Rumors ran wild. Would Indris Elba be the first black 007? Would Gillian Anderson turn him into, erm…Jane Bond?
None of the above, apparently. Inside sources have just revealed to the New York Times that Daniel Craig will, in fact, be behind the wheel of the (Aston Martin) Bondmobile at least one more time. Indeed, the as yet untitled 27th film in the biggest movie franchise in history will not hit the big screen until late in 2019 – but it will definitely not feature an XX chromosome 007.
If we’re being honest, we actually weren’t really ready to see him go.
