After there have been many rumors and discussions about the successor to Daniel Craig in recent months, those responsible are still relaxed at the moment. According to producer Barbara Broccoli, no one wants to think about the replacement of James Bond until next year. Accordingly, you want to celebrate his farewell with Daniel Craig first – and in 2022 you will then take care of the future.

“No Time to Die” starts in cinemas on Thursday. The start had to be postponed several times due to the pandemic. It is the fifth and last appearance of Daniel Craig, who was in front of the camera for the first time as James Bond in 2006. Now it seems to be clear that the main role of the agent will continue to be played by a male leading actor. Barbara Broccoli said in an interview with the Daily Mail that James Bond will remain male – at least as long as she has the future of the series in her hands as a producer:

“James Bond is a male character. But I hope there will be many, many films with women – for women, by women, about women.” – said Barbara Broccoli in conversation.

The rumors of a female Bond successor have sparked much discussion on the internet. Even Daniel Craig has commented on the subject – his statements essentially agree with those of the producer. In the past few months, some names have already appeared that are supposed to be in the shortlist. These include Idris Elba, Tom Hardy and Regé-Jean Page. Just recently, Barbara Broccoli explained the lengthy process behind the search for the next James Bond actor.
