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.

Lashana LynchNext James Bond

It’s been reported this British babe will be taking over the famous 007 code name in the upcoming 25th James Bond movie, No Time To Die. Rumour has it that her character, Nomi, will take over the code name as a new spy after James Bond leaves the M16.

We really hope this rumour is true. Even previous James Bond, Pierce Brosman has stated that he thinks the next James Bond should be a female. 

Tom Hiddleston

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.

Idris Elba

Next James Bond

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.

Michael Fassbender

Next James Bond

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.

Orlando Bloom

Next James Bond

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.
