The Flash and DC's Legends of Tomorrow villain Matt Letscher says he will not be appearing in Kingsman: The Golden Circle, despite media reports (and the film's Wikipedia entry) claiming that he will be playing an unnamed role.
Untrue 😐 https://t.co/JwlmPoaqSB— Matt Letscher (@MattLetscher) April 25, 2017
Wikipedia lists Letscher as playing a Statesman agent -- the U.S. version of Kingsman -- while Comic Book Movie had him down in an unnamed role. It was the latter that led a fan to reach out to Letscher, who denied the reports.
It's entirely plausible that Letscher is actually iin the movie, but either misleading fans with the denial, or using a carefully-worded denial to hide sensitive plot spoilers (for instance, when asked if he's playing an unnamed role, he could say no because his character has a name that audiences are just not aware of yet). Fans saw something like that recently when Manu Bennett repeatedly denied his involvement with the Arrow season finale even as fans were snapping photos of him at the Vancouver airport on his way to film scenes.
It's equally or perhaps more likely that Letscher is denying a role because he's simply not in the film; it's possible that either Wikipedia, or Comic Book Movie, was confused or misinformed and that one then copied the information from the other.
