During an interview with Balance, Avengers: Endgame star Chris Hemsworth expressed his interest in replacing Daniel Craig as James Bond.
Daniel Craig is set to make his final appearance as James Bond in the 25th entry of the 007 franchise and fans are already speculating on who could succeed him as the famed British Secret Service agent. While a successor has yet to be chosen, Avengers: Endgame star Chris Hemsworth noted he would love to play James Bond and joked about the 2013 film Rush being his audition tape:
“When we were shooting ‘Rush’ someone had (mentioned Bond) and I thought, ‘Cool, if this is my audition tape, then great.’ I don’t think you’ll ever meet anyone who doesn’t want to have a crack at James Bond. I’d love to do it.”
However, Chris Hemsworth acknowledged the final decision on who will play James Bond rests with franchise producer Barbara Broccoli and the fans:
“But that’s up to so many elements and is way beyond myself; it’s not one you can pitch yourself on to either. It’s something that the community of Bond fans, Barbara Broccoli and the whole crew there agree on, and it has to be a very organic decision from them. There have been a lot of names thrown out there and a lot of brilliant people can tackle that one.”
The 25th James Bond is scheduled to be released in theaters on April 8, 2020 while Chris Hemsworth will reprise his role as Thor when Endgame hits theaters this month.
The grave course of events set in motion by Thanos that wiped out half the universe and fractured the Avengers ranks compels the remaining Avengers to take one final stand in Marvel Studios’ grand conclusion to twenty-two films, “Avengers: Endgame.”
