Next James Bond odds – Henry Cavill overtaken by new 007 frontrunner

It’s been a year and a half since it turned out that James Bond did have time to die after all. Daniel Craig has bowed out as 007, but just who will replace him in the reboot? The latest bookies’ odds are in and his Casino Royale runner-up Henry Cavill has been pushed into second place.

According to BoyleSports’ Lawrence Lyons: “Aaron Taylor-Johnson has shaken and stirred the Bond market this year – whispers of auditions can’t be ignored and now we’ve had little choice but to put him right at the top of the list of likely contenders.” Take it all with a pinch of salt, but the 32-year-old is now the bookies’ favourite on 15-8.

Just behind him on 5-2 is Cavill, followed by James Norton, whose odds have been slashed in half from 11-2 to 11-4. This comes after he starred in the thrilling finale to ITV’s Happy Valley last month.

Next up is Regé-Jean Page on 7-1, although with his new movie Dungeons and Dragons: Honour Among Thieves out this weekend, we’d expect his odds to slice in the coming days. Other contenders in the mix are Tom Hardy on 8-1, Callum Turner on 10-1 and Jack Lowden, Aidan Turner and Idris Elba all on 12-1.

Further back are Michael Fassbender on 14-1, Luke Evans and Richard Madden on 16-1 and Cillian Murphy on 20-1. Others include Jamie Dornan and Colin Farrell on 33-1 and Paul Mescal on 40-1.
