Next Bond: The Rock admits ‘I’d like to play 007’ but backs DC star – not Henry Cavill | movies | entertainment

More than a year after Daniel Craig still pulled out as James Bond in No Time To Die, fans are still speculating about who the new 007 will be. Henry Cavill may be a bookie favorite, but after his brilliant appearance in Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam, his hopes for his next murder license may be dashed. However, The Rock himself is fantasizing about the role of Bond himself, but ultimately supports another star in the entire DC.

LADbible has polled its fans about which Dwayne franchise they should tackle next with options like James Bond, Harry Potter, Star Wars, and Lord of the Rings.

They voted overwhelmingly for 007 with 59 percent of the vote compared to 15 percent for J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World and 13 percent for the other two.

The Rock noted, “Did you know that my grandfather was in You Only Live Twice? He was a bad guy at You Only Live Twice. He had an amazing fight scene with Sean Connery.”

Peter Maivia’s 50-year-old cousin was a Samoan chief and professional wrestler who threw the original 007 through a Japanese screen door in the 1967 movie.

However, Connery picked up a sofa with incredible ease for his discussion as Grandfather of the Rock used a samurai sword to strike Bond. However, in the end, 007 took out the henchmen with a stone statue.

On the idea of ​​appearing in a future movie in the spy series, Dwayne said, “I would easily say James Bond [is one I’d love to do]. “

When asked if he would like to play a Bond villain, he replied, “No! I see myself as James Bond. F**k villain!” [An American Bond?] It could happen, right? It’s like playing Henry Cavill’s Superman.” However, he ended up supporting another superstar.

The Rock said, “I love the idea of ​​my son Idris Elba being James Bond even though it’s true? I love that idea so much. So I’m going to advocate for it. For him Bond? Yes.”

Elba, also 50, played Bloodsport in The Suicide Squad, which takes place in DCEU, the same universe as Black Adam and Cavill’s Superman.

However, talk to diverse Producer Barbara Broccoli said last month, “We love Idris. The thing is, there’s going to be a few years off. And when we cast Bond, it’s a commitment for 10, 12 years. So he’s probably thinking, ‘Do I really want this thing?’ Not everyone wants to do this.” So, it was hard to get it [Daniel Craig to do it]. “

Bond producer Michael J. Wilson also said that the role is ideal for someone in their 30s, which excludes Elba and The Rock.

However, they will likely play the villain one day, as does Casino Royale runner-up Cavell, who turns 40 next year.

As for the odds, Superman’s star is around 4-1, Regé-Jean Page leads the group 3-1, while Elba is at 10-1.

Interestingly, Dwayne has a better chance of winning the 2024 presidential election at 40-1 than becoming Bond at 50-1.
