    Despite what TMDB's poster art shows right now, which they will make the image for this thread, Taron Egerton says he's not going to be in Kingsman 3 at all:

    I'm not so sure about this idea. The cast is a large part of the appeal of these films, Egerton in particular. I love Matthew Vaughn, but...we'll see. I'm not convinced.

    Neither am I. I thought the second film was a pale shadow of the first, which was great. This doesn't sound too promising, but who knows?

    Yeah, I don't see any Kingsman without Eggsy. Sounds like a Halloween III.

    Since this is a Fox property, there is also the question of whether Disney will proceed with the franchise, or not, once the acquisition is complete. The extremely violent nature of the first two doesn't mesh with Disney's brand. They could allow Fox to continue it anyway, but it's worth noting that it isn't entirely clear in what capacity Fox will function once it is a subsidiary and not its own fully autonomous studio. Last I heard, the deal is expected to close on January 1, so Disney will have their hands in this sooner rather than later.

    It's all speculation so I'm anticipating that Disney is going to continue with the Fox brand and allow their future film projects to continue as plan for the most part.

    Right. They could very well leave it alone. I'm just saying that nobody knows for sure what Disney is going to do until Disney actually gets in the picture. It would not surprise me if they allow Kingsman to continue, and it would also not surprise me if they didn't. If they didn't, perhaps it could get picked up by a different studio, like Hellboy made the jump from Sony to Universal (and now to Lionsgate for its reboot.)

    It would surprise me if Disney discontinues Fox from releasing their edgy/R titles under the Fox banner.

    I can’t imagine that Disney bought Fox to shut it down, or just to strip mine its intellectual property.

    Disney used to have Touchstone as an outlet to create films and attract talent that didn’t otherwise fit the Disney brand. It allowed them to capture more of the market, not less. With Fox, they’ll have that kind of outlet again.

    You and I are on the same page as Disney paid a lot of money to just strip mine it's intellectual properties.

    They still have Touchstone. They've just chosen not to use it because they don't do a bunch of mid-range films anymore. But they could dust it off and use it again anytime they so chose. The thing is that except for the odd inspirational sports drama or nature documentary here and there, everything that Disney does now is a major tentpole event films. If they allow Fox to continue producing films that are not that, it will represent a change in strategy from what Bob Iger has been shepherding for the last several years. I think it's highly likely that the scenario you're describing will play out, but I wouldn't call it a sure thing just yet. That's all I'm saying.
