There has been one discussion that has been on everyone’s radar: who will be the next James Bond? Daniel Craig offered a memorable tenure as the character since 2006’s Casino Royale before wrapping up his time in the role with 2021’s No Time to Die. Now, the future of the franchise remains uncertain, especially with who might take on the mantle and when we can expect the next entry.
Of course, fans have their own personal choices on who would be fitting for the 007 franchise. Idris Elba has been one of the most popular choices, which even made the rounds that the producers, Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson, openly discussed its inclusion. To kick off the new year, it seems that there’s one frontrunner who has already had talks to take on the role: Aaron Taylor-Johnson.
In a new report by Puck, it seems that Taylor-Johnson has sat down with the producers on potentially taking the role. While it doesn’t mean he’ll definitely be our next bond, the fact that the meetings went well would give him a good chance. He does make for a good choice in the role, though it would be a shame if they don’t venture out more to find their next James Bond.
We still have to wait a bit longer before they start working on the next entry of the 007 era, but we do have a reality TV series in development at Amazon to tie us over. If talks do continue this year, we may know who is the next Bond by the time we inch closer to 2024.
