After Daniel Craig stepped down from the role of James Bond last year, franchise bosses Barbara Broccoli and Michael G Wilson have been searching for his replacement. Marvel fans have been theorizing that a superhero actor might be the best bet, but Charlie Cox has stepped up to announce that he’s hopeless about his chances for the role.
Cox is best known for playing Daredevil on the Netflix series of the same name. After three exceptional seasons on the streaming service, the TV show was cancelled. Last year, he returned to the character of Matt Murdock in Spider-Man: No Way Home. And earlier this year, he reprized this role once more when he appeared in She-Hulk: Attorney At Law.
Since then, a series titled Daredevil: Born Again has been announced coming to Disney Plus in 2024.
In a recent interview with radio schedulesCox opened up about his new TV show, Betrayal, while also opening up the possibility of taking over another legendary hero: 007.
However, he noted, “My role in the Marvel Universe has taken the itch away.”
On paper, Cox would be a fantastic candidate for the next Bond, James Bond.
While the 40-year-old British star is certainly a famous face, he’s still not a household name and could certainly make an even bigger impact in Hollywood by becoming 007. However, he feels he wouldn’t be the best fit for the role. . .
Cox said: “And if I’ve learned anything from making this show, and I’ve done a couple of spy movies and TV shows in my career, I did a BBC Two movie called Legacy about ten years ago, one of the things I learned in my preparation for both that and Treason that he would actually make a terrible spy.”
He went on to add: “I’m a very bad liar and I need a lot of basic things in the world of espionage explained to me multiple times before I can really understand it, so I think that probably rules me out.” “
Daredevil has always been a big part of Marvel comics, so Cox will likely be in the Marvel Cinematic Universe for some time. And after teaming up with Spider-Man, he’s sure to have a bright future, even if he’s not like James Bond.
Meanwhile, another Marvel star is currently at the top of the Bond odds.
The ever-changing odds have been deadlocked in recent weeks, with one newcomer claiming the top spot: Aaron Taylor-Johnson.
The actor previously played Pietro Maximoff in Avengers: Age of Ultron. Since then, he’s starred in Bullet Train, The King’s Man, and Tenet.
Although Taylor-Johnson is currently filming his next Marvel movie, Sony’s Kraven the Hunter, that doesn’t rule out him playing James Bond in the near future.
Ladbrokes recently gave the actor a 2/1 blind chance of becoming Bond.
Alex Apati of the bookies said: “Our traders have been scratching their heads a bit after seeing Aaron Taylor-Johnson jump to the top of the betting, but he continues to hold the top spot in the race to replace Daniel Craig, with Henry Cavill now being his closest rival for the 007 concert.”
