It is thought that Idris Elba is in talks to play James Bond again and he is in contention to play the role.

In lieu of taking over from Daniel Craig, London-born star Tom Hardy discussed the possibility of portraying a villain in the next film.

However, I can reveal he has now been considered the next 007 after scoring highly in market research tests.

It was reported last year that Idris was being considered for an antagonist role in the next era of James Bond.

As producers conducted secret market research, they realized how popular he would be and therefore started talks about him playing the lead.

The diverse group of movie buffs invited to participate rated him highly. They wanted to see him as a hero, not as a nemesis.

In No Time To Die last year, Daniel stepped down after five films as the world-famous spy.

Earlier this year, Barbara Broccoli revealed that Idris was considered to take over the role.

Idris is a friend of mine, we know him. He's an amazing actor.

It is always difficult to have a conversation when someone else is in the room."

As Idris said in 2019, "James Bond is an iconic, beloved character that takes audiences on a massive journey of escapism.

Of course, if they asked me if I wanted to play James Bond, I’d be like, ‘Yeah!’
