Superman actor Henry Cavill is now among the frontrunners to replace Daniel Craig as the next James Bond.
The 35-year-old is now just 8/1, from 14/1, to play Ian Fleming’s famous sleuth.
It wouldn’t be the first time Cavill has pitched up as a spy either. He performed a notable turn in the 2015 reboot of The Man from U.N.C.L.E.
Regardless, he remains behind a number of the big hitters from the industry, with Tom Hardy still leading the way at 2/1.
Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “Reports suggesting Cavill will leave Warner Bros have left us with no choice but to slash odds on him playing another of Hollywood’s biggest names.”
