The words ‘man’ and ‘he’ is enough for the people to understand that the actor hopes that the James Bond franchise will continue to be driven by male agents and will not change the meta despite the current times trying to involve all the communities in their movies and series.

Despite Idris Elba being a top-favorite contender in the race for the next James Bond, the producers of the upcoming movie, Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson recently spoke about the contract’s condition that may be just enough to make Idris Elba think twice before signing.

“It’s going to be a couple of years off. And when we cast Bond, it’s a 10-, 12-year commitment. So he’s probably thinking, ‘Do I really want that thing?’ Not everybody wants to do that. It was hard enough getting Daniel Craig to do it.”

Since Idris Elba is 50 years old, the 10-year contract may be too much for the Hobbs & Shaw actor. As of now, fans are rooting for Henry Cavill to take the helm and be the next James Bond however, the decision rests entirely behind the closed walls of the Hollywood industry.
