Hardy is one of a number of actors who have previously been rumoured to play the next Bond, with others including Tom Hiddleston, Idris Elba and Richard Madden.
Daniel Craig has been an incredible Bond. He’s very physical, he looks lethal. You genuinely believe this is someone who could kill a man,” he said.
“He’s complained about doing the part because he’s put himself through a lot physically, but he will do the next movie, and then I think Tom Hardy could be a good Bond.
“I’d be happy to see him do it. You need an actor who can put a bit of wiggle into it, that’s what makes Bond.”
The next Bond will step in after No Time To Die, which finds 007 after he has left active service and is enjoying a tranquil life in Jamaica.
However, his peace is short-lived when his old friend Felix Leiter (Jeffrey Wright) from the CIA turns up asking for help.
The film is due to be released in UK cinemas on November 12, after it was pushed from its original release date in April because of the global pandemic.
United Artists Releasing has revealed 12 new character posters for the No Time to Die movie, opening in North American theaters on November 20 and in the UK on November 12. You can view the posters below and you’ll also find the recently-released one-sheet underneath.
No Time to Die has been rated PG-13 for sequences of violence and action, some disturbing images, brief strong language and some suggestive material. Earlier this year, the film’s runtime was reported by several theater chains to be 2 hours and 43 minutes (or 163 minutes), making it the longest James Bond movie ever.
No Time To Die, the latest James Bond, movie is all set to release in November.
