Idris Elba is expected to replace Daniel Craig as 007 in the hit franchise. However, in a new interview, Idris now suspects that his window of opportunity may have closed.

When asked about rumors about the role of Bond, Idris explained: “I’m 50 years old this year. Let’s say you sign up for three movies – no one wants to see Bond chasing or beating guys when he’s 60 years old

. I have probably too old to take on this role now.”

Despite this, the London-born star would like to one day appear in a Bond film. He told The Sun on Sunday: “If I have the opportunity to participate and the role is right for me, why not? It’s incredible to be a Bond villain.”

Peaky Blinders star Kingsley Ben-Adir is also said to be in the running to play Bond.

An insider described the 36-year-old actor as a “shrewd” choice for producers.

The source said: “Kingsley is a shrewd and exciting choice.

He’s British, extremely talented and handsome. At 36, he’s the perfect age to take on the role of Bond in a another decade”.

Meanwhile, Henry Cavill previously admitted he “wanted to explore” the idea of ​​playing a Bond villain.

The actor – who is best known for playing Superman – is keen to talk to the long-running series’ producers about starring in a Bond film.

Henry – who was considered for the role before Daniel Craig was cast as 007 – said: “If Barbara Broccoli and Michael G.

Wilson were interested in me in any capacity to be in their movie, I would be happy to have that discussion, and it would be something I would love to explore further.”
