English actors Tom Hiddleston and Idris Elba are rumored to be replacing Daniel Craig in the next series of James Bond. Recently these two stars were spotted joking, giggling with each other over dinner last week.
As reported earlier, since these actors were the two most potential candidates to be cast as 007, they have been going head-to-head in a competition to be Craig’s descendant. However, the last week’s meet portrayed a completely different picture of Tom and Idris’ relationship.
Are they really feuding over the role? Or is it their bonding which overpowers even the role of the Bond itself?
Idris Elba & Tom Hiddleston
Hiddleston, 35 and Elba, 43 shared the screen on “Thor: The Dark World” earlier as Loki and Heimdall. The Brit stars went to attend Anna Wintour’s pre-Met Gala dinner on Sunday night. Both of them were looking equally urbane and handsome. Idris made it to the dinner wearing a black roll-neck and navy velvet blazer whereas Tom nailed it in a maroon three-piece suit. After leaving the US Vogue editor’s home, Idris Elba and Tom Hiddleston shared a joke and started to chuckle, appearing like the best of friends.
Hello doubts, could they be discussing who will be the next Bond?
Rumors started to make rounds over the future of James Bond towards the end of last year, when the 48-year-old Daniel seemed to confirm leaving Bond’s throne.
Questioned by Time Out, if he would be returning as the super spy in the upcoming James Bond sequel, Daniel replied: “Now? I’d rather slash my wrists. No, not at the moment. Not at all. That’s fine. I’m over it at the moment, we’re done. All I want to do is move on.”
A few other relevant sources also revealed that the audience may see “Hobbit Star” Aidan Turner as the Next James Bond, replacing Daniel Craig.
