So naturally, people are endlessly talking about who can suit best this iconic role after the legends who have carried it so far. From Regé-Jean Page, Lashana Lynch, to Henry Cavill, fans are putting their faith in the best candidates. Most recently, a lot of rumors were circulating about the incredible British actor Idris Elba taking the mantle of 007.
