Eggsy, I saw in you what someone once saw in me, something that can’t be taught: the makings of a Kingsman. Being a Kingsman is more than the clothing we wear, or the weapons we bear. It’s about being willing to sacrifice for the greater good. I hope you’re ready for what comes next.

So I found the exact butterfly that we got a close up of in the teaser trailer. It is called the Purple Emperor and I feel like there are some points that I should lay out there about this butterfly. 

Firstly it is native to temperate areas of Asia as well as, and–most notably–the British Isles. It’s conservation status was threatened for a long period of time due to WWI and WWII as their former habitat was being used in large quantities for timber during the war. 

Furthermore it is fondly nicknamed “His Majesty” and it doesn’t feed off of flowers like many butterflies do. Instead it subsists on honeydew from aphids, oak tree sap, waste, and most interestingly in my opinion, the carcasses of other animals.

Now given the destruction of Kingsman and the use of “My Way” by Sinatra being used in the first trailer, I’m starting to wonder if Kingsman will be essentially dismantled, and this feels like a hint that maybe Harry will be the next Arthur charged with rebuilding it from the ground up. 

This could mean nothing of course, but it should be noted that they took pains to make sure that even the Family and Genus/Subfamily listed above were correct. The depictions of the ovum, larvae, and pupa are also accurate.

Even it’s life cycle table is almost exactly on point if you place ovum on the bottom row and imago up top.

I gotta say, that is a lot of detail to put into something that they aren’t using for some intentional foreshadowing.
