Do We Finally Know Who the Next James Bond Will Be?
James Bond a.k.a 007 is the one character that has remained constant yet not. Since the franchise started in 1960s, six actors have played the iconic role of the secret agent such as Sean Connery, George Lazenby, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton, Pierce Brosnan and Daniel Craig.
Daniel Craig, the latest Bond, signed on to play five movies and his last one comes out next October which will be directed by Danny Boyle. So, that has left everyone wondering who the next Bond will be? Which actor will take the coveted role? The rumors of Idris Elba playing the character have been going around since 2014.
The Blade series actor has been a fan-favorite for a long time now, not ignoring the fact that he would be the first Black actor chosen to portray the powerful role. And people are definitely ready for that. But the rumors were never confirmed, until recently that is. The actor tweeted something suspicious that may have been a hint to him playing the character after Craig.

After the tweet and the producer saying that it is time for a non-white actor to take the role, it all seems to point to one thing and that is Idris Elba = James Bond. Other suggestions for the role have been actors Tom Hardy, Michael Fassbender and Aidan Turner.Disclaimer:We do not allow users to post content which is copyright and We take strict actions against the users who post infringement content on our website.Although we do not host any content, users post embed videos from youtube, facebook, Dailymotion and Vimeo and are moderated before posting but we still take strict action against the copyright videos posted.If you are an official representative of any company whose videos are posted illegally on our website or you think some video infringe the copyright then you can simply send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
