    Cillian Murphy rules himself out of playing James Bond as he thinks next 007 'should be a woman'

    Cillian Murphy has shut down claims that he could be the next James Bond because he thinks the iconic role should go to a woman.The Peaky Binders star, who plays Tommy Shelby in the BBC show, was hotly tipped to take over Daniel Craig’s spot as the new 007, joining a list of rumoured contenders which also includes James Norton and Richard Madden.But, speaking to The Guardian, the 43-year-old admitted he has other ideas. He said: “The thing about it is, if you say anything about Bond it becomes the headline, right?“There’s two things I’ll say about that. Firstly, there’s a whole other industry which is completely separate from the film side of things, and that’s the bookies. He added: “The second thing I’d say is that I think it should be a woman, which rules me out.”The English actress Lashana Lynch has reportedly been cast as a new 007, but her character will appear alongside Craig’s Bond, having taken over his code name, rather than replace him.[[gallery-0]] ​Previous contenders rumoured to be in the running to play the iconic super-spy include Idris Elba and Tom Hiddleston.Filming for the 25th Bond film, which is using the working title Shatterhand, has so far taken place on location in Jamaica, Norway and Italy, and at Pinewood Studios in the UK.Earlier this year, Craig was forced to spend two weeks recovering from an ankle injury sustained while filming. Despite this, the film is still slated for release in April 2020.The 25th Bond film will be directed by Cary Fukunaga and will be Craig's fifth and final outing as the super spy.Ralph Fiennes, Ben Whishaw, Naomie Harris, Jeffrey Wright and Rory Kinnear will all return to the series, while Rami Malek will make his Bond debut as a villain.

    James Bond: Avengers star Chris Hemsworth reveals who he'd cast as 007

    Chris Hemsworth has revealed which actor he’d pick to succeed Daniel Craig as James Bond.The Australian actor, who plays Thor in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, has thrown his support behind one of the most heavily rumoured names on the list of contenders – and a former Avengers co-stars.He told Variety: “My vote would be Idris [Elba]. I think he’d give it a different sort of swagger, too, and each time someone new comes into the role, I think you’ve got to offer up something different.”During the interview, Hemsworth revealed it was his idea to inject Thor with a comedic streak first seen in Taika Waititi’s Thor: Ragnarok following fears he had been typecast in the first two Avengers films and Thor: The Dark World.“After I’d done Avengers and Thor 2, I did feel a bit trapped,” he said. “I felt like I was typecast by whoever was writing those scripts. I feel like the creators were stuck on where they could take the character, and was this all he had to offer? I felt there was so much more we could do."He added that the character’s sillier side was inspired by a comedic turn in Paul Feig’s all-female Ghostbusters reboot.Speaking about the film’s backlash from male fans of the 1984 original, Hemsworth said: “That whole period I was like, ‘What ownership do you guys have over those characters? Oh, you watched the film, therefore you should have a say over where it goes?’ I thought it was very unfortunate and kind of disappointing.”The actor will next be seen in Men In Black International, which he stars in alongside his Avengers co-star Tessa Thompson. it’ll be released in cinemas on 14 June.
