Rumors are running rampant that Daniel Craig, the man that has played the same role since 2006, might return to his role in James Bond. To silence those rumors I say: The character was killed off in the last of the James Bond films. Unless they write a script in which his body is taken to Egypt and they pull a Stargate reanimation chamber scene it’s not happening.
Let’s see what Lad Bible had to say about it: Daniel Craig has hung up his spy suit and finished his last shaken martini. However, you can bet he’ll be asked about James Bond for years to come. That’s a no brainer. Sean Connery and Roger Moore were too.
As talks rumble throughout the entertainment gossip pipeline as to who will step into the iconic role next, Craig addressed whether or not he may return to the franchise in the future. He may just. Sean Connery did in a sort-of knock-off Bond film in the nineteen-eighties.
In short, don’t get your hopes up. The character was killed in the last movie.
Speaking on fellow actor Josh Horowitz’s Happy Sad Confused podcast, the now aging 54-year-old Hollywood actor opened up on all manner of topics, including his return as Detective Benoit Blanc for the Knives Out sequel Glass Onion. But at one point in the interview, Horowitz switched the focus to his turn as 007 and asked the question on every fan’s lips.
“You’re going to be asked about this every day the rest of your life, ‘Who should be the next Bond?’ etc,” he says.
“Today as we sit here there are all these rumors about Aaron Taylor-Johnson, a great actor, like have you even heard that?”
But Craig quickly shuts the question down, saying: “I don’t really pay any attention… it’s a lot of noise.
“I mean, I don’t go on the internet and I don’t have a social media account or whatever.”
That’s at least one good redeeming quality.
