Fans have been keen to see comedian Henry Cavill become the new James Bond for a while now after Daniel Craig retires. However, the interpreter of Superman would rather camp a villain in the 007 franchise.
To die can wait : Daniel Craig’s last lap
Expected at the cinema on October 6, To die can wait marks Daniel Craig’s last appearance as James Bond. Directed by Cary Fukunaga, the feature film is the 25th movie James bond. While the work has already been shown to the French press, fans will have to wait a few more days. Recently, Barbara Broccoli, one of the licensed producers, said that no successor to Daniel Craig will be sought for the moment. The saga should therefore take a little break before casting a new actor in the skin of the hero.
Of many names are spinning on the web as to the potential successor of Daniel Craig. Those who come back most often are Idris Elba, Tom Hiddleston and Henry Cavill. But the latter has other projects.
Henry Cavill as super-villain of James bond ?
Henry Cavill already has a busy career and has embodied characters impacting pop-culture. While he is the face of Superman in the DC Extended Universe and Geralt in The Witcher, he also toured with Guy Ritchie in UNCLE code and also recently became the face of sherlock holmes in Enola Holmes.
In a recent interview, Henry Cavill has said he is ready to play a villain in the future James bond. A way for him to let the various producers know his interest in the license. After all, the idea is not stupid, especially when one sees his very effective work in the skin of an antagonist in Mission Impossible – Fallout.
If Henry Cavill were to take on the role of a villain, it would allow the franchise to try something different since most of 007’s enemies have a physical deformity. Henry Cavill has more the physique of a hero than an antagonist, which would create an interesting shift.
If Barbara and Michael in any way wanted me to be a part of their films, then I would gladly have this discussion. I would be very happy to explore this voice “.
