Bookies Betting Whether Adele Will Join Daniel Craig In Bond 25?

With Daniel Craig confirmed as James Bond for at least one more outing, William Hill are predicting someone else could join him in returning to the franchise with Adele 7/4 to perform the theme song for “Bond 25”.


“Skyfall was well received by both critics and fans alike and it would appear that those in charge are determined to get the dream team back together,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.


The news that Daniel Craig has signed up for another Bond will have disappointed some of Hollywood’s leading men. Tom Hardy is the 3/1 favourite to take over when Craig does hand in his Licence To Kill. Aidan Turner, Idris Elba, Jack Huston and Tom Hiddleston are all 6/1 with James Norton 8/1.


Next James Bond after Daniel Craig: 3/1 Tom Hardy; 6/1 Aidan Turner; 6/1 Idris Elba; 6/1 Jack Huston; 6/1 Tom Hiddleston; 8/1 James Norton; 10/1 Michael Fassbender; 16/1 Ricky Whittle; 20/1 Henry Cavill; 25/1 BAR


Will Adele sing the theme for the next James Bond film: 7/4 yes; 2/5 no
