingsman universe, he said: "Do you know what, I would. I think I would if I felt that it had a really great story and a great arc for him.

"I really don’t want to just go and do six months of fighting. I really don’t. People love it – it’s exhausting, it’s just not stimulating for me."

He continued: "I would like to see... if we go back and visit Eggsy, which might happen apparently, I think I want to know what being in that world for 10 years does to your head and I want to see him change.

The Golden Circle wasn't the last we saw of the Kingsman universe - the latest film in the franchise was prequel The King's Man, which starred Ralph Fiennes as the titular agency's founder and was set predominantly during the First World War.

Last year Egerton was seen in the Apple TV+ series Black Bird, in which he worked alongside the late Ray Liotta in one of his final roles - an experience that Egerton told RadioTimes.com was "emotional".
