Since January 31, new spies have been rampant on the big screen. After having dynamited the genre with its adaptation of The Secret Service, Matthew Vaughn devotes a film to new protagonists. Elly Conway is a successful novelist. For several years, she has brought to life through her pages a fearless and blameless hero called Argylle. After the publication of the fourth volume, she decides to visit her mother. On a train, however, she will have an encounter that will change the course of her life. A spy reveals to her that all the events she describes in her novels also take place in real life. This Nostradamus of espionage soon attracts the attention of a mysterious criminal organization, determined to make her write the sequel.

If this heroine has no kinship or any connection with the characters of Kingsmanthe post-credits scene cultivates the mystery as to what happens next for Elly…
A few months ago, Matthew Vaughn confided that he wanted to develop a cinematic spy universe. The post-credits sceneFor Argy confirms that despite appearances, the two universes evolve (almost) under the same banner. If Elly’s story is intended to be anchored in reality, that of her hero is not. In the final scene, we can see the character fantasized by the novelist at her origins. The sequence features him in a bar called The King’s Man, an obvious reference to the heroes of the 2017 film and drinking a glass of Whiskey Statesman. Through these images, does the director suggest that Argylle is a Kinsgman? Is Elly the one who will create this universe on paper? We can quite easily highlight the winks that the film summons: starting with the astonishing cover of Alfred Solomon played by Samuel L. Jackson. Like the Statesman, the character uses alcohol manufacturing to hide his true activities. This is a wine estate in France.
The fact that the actor was summoned in both universes also reinforces the confusion of the spectators, while giving rise to the idea that Elly was inspired by those close to her to construct the characters of the saga. Kinsgman. This is particularly true when Henry Cavill appears in the finale, and he asks the heroine during a book signing: “you know me ?”.
We can also cite the choice of the aesthetic of the promotion, the highlighting of certain textiles to recall British-inspired motifs which would look great on the costumes manufactured by the Kingsman brand. Asked about the subject, Matthew Vaughn explains to Yahoo UK do not rule out the idea of a meeting.
“There is Kingsman on the left and Argylle on the right, and a place in the middle where I would like to see his two worlds collide.”
For the moment, it is difficult to know where and when this meeting will take place. Matthew Vaughn is developing a third part of the saga Kingsman for the big screen. He recently confided that he was in the middle of the writing process. Note that the prequel The King’s Man : Première Mission must also have a sequel, which has nevertheless not been talked about again since. Finally, the filmmaker plans to devote a series to the Statesman and brings back Halle Berry, Channing Tatum and Jeff Bridges. Here again, the project remains discreet. It must be said that the filmmaker is no longer really in the odor of holiness. The prequel with Ralph Fiennes did not meet with the expected success whileFor Argy does not seem to attract criticism. Is the spy MCU dead in the bud? We will probably have to wait to know how the film is doing in theaters to find out. For his first weekend, he collected 35.5 million dollars worldwide. The fact remains that to afford the rights to Argylle, Apple Studios would have paid no less than 200 million dollars. Without production coststhis operation does not currently appear to be the most profitable.
