Reports coming to light have revealed that Aaron Taylor-Johnson is a frontline candidate to replace Daniel Craig in the role of MI6 agent, James Bond.
In 2021, Daniel Craig stepped down from playing the master spy after starring in five films over 15 years. Soon after, several discussions arose as to who would replace Craig in the highly coveted role with actors Henry Cavill, and Aaron Taylor-Johnson rumored to be prime candidates.
Puck News has now confirmed the rumors surrounding the Kick Ass actor as he has been reported to have met one half of the Bond movies’ producers Barbara Broccoli to discuss the role and according to their sources, the meeting went well.
Although Johnson does seem like a perfect fit for Bond, having demonstrated his acting prowess on many occasions, not to talk of how dapper he looks in a suit, this information should be taken with a grain of salt as no official announcement has been made and no new Bond movie anywhere in sight.
Taylor-Johnson, 32, is famous for starring in roles like Dave Lizewski in the Kick Ass movies, Pietro Maximoff/Quick Silver in Avengers: Age of Ultron, Ray Marcus in Nocturnal Animals, Ives in Tenet, and most recently as Tangerine Bullet Train.
