Latest Idris Elba As James Bond Rumor Was Completely 'Made Up'

Idris Elba,James Bond,Daniel Craig

As one might expect, many have reacted to this news with less-than-tolerant online comments, given that Elba is black and Bond has historically been white. "I wonder who is on the short list I would love to see #henrycavill in this movie, he mentioned 007 but I'd like see him as the big bad", the tweet reads.

Elba has been a favorite amongst fans hoping to see a non-white actor take on the role of the iconic British spy for quite some time.

"Idris could do it if he was in shape", the director teased. 'You need a guy with a physically strong presence.

Twitter user @wordtoJude felt this news was a long time coming - "IVE BEEN ASKING FOR THIS FOR YEARS".

Vice President Mike Pence , in a Pentagon address, described the creation of the Space Force as "an idea whose time has come". Mr Trump ordered defence officials in June to "immediately" begin work on establishing the new sixth force.

Idris Elba has always been suggested for the role of James Bond after Daniel Craig leaves the role, and with recent rumors suggesting it could possibly happen, a new image reveals what he could look like in the role.

There's also the fact that Elba plans to follow up his directorial debut Yardie with an amibitious adaptation of The Hunchback of Notre Dame, as actor, director, producer and musician - so he may well be too busy for Bond.

However, Elba once insisted that no one is genuinely considering him to play 007. The rumor began circulating again yesterday after The Daily Star published a report in which the tabloid detailed a conversation between director Antoine Fuqua and Bond producer Barbara Broccoli, claiming Broccoli said "it is time" for a diverse actor to take on the role and that she is certain "it will happen eventually". It has now been reported that Luther and Star Trek: Beyond actor Idris Elba is in the running for the role. "That's the part that I'm like, 'Ugh, come on, '" Elba previously told The Independent.
