Daniel Craig will be returning for the next James Bond movie, Bond25, but he won’t be able to play the role of 007 forever. When he decides to hang up the keys to his Jag, someone is going to have to replace Daniel Craig as the next James Bond. With icons like Sean Connery, Timothy Dalton, and Roger Moore having portrayed the role, the next James Bond has some pretty serious shoes to fill.
These are the stars who are rumoured to be the next James Bond.
He’s British, can handle action movies, and looks the part. Hiddleston apparently enjoys driving fast cars and is quite the lady’s man, having dated stars like Jennifer Lawrence and Taylor Swift.
We really hope this rumour is true. Gillian Anderson has already proved with franchises like X-Files that she can handle action, suspense, and carry a complicated storyline with ease. Casting her as the next James Bond would be a very cool progressive move.
Another progressive choice for the next James Bond would be Idris Elba, making him the first James Bond of colour. Whether this rumour is true is still open for debate, with Elba himself calling the rumours that he is the next James Bond “the wildest rumour in the world”. But he does acknowledge that everyone wants him to be next James Bond, saying that:
Everywhere I go people want that to happen. If it should happen that I’m the next James Bond, that’s proof there’s connectivity amongst human beings. If everyone wants something, they can make it happen. That would be true.
Although we would love to see Michael Fassbender as the next James Bond, we may never get to see that, as the actor has said no to being the next James Bond before.
Bond! Is this rumour still going round? “Well, look at me! I look about 50!” No, I think the franchise needs something new.
The actor has said that he would play the next James Bond “very English”. He also confesses that he grew up loving the movies and would love to be the next James Bond. But Orlando Bloom is also a fan of the idea of the next James Bond being a female, saying that:
Who knows? The [next James Bond] might be a woman; in the world we live in today.
