“No time to die” finally appeared in theaters this year and Daniel Craig was allowed to play James Bond one last time. However, the 25th film in the series was also the actor’s last spy flick and thus Craig says goodbye to the franchise that he shaped for several years. Now, however, fans are wondering who could embody the popular figure next and actually has now Dwayne Johnson brought into conversation.

In an interview with Esquire, the actor also revealed his exciting motivation. His grandfather Peter Fanene Maivia played a very special role in the James Bond film “You Only Live Twice”, which came out in 1967: “Yes, my grandfather was a Bond villain in ‘You Only Live Twice’ with Sean Connery. It was very, very, cool. I would love to follow in his footsteps and be the Bond. I don’t want to be a bad guy. I want to be Bond. “

That sounds like a pretty ambitious plan, but anyone who follows Johnson on social media knows that if the actor sets out to do something, he’ll give everything for it. The actor has always dreamed of playing a superhero and in the future we will see him in the DC movie “Black Adam”. In addition, Johnson already showed in the Netflix hit “Red Notice” that a tuxedo suits him and that he is available for action scenes. However, the Hollywood star has a lot of competition, which you can see in our video:

Who is the favorite for the James Bond role?

It is difficult to answer who is a potential successor because there has not yet been any official news about the next James Bond film. In any case, according to betting providers “Venom” star Tom Hardy could currently have a good chance of playing the role, who shares first place with “Resident Evil” star Tom Hopper. Nevertheless, there is always a change of favorites, so that actors like Regé-Jean Page, Henry Cavill and Idris Elba are also possible candidates.

With most of the potential successors being all British, it could be difficult for Dwayne Johnson given that he is from the United States. Until the next James Bond is announced, fans have to be patient. According to producer Barbara Broccoli, it won’t be thought about until 2022 and maybe in the end the race will be won by a person who had no one on the screen.
