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.

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

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

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 mostly agree w. that. Theyd have more freedom to take the character in different directions, if nothing else, without alienating an established fanbase.

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.

The only way i personally would have no problem w. a female or black Bond (and even then, it wouldnt be much of a problem, as im not that big a fan, but a problem in general SMH sense), is if, like Craigs being blond, it wasnt adressed at all.
If gender or color is ging to be some big plot point, then they (whoever they are) should just make up a new character to go into whatever issues they want to put onscreen, not co-opt an existing character.

Otherwise, have at it!

Not quite the same as a Black bond.

Black blond Bond!

AKA, DTs statement proves, if anything, fans are never happy.

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.

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.

Hiddleston would be a great villain, but, thatd be too obvious maybe?

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.

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