Daniel Craig is the latest James Bond. Before him, several famous actors succeeded in the role of agent 007. These include Sean Connery, George Lazenby, Roger Moore and Pierce Brosnan. As for Daniel Craig, he got the chance to star in five films of the franchise. And after the release of No Time To Die, the actor said goodbye to the role of Bond.
Since then, fans of the franchise have been wondering who the actor who will reprise the role of Agent 007 is. There has been a lot of speculation on the internet about Daniel Craig’s successor. Names like Tom Hardy, Idris Elba or even Henry Cavill came back several times.
If Idris Elba has already spoken out on this subject in the past by declaring that he would not be the next James Bond, the doubt remains as far as Tom Hardy and Henry Cavill are concerned.
” I don’t know “
Recently, Henry Cavill appeared on Josh Horowitz’s podcast Happy Sad Confused. He took advantage of his time on this show to speak out about rumors of his involvement in the James Bond franchise. The actor said he was still interested in the role.
” Yeah. I’m kind of busy right now. I love those people, Barbara Broccoli and Mike G. Wilson…Whether I’ll be considered for the role or not, I don’t know. But of course it would be really nice to have this conversation. And if I’m not, then I just want to see what they’re going to do with it next, because I think they’re great.”
Would Henry Cavill be a good James Bond?
In many ways, Henry Cavill would be perfect to embody the new James Bond. However, his career has evolved since he was approached for the role of Agent 007. And that threatens to come between the James Bond franchise and him. It must be said that Henry Cavill’s schedule is very busy at the moment.
In the early 2000s, Henry Cavill was still very little known. It wasn’t until 2013, with Man of Steel, that he was propelled to stardom. Since then, the actor has been engaged to DC to lend his features to Superman.
Barbara Broccoli and Mike Wilson are looking for someone to commit to the franchise for ten years. Taking Henry Cavill therefore risks being a bit risky. Indeed, the actor still has to fulfill his obligations to DC.
