Argylle includes a post-credits scene that delivers one more twist to the spy franchise. Here is what it sets up for the future and what comes next.
Warning: Contains SPOILERS for Argylle!
- The mid-credits scene in Argylle confirms a crossover between the Argylle and Kingsman franchises, as a young Aubrey Argylle is shown entering a bar called The King’s Man.
- The scene also establishes a connection between Agent Argylle’s past and the Kingsman organization, hinting at potential future storylines.
- The post-credits scene sets up a prequel centered around Aubrey Argylle, which will further explore his origins and potentially reveal more about the shared universe.
The Argylle post-credits scene delivers one more twist for the spy franchise that confirms major crossover plans for the future. The 2024 action movie starring Bryce Dallas Howard, Sam Rockwell, and Henry Cavill has always had big plans for what could come next. Director Matthew Vaughn already successfully launched one spy movie franchise with Kingsman 10 years ago, and there was talk early on that Argylle could be the start of another major series. This brought teases for prequels, sequels, and crossovers, sparking interest in how Argylle’s ending twists could set up these future endeavors.
One of the biggest ways that Hollywood tends to set up the future of franchises is with post-credits scenes. With the ambitious plans for the Argylle franchise, whether the movie would include additional footage in the credits has been a lingering question. Matthew Vaughn has utilized the tactic before, notably with The King’s Man’s post-credits scene delivering a shock. Now that the director is back and adapting the Argylle books into movies, the odds of an Argylle end-credits scene being included were thought to be high.
Argylle Does Have A Post-Credits Scene
It is confirmed that Argylle does have a post-credits scene. The scene is technically a mid-credits scene, as it plays during the middle of the credits sequence and no additional tag is featured at the end. This means that anyone who watches Argylle in theaters or on streaming should wait through the credits to see what is shown. Doing so will not only help clue viewers into what will come next for the franchise, but it also is a way to see the names of everyone who worked so hard to make the spy movie possible.
Argylle’s Post-Credits Scene Confirms Kingsman Franchise Crossover
The big reveal in Argylle’s mid-credits scene is the confirmation that Argylle and Kingsman take place in the same universe. The credits scene takes place 20 years before the main events of the movie. A young Aubrey Argylle, played by Enola Holmes star Louis Partridge, is shown walking into a bar that holds a familiar name for Vaughn’s spy movie universe. The bar in question is called The King’s Man. The younger Argylle goes to the location to pick up a package, which is then revealed to be a gun.
The Kingsman organization has not been shown to have a bar of its own in the Kingsman movies, with its operations primarily coming from suit tailor shops. Argylle’s credits scene proves that the organization has more business opportunities and covers than previously known. The presence of The King’s Man bar directly confirms a crossover between Argylle and Kingsman thanks to the shared name of the bar and the secret spy group. It is also a direct connection to 2021’s The King’s Man movie as it shares the same title.
The bar in Argylle is not the same bar Eggsy frequently visits in Kingsman: The Secret Service
In addition to confirming the Argylle and Kingsman shared universe, the mid-credits scene is notable for how it ties the Kingsman organization to Agent Argylle’s past. There is now a direct connection between his origin as a spy and the Kingsman. While Agent Argylle is not officially a member of the Kingsman, the credits scene establishing some history between the spy and the organization could be important for the franchise’s future. It not only means that the two spy movie franchises exist in the same cinematic universe, but Argylle could eventually cross paths with Kingsman again.
Argylle’s Mid-Credits Scene Sets Up The Argylle Prequel
The Argylle mid-credits scene is important for the franchise’s future as it directly sets up a prequel. Reports surfaced shortly ahead of the movie’s release that an Argylle prequel series was in development. Matthew Vaughn is involved in the creation of the series, which is seemingly planned as a movie franchise instead of a TV series. The plan is for Louis Partridge to reprise his role from the credits
