That may make it a prequel, which explains Egerton's absence. Movies promoting Robin Hood and said, "I don't know how hot off the press this is, and I think I'm allowed to say it, but I'm not in the next Kingsman movie". The actor quickly confirmed that Eggsy would be sitting this installment out.

It was also a bit confusing, since Egerton noted the news doesn't mean he's completely done with the franchise. We're very much still in business together, it's just that his next journey in that universe doesn't involve me. That doesn't mean I won't be a Kingsman ever again.

Egerton says that he has chatted with Vaughn about the plot of the third movie and is impressed with what he's heard.

Egerton described the next film as "incredibly exciting" before again confirming that this is not the "last you've seen of Eggsy". Since Eggsy was the point-of-view character who introduced viewers to the world of Kingsman four years ago, and the hero who helped save the organization in last year's The Golden Circle, it was a bit of a shock to some fans who were eager to see what the character would do next.

And as a sweet end to her sweet gesture, Yahoo Lifestyle reported that Organo was promoted to Cabin Crew Evaluator on the flight. An advocate of breastfeeding, she offered her own milk to nourish the baby and lessen the worries of the infant's upset mother.

So Eggsy isn't in the next film quite simply because he won't have been born yet when it takes place. The most recent Kingsman film, The Golden Circle, ended with Eggsy getting married to a princess, which we assumed would create all kinds of new challenges for him. Egerton has exploded onto the scene since the first Kingsman film was released, and he's nabbed a few major roles as of late.

Beyond this month's Robin Hood, Egerton will be starring as Elton John in the upcoming Rocketman biopic.

So, look, these dots aren't hard to connect: if Egerton's not in the next Kingsman movie but will appear in Kingsman 3, it's likely that the next Kingsman will be the prequel, which is slated to open next November and (according to rumor) may or may not have Brad Pitt attached in some capacity.
