Following Daniel Craig’s departure from the role of James Bond in No Time To Die, fans have wondered who’ll be the next actor to take up the role of 007. Captain America actor Chris Evans weighed in on the debate for Britain’s next top spy, supporting Avengers: Age of Ultron co-star Aaron Taylor-Johnson for the role.
This endorsement came during a WIRED Autocomplete Interview with Ghosted co-star Ana De Armas. Following a question to Armas about if she truly was a Bond girl despite her small role in No Time To Die, the two were asked if they had any thoughts on who should play the next Bond. After throwing his name in to play the next Bond girl, Chris Evans threw his weight behind his former Avengers co-star, saying “I’m a big Aaron Taylor-Johnson guy.”
Chris Evans seemingly isn’t the only one with Taylor-Johnson at the top of their list to play Bond. According to insiders, Taylor-Johnson has had a number of fruitful meetings with producers. The actor also isn’t a freshman to action films, having starred in the Kick-Ass series as well as last year’s Bullet Train. Taylor-Johnson is also set to make his debut as the Marvel villain Kraven the Hunter in October.
No Time To Die marked the end of Daniel Craig’s tenure as James Bond, with his incarnation of 007 meeting his demise. The shock ending brought the latest Bond era to a pretty definitive conclusion. Now the hunt is on for a new Bond as producers prepare to reimagine the franchise.
James Bond producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli have yet to find Daniel Craig’s 007 successor the two recently teased that he would be a “thirty-something” year old actor. Craig carried the franchise for 15 years, so the next 007 actor is expected to play the character for multiple movies.
