There has been a lot of speculation about who will take over the role of James Bond from Daniel Craig. There have been rumors that Tom Hiddleston, Idris Elba, and Henry Cavill are all in the running for this coveted role. Cavill lost the part to Daniel Craig back in 2005. Now that Daniel Craig has decided to hang his boots for the Bond franchise the role of James Bond is up for grabs again.
Henry Cavill on the other hand has made a name for himself during the last 16 years and is one of the front runners to be part of the new franchise. He has already done some other spy and intelligence-related movies like Mission Impossible and the new spy movie in production Argyle which is based on Ellie Conway’s novel.
Henry Cavill Is the Perfect Actor to Play the Role of James Bond
Henry Cavill has the perfect looks for the role of James Bond and would make a great 007 agent. He is already an experienced actor and knows how to carry himself in front of the camera. This would be a win-win situation for MGM and the producers of the James Bond franchise.
Henry Cavill is already part of the DC Universe as Superman, if he does become James Bond then this would mean Christmas for his fans.
Who Are The Other People In Talks To Become The New James Bond?
There have been talks about bringing some diversity to the Bonds franchise. Many people believe that the concept of James Bond movies is always been based on misogyny which doesn’t go well in the modern well. This is why there have been talks of doing a first-ever female 007 agent. There are also talks of casting an African American actor for James Bond movies.
Idris Elba is the front runner for the African American James Bond character. Idris Elba is an acclaimed British actor, singer, and DJ who is known for playing drug lord Stringer Bell in the HBO series The Wire, Detective John Luther on BBC One’s Luther, and Nelson Mandela in the biographical film Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom.
The other frontrunner is Tom Hiddleston. Tom Hiddleston is an English actor well known for his work as Loki in Thor and Avengers movies. He has played other characters in Shakespearean plays and has proved his acting skills.
All three actors are loved by fans but people are looking towards Henry Cavill because he wanted the role even back in 2005. In a recent interview when he was asked about taking on the role of the titular spy agent, Cavill said that only time will tell what happens. In addition, he also said that he was open to everything. So the decision of hiring the new James Bond actor all depends on the production companies. However, if they contact Cavill then there are high chances that he would most likely take on the role.
