Once again, speculation is rife about who will assume the iconic role of James Bond, fueled by reports suggesting that British actor Aaron Taylor-Johnson has been offered the part.

According to The Sun, known for his roles in “Kick-Ass” and Marvel films, Taylor-Johnson has been formally offered the role of the suave 007 spy, previously portrayed by Daniel Craig.

Craig departed from the role in 2021 after featuring in five films over a span of 16 years. The upcoming Bond film will be the 26th installment, following “No Time to Die.”

The BBC has reached out to both Taylor-Johnson and Eon Productions for comment. In a recent interview with Numero magazine, Taylor-Johnson expressed appreciation for the rumors linking him to the role, describing it as “charming and wonderful” that people envision him in that capacity.

“I take it as a great compliment,” he added.

The actor, 33, who starred as John Lennon in the biopic Nowhere Boy in 2009, is now favourite with the bookmakers to play the role.

He also starred in thriller Nocturnal Animals, which he won a Golden Globe for in 2017, Anna Karenina, Godzilla and Tenet.

The likes of Tom Hardy, Idris Elba and Chris Evans are other names that have been mentioned.

But Elba, 51, acknowledged that he might now be “too old” to take on the role, given if he stayed on for as long as Daniel Craig did, he would be 66.

Producers do not necessarily choose the biggest name for the role, after all, Daniel Craig’s name was not at the forefront in the year after Pierce Brosnan’s final Bond film in 2002.

Speaking of Brosnan, he recently told the BBC that his fellow Irishman and Oscar winner Cillian Murphy would make a “magnificent” 007.

Brosnan has also previously said that Bridgerton heartthrob Regé-Jean Page would make a “wonderful” Bond.
