Kingsman: The Secret Service ended up being a surprise success last winter, filled to the brim with delightful spy banter, extravagant fight scenes, and handsome Savile Row suits  so successful that a sequel, Kingsman: The Golden Circle, is currently filming with a release date set for June of next year. The one shock that came from the original film's narrative, though, was the assumed death of Colin Firth's Kingsman agent Harry Hart, who was violently shot in the face by Samuel L. Jackson's psychopathic Richmond Valentine outside of a hate church in Kentucky. But wait! Will he be returning after all? Earlier this afternoon, Kingsman's lead trainee-turned-spy Taron Egerton posted a cryptic tweet that suggests Firth's character might actually be alive and well. The message from his old friend? "Reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated."

Nice glasses, chap. Now tell us how exactly you pulled that fake death off. (Our money's on bulletproof lenses equipped with a tiny machine that spews animal blood.)
