Superman star Henry Cavill transforms into James Bond in a new fan edit that sees the British actor replacing Daniel Craig as 007.
While most fans are looking forward to Cary Joji Fukunaga’s No Time To Die, many are wondering who will pick up the James Bond mantle after the film’s release, since this will be Daniel Craig’s final outing as the fan-favorite superspy. One name that occasionally crops up for the role is Superman star Henry Cavill. The idea started around the time Cavill appeared in The Man from U.N.C.L.E. as CIA agent Napoleon Solo, and then again following his role in the wildly successful Mission: Impossible – Fallout as the reacherous August Walker.
Henry Cavill will next be seen in the Netflix movie Enola Holmes opposite Millie Bobby Brown and Sam Claflin as the world-famous detective Sherlock Holmes. And with the release of a new poster for the Netflix flick, digital artist ‘spdrmnkyxxiii’ saw the opportunity to imagine Cavill as the next James Bond following Daniel Craig. It’s hard to deny that the Superman star looks the part, especially wielding 007’s iconic pistol, the Walther PPK. The artist even gave Daniel Craig’s replacement a perfect title for a future James Bond film. You can see Henry Cavill as James Bond below.
