Surprising his many followers on Instagram, the beloved Lion King composer posted an image showing a poster for the film. Poking fun at the first poster for the movie, the image shows a pair of John’s trademark glasses sitting on top of text that reads “Wednesday night’s alright for fighting,” a play on his song “Saturday Night’s Alright For Fighting.”
Making note of the fact that it will be his first time appearing on the big screen in decades, John commented “It’s been a long time since Tommy,” in reference to his iconic performance as the Pinball Wizard in the 1975 musical based on The Who rock opera of the same name:
Taron Egerton returns as Eggsy with Mark Strong reprising the role of Merlin for the upcoming film. Halle Berry is appearing as the head of the CIA, Pedro Pascal as a character conveniently named “Jack Daniels,” with Channing Tatum, and Julianne Moore in talks to play the film’s central villain. Edward Holcroft is also set to appear in the film, though whether he will reprise as his character from the first is unclear.
Matthew Vaughn returns to write and direct Kingsman: The Golden Circle, which sees Eggsy heading to the United States where he’ll meet his match in a “swaggering, sharpshooting cowboy.”
