  • Idris Elba's James Bond Casting Once Again Confirmed As A Rumor

Elba's name has now been linked to the Bond franchise for nearly a decade, during which time Daniel Craig has starred in three films in the series.

There have been rumors for years that the actor will take on the iconic 007, but the only thing that's clear is that fans might not want to rely on Elba's social media posts for the answer.

Following the announcement that current Bond Daniel Craig would step aside, rumours have been rife that Elba would take over the role, but nothing was confirmed.

Trabuco and Holy Jim canyons were also under mandatory evacuation orders, as well as the Blue Jay and El Cariso campgrounds. The Holy Fire - named for Holy Jim Canyon where it began Monday - grew to almost 85 square kilometres by Saturday morning.

However, a spokesman for the alleged source of this quote, director Antoine Fuqua, told the Hollywood Reporter that he and Broccoli had never discussed Bond or casting.

Idris Elba has reignited rumours that he could be set to take over the role of James Bond from Daniel Craig with a cryptic tweet that has sent fans into a frenzy.

A few hours later, the actor tweeted again and this time he wrote, "Don't believe the HYPE".

The incident came after Szabo punched a resident who came outside amid the ruckus, according to The Post , which led Jones to act. Jones then slugged the 35-year-old Szabo in the head causing him to fall to the ground and hit his head on the pavement.

Elba most recently starred in Taika Waititi's Thor: Ragnorak, where he played Heimdall, the all-seeing and all-knowing Asgardian and former guard of the Bifrost Bridge.

Speaking in 2016, The Wire star Idris shrugged off being linked with playing Bond, saying: "I think I'm too old for that, running around in cars and ladies and martinis". You need a guy with a physically strong presence. According to the report, Fuqua said that Elba could fit the bill.
