Henry Cavill Believes Mission: Impossible Prepared Him To Play James Bond.


Daniel Craig's time as James Bond is coming to an end with only one more film in the cards. But, the legendary British spy hasn't completed his last mission just yet. Hollywood is currently searching for a new Bond and right now we can only speculate who it is.


When considering who could be the next Bond a lot of names came up but I actually never considered Henry Cavill. He was great in "The Man From U.N.C.L.E" and it looks as though he's going to have to stellar performance in Mission: Impossible (yet to be determined). But can he do justice to James Bond?

Henry Cavill stated in an interview with Yahoo Movies UK that he would love to play James Bond.

He said: "Ah, James Bond. I would love to do it of course. I think Bond would be a really fun role. It’s British, it’s cool. I think that now that I have my Mission: Impossible badge we can do real stunts and really amp it up as well. Not to say they weren’t doing real stunts I’m just saying it would be fun for me to actually take what I’ve learnt on this and carry it through to a movie like Bond. I’d love to play a Brit. I don’t get to play a Brit very often. So yes, I would love the opportunity and if they were to ask I would say 'yes'"

Cavill also spoke about Tom Cruise saying that through Tom Cruise he was able to see that physicality isn’t enough with stunts.


"I don’t know if it’s about doing more stunts, I want to do them anyway, but it’s made me realise that physicality isn’t enough. You have to have all these skill sets, it goes way beyond just being tough or wanting to get stuck in. If you can’t fly a helicopter, you can’t fly a helicopter so I’ve left that movie with a list of licences I need to get. Helicopter licence, I’ve got the motorcycle licence, now I just need to learn how to stunt ride it. I need to learn how to drift cars, I need to learn how to do a whole bunch of stuff."

I think Henry Cavill would be a great Bond but it definitely removes the possibility of seeing a black Bond, which was definitely discussed. But let's just wait and see what happens.

Production on the next James Bond film is slated to get underway at Pinewood Studios this December. MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE - FALLOUT will hit theaters on July 27th.
