Idris Elba Is Back in Talks to Be the Next James Bond

"It is time" for an ethnic minority actor to star as 007 and she is certain "it will happen eventually", Fuqua reportedly said.

As the caption makes mention of, Henry Cavill has also been someone fans could see taking the role after Craig, and in a recent interview, he seemed to be down for the idea as well.

According to The Independent, The Equalizer 2 director Antoine Fuqua revealed details of a conversation he had with Bond producer Barbara Broccoli, stating that she said "it is time" for a non-white actor to portray the British super-spy. And now, even though Daniel Craig is back for likely one final round in Danny Boyle's Bond 25, it appears Elba is still a focal point of the "next Bond' conversation - whether he's interested in the role or not". You need a guy with physically strong presence. But one name keeps coming up: Idris Elba.

Elba, 45, was rumored to be the next James Bond in 2014 following the hack into Sony Pictures' emails.

Twitter user @wordtoJude felt this news was a long time coming - "IVE BEEN ASKING FOR THIS FOR YEARS".

The Luther star has made the point himself, and shrugged off rumours in 2016, commenting: "I think I'm too old for that man, running around in cars and ladies and martinis, who wants to do that?"

Despite the entire WhatCulture office - and most of you, probably - demanding that I be cast as the next Bond, producers might actually be honing in on some else to play the role. "It could be a woman - could be a black woman, could be a white woman - but I think, that character, everybody would like to see it something different with it, why not?"
