A couple of days ago, to search my favourite photo, typed in 'Solo & Illya' to google.
Here came the images of the beloved pair, Solo and Illya but then, found images of the new film version - Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer, in those photos popped up. Honestly, shocked to spot them....
A picture like this.
The photo yet instantly reminded me of the shot below.↓
|The Fiddlesticks Affair|
You see the distance, as well - a lot different. Will those two bulky lads achieve such a lovely pairing one day?
Yet, there are voices saying that the new films are full of subtle homage to the original series the Man from U.N.C.L.E. in contrast to the Kingsman's "obvious" ones. Or are they simple co-incidences?
Let me pick up the findings from the long waited trailer of the new film.
Gaby(Alicia Vikander) pushing down Hammer-Illya looks just exactly like Miki in the Her Master's Voice Affair. And both Illyas threat the fawning young ladies with spanking.
The Girls From Nazarone Affair
b. The shots were done by (Cavill) Solo. BUT it is something Solo would never ever do! Remember the Thrush Roulette Affair. Solo never aimed his gun at Illya even for a second, while instantly brain-washed Illya was shooting him. That is the SOLO I love and worship.
Something I did not spot, but sure it is.
The same outfits. The site also mentioned the hidden homage, or Easter Eggs, whatever it is called. The Spy Command（元HMSS)
