Fans want Idris to be new James Bond

Idris Elba gave his statement that reads “it is not a goal for my career. I don’t think that playing Bond will satisfy some of my personal goals. It will definitely satisfy the will of a nation.”

“I’m not gonna lie, every corner of the world I go to, and I’m talking about different cultures, they always go ‘Bond’.”

“And I feel it is beyond me at this junction. It’s beyond me. It’s not a question of, should I, do I, Will I. It is what the will of the nation dictates sometimes.”


In an interview with The Shop Podcast, Idris also confirmed that he is not interested in playing James Bond. He is not that guy to be 007 but happy to be the fan-cast as the first ever black James.

At the age of 50, Elba might not be interested in Bond but fans and producers have not lost their hope yet. Until it’s decided who is going to be the next Bond, Elba will be on the table.
