Idris Elba could finally replace Daniel Craig

A few months after the release of Dying can wait, the question of the identity of Daniel Craig’s replacement in the role of James Bond is still pending. In a recent interview, the producers of the license mentioned the case of Idris Elba, who could well become the new agent 007.

A serious candidate

Who will be the next James Bond? Long before Daniel Craig puts on for a final lap the costume of the greatest and coolest secret agent in Dying can wait, released in September 2021 (and of which you can read our full review), fans were passionately discussing who his replacement would be. And everyone has their own little prognosis, based on their desires.

Thus, some hope to see the actors Tom Hardy (Peaky Blinders, Taboo), Henry Cavill (Man of Steel, The Witcher) or even Cillian Murphy (Peaky Blinders, The wind picks up) as Agent 007’s interpreter. Another name is among the great fan favorites: that of the British Idris Elba, revealed by the series The Wire, the great masterpiece of David Simon for HBO, and whose performance in the English detective series Luther demonstrated his immense talent and enormous charisma.

However, despite the immense potential of Idris Elba, it would seem that because of his skin color, the choice is not unanimous among the fans. Indeed, some see James Bond as a white, heterosexual Englishman, where producers described him as a heterosexual man from a Commonwealth country. Asked by Deadline, Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson discussed the possibility of Idris Elba playing Agent 007:

We know Idris, we’re friends, and he’s a wonderful actor. And, you know, he’s in the discussion.

In other words, despite the reluctance of some, the hypothesis that Idris Elba will become the new James Bond must be taken into consideration. However, the producers recall that they have not, for the moment, taken any decision concerning the replacement of Daniel Craig. Indeed, in the same interview, they explain that they want to wait a bit before making the decision.

Until we savor and reap the benefits of Daniel’s wonderful tenure [Craig, NDLR], we’re not going to think or talk about anyone else.

Until then, the idea of ​​Idris Elba becoming the new James Bond could continue to make its way among fans. As for those who doubt the potential of the British actor, we obviously advise them to watch the five seasons of the series. Luther or the movie The Suicide Squad by James Gunn, in which he brilliantly interprets Bloodsport, brilliant with his charisma and his cool-attitude.

While waiting for the revelation of the next James Bond, we recall that recently Barbara Broccoli announced that the secret agent could not be a woman.
