It’s well-known that Henry Cavill was once Hollywood’s unluckist actor. He was very nearly Superman in Superman returns, he was very nearly Batman in Batman begins. He was also very nearly James Bond in Casino Royale.
The actor is clearly having success playing Superman, so that rules out Batman. But he still has a keen eye on the role of Bond. Whilst promoting Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice on The Graham Norton Show, the actor was asked if he would consider taking over the role. Here’s what he had to say:
“I’m very busy with the Superman stuff, but if there were any windows and they wanted me to do that kind of role, it would be great. I would love to do it.”
Of course, despite speculation, the role is still Daniel Craig’s until he confirms his departure.
