RUMOUR: Tom Hardy is the next James Bond PLUS New poster for No Time To Die

September 20th, 2020 by Marc Comments

Second big rumour of the day following the news that Henry Cavill may be back as Superman (here) and this time it’s for another sort of hero.

Word is that after Daniel Craig hands in the Walter PPK and his license to kill after No Time To Die, The Dark Knight Rises and Inception star Tom Hardy will be stepping into the iconic role of James Bond 007.

Now, we have heard many names attached to this role from the like of Cillian Murphy, Idris Elba and even the aforementioned Cavill, but this new rumour – which seems to be gathering steam – has it that Hardy has beaten out all the competition to get the most famous number in cinema.

And apparently it’s been his since June when he auditioned for the gig.

It seems too – and this would make sense –  that official announcing of his casting will be held back until after the new Bond movie hits cinema screens so as not to take away from Craig’s final performance in the role.

So what say you all? Is Hardy your choice for Bond? Had you someone else you’d rather see in the role? I want to know, guys.

Oh, and here’s the new poster for No Time To Die:

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
