After producers outlined exactly what they’re seeking for in the next James Bond, there is a new favorite for the part. Daniel Craig’s 007 was a tough, stoic superspy who could scale walls, but he could also display a more emotional side when he was at his most vulnerable.
Although it will be “at least two years” until they start filming the next one, they have previously stated that they are looking for the next Bond to be a “reinvention” of the renowned movie hero.
Henry Cavill, a longtime favorite among Bond fans to succeed Craig as the next Bond, is the obvious favorite to take Bond’s place, according to the bookmakers. He has a lot of action experience in his career, looks nice in suits, and showed in 2015’s The Man From U.N.C.L.E. that he could play a classy spy.
Regé-Jean Page, who plays Bond in the television series Bridgerton, is Cavill’s next-closest competition for the part, according to the odds. Tom Hardy and James Norton have also been mentioned as potential candidates.
