Kingsman's upcoming spin-off movie The King's Man is fast approaching its release date and we've now been given another first look, with two new photos teasing Marvel star Djimon Hounsou's character Shola.
20th Century Studios has dropped two new promo pictures on Instagram from the period spy action comedy, which serves as a prequel to the two previous Kingsman movies, and one of them features Hounsou, who plays Korath the Pursuer in Guardians of the Galaxy and Captain Marvel, looking ready for action.
He is seen standing by Ralph Fiennes' character the Duke of Oxford, who appears to have a sword strapped to his back, suggesting that the pair could be getting ready to go into battle.
The second image shows Polly, played by Gemma Arterton, keeping a low profile in a cabin and holding a gun up to a hole in the wall.
This third instalment in the Kingsman narrative takes us back to the 1910s, a time before top spies Harry Hart (Colin Firth) and Eggsy (Taron Egerton) saved the world, to instead reveal the origin story of the secret spy organisation.
The official synopsis reveals that the film will feature a race against time for these early King's Men to stop history's worst tyrants and criminal masterminds as they plot a war that could kill millions.
The all-star cast also includes Rhys Ifans, Daniel Brühl, Stanley Tucci, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Tom Hollander, Matthew Goode and Charles Dance.

Director Matthew Vaughn has teased that although this film is set before the other Kingsman films it will sow "seeds" for a third adventure for Harry and Eggsy in the future.
"We've put seeds for what's going to happen in Kingsman 3 all the way back into this," he revealed. "And it's going to be very different."
The King's Man is currently due for release in cinemas on September 16 in the UK and on September 18 in the US.
