‘Kingsman 2’ Will Go International, Taron Egerton Teases a Villain to Rival Samuel L. Jackson

Taron Egerton
20th Century Fox

A villain that rivals the indulgent, maniacal wackiness of Samuel L. Jackson in Kingsman: The Secret Service? That’s a bold claim, but it’s one Taron Egerton is making as the actor teases what we can expect from Kingsman 2. Not only will the follow-up have a great villain, but the action won’t be confined to the U.K. as director Matthew Vaughn is taking young Eggsy international.
