How A Deleted Kingsman: The Secret Service Scene Got A Second Life


It's hard to imagine anything that got cut out from Kingsman: The Secret Service. The action spy flick isn't exactly known for pulling its punches, featuring moments like Colin Firth killing an entire church of bigots in gory fashion, President Obama's head exploding, and literally ending with a shot teasing butt sex. So, we can only hazard a guess at what didn't make the cut for the movie. But when it comes to one scene, we won't have to guess for long. According to star Taron Egerton, a previously cut scene from Secret Service will be making its way into Kingsman: The Golden Circle.

I think I can say that there's a deleted scene from the first one, that I personally thought shouldn't have been cut, and that's now in the second film. But what it is... I don't think I can say.

Taron Egerton chatted it up with Den of Geek, where he was asked a number of questions about Kingsman: The Golden Circle, the sequel to one of 2014's surprise hits. Egerton, who plays the new gentlemen spy Eggsy, was asked if any deleted material from the first movie could find a second life in the sequel. The Kingsman star obviously couldn't go into detail, but there was one scene he wished hadn't been cut, that will be in be in sequel.

That's pretty vague and the scene could be anything, but there is at least one hint to help us narrow it down and it all revolves around Elton John.

The first Kingsman film had no qualms about having plenty of pop culture references, most notably celebrity names. Celebrities play a big part in the over arcing scheme of that movie, and originally Elton John was featured as himself in an early draft of the script. He was even supposed to be involved during an action scene helping to save...someone. That cameo ended up not happening in the finished film, but Elton John is definitely going to be in The Golden Circle. Which leads us to wonder, is this cut Elton John scene is the mysterious second chance scene?

It's certainly a possibility given that the iconic singer-songwriter is involved with the sequel but the scene could be anything. If it were to be Elton John's sequence, it's highly likely that it won't be the exact same as it was in the first movie. We're assuming that John was one of the celebrities kidnapped by Samuel L. Jackson's villain for refusing to play ball with his plan to decrease the human population. In that case, he might have been involved helping Eggsy in the climactic final action sequence. That probably can't happen quite the same way in The Golden Circle, but as long as it still involves Elton John beating someone up, we're good.

Kingsman: The Golden Circle hits theaters on October 6, 2017.
