Colin Firth’s character’s means of return is still unknown

It was thought that Colin’s return might be in the form of flashbacks due to him being killed off in the previous film, but the photo confirms that this not the case. The big question now is to how Firth’s character Harry Hart survived being shot in the previous movie, especially considering he was shot in the head!

One of the theories is that the character that was shot was in fact not Harry Hart and was instead someone disguised as Harry as a decoy for Valentine’s crew. Either that or Harry received immediate medical attention and was miraculously saved from dying from the bullet wound. The theories continue but fans will just have to wait until next summer in order to find out how producer Matthew Vaughn plays the ‘Bridget Jones’ actor’s return.
