Cavil wants to play Bond..

Should he?

Will he do a good job?

I'm not a big Cavil fan, but watching him in MI Fallout, I think he could make a good James Bond.

Mindset
I hope not.

I think he's be a good Bond and he came close before but lost the role to Craig back in 2005. Would have been too young back then.

So I hope he does get it, unless someone better comes along. Idris Elba would be great, but he's too old to start the role now.

Arachnid1
I think he's a great choice.

Anything is better than Daniel Craig, all previous Bonds had charm and charisma while he looks like a dude who works at the docks.....

I have found a bunch of the Bond movies to be boring as of late.

He would be a good choice. He was in the running before but was too young at the time.

Actually yeah Goldeneye is the movie I ended up liking the most. Might be because the game was awesome too.

Goldeneye is a top a 3 Bond film for me.

I didnt say it mattered, it was just random trivia.

Like, Moore is the oldest actor to portray Bond, at 57.

Cavill was pretty fun in the Vastly and Much Underrated Man from Uncle Movie.

Cavill or Hardy would be good choices, how many supes films does Cavill have left? One?

Cavil just has one more film under his contract as Superman

Oh he was great in that thumb up

I completely forgot that one. He would defo make a great Bond.

Certainly is much better looking and has way more charisma than Craig.

Cavill would do great as Bond. After seeing MI6 I'm convinced he would kill it.

WolvesofBabylon
Yea just watched MI6 which is fantastic by the way and Cavill would be great.

janus77
Scarlette Johansson as the next Bond. A pre-Op Female-to-male Transsexual secret agent who, at times let's Russian spies stick it in her hole, for queen and country.

Failing that, Leslie Jones as the current year Bond.

riv6672
I dont get it.

BackFire
Idris Elba

What have you people got against Scarlette Johansson or Leslie Jones playing James Bond?

He'd be my pick too, but at 45 now, he'd be 47-8** at best by the time his first flick came out, that's a bit too old to be starting your action Bond career. I'd still like to see it, just not sure how long his run would be.

32-40 is around the perfect starting age for Bond now, imo. I'd also not mind if they did a handing-of-the-torch with the new Bond instead of rebooting, especially if they went with a younger guy. Have the new actor be an agent in the next film and Craig's Bond either dies or retires due to injury, handing over the 007 mantle. Like Judy Dench/Ralph Fiennes with the role of M.


**Sure Roger Moore did it at around that age, but those films were more tongue-in-cheek compared to where the franchise is now. I also think Roger Moore used the blood of orphans to keep his face looking younger/rigorous; that's not kosher in Hollywood anymore.

Just get Taron Egerton or Colin Firth since they did a better job of being bond-like in Kingsman than Craig ever did in the Bond role.

James Bond Producers Are Reportedly Leaning Toward Idris Elba as the Next 007

There are a lot of actors who could play 007 once Daniel Craig retires from the role he despises: Tom Hardy, Michael Fassbender (even though he's Irish), Tom Hiddleston (of Hiddleswift fame), David Oyelowo (who actually voices the character in the audiobooks). Hell, even controversially-mustached human man Henry Cavill thinks he has what it takes.

But there's only one actor who should be the next James Bond, and that's Idris Elba. -snip

Isn't he a bit old to start playing Bond?

Robtard
That's my main concern, he'd be terrific in the role, but at 45 now he would be pushing 50 by his first film.

But if Tom Cruise at pushing 60 can beat up guys in their 30's and get all the chicks as Ethan Hunt, why why Idris

Kazenji
Why not just create a new spy character that's black instead of reusing James Bond

just find it lazy having to change a race or sex of a character.

I was just cast, guys.

I hope to have your support.

Well with Daniel Craig fans were complaining about having a Blond Bond.

So Really dont see the issue with a Black Bond. Given that wouldnt change the character at all.

Now a Female Bond... That would change the character... A Lot.

Bond having Blonde hair is just as superficial as Bond having Black skin. What really makes Bond is that he's British, suave, charming, a lady-killer and can kill a man effortlessly if needed. Idris Elba ticks all those boxes.

Granted, I know the character was written as a White man and when I personally think of Bond, Pierce Brosnan fits the look best in my mind, handsome/striking features, dark hair, tall and fit but not overly muscular. Idris ticks off all those boxes too expect skin color.

playa1258
Hiddleston or Cavill would be my picks.

Robtard
Hiddleston's great; just not sure he's Bond. Would certainly be interesting to see how he'd do in the role though.

Fassbender would probably be a great fit.

riv6672

Robtard
100% agreed there, he's full on Bond villain. In fact, this needs to happen regardless of who they pick to take on the role in the future Bond 26 film.

Inhuman
Hiddleston as Bond, and also as the villain in a double roll like Dr. Evil and Austin Powers.

They could do an avant-garde Bond and have Hiddleston play every role, M, Q, Moneypenny, the villain, his henchmen, the sexual interest etc.

Kazenji
Cary Joji Fukunaga to direct the next movie, Got announced today.

janus77
Henry Cavil or Tom Hardy would be good, Hiddleston's a bit too weedy imo.

Also, an older and more intersting bond would be good with Hugh Grant in the role, if they want to do something novel.

Not really a fan of the idea of a black James Bond, just for the sake of politics. He's a British Secret Service Agent of Scottish ancestry. They don't need to be messing with the backstory.

Kazenji
I don't mind the idea of a Black secret agent set within the world of 007 films, Have it as some sort of spin off.

Really wished Mendes would've came back to finish Craig's arc as Bond, but what a solid choice to put in the director's chair.

Can't pull up the link, but according to Indiewire, Craig is getting to do his "From Russia With Love" Bond film with Fukunaga for Craig's swan song as 007.

One Big Mob
They should have an Asian James Bond with a Scottish accent

Make bond black and Superman black. I would love the fanslosing their shit over it. Two characters who have always been lame to me.

There already is black superman he's from Earth 2 but of course most fans are ignorant.

Kazenji
So by your logic your not allowed to talk about comics in the movie section. You've already failed there, Douchbag.

His work in The Man From U.N.C.L.E. is enough to sell me.

I'd vote for Cavill. Older than when he was first considered, but not too old, and can debonair but for sure is physically imposing enough to make you think he could relieve beat a thug to death if need be.

I know not everyone's hot on the idea, but Elba is my number one pick after Craig gets done with his 5th Bond. However, Elba himself said (I think around when The Dark Tower was released last year) that he'd be hesitant to take the role because he'd be known as the black Bond. Not a big deal to me, though, as he seems like the type of actor that would own being Bond.

For right now, I just really want a good send off for Craig. Anything that can wrap up his arc while being in the same quality ballpark as Casino Royale and Skyfall, please.
