James Bond fans are patiently awaiting new information about the future of the franchise. After No Time To Die, Daniel Craig stepped down from the legendary role of 007, and all eyes have been on Bond bosses ever since. In recent months, a Bridgerton heartthrob has been at the top of the stakes, but things have just changed.
Regé-Jean Page exploded in popularity after the first season of Bridgerton hit Netflix in 2020. Since then, he’s been all but a sure bet on becoming the new 007.
However, the British-Zimbabwean actor has confessed that he doesn’t have much faith in the odds. He previously said that, as “flattered” as he is to be in the conversation, he’s nothing more than a badge of merit.
Well, it looks like it might be true after all. As Ladbrokes have just put their Bond odds at 4/1 to become the new and improved 007.
Surprisingly, he has now been surpassed by a huge superhero star, who has now become the new favorite: Henry Cavill.
Cavill is of course best known for playing Superman in the DC Comics series. He is also Geralt of Rivia on Netflix’s The Witcher and has also worked alongside Tom Cruise on the Mission: Impossible franchise.
As a result, it is extremely popular. And now, he’s at the top of the Bond odds leaderboard for the first time in months. At the time of writing, Cavill has been given a mighty 7/2 to become Bond, James Bond.
This will undoubtedly be welcome news for the action hero, who previously auditioned to become the super spy in 2005. He confronted Craig while Casino Royale director Martin Campbell was auditioning new actors. Unfortunately, disaster struck as soon as Cavill entered the room.

Cavill was told he looked “a little chubby.” He later admitted that he didn’t really know how to “diet or train” to stay in shape. Before long, it was confirmed that he did not get the role of Bond.
Craig then played Bond for 15 years in five films.
Ladbrokes’ Alex Apati said of this change in odds: “Henry Cavill overtook Regé-Jean Page over the weekend and now finds himself at the top of the Bond betting following a flurry of interest from Bond punters. 007”.
However, Cavill is not a sure thing for the next Bond. He still has powerful competition.
Elsewhere in the betting is Tom Hardy, who has become a fan favorite in the 007 betting in recent months.
The Venom star previously said that he would not speak publicly about his desire to become Bond, as he did not want to lose his opportunity in any way.
As a result, he has maintained a mighty 6/1 to become the next tuxedo star. And, with no actual big movie projects coming up, she certainly has the time and wherewithal to play the character.
James Bond No Time To Die is available to watch on Amazon Prime Video now.
