Aaron Taylor-Johnson, who first gained popularity with the rom-com “Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging.” Followed by action roles in the bloody comic book movie “Kick Ass,” and later played Quicksilver in the Marvel movie “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” is a hot favourite to play MI6 spy James Bond. It has already been more than two years since the last “James Bond” movie was released.
This year, he was supposed to play adventurer Sergei Kravinoff in Marvel’s ‘Kraven the Hunter.’ However, the film’s release date has been pushed back to August 2024.

Aaron Taylor-Johnson as the Frontrunner for the Next James Bond with Christopher Nolan at the Helm?
“Aaron Taylor-Johnson is currently the hot favourite to step into the iconic role,” a source told the MailOnline. He’s (Bond head producer) Barbara Broccoli’s top pick – he’s the one to beat.”
In response to the potential of Christopher being the director, a source told Mirror.co.uk. “He is extremely interested in doing something very different with the franchise.” If he can get his way with the producers, he’s all for it.”
However, the insider also suggested that Christopher’s presence as director could have an impact on Aaron’s prospects of landing the part. “Whether Nolan coming on board will affect the casting of Aaron Taylor-Johnson is currently a grey area,” a movie source told the publication. Because he is picky about who he works with.”
Aaron, on the other hand, has stated a strong desire to be directed by Christopher. So the coupling could be a match made in heaven.
