No Time To Die will be the last time that Daniel Craig will play the character of James Bond. Due to this, a new James Bond actor is expected to be cast in the near future.

A person that wants to take on the mantle is Henry Cavill. People may know him best as the current day version of Superman.

Cavill admitted he wants the role during an interview with GQ. You can read what he had to say down below.

"If Barbara [Bond producer Barbara Broccoli] and Mike [co-producer Michael G. Wilson] were interested in that, I would absolutely jump at the opportunity. At this stage, it’s all up in the air. We’ll see what happens. But yes, I would love to play Bond, it would be very, very exciting".

Cavill nearly played James Bond back in 2006 as director Martin Campbell wanted him in Casino Royale. That didn't happen because the producers wanted Daniel Craig instead.

Whether or not he will become Bond is up in the air at the moment.

Rumors have circulated that Tom Hardy is a front-runner to be Daniel Craig's successor. Hardy is also British and has the acting chops to be an action star.

All this won't be discussed until No Time To Die is in the distant past.

As for now, we can finally look forward to the movie when it releases worldwide this November. Covid-19 is currently not stopping the film from being released at the moment.
