Ever since long James Bond-playing actor Daniel Craig had finished his film No Time To Die last year, fans have been speculating who will be up next in fulfilling the 007 role. While most fans have been eyeing on Henry Cavill ever since his departure from The Witcher and recently, his DC exit from Man of Steel, there’s been another speculated actor to be up to the task.

There have been rumors that the next Bond is set to be played by a younger actor, and that is Aaron Taylor-Johnson, who is known for his prominent roles in Kick-Ass, Godzilla (2014), Avengers: Age of Ultron, Bullet Train, and Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging (2008). In an attempt to verify if this is merely a rumored casting or legitimate, Daniel Craig addresses this in a recent interview with Josh Horowitz.

“I don’t really pay it any attention. I just — it’s a lot of noise. I don’t really go on the internet, I don’t have a social media account or whatever it’s called… it is what it is.”

Not long ago, the actor even addressed his supposed Doctor Strange 2 cameo rumor, denying it was ever a thing, calling it a part of the “lockdown craziness.” However, when asked if he would be supporting the next Bond, the actor replies with, “Yeah, of course. I’ll be front and center.”

Interestingly, he had also previously shared his thoughts if he were ever to be cast again as James Bond, Craig said that he had already done everything he wanted with the part.

“I had an incredibly fortunate 17 years of my life making this. I literally wanted to spend the next 20 years of my life trying to unhook it all and try and put it into a place because it was incredible. I left it where I wanted it to be. And that I was given the chance to do that with the last movie.”
