Matthew Vaughn is no stranger to taking a beloved property and crafting a fresh, energetic origin story out of it. But this time, with The King’s Man, he gets to do it to his own movies. Vaughn’s Kingsman films, loosely based off of Mark Millar’s comic books, followed a fictional secret service organization that presented a hyperviolent twist on the concept of the gentleman spy.

A brain tumor played by musician-performance artist Laurie Anderson, to be precise, that sings the opening number in the show, a neat trick given that the high-powered cast of fully human characters, not personified malignancies, includes Glenn...
