Idris Elba has this afternoon posted a cryptic tweet suggesting he could be the next James Bond. Days after reports that a producer of the franchise is tipping him to be 007, he posted: “My name’s Elba, Idris Elba”.
Fans are taking it as a big hint that he could be about to take on the role when Daniel Craig leaves next year. There have been rumours linking Idris to the Bond role since 2014, which he’s neither confirmed nor denied.
Daniel Craig mentioned last year that he wouldn’t be returning to the British Spy role as James Bond because he’s over it—and his contract has ended with no possible talks of extension.
At the time, Daniel said he’d rather ‘slash his wrists’ than play James Bond again.

Most of us were disappointed about his disrespect for justice, fearing his action would give certain people the signal that you can attack a journalist and go free—provided you have enough money.
When Daniel Kenu withdrew his case, I wrote an article titled- Ghana, A Journalist Gets Beaten for Asking a Question | He Sues for Assault/Battery & Then DROPS the Case…What Does that Tell You?
In the article, I stated among other things that…
“Money seems like the most powerful tool in our today’s world but there is another salient instrument that can axe down the might of money—that is integrity and justice. So we were looking forward to an interesting battle between money and integrity, to be refereed by Justice.
For the James Bond fans out there like me, the movie franchise that has been running for more than half a century is coming back as Daniel Craig returns to set in London to shoot the 24th installment of the spy drama. According to Variety, Daniel Craig, 46, will pull on his tuxedo once again, having … Read more
