Rumor: Henry Cavill To Be The Next James Bond


Crazy Days and Nights is a renowned Hollywood insider gossip website that often puts up wild guesses, bulrbs that suggest the real identities of their topic without explicitly naming them, has created a rumor. It has revealed Cavill and James Bond in a follow up update.

“The producers of this long running franchise don’t care at all about the cloud swirling around the head of this foreign born former superhero,” this September 13th blurb mentions “They want to cast him as their next replacement.” A subsequent update on September 20 revealed that the iconic franchise was Bond and the foreign born ex-superhero was none other than the British movie star Henry Cavill, who has played Superman in three films made by DC Films.

Last week, news had come out about Cavill leaving the legendary superhero character, but, an ambiguous video that Cavill had posted on Instagram indicated that the five-year run of Cavill as Superman as is not yet over.

Dany Garcia, the manager of Henry Cavill, tweeted  “the cape is still in his closet,” and he further added that the producers Warner Bros. “has been and continues to be our partners as they evolve the DC Universe.”

Responding to a situation by issuing a statement that was released via The Hollywood Reporter, Warner Bros. mentioned that  “no decisions have been made regarding any upcoming Superman films,” but that the studio has “always had great respect for and a great relationship with Henry Cavill, and that remains unchanged.”

Cavill had played a secret agent in the movie Man From U.N.C.L.E., directed by Guy Ritchie, and he recently tasted success as a mustached villainous spy in the blockbuster film Mission: Impossible – Fallout during the summer. He earlier told Yahoo Movies that he wishes to play James Bond and would be happy to take up the role if it comes his way.

“I think Bond would be a really fun role,” Cavill said. “It’s British, it’s cool. I think now that I have my Mission: Impossible badge we can do real stunts and really amp it up as well.”

He added: “Not to say they weren’t doing real stunts — I’m just saying it would be fun for me to actually take what I’ve learnt on this and carry it through to a movie like Bond. I’d love to play a Brit — I don’t get to play a Brit very often. So yes, I would love the opportunity and if they were to ask, I would say yes.”

Daniel Craig has his fifth James Bond movie coming up in the form of the under-production Bond 25, and he wishes that the iconic film should also be his last film as James Bond, despite a report last summer that claimed Craig would star in 25 and 26.

During an appearance on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, last year, Daniel Craig had said about Bond 25, “I think this is it. I just want to go out on a high note. I can’t wait.”

It is expected that the exit of the original director Danny Boyle will not derail Bond 25 from its original release schedule of November 6, 2019.
