In one of Twentieth Century Fox Studios’ last films of 2021, famous names — both historically and cast-wise — bring a unique story to the screen. “The King’s Man” was adapted from the popular comic book series “Kingsman: The Secret Service” by Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons and is an R-rated prequel to the two previous “Kingsman” films, 2014’s “Kingsman: The Secret Service” and 2017’s “Kingsman: The Golden Circle.”
Set in the early twentieth century, the film draws some parallels to Marvel’s Avengers, as a group of good guys gathers to diffuse evil schemes of an opposing tyrant group.
