Daniel Craig has left a huge gap in the shoes that needs to be filled by the next James Bond actor after his version of the British spy received his emotional goodbye at the end of No time to die. To be fair, any Bond fan would have cried at the end of the last film.
But there has yet to be a successor to Craig’s successful, albeit initially frazzled, portrayal of the character. There’s been a lot of speculation about who the next Bond will be, with tons of archetypal Bond actors already listed. A remarkable candidate is Steel man star Henry Cavill, and it looks like we’ve gotten a not-so-official confirmation that he’s attending.

Millie Bobby Brown may have confirmed the next James Bond
There are over ten actors who have been listed to play James Bond in any reboot that will follow after the release of No time to die. Emphasis on the reboot as Daniel Craig’s Bond makes a sacrifice at the end of the film.
Not every actor on the “to be James Bond” list needs to be named, but there are a few fan-picked ones who are also in demand. The likes of Tom Hardy, Andrew Garfield, Idris Elba, Regé-Jean Page, etc. are huge contenders.
But Superman star Henry Cavill seems to be the standout actor on this list. He’s British, looks like Bond and has already shown his prowess in action movies like Assignment: Impossible – To fall as well as playing in Argyle, another spy movie!

One of his latest silly acts came when he tried to get his co-star to participate in a TikTok dance, to no avail! BBC Radio 1 reporter Ali Plumb asks him if this ever happened in the interview, here’s what the Godzilla star had to say-
“Ali, it’s honestly like moving a brick wall. It’s just…it won’t happen unless I have a hammer, it won’t happen. Also the fact that he’s very big, usually I can’t get it to move”
The James Bond contestant has always sounded quite stern and reserved in every interview we’ve heard him speak. Maybe he’s preparing for the role of Bond?
