It’s been a year and a half since Daniel Craig ended his time as James Bond with No Time To Die. Speculation about who the new 007 will be has swirled for months, if not years, with the likes of Henry Cavill, Reggae Jean Page, and Tom Hardy receiving fan support. One of the biggest rumors is that Aaron Taylor-Johnson auditioned for and fell in love with producer Barbara Broccoli. In fact, during one of his recent interviews, the 32-year-old gave a very coy response to all the nagging around him.
In a previous interview with Vanity Fair, Taylor-Johnson said, “It’s fun. You can get really positive about it.” [written about you], but you can also have something really negative that can be generalized. You just want to stay in your lane, stay grounded, stay around the people you love and love, and stay in this world.
“Because the minute you start to believe that the people talking about you are talking about you, you’ve lost your cool mind. You’ve lost it.” However, there is now a new report that casts doubt on the Kick-Ass actor becoming the new Bond.
According to scooper Jeff Sneider on The Hot Mic, Taylor Johnson – who is poised to land his A-list star in Kraven the Hunter later this year – may be out of the Bond race.
He said: “Here’s what I heard today. It was interesting. Maybe less than a glimmer of hope. I heard Aaron Taylor-Johnson isn’t a Bond lock. I don’t think it’s a good fit for him. It’s not that I don’t think he’d make a good Bond, but I don’t know if he needs to.” to her “.
Take it with a pinch of salt, but of course, fans of Henry Cavill will rejoice at this news since he’s been at the forefront of next Bond prospects with Taylor Johnson for weeks.

As it stands, both stars are around 5-2 in the bookies to be chosen as the (00) seventh official Bond star. Cavill certainly has the edge in being runner-up to Craig in the 2005 auditions for Casino Royale. However, since he’s turning 40 this year, that might mean he’s missed the boat.
Whatever the case, Broccoli isn’t going to mince words about what’s going on behind the scenes. On the BAFTA red carpet, she told LADBible: “No, we haven’t even started casting yet. There isn’t even a script.” This was about a month ago, so hopefully there will be some official news in the not too distant future.
