With the release of No Time To Die, well over a month ago, Daniel Craig’s 15-year reign as James Bond has come to an end. The closure of his 007 tenure only heightens the already rife speculation over just who will be the seventh actor to officially play Ian Fleming’ spy. Current odds have Venom star Tom Hardy neck and neck with Game of Thrones’ Tom Hopper and Richard Madden at around 4-1.

But that doesn’t stop other stars who want their shot at the Licence to Kill from throwing their hat in the ring.

He may only be 25-years-old, but Spider-Man star Tom Holland sounds pretty desperate to be the next 007.

The news comes from Marvel actor Jacob Batalon, who plays sidekick Ned in the MCU Spider-Man movies.

Speaking with GQ, the co-star said: “He talks about being James Bond a lot. A lot a lot.”

The new trailer for Holland’s Spider-Man: No Way Home, the end of his MCU trilogy next month, hit the internet yesterday.

Speaking with the same outlet, the Peter Parker star said: “Maybe it is time for me to move on. Maybe what’s best for Spider-Man is that they do a Miles Morales film.

“I have to take Peter Parker into account as well, because he is an important part of my life.

“If I’m playing Spider-Man after I’m 30, I’ve done something wrong.”

Could this be Holland’s way of saying he’d like to move on and play a role as idolised as Bond?

Certainly, the outlet’s interviewer believes this to be one of his “other ambitions”.

Spider-Man producer Amy Pascal wants him to stick around playing Parker as long as possible.

She said: “I’ve talked to him about doing, like, 100 more. I’m never going to make Spider-Man movies without him. Are you kidding me?”

Whatever the case, Holland hasn’t closed the door, saying: “Or I might do Spider-Man 4, 5, and 6, finish when I’m 32, and never make another. I’m not sure what I want to do.”

Well being in his early-to-mid thirties would be the perfect age to start playing Bond, with Craig being cast at 37.

Right now, the 25-year-old’s best odds of being the next Bond are 66-1, so maybe he’d have a better chance after whoever replaces Craig.

Although, already being an established A-lister best known for playing an iconic role could make it harder for him to be cast. After all, the outgoing Bond wasn’t exactly a household name in 2005.
