Who will play the next 007 is the most heated topic on social media nowadays. Since Daniel Craig has vacated the seat of this legendary role of James Bond, the actor’s last outing as this iconic character was No Time to Die, which came in 2021. Craig has turned 54 this year, and he thought it was time to leave the limelight as he has become too old for the role. Now fans are demanding the name of their next British agent, and Henry Cavill is back in the race. And this opportunity will be the biggest for any actor as James Bond has been the legacy of Hollywood for the last 60 years.
Henry Cavill has been trending in the top list of James Bond candidates
People have constantly been guessing who will play James Bond for this lucrative franchise because they have had a massive fanbase for decades and the odds are ever-changing for the role. The Witcher star is now running at the top of the list after Idris Elba. Henry Cavill has always been a fan favorite from becoming powerful superman to a white-haired mutagen.
Fans see Henry as the hot candidate as his physique, demeanor, voice, and acting is essentially appealing for the role of fearless spy. Now he is the second candidate, but he was trending in the top 1 for weeks after the news of Daniel’s retirement came out.
Moreover, the actor himself is interested in playing the role, according to Koimoi. “At this stage, it’s all up in the air. We’ll see what happens. But yes, I would love to play Bond, it would be very, very exciting,” remarked Henry.
Geralt of Rivia has a new potential competitor in the list of 007 odds
With his odds of playing the legendary spy renewed, Herny now has a new competitor in a Harry Potter actor. Just like the Bridgerton star Jonathan Bailey, who instantly jumped to the top list of 007 contenders, we have Callum Turner. According to the information by Express, Ladbrokes had confirmed that Turner’s stakes have surprisingly grown from 25/1 to 16/1. This sudden boost in his contender-ship has made him an important lead.
Callum makes a good fit for the qualities this new James Bond has demanded. He is in his early 30s, good-looking, and his height is 1.87 m, which can be considered quite viable. The actor is famous for his role in the Harry Potter franchise. He portrayed Theseus Scamander in Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald and Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore.
