Tom Hardy now rumoured as next James Bond
Rebelwithallthecause · 20/09/2020 08:13
I think he’d make an excellent bond with a new dynamic
It’s not officially confirmed but they are expecting it to be soon
Flaunch · 20/09/2020 08:17
Anyone would be an improvement on Daniel a Craig.
IDontMindMarmite · 20/09/2020 08:17
I heard this too and thought he would be a rubbish choice. So boring. I feel like we don't need another white bloke either. I'd have been happier with Idris Elba or a female Bond.

There's been rumours floating about for years (big Hardy fan here )
Personally I hope he isn't. I can't see him as Bond and I think it's a bit of a formulaic, sellout role. Although he went down that road already with Venom I suppose. I just wish he'd just kept doing interesting roles in smaller films.

No pool I like Tom hardy!
Bond should have died a death after Brosnan, is was antiquated and sexist then, but Brosnan at least made it vaguely palatable. Best thing about current bond is Judy Dench
LoeliaPonsonby · 20/09/2020 08:21
This has been floating around for years. He’d make a shit Bond.
Rebelwithallthecause · 20/09/2020 08:22
Just dench really is the best bit about bond
Daniel Craig is not a good bond
Not too sure I preferred Brosnan though
Idris Elba would be dreamy as bond.
Looking forward to seeing PWB’s direction on the next one
Rebelwithallthecause · 20/09/2020 08:23
Doesn’t seem to just be a floating rumour anymore
Balaur · 20/09/2020 08:24
Plus he's too old. He'd been late 40s by the time they started filming.
That's not me being ageist, that's how the producers would look at it
Rebelwithallthecause · 20/09/2020 08:24
Just dench = Judy obvs
Rebelwithallthecause · 20/09/2020 08:25
Daniel Craig was late 40’s when he started wasn’t he?
Balaur · 20/09/2020 08:26
No he was late 30s. 38?
Rebelwithallthecause · 20/09/2020 08:26
I think Henry cavill would bring a bit of ‘old bond’ style back
Bluntness100 · 20/09/2020 08:27
Ooh I thought brosnan was one of the worst bonds, and Daniel Craig was fantastic in the role.
I could see Tom hardy do it. But also some of the others rumoured.
Balaur · 20/09/2020 08:28
Yeah Cavill would be a good choice. Or even someone less well known. I also wish they'd shake up the whole Bond formula to be honest.
Rebelwithallthecause · 20/09/2020 08:29
I always thought Sachs Baren Cohen would make a good bond too
Rebelwithallthecause · 20/09/2020 08:30
Must be a hard thing to shake up as it’s almost institutional
Expecting there to be at least some surprises in the new PWB one though
Balaur · 20/09/2020 08:30
The thing i really can't see Tom Hardy doing is the schmoozy stuff with women that Bond requires. He rarely has any love scenes in any films (I don't count the one in Taboo!)
I don't think he "does" romance.
Rebelwithallthecause · 20/09/2020 08:32
Maybe there be less of the schmoozy.
That’s the part of bond that doesn’t translate as well to the modern day as they’d have to show him gaining some sort of consent which was never bonds style
wowfudge · 20/09/2020 08:32
I really don't get the hype around Tom Hardy full stop. My money's on James Norton.
Whatsnewpussyhat · 20/09/2020 08:33
I like a bit of Tom but Bond? Nope.
Bond villain? Possibly.
YouWereGr8InLittleMenstruators · 20/09/2020 08:34
Camp Idris here.
Balaur · 20/09/2020 08:35
Yeah people seem to get Tom Hardy or not. I always play bingo on those threads "what do you not get that other people love" because he always, always pops up
Yes James Norton is the one I liked! There were rumours about him a while back.
Rebelwithallthecause · 20/09/2020 08:35
Not seen James Norton act before.
Googling him my initial thought would be he has a good face for a villain
Balaur · 20/09/2020 08:36
A Bond villain!? Good call! Yes!
MJMG2015 · 20/09/2020 08:38
Sean Connery IS Bond
All others are poor imitations.
DC is particularly poor.
Can't see TH being very good, he lacks that charisma & sexiness bond needs.
Judi Dench is amazing.
