Tom Hardy Will Be Taking Over The Role Of James Bond, The Vulcan Reporter Says

According to The Vulcan Reporter, the ‘Venom’ star Tom Hardy has been set to portray the legendary British MI6 agent created in 1953 by writer Ian Fleming, ‘James Bond’ and replace the latest Bond, Daniel Craig after ‘No Time To Die.’

As known, because the ‘No Time to Die’ will be Craig’s final outing in the ‘James Bond’ series Craig’s successor has been wondered for a while. The rumor regarding Hardy came out when Vulcan Reporter’s Film/TV news reporter Emre Kaya tweeted the below message:

I heard about this news back in June. At that point, Hardy’s casting wasn’t official but he had been auditioning and was basically locked into the role. It’s similar to how Craig said that he got the role of Bond and then months later it was officially announced.”

Then Kaya wrote a long statement and claimed that Tom Hardy was expected to be announced as the new James Bond in November, however, the announcement in November would not happen because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Even though the casting hasn’t been officially confirmed the statement continued:

“Nevertheless, I anticipate the announcement to come out this year all the same. Early 2021 also seems likely, if No Time to Die gets delayed again.”

As remember, the legendary character ‘James Bond’ was first played Sean Connery in five subsequent films between 1962 and 1967, then George Lazenby replaced Connery in 1969. After just one movie, Sean Connery appeared again as the agent in 1971. Later, Roger Moore portrayed ‘Bond’ in seven different productions. From 1987 to 2020, Timothy Dalton, Pierce Brosnan, and Daniel Craig respectively played the role.
