And so the search for the next James Bond continues, this time with betting company William Hill providing favorable odds for actors Henry Cavill and Aaron Taylor-Johnson who find themselves their odds of landing the role tied at 2-1 each. The act of finding a new James Bond has become like a sport itself as many try to figure out who will take on the iconic role next.
Cavill’s odds rose after it was announced last week that the actor will no longer be returning to his role as Superman, despite having only just confirmed he was back. This actually ended up increasing his odds of playing the iconic British spy. Cavill isn’t the only superhero actor in contention for the role, with Taylor-Johnson also in the running. He appeared as Quicksilver in Avengers: Age of Ultron, not to mention the role that brought him recognition from the general public, Kick-Ass.
