Who will be the next James Bond? This question has taken over the minds of people since No Time to Die has released. Daniel Craig, who was headlining the franchise for several years, stepped down from the throne last year. So naturally, people are endlessly talking about who can suit best this iconic role after the legends who have carried it so far. From Regé-Jean Page, Lashana Lynch, to Henry Cavill, fans are putting their faith in the best candidates. Most recently, a lot of rumors were circulating about the incredible British actor Idris Elba taking the mantle of 007. However, debunking all those theories, the Prometheus star recently opened up about his connection to the new project. Will this revelation push the former Superman any further toward this legendary role?
Idris Elba recently sat down with The Guardian to talk about his amazing journey into Hollywood. During the conversation, he was asked about the speculations that he would succeed Daniel Craig as 007. In his response, the Obsessed star stated that he admires people’s opinions but he has never been in any such discussion. He just shares a close bond with the producers and that’s why he visited them.
“I can’t speak for them, but from my perspective, there’s never been any sort of truth to any of it. It’s a compliment, and it’s an honor, but it’s not a truth,” explained Elba.
