For the previous few years, we’ve heard numerous rumors concerning who might be solid as the following James Bond. Will or not it’s a male or a feminine? Will or not it’s an individual of colour? Honestly, we’ve no concept. Isn’t it about time the James Bond individuals simply tell us?
There’s a protracted listing of fan favorites for the position, together with Richard Madden, Idris Elba, and Outlander’s Sam Heughan. I might love that final one, however you recognize who may very well be even higher? Bridgerton’s Regé-Jean Page. Doesn’t that sound like the proper casting?
While I would suppose so, James Bond producer Barbara Broccoli claims that, “Nobody’s in the running.” But that definitely won’t cease us from dreaming and speculating, even when Broccoli claims the following movie is “at least two years away.”
Regé-Jean Page as the following 007? Yes, please.
Ever since Bridgerton was launched on Netflix, Page has gained hundreds of thousands of followers. As the Duke of Hastings, he solid a spell on all of us together with his selfishly attractiveness and that incredible British accent. And Page’s attraction has gone up ten-fold after showing in Netflix’s The Gray Man alongside Chris Evans and Ryan Gosling. I imply, that’s as Bond as you will get with out truly doing a Bond movie, so I believe he’s already confirmed his means to be a badass tremendous spy.
The Gray Man was directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, the identical guys behind motion pictures like Avengers: Infinity War and Endgame, and they’re absolutely behind Regé-Jean Page turning into James Bond. “He’s fantastic,” Joe informed Radio Times. “I mean, he has more charisma in his pinky than most people do in their entire body. So you know, we’d watch him do anything—I mean, we’d watch him read the phonebook!” Same, Joe.
This sort of hypothesis will not cease till they solid the following James Bond. Your transfer, Broccoli.
