The King's Man Physically Challenged Djimon Hounsou For Sword Fights

Matthew Vaughn loves a stylish action scene and, in directing The King's Man, he has made it known once again. With his new World War I-era prequel film in the Kingsman franchise, Vaughn has effectively provided himself with the opportunity to flex entirely new muscles by having his cast and stunt teams engage in sword fighting sequences. Djimon Hounsou, who plays Shola in the film, is no stranger to a good action sequence himself. Still, the actor tells ComicBook.com that Vaughn's new King's Man film presented challenges to him that he had not experienced before.

‘The King’s Man’s Rhys Ifans and Djimon Hounsou on Matthew Vaughn and Why Filming the Big Rasputin Fight was a “World of Pain”

With director Matthew Vaughn’s The King’s Man now playing in theaters, I recently got to speak with Djimon Hounsou and Rhys Ifans about making the Kingsman prequel. As you’ve seen in the trailers, The King’s Man is set against the backdrop of WWI and uses real history to show how the independent intelligence agency came into existence. Loaded with the kind of action you’d expect from Matthew Vaughn, a great cast, and a number of surprises you won’t see coming, I thought The King’s Man was extremely well done and can’t wait to see the next installment. The King’s Man also stars Ralph Fiennes, Gemma Arterton, Harris Dickinson, Rhys Ifans, Matthew Goode, Tom Hollander, Daniel Brühl, Djimon Hounsou, and Charles Dance. The King’s Man is based on the comic book The Secret Service by Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons, with story by Vaughn and screenplay by Vaughn & Karl Gajdusek.

The King's Man's Djimon Hounsou And Rhys Ifans On Portraying The Series' Biggest Badasses [Interview]

Matthew Vaughn's "The King's Man" is a stunning shift in the "Kingsman" action-comedy-spy franchise, both for being the series' first prequel and for portraying fictionalized versions of very real historical characters as central figures in the villains' machinations. Set in the throes of World War I, the film sees the Duke of Oxford (Ralph Fiennes) partner with his son Conrad (Harris Dickinson), Polly Wilkins (Gemma Arterton), and the tough-as-nails Shola (Djimon Hounsou) to thwart a villainous plan that holds the fate of Europe in the balance. It introduces Rasputin (Rhys Ifans) as a charismatic and dangerous foe (a fictionalization of the "Mad Monk" himself), loaded with charisma, danger, and a unique fighting style that makes him a strong match for the fledgling spy organization. It's an interesting prequel that introduces considerable new dangers for the organization, provides fertile ground for additional prequel spinoffs, and launches some of the series' most memorable characters yet.

Marvel star Djimon Hounsou reveals painful The King's Man memory

Djimon Hounsou has revealed which sequence from The King's Man brings back painful memories for him. Speaking exclusively to Digital Spy, the Marvel star detailed a major fight scene, in which his character Shola teams up with Orlando (Ralph Fiennes) and Conrad (Harris Dickinson) to take on Rhys Ifans' Rasputin.

Guardians Of The Galaxy Villain Djimon Hounsou Would Like To Return To The MCU

Marvel Studios' "What If...?" season 1 was a real mixed bag, but one of the best parts was getting to see a very different spin on familiar MCU characters. The animated series' second episode, which focused on a reality where T'Challa was accidentally taken from Earth by Yondu and the Ravagers as a kid and grew up to become Star-Lord, had a lot of fun with this idea, transforming the would-be solemn King of Wakanda into a quippy cosmic superhero who's so beloved he even managed to convince Thanos to not wipe out half of all life in the universe.
