Next Bond – 100/1 Queen To Appear – Will This Be Craig’s Last?

The producers of James Bond are set to unveil the new film’s title on Thursday and William Hill are offering 100/1 that the Queen is announced as a cast member. It is 25/1 that the new film goes on to win a Best Picture Oscar and 33/1 that Daniel Craig wins a Best Actor Oscar for his role in the movie.

Despite signing up for a further film it is 6/1 that Daniel decides that this will be his last Bond film. Tom Hardy is the current 3/1 favourite to replace him, whilst others in the early mix are Idris Elba at 4/1 and Michael Fassbender at 11/2. Back in September there was a short, sharp gamble on Orlando Bloom to be the next Bond and he is 10/1 from 40/1.

“The latest film in the franchise has been a long time in coming and we cannot help but speculate that Daniel Craig may decide that with his years advancing it may be time to hand in his Licence to Kill,” said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams.
