Following on from the full trailer release earlier this morning, 20th Century Fox brought Matthew Vaughn’s “Kingsman: The Golden Circle” to San Diego Comic Con for its panel.
Sadly that was the only film they brought to San Diego, the obvious opportunity for “Deadpool 2” or any of the upcoming “X-Men” projects they’re working on seemingly passed on by the studio.
The panel itself proved lively with a bottle of bourbon going around. And while almost all of the cast had shots, it was co-star Halle Berry that got the room celebrating as she chugged an entire water glass of the drink.

Around fifteen minutes of footage from the film was screened with the focus being on Eggsy (Taron Egerton). In one he’s abducted by former Kingsman rejects, leading to an extended chase sequence through Hyde Park. In another he and Channing Tatum’s Tequila character get into a fight.
The scene that reportedly got the best reaction was one in which Julianne Moore’s villain one punishes a subordinate by turning him into a hamburger which she then serves to a recruit.
As Fox also owns FX and many of its shows, the company took the opportunity for some cross-promotion with Eggsy appearing in a sequence that blends the worlds of “Kingsman” and spy comedy series “Archer”. Check it out below:
