In a recent interview, James Bond actor Daniel Craig admitted that he dreamed of playing a DC Comics character growing up.

James Bond is one of the most iconic roles an actor could get due to its storied history. However, there are now superhero roles out there that have become just as iconic such as Batman, Spider-Man, Superman, and Joker.

Daniel Craig is about to play James Bond for the last time in No Time to Die, which will now arrive in theaters this fall. In an interview with Saga Magazine, Daniel Craig confessed that he actually grew up wanting to play DC Comics’ Superman and Marvel’s Spider-Man, not James Bond:

 “People are always saying to me, ‘You must have dreamed of playing James Bond when you were a kid.’ The answer is no. I never did. I dreamed of being all sorts of other things – Superman, Spider-Man, the Invisible Man, even a good old-fashioned cowboy.”

Instead of playing another hero, I think Daniel Craig would be a great Lex Luthor, Doctor Doom, or Hugo Strange. Which DC Comics or Marvel character would you like to see Daniel Craig play? Sound-off in the comments section below!

Here is the official synopsis for James Bond’s next adventure No Time to Die:

Bond has left active service and is enjoying a tranquil life in Jamaica. His peace is short-lived when his old friend Felix Leiter from the CIA turns up asking for help. The mission to rescue a kidnapped scientist turns out to be far more treacherous than expected, leading Bond onto the trail of a mysterious villain armed with dangerous new technology.

Directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga from a script co-written by Neal Purvis & Robert Wade and Phoebe Waller-Bridge, No Time to Die stars Daniel Craig, Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris, Ben Whishaw, Lea Seydoux, Rory Kinnear, Jeffrey Wright, Rami Malek, Ana de Armas, Lashana Lynch, Billy Magnussen, David Dencik and Dali Benssalah.

No Time To Die will be released in theaters on November 25, 2020.
