The race to be the new James Bond
It is clear that becoming James Bond it can be a source of pride for any actor. After the bankruptcy of MGM, the rights of this character were in the hands of Amazon Prime Video, which absorbed the studio that produced the movies. This also caused a delay in the selection of the new interpreter of the agent 007, which will no longer have Daniel Craig as a central figure, due to his fatigue from filming.
Among the main figures that appear with the possibility of being James Bond is it so Tom Hardy and Sam Heughan. Also named Henry Cavill, which seems to have no chances because his face is associated with another franchise (Superman), as well as Idris Elba | and Regé-Jean Page, who could become the first Afro-descendant actors to play the iconic character. In addition, there are those who still do not rule out that a woman can make history and appear for the first time as the figure of this saga.
