New posters on the official King’s Man Twitter account show the cast posturing for portraits in period-appropriate ensembles. The gang of spies is available and accounted for, with Hounsou’s Shola using some leather-bound weaponry.

The characters’ vintage threads feature the hundred-year delay between The King’s Man and the other films in the franchise. The appearance of Grigori Rasputin, who passed on in 1916, doesn’t hurt either. Rasputin is only one of many historical figures to appear in The King’s Man, including the aforementioned triplet of British, German, and Russian rulers. They will be joined by Prince Felix Yuzupov, clairvoyant Erik Jan Hanussen, Herbert Kitchener, industrialist Alfred DuPont, Tsarina Alix, alleged covert operative Mata Hari, and Robert Aramayo as Gavrilo Princip, who famously assassinated Archduke Franz Ferdinand.
It will be intriguing to perceive how the film’s vibrant new characters clash with a particularly conspicuous gathering of historical figures. In case The King’s Man’s vicious red band trailer is any indication, their interactions ought to be anything yet peaceful. The film is set during a strain cooker crossroads ever, as proven by the consideration of Franz Ferdinand’s assassin. The wartime setting also harmonizes with the year of banner star Rasputin’s homicide, recommending that The King’s Man will have a wicked, farfetched completion much the same as Inglorious Basterds.
