Idris Elba as James Bond? Fans are shaken and stirred at the possibility

once again another speculation about Idris Elba being cast as James Bond.For years, this has been a request ,and by “request,” i mean “demand” of many who have always seen the “Luther” star slipping into a tuxedo to play everyone’s favorite spy.

This time, a report from UK publication The Daily Star has stirred excitement. In it, director Antoine Fuqua says that Bond producer Barbara Broccoli believes it’s time to bring some diversity to the role and has left the door open for idris Elba to potentially succeed the current 007, Daniel Craig.

Mind you, no one has confirmed this publicly as of yet and CNN has reached out to reps for idris Elba, Broccoli and Fuqua.
But already Twitter is excited about the possibility, naturally.

The 45-year-old Elba has also been endorsed by a former 007.
Actor Pierce Brosnan told the Radio Times back in 2015 he thought Elba would make a good Bond (though in June 2018, he threw his support behind Tom Hardy as the next spy who loves us.)
