The spy’s out of the bag!
But we were wrong — because it looks like Colin Firth will officially be back to play suave secret agent Harry Hart!
Weirdly enough, the news wasn’t revealed by 20th Century Fox or by director Matthew Vaughn — but instead by Game Of Thrones alum Pedro Pascal!
The Oberyn Martell actor — who will be playing a sharpshooting cowboy named Jack Daniels — shared a photo with Firth from the set on Sunday, posting on Instagram:

Firth’s return has been speculated by fans for quite a while, ever since franchise star Taron Egerton shared a teaser photo on Twitter that heavily implied the return of the dapper spy.
In April, he posted:
Firth’s character was seemingly shot dead in the 2014 film, so it will be interesting to see how he comes back.
Either way, we can’t wait for Harry to correct Eggsy’s posture and kick some bad guy ass when Kingsman: The Golden Circle hits theaters next summer!
