New Kingsman 2 set photo brings Colin Firth back from the dead

Despite his premature death in Kingsman: The Secret Service, the return of Colin Firth's Harry Hart in Kingsman 2 was all but confirmed by Taron Egerton back in April. Now Game of Thrones star Pedro Pascal - who has snagged a role in the sequel - has taken to Instagram to make the news of Firth's return a little more official. 

Check it out below...

I'm happy that Firth is back as he was easily one of, if not the best aspect of the first Kingsman movie. I'm just hoping that Matthew Vaughn and co have found a semi-plausible way to bring Harry Hart back from the dead. I also have my fingers crossed for another Church-esque sequence of Firth kicking ass, because that was pretty special... 

Directed by Matthew Vaughn and starring Taron Egerton, Jeff Bridges, Pedro Pascal, Mark Strong, Halle Berry, Colin Firth, Elton John, Channing Tatum, and Julianne Moore, Kingsman: The Golden Circle will be released in cinemas on June 16, 2017.
