Henry Cavill Sparks Up James Bond Rumors

Henry Cavill broke millions nay billions of hearts when he announced his retirement from The Witcher franchise. After portraying Geralt of Rivia for 4 years, the actor finally decided to call it quits. Henry Cavill opened up a conversation about again potentially playing the role of James Bond.

Henry Cavill To Play James Bond Despite Busy Schedule?

The Man of Steel actor’s reason to leave The Witcher franchise is thought to be a busy schedule after his return as Superman. Following much support from the public and Dwayne Johnson’s fighting power, Henry Cavill appeared as Superman in Black Adam (2022).

The actor has also recently starred as the pipe-smoking detective Sherlock Holmes in Millie Bobby Brown’s Enola Holmes (2022). Taking to the HappySad Podcast, Henry Cavill stated that it would be very much in his interest if he could take on the role of James Bond. The Mission Impossible actor has been a popular choice to play the next Bond but no official statements from the producers have been released yet.

“I’m quite busy now. I love those guys, Barbara [Broccoli] and Mike [G. Wilson]… Whether I’m considered for the role or not, I don’t know. But it’d be fun to have the conversation, for sure. And if I’m not, then I just want to see what they do with it next, because I think they’re amazing.”

For the unversed, Barbara Broccoli and Mike G. Wilson are the producers behind many successful Bond films. They essentially control the Bond franchise now and have been confused for quite some time regarding the main actor. However, with the interest of the Justice League actor in the franchise, things can seem brighter in the future.

It was recently announced that the contract to portray the role of James Bond is a 10-year contract. Henry Cavill had been rejected before from playing Bond in Casino Royale since they wanted an elder actor to portray the role. The Man of Steel actor, now in his late 30s, is the perfect age to take on the role of the 007 agent. The contract was also one of the factors for Idris Elba to get out of the James Bond race since he was also considered heavily for the role.

Although Cavill has admitted interest in the franchise, there has been no official statement from Barbara Brocolli or Mike G. Wilson regarding their consideration for Henry Cavill. The actor has most recently starred as Superman in Black Adam (2022) and as Sherlock Holmes in Enola Homes 2 (2022).

Black Adam is currently running in theaters worldwide while Enola Holmes 2 is available to stream on Netflix.
