Idris Elba sparks Speculation That He Will Be The Next Bond, James Bond
As soon as Daniel Craig sips his last dry martini.
Idris Elba has sparked speculation that he’s going to be taking over the mantle of James Bond... With a single photo.
And this isn’t the first time Idris has been rumoured to be the next Bond either, so folk on Twitter are overly excited.
Idris posted the photo on Twitter with the caption: “My name’s Elba, Idris Elba,” and everyone's officially freaking out.
With one follower tweeting: “If you’re the next Bond, it will be the first Bond film I ever see.”
“It’s kind of funny Idris Elba never said anything about wanting to be James Bond but after a decade-long pressure campaign y’all succeeded at making a 45-year-old man have to learn parkour,” another tweeted.
Bond is known for his attitude – suave, sophisticated, intelligent and hard as nails, just like author Giles Paley-Philips tweeted. It’s a no-brainer really.
And one person hilariously commented that the only reason Idris shouldn’t be cast as James Bond, is because he’s a double-oh-ten.
The rumour mill has it that Daniel Craig will be stepping down from the role after the next Bond movie, and with the franchise being one of the highest grossing at the box office, it’s the role of a lifetime.
TBF, this isn’t really speculation anymore because we also voted in the same poll, and if this tweet is anything to go by that’s pretty much sealed it.
Finger’s crossed this is legit and we get to see Idris take over. Now all we have to do is speculate who could be his Bond girl...
