James Bond Poster Edit Imagines Henry Cavill As 007

1 year ago

A James Bond poster edit imagines Superman actor Henry Cavill as 007. The Bond franchise is gearing up for Daniel Craig's last turn in the title role. He'll lead the 25th movie in the series, No Time to Die, later this year. The film was one of the first affected by the coronavirus but is set for a November 20 release as of now. MGM has recently restarted its marketing campaign for No Time to Die, releasing a new trailer earlier this month. However, much of the movie's story remains a mystery. This makes sense, considering it's Craig's final time playing the character.

There's already been a lot of speculation about who might take over as 007 in the next Bond movie. Idris Elba has long been a fan favorite, though he claimed in 2018 he wouldn't be playing the part. Cavill is another actor gaining traction, with a rumor from a couple years ago saying he was being eyed for the role. Recently, AI software even chose Cavill as Bond after considering several actors. While this won't have an impact on the actual casting decision, the talk surrounding Cavill has inspired some impressive fan art over the years.

The latest is a poster edit by spdrmnkyxxiii. The artist based the image on a new poster for Cavill's movie Enola Holmes, which stars Millie Bobby Brown in the title role. In the edit, Cavill makes a great James Bond, completely embodying the iconic character. Check out the image, as well as the original Enola Holmes poster, below.

While there's no way to know who will end up playing Bond after Craig, this poster edit certainly makes a solid argument for Cavill. He's proven he has the chops for the role thanks to his impressively varied acting career. His time as Superman prepared him for both the action sequences of a Bond movie and leading a massive franchise. Cavill has also done a great job on Netflix's The Witcher, another project with high fan expectations. Of course, having already taken on quite a few high-profile roles, there's a chance Cavill isn't interested in playing Bond at this time.

It's also important to note Cavill's casting would mean yet another white man nabbed the role. Many are hoping for a more inclusive choice, such as a person of color or a woman. While Cavill would be a good James Bond, it would be far more exiting to see Elba or even Lashana Lynch, who's already in No Time to Die, as the new 007. Hopefully, Craig's successor is named soon.
