Next James Bond Odds: Aaron Taylor-Johnson into 2/1 to replace Daniel Craig as 007

Aaron Taylor-Johnson is a big mover in the next James Bond odds market, having been cut from 80/1 to as short as 2/1 with one bookmaker.

Since Daniel Craig stepped away from playing James Bond, there has been so much speculation as to who will replace him in the iconic role of MI6 spy.

Following a supposed “secret” audition, Aaron Taylor Johnson has been slashed in the Next James Bond odds market to as short as 2/1 (best price 7/1). 

One insider said: “Aaron went for a screen test to be the next Bond in September and producers and (Barbara Broccoli – head of the James Bond franchise) loved him. He is now one of the front-runners.”

At the start of the month, Taylor-Johnson was a best price 80/1. Despite his big market move, he is remains only the third favourite to land one of film’s biggest roles.  

The 32-year-old actor, who featured in Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron, Godzilla, The King’s Man and more recently Bullet Train, is rumoured to be among the “top choices” for the next 007.

Cavill remains the market favourite

Star of The Witcher and Man of Steel, Henry Cavill is the current favourite at EVS (7/2 available) and has been battling for favouritism with Bridgerton star Rege-Jean Page over the last few months. 

Page, currently at best odds of 9/2, received backing from the Russo brothers in July to be successful if he were to take the role.  

An ever-present in the market, Idris Elba has drifted to 14/1 having reportedly walked away from talks to become the new James Bond.
