Idris Elba has always denied rumors that he is in line to be the next James Bond when Daniel Craig calls it quits.

The Luther actor’s name has been involved in James Bond rumors for several years now – so much so that we bet he is getting bored of answering the same questions about it.

The topic of Bond was once again brought up, this time during an interview at the Sundance Film Festival, and Idris Elba certainly made things interesting when he shared his views on who else could play the famous spy…

“Are we interested in having a character, a Bond character that is anything other than being a male?” he asked during an interview with Variety.

“It could be a woman, it could be a black woman, it could be a white woman.

“But I think that character, everybody would like to see something different with it. Why not?”

Why not indeed!

We have a female Dr. Who, so there’s no reason we can‘t have a black, female 007.

Who’s with us?
