Daniel Craig was the sixth actor to portray the iconic James Bond character. Since his departure from the British espionage thriller franchise, the studio has been searching for an actor who is an ideal fit for the films and the 007 brand. Fans believe they know who will portray the next James Bond.
Fans have speculated and suggested a number of actors for the iconic role. Many have suggested that Henry Cavill, Idris Elba, Tom Hardy, and Tom Hiddleston could assume the role.
Friday’s Instagram collaboration between Stanley Tucci and Richard Madden appears to have provided moviegoers with a clue. It was a promotional video for the new espionage series on Amazon, Citadel.
Citadel star Richard Madden hints in a promotional video that he has won the James Bond job.
In the video, the Game of Thrones star and Stanley could barely contain their laughter as they sipped a martini, which is the super spy’s preferred beverage. Stanley inquired to his co-star in Citadel, “How’s yours?” Richard then responded, “Delicious,” leading fans to believe that the Game of Thrones actor was indicating he had secured the coveted role.
As soon as Stanley Tucci shared the video, a user commented, “I don’t know what drinks look like, but if that’s Richard Madden consuming a Martini that’s been shaken, not stirred……One user commented, “There you go, here’s the new James Bond,” while another inquired, “Is that the new James Bond?”
A third user remarked, “To the gods of 007, this is a no-brainer.”
Mason Kane, an amnesic spy for the mysterious global Citadel intelligence network, is portrayed in the new espionage thriller by Bodyguard and Marvel actor Richard Madden.
He stars alongside the American actor Stanley Tucci, who portrays their supervisor Bernard Orlick, and the Indian actress Priyanka Chopra Jonas, who portrays fellow spy Nadia Sinh.
