The King’s Man is a prequel to Kingsman: The Secret Service and Kingsman: The Golden Circle and is set over a hundred years before the events of the first Kingsman film where Eggsy, played by Taron Egerton, is first recruited as a spy; therefore, Eggsy as well as Harry Hart, played by Colin Firth, and other Kingsman characters are not featured in this film.
Instead, The King’s Man follows British aristocrat Orlando, Duke of Oxford and how he both fought a collection of criminal masterminds plotting to wipe out millions through war and started the secret service organisation, Kingsman.
