Breaking: Aaron Taylor Johnson considered frontrunning to become the next James Bond

Daniel Craig, the previous 007, finished filming the franchise’s last film last year. Surprisingly, “Casino Royale” and “Skyfall,” acted by Daniel Craig, are two of the franchise’s top five films.

After it was revealed in 2020 that No Time To Die would mark Daniel Craig’s final performance as the legendary lead, speculation over the successor to one of Britain’s most renowned and iconic film franchises has been rife ever since. The whispers have been getting louder lately, and most point to Aaron Taylor-Johnson as the likely candidate to succeed Craig.

As a result of Taylor-successful Johnson’s covert audition with Bond producer Barbara Broccoli at Pinewood Studios in November, his casting will be announced in the spring of 2023.

“Aaron has wowed employers so immensely that he has recorded one of the franchise’s renowned gun barrel teaser scenes, which all the Bond actors perform,” a film insider said to the publication. He becomes one step closer to signing a contract with that action.

His distinct blending of acting ferocity and his amazing body of action flicks greatly thrilled the brand’s bosses. The 32-year-old British actor is most known for his roles as Pietro, a.k.a. Quicksilver, in Avengers: Age of Ultron in the films Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging, Kick-Ass, and Age of Ultron.

With bookmaker William Hill, Taylore-Johnson, who played in Tenet and Bullet Train, is currently at 4/5 odds to be the next 007.

Idris Elba allegedly walked away from negotiations to take over as the next James Bond to pursue “his own film franchise” earlier this year.

Rege-Jean Page, 34, and Henry Cavill, 39, were listed as the bookies’ favorites for the role after Idris Elba withdrew from consideration. Producers, meanwhile, reportedly want the new Bond to be younger than 40 and taller than 5 feet 10 inches (178cm).

In August, a source informed the Daily Star that Eon Productions was looking for a “fresh-faced” replacement for Craig. They stated that hiring an actor in his “late 30s” would enable him to play the part for at least ten years or perhaps three movies. The movie’s filming will officially start in the winter of 2023.

Taylor-Johnson is attached to The King’s Man sequel and several other high-profile forthcoming films like Kraven the Hunter. The third installment in the series, The King’s Man, released in 2021, functioned as a prequel describing the beginnings of the secret agency. 

Aaron Taylor-Johnson performed Archie Reid, the group’s first “Lancelot,” in a minor capacity. This hinted at a bigger factor for the actor in a planned sequel. The Kingsmen films are homages to the Roger Moore Bond flicks. If Taylor-Johnson is released as 007, that would be a bigger reward than starring in The Kingsman 2.

Taylor-Johnson has starred in several noteworthy films but still has yet to land the same part that would launch him to stardom. Before his portrayal of Bond in Casino Royale, Craig was a well-regarded character actor, but that Bond movie immediately changed his life. 

Taylor-Johnson would benefit similarly from being cast as 007, and the fact that he’s British and extremely attractive on top of that won’t hinder his chances either. Understandably, Matthew Vaughn believed he would make a fantastic 007 avatar for a Kings Man sequel, but this may be the only time the Bond narrative draws influence from the Kingsmen films.
