So Daniel Craig will not continue to be James Bond; MR. BOND or 007 (as many of us like to say), but who will succeed him? Will it really be the cute face Aiden Turner?

Flicker Myth says: With Daniel Craig now seemingly all but confirmed as exiting the James Bond franchise, speculation is running wild as to his successor in the role of 007.
It’s recently been reported that Tom Hiddleston is in “advanced talks” with Eon Productions about portraying the super spy in Bond 25 (which could potentially reunite him with The Night Managerdirector Susanne Bier), while there’s also been word that Fantastic Four star Jamie Bell has had discussions with producer Barbara Broccoli.
