Many are vying for the new title role of 007 in the James Bond franchise, but many and many more will be increasingly disappointed to learn that they will NOT be playing the lead role of the character spanning more than half a century. In the more recent days, Tom Hardy has had to face the brunt of the bad news that just because a select few think he might be cool – is NOT going to make him a cut above the rest who might just play the next James Bond.
As per the EXPRESS.CO.UK, Tom Hardy starred in Christopher Nolan’s wartime epic Dunkirk on BBC Two. While he plays the spy-esque pilot in the historical-fiction movie, he has recently been suggested as the next James Bond. After Daniel Craig stepped down from the series following No Time To Die, Hardy has been a favorite with fans – but his odds aren’t getting any better. In fact, they are nowhere near any hope of success.
Hardy has been at the forefront of the Bond odds conversation since Craig stepped down from the role. The official announcement of his replacement will likely come next year, but until then the odds are fans’ best way to see what’s going on behind the scenes.
Hardy’s odds have changed continuously since No Time To Die hit cinemas in 2021, but now they are at the absolute lowest and least likely ever. At the moment, Ladbrokes have given Hardy 10/1 odds on becoming Craig’s replacement in the next Bond movie – and it is no surprise why.
