For months, if not years, there have been rumors about who will replace Daniel Craig as the most famous secret agent. They’ve been speeding up in the past few days because it was allegedly confirmed that Tom Hardy would take the role again, but that’s obviously not the case. In short, to see more clearly, let’s review the possible options, but also the unrealizable ones. Let’s start with the tracks that need to be forgotten.
- Idris Elba
While some dream of opening up the world of James Bond, Elba’s name is a favorite. Indeed, the British have every means to make an excellent James Bond and frankly we wouldn’t say no. The problem, its age. He’s only four years younger than Daniel Craig, so that wouldn’t make sense, especially for a contract that typically includes 4-5 films.
- Tom Hardy
Tom Hardy is just as concerned as Idris Elba and already too old. Sure, he’s almost 10 years younger than Craig, but by the age of Hardy Craig had already done 3 jumps. Output.
- Robert Pattinson
Pattinson is young, Pattinson is handsome and charismatic, but Pattinson is now Batman. It’s hard to see it build up given the responsibilities involved.
In the possibilities section, here are a few candidates, all of whom are under 40 years of age.
- Richard crazy
With the BODYGUARD series, he has already proven that he can do it with action. His engagement to Marvel shouldn’t be a problem (he’s in the cast of THE ETERNELS as a reminder) and he’s only 34 years old which means he can easily make 4 to 6 films.
- Dan Stevens
You know him thanks to DONWTOWN ABBEY. He’s arguably the least known of all the potential candidates, but Dan Stevens has it all.
- Tom Hiddleston
At 39, he’s the oldest on the list, but Hiddleston is in great shape, a very handsome kid with a British accent to die for and good languages too. Is that what people want?
- Henry Cavill
Granted, it’s Superman, but given the downward slope of the DC Extanded Universe (though technically dead, but neither) Cavill could be free to play as Her Majesty’s spy, and at Cinenews we’re not saying no. .
The rumor of a “Jane Bond” has been around for a while, but will it happen?
Anyway, we envision that the replacement for Daniel Craig will be announced after the release of THE CAN WAIT.
