Craig And Adele To Team Up Again On Bond 25? Gamble On Jack O’Connell To Take Over?

With Daniel Craig confirming that he is dusting off his tuxedo and Licence to Kill, William Hill are offering 11/4 that Adele returns to sing the theme, although her odds have lengthened from 7/4 in recent days.

“In Skyfall, you perhaps saw Craig’s best performance accompanied by arguably the best Bond theme and Adele could well be brought on board again,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.

Since the confirmation, William Hill have seen a significant gamble on Jack O’Connell bagging the role after Craig steps down.

“Jack O’Connell has roared into contention given that if Craig steps down in the next five or six years, the former Skins man will be the perfect age to take over the mantle,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.

Will Adele sing the theme tune for Bond 25: 11/4 yes; 1/4 no
