Who will become the new James Bond? Fans chose their favorite

“No time to die” was Daniel Craig’s fifth and final appearance as James Bond. Even before the film’s premiere, there were speculations about its successor. Rumors and unofficial reports mentioned Tom Hardy, Richard Madden, Tom Hiddleston, Henry Cavill and Aaron Taylor-Johnson, among others.

Recently, 31-year-old Lucien Laviscount, known from the series “Scream Queens” and “Emily in Paris”, and Cillian Murphy, recently awarded an Oscar for the main role in “Oppenheimer”.

However, 007 fans have a different type. In the survey conducted by Lottoland, Idris Elba turned out to be unrivaled. It was indicated by 17 percent of respondents. The next places were taken by Tom Hardy and Henry Cavill. Interestingly, some people mentioned actresses – the answers included Helen Mirren, Emily Blunt, Emilia Clarke and Lupita Nyong’o.

The next question concerned the director of the new installment of the adventures of agent 007. Christopher Nolan clearly won here. The winner of two Oscars for “Oppenheimer” has often appeared in gossip, and he himself did not hide the fact that he was a fan of the series. However, when asked directly, he categorically denied that he was involved in the latest Bond film.

Elba’s name has been appearing in the context of agent 007 for years. What does he say about it? “I will not become the new James Bond. That’s enough. I don’t want to talk about it anymore,” he said in 2021 in an interview with The Express daily.
