The King's Man

In this article, I’ll talk about Harry Morton Kingsman. I’ve just watched The King’s Man movie. It’s a spy action movie, released on 22 December 2021 in the United States, and right after four days in United Kingdom. The film hit the cinema at the time and received various critics.

Moreover, the movie is now available on Disney+ and HBO Max.

It’s really a good movie and I enjoyed it very much. However, the post-credit scene has stunned viewers.

They were a little confused by the post-credit scene. Harry Morton was honored.

It says-

In Memory of
Harry Morton
A true gentleman who led by example,
helped others and knew his duty

The villain in the movie is called Morton. That’s confusing. Some may think that the villain is sarcastically being called a true gentleman.

On November 23, 2019, Morton was found dead at his home in Beverly Hills, California. The cause of death was sudden cardiac arrest due to undiagnosed coronary artery disease. As per the People, he had a condition with “a probable cardiac arrhythmia” and “myocardial bridging with coronary artery atherosclerosis.” He also had a mildly enlarged heart.

His death was reported as a natural death with coronary artery disease after having an autopsy. Morton’s brother found his deceased body in the bathroom.

Harry was not in the Kingsman movies. With the post-credit scene, many of the viewers have shown their confusion.

His father, Peter Morton, was a godfather to Matthew, a director, and producer of the movies. Harry’s death has deeply saddened everyone, along with Vaughn, who was very close to him.

Morton was honored in the film, as he was a brother like for the film’s producer. Other than that, Harry was not directly involved in the Kingsman movies.

Producer is the godson of Harry Morton’s dad.
As Harry Morton died, producer is honoring his memory. It’s that simple. When a writer writes a book, he/she often dedicates that book to someone. That doesn’t mean that the person has to do something with that book.
