Reportedly, a Marvel actor has been officially offered the coveted role of James Bond, the iconic British spy.

British actor Aaron Taylor-Johnson, known for roles such as Quicksilver in Avengers: Age Of Ultron, has been formally presented with the opportunity to succeed Daniel Craig as the next James Bond.

Eon Productions, the renowned maker of the Bond franchise, is poised to commence filming later this year.

A source revealed to The Sun, “Bond is Aaron’s job, should he wish to accept it. The formal offer is on the table, and they are awaiting his response.”

The source continued, “As far as Eon is concerned, Aaron is going to sign his contract in the coming days, and they can begin preparing for the momentous announcement.”

The journey to this pivotal juncture has been arduous, with the project facing numerous delays attributable to last year’s writer’s strikes. Nonetheless, recent reports indicate that progress is underway with the scripting process, and production is slated to unfold at Pinewood Studios in the UK.

Taylor-Johnson emerged as a frontrunner for the iconic role, contending against a roster of esteemed actors such as Cillian Murphy, Idris Elba, and Henry Cavill.


Expressing his gratitude for being considered for the role, Taylor-Johnson remarked just last week, “I find it charming and wonderful that people see me in that role. I take it as a great compliment.”

In a report from The Sun last year, it was disclosed that the actor had entered contention for the coveted role after undergoing a clandestine screen test for franchise overseer Barbara Broccoli at Pinewood Studios.

The trajectory of his acting career traces back to the 2000s with his debut in “The Apocalypse,” where he starred alongside Richard Harris. Subsequently, he gained recognition for his roles in films like the 2008 teen flick “Angus, Thongs And Perfect Snogging,” and the 2022 action-packed thriller “Bullet Train,” alongside Brad Pitt.

Insiders revealed that Aaron’s portrayal of a psychopathic character in the 2016 thriller “Nocturnal Animals,” which earned him a Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actor, served as a catalyst for his consideration for the role of James Bond.
