It was an opportunity too good to pass up since 20th Century Fox runs the popular animated FX comedy Archer and the upcoming Kingsman: The Golden Circle to cross over the two franchises to have Sterling Archer (H. Jon Benjamin) and Eggsy (Taron Egerton), respectively, meet in a standoff titled #TBT to That Time Met Kingsman
The clip was released for fans at San Diego Comic Con.
The action starts with Eggsy (Taron Egerton) running, parkouring and overcoming multiple street obstacles before going into the Kingsman suit shop where he happens to meet Archer (H. Jon Benjamin), who was impatiently waiting for service.
As Archer sarcastically criticizes the suit he tries on in front of Eggsy and reveals that he’s found the Kingsman stash of high grade weaponry. When Eggsy points his firearm to Archer’s face, Archer returns in kind to Eggsy’s pants. Eggsy decides to challenge Archer to a drinking contest to see what the “World’s Greatest Spy” is made of. Without much of a response, Archer takes the bottle from Eggsy and drinks himself to a blackout, which Eggsy takes advantages of with a marker.
What do you think of the exchange? Do you want 20th Century Fox to do more of these?
Archer just completed their eighth season and is returning for their ninth and tenth seasons for FXX and the Matthew Vaughn-directed Kingsman: The Golden Circle comes to theaters September 22.
The Golden Circle stars Egerton, Colin Firth, Julianne Moore, Mark Strong, Halle Berry, Channing Tatum, and Jeff Bridges.
