The tweet was by many Bondfans interpreted as confirmation that Elba in the role of James Bond. Idris’ name sings since 2014 around as the successor of Daniel Craig. Craig crawled five times in the skin of 007 and dropped in 2016 already know to be ready with the character. Still, he allowed himself to be persuaded to have one more Bond to play in the 25th film in October next year cinemas will appear.
A few hours after Elba, the news of the world took it with a handful of words, again followed a tweet. “Believe the hype”, wrote the actor. Or he denies that he is Bond going to play, is the big question.
Bond producer Barbara Broccoli threw Friday oil on the fire by stating that it is about time that 007 is played by a non-white actor. Elba would be at the top of her wish list. The 45-year-old actor himself denied several times that he is the secret agent going to play, because he is too old.
