After the last James Bond film comes out featuring Daniel Craig a new James Bond will have to be crowned and there’s been a lot of debate on who should play the iconic character. Some think Tom Hiddleston, who you may know for his role as the God of Mischief, Loki, should be the new James Bond. Rumors began circling that Idris Elba would take the role and become the first black James Bond. Those rumors have recently, however, been debunked. And then there are, of course, other British-born actors that could take the role but I think the next man to play the iconic James Bond should be Superman himself, Henry Cavill, and this is why.
1. He’s Handsome
The first aspect that every James Bond needs to have is the looks. Well, Henry Cavill definitely has those in abundance so that’s not going to be a problem. 🙂
2. He’s Actually British
A lot of the roles Mr. Cavill has been playing lately requires him to have an American accent but in actuality he’s British. So that’s another check off the checklist.
3. We’ve Seen Him In An A+ Action Flick
Before Mission: Impossible-Fallout I hadn’t seen him in any roles besides his role as Superman so I wasn’t sure how he’d play out in the latest Mission: Impossible flick. Well, he was GREAT!
He displayed that he has the acting chops to take on an action-packed character like James Bond without being corny in the slightest. The entire time I watched this movie I didn’t see him as Superman. I saw him as the CIA agent that he was playing. And he was awesome.
With him playing the role of James Bond I know he’s perfectly capable of performing the stunts he needs to make a James Bond film truly epic.
4. He’s Good With the Ladies
And last but not least, you can’t be James Bond if you can’t handle the romantic side of things properly and Henry Cavill has definitely displayed that he can be quite the lady’s man as well. Just watch Batman vs. Superman.
So, yeah, Henry Cavill checks out on these four, very important aspects to being an awesome James Bond and I hope he ends up getting the role, with Christopher Nolan (Interstellar, The Dark Knight) directing. That’ll be the first James Bond movie I actually want to watch.
Who do you think should be the next James bond? I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments below.
