At one time not too way back, Aaron Taylor-Johnson was getting fitted for his tux as the thrill swarmed that he was going to be the subsequent James Bond. Abruptly, it appears all that has modified, and Henry Cavill is as soon as once more the favourite for the half.
James Bond is an icon who has been performed by nice actors corresponding to Sean Connery, Roger Moor, Timothy Dalton, Pierce Brosnan, and Daniel Craig. Craig has lastly hung up his spy devices and known as it quits as agent 007. So, that left an enormous hole within the franchise and it was extremely speculated that Taylor-Johnson was going to fill the function. He’s already well-liked for his roles as Kick-Ass in Kick-Ass, Ford Brody in Godzilla, Quicksilver in Avengers: Age of Ultron, and Tangerine in Bullet Prepare. Nevertheless, everybody is aware of that taking over the function of James Bond catapults an actor’s profession to a wholly completely different degree.
All this whereas, the rumor mills have been churning and continually reporting that Taylor-Johnson is the one favored as the brand new 007 despite the fact that the actor himself refused to refute or verify the information. However as he didn’t outright deny them both, his followers held on to hope.
However now, chilly water has been splashed on all these expectations. A bomb has been dropped on this complete parade that he gained’t be enjoying the function in any case. The brand new rumor on the streets comes from Jeff Sneider, the host of The Sizzling Mic who stated on Thursday’s episode, who has just about decimated any risk of the actor ever being the brand new Bond.
“Right here’s the one I heard in the present day that was attention-grabbing. Much less of a scoop apart from only a ray of hope, possibly. I’ve heard Aaron Taylor-Johnson’s not a lock for Bond. I don’t assume it’s proper for him. It’s not that I don’t assume he’d make a great Bond, however I don’t know if he wants it.”
This implies Henry Cavill could possibly be again within the operating to get the function. He’s been within the headlines lengthy earlier than he departed from The Witcher and located that his alternative to play Superman once more evaporated lengthy earlier than the ink finalizing the deal of his return even dried. Along with his subsequent mission being Warhammer 40K, if he turns into the subsequent James Bond – sure, we wish to proceed day-dreaming – he would have his palms full between bringing to life the world of an impressive sport and hopping into the sneakers of probably the most badass spy ever.
The chance is mind-exploding however Taylor-Johnson’s exit and probabilities of Cavill as Bond as an alternative are all simply rumors at this level and everybody is aware of how credible these items are.
