The latest Bond film, Spectre managed to get mixed reviews at best. Prior to the movie release, Daniel Craig mentioned how he may not do another Bond film which gave rise to a very important question for the British agent’s fans. Who will be the next Bond? So who are currently the favorites to play the lead in the massive franchise? Online Sportsbook managed to narrow it down to two names who have the most potential, Tom Hardy and Idris Elba. It is quite the possibility that one of these two will play the next Bond. But of course, we can’t put our finger on any one name, there are still other options. Some are even pointing out Damian Lewis as the next Bond.
As far as public opinion goes, the next Bond will be Tom Hardy, closely followed by Idris Elba. Hardy increased his odds of becoming the next Bond with his exceptional performance in a double role in the gangster biopic Legend. There are other interesting names on the list for example, Nicholas Hoult starring in Kill Your Friends, or Michael Fassbender who recently played the role of Steve Jobs. Henry Cavill too has pretty strong odds, he is after all, Superman. Another interesting entry to the list is Hugh Jackman and the name needs no introduction, but the guy has pretty strong odds. The most shocking of all the aforementioned names is Orlando Bloom from Pirates of the Caribbean. But we can totally see how chances of him putting on a tuxedo are really slim.
Even though Spectre managed mixed reviews, the movie did exceptionally well. So much so that Daniel Craig was reported to have said he may still do another Bond movie. Again, there are no sureties on that. At any rate, hunt for the next Bond is on, and our guess is as good as yours.
