When news broke of Daniel Craig was done with 007, James Bond fans are in heated argument over who will replace him. What is interesting, and heartening, to see, is that this time around there are some non-stereotypical names doing the rounds, and Twitter is all over the gossip with the hashtag #NextBond.

One of the names that has many votes is that of Idris Alba, whose name has actually been one of the top choices for a couple of years now.


Other names include Loki, aka, Tom Hiddleston, and even Tom Hardy.

They even have the car ready for him.



But Twitter’s favourite seems to be no other than Gillian ‘Scully’ Anderson. And we have a series of posters to show how cool The X-Files actress would look in the role.


Closer home, Priyanka Chopra has said she’d love to play Bond, and not a Bond girl. Well, we’d definitely root for her!
