Although not much is known about the upcoming Bond movie, tentatively called Bond 25 as it is the 25th cinema outing of the one and only 007, Daniel Craig has hinted that this might be his swan song. Together with this announcement, naturally, come all the speculations and rumors on who will replace Craig and take on the mantle of the British super spy, with several big names including Henry Cavill, Tom Hardy, and even Jude Law thrown into the mix. However, recent reports have come out that James Bond producer Barbara Broccoli is considering Idris Elba as the worthy successor. While this is not the first time Elba’s name has been mentioned in the same breath as Bond, it coming from someone who can truly make it happen is quite a big deal.
Although Idris has mentioned in previous interviews that he might be too old to play Bond, we think he’s got all the makings of an international man of mystery and still has what it takes to give Spectre a run for their money.
