Henry Cavill has always been a fan favorite for people. Whether it’s the titular Superman character in Steel man or the constant growl of Geralt de Riv in the witcher, fans love it. Now it’s being reported that he’s doing his best to appear as British MI-6 agent James Bond in the next James Bond movie trying to take on the competition, Idris Elba.

Henry Cavill wants to be the next James Bond
It is not surprising that the actor tried to play the role of James Bond in the previous films. He was rejected for being called “too big” (ouch!) during the auditions for Casino Royale (2005). The role eventually went to Daniel Craig, turning him into a Bond franchise legend. According to sources, the only competition for the James Bond title is between Idris Elba and Henry Cavill.

It looks like Cavill would most definitely be interested in playing the high-class British agent, but Idris Elba doesn’t want the role.
The actor said the following in an interview:
“I know the Bond rumors have always chased me. Look, my poor mum is like, ‘One day you’re gonna get it!’ I was like, ‘Mom, I’m fine, I have ‘Luther’.
James Bond’s coat is up for grabs
Daniel Craig announced his retirement from the Bond franchise after filming no time to die (2021). The film starred Ana de Armas with Daniel Craig in the lead. Shortly after his departure from the franchise, various actors pitched their names for the title of the next James Bond. Miles Teller’s grandmother has started an online petition for her grandson (from Top Gun: Maverick fame) to be the next Bond but there has been no official response from studios.
It is highly likely that the fight will be between Henry Cavill and Idris Elba only. However, given that the former actor has made up his mind, it would be really exciting to see the Man of Steel take on the role of the next MI-6 agent. There has been no official confirmation from the studios or any of the cast.
