Luke Cage creator reveals considering Ram Charan for James Bond role after Daniel Craig exit

Marvel’s Luke Cage creator Cheo Hodari Coker recently took to his official Twitter handle and shared a note revealing the names of the actors whom he would consider watching as James Bond in the iconic movie series after Daniel Craig’s exit. In the tweet, he mentioned Idris Elba, Sope Dirisu, Matthew Goode, Damson Idris, and Ram Charan in the list and further reacted to how his tweet took the internet by storm. While reflecting on his choices, he wrote, “Damn! That escalated quickly. Everyone knows Idris from, well, everything, but to get inside my thinking, watch Sope in "Gangs Of London,"  Matthew G in "The Offer", Damson in "Snowfall" and Ram in "RRR". They all deserve a shot at a Savile Row suit and a Walther PPK.” (sic)

While rumours mills are rife with names of actors like Tom Hardy, Henry Cavill, Idris Elba as well as Euphoria star Jacob Elordi, producer Barbara Broccoli has stated 'it'll take time' to find Craig's replacement. In a conversation with Variety, she mentioned that it's a 'big decision' to bring in a new face, as it's not just about 'casting a role' but "a whole rethink about where we’re going." Meanwhile, Craig's No Time To Die came out in 2021 and went on to become the fourth-highest-grossing film of the year.
