Until a while ago, Tom Hardy probably had the best chances for the James Bond role, but now another actor could compete with the “Venom” star.
After a number of delays and postponements, “No Time to Die” has finally been released in theaters and that ended an era because Daniel Craig will no longer play James Bond. The British actor played the iconic agent for over 15 years, but now the star is making room for a potential successor. Who will grab the popular role next is the big question and to be able to calculate the chances of the future James Bond, the so-called bond odds are used, which are based on odds from betting providers.

So far, Tom Hardy has been in conversation again and again and at times led the bond odds, but according to the betting company Ladbrokes (via Express) something has now happened, because the “Venom” star is currently sharing pole position with Tom Hopper. Most of the people know the actor as Luther from the superhero series “The Umbrella Academy”. In addition, the Briton recently played in films such as “Killer’s Bodyguard 2” and “Terminator: Dark Fate”.
We will soon see the actor in “Resident Evil: Welcom to Raccoon City”, in which Hopper plays none other than Albert Wesker. Perhaps the video game adaptation could have something to do with why the actor has the best chance at the Bond role. You can find out which other potential candidates are suitable for the role of agent in our video:
When will the new James Bond be announced?
While Tom Hardy and Tom Hopper share first place, “Eternals” star Richard Madden is right behind them and is thus 3rd place. Certainly, his chances have increased with the recently released Marvel film, but the actor himself actually wants from them Heard no more rumors about James Bond. Otherwise we find the usual suspects like “Bridgerton” star Regé-Jean Page, Henry Cavill and Idris Elba in the other places.
It must be mentioned here that the bond odds are only based on odds from a betting provider. So it is quite possible that there may be completely different candidates higher up that we currently have not on our screen at all. Who will be the next Bond remains an exciting mystery and, according to James Bond producer Barbara Broccoli, you will still take your time choosing. Those responsible do not want to deal with the question until 2022. The successor could possibly also be announced during this period.[display-posts orderby="rand"]
Fans have to be patient for better or worse. Those who have not yet done so can now watch “No Time to Die” in some cinemas.
