The next James Bond movie will once again be a franchise reboot, with a new actor stepping into the role as 007.

Daniel Craig has officially retired from the franchise after the events of No Time to Die, in which his version of Bond actually died.

Even before Craig departed, there was speculation as to who would replace him as the most famous movie spy of all time. Names like Idris Elba, Tom Hardy, Henry Cavill and Aaron-Taylor Johnson were favourites at different points both before and after the production of No Time to Die.

At the moment, Kick-Ass star Taylor-Johnson is the favourite, overtaking Damson Idris who has dropped to fifth-favourite.

According to OddsChecker, he is the 3/1 favourite to be cast as Bond.

In second is Cavill at 4/1, while Rege-Jean Page and James Norton are both 5/1.

Earlier this year, it was reported that Taylor-Johnson was the favourite of Bond producers and that he had even donned the tuxedo to film his version of the iconic gun barrel sequence.

Producer Barbara Broccoli recently revealed that the casting of the next Bond was still some way off, however.
