Henry Cavill Would "Absolutely Jump" At Playing James Bond

Henry Cavill once auditioned for the part when he was 22.

Henry Cavill would "love" to become the next James Bond.

The 37-year-old actor who is best known for playing Superman and is reportedly contracted to play him in three more projects  has revealed he would jump at the chance to replace Daniel Craig as the iconic character, admitting it would be a "very, very exciting" opportunity.

Henry told GQ magazine: "At this stage, it's all up in the air. We'll see what happens. But yes, I would love to play Bond, it would be very, very exciting.

"If Barbara [Broccoli] and [producer Michael G. Wilson] were interested in that, I would absolutely jump at the opportunity."

It won't be the first time Henry is linked to the superspy: He auditioned for the coveted role 15 years ago after Pierce Brosnan turned in his licence to kill. Henry was in the running to play Bond but was told by Casino Royale director Martin Campbell that he was "a little chubby" for the part. 

Meanwhile, Henry recently revealed he won't be doing any "additional filming" for Justice League.

Henry portrayed Superman in the 2017 movie and though original director Zack Snyder who departed the film to attend to a family matter and was replaced by Joss Whedon is currently working on his own four-episode limited series based on his vision for the project, the Enola Holmes star has confirmed he isn't needed for reshoots.

He said: "Not shooting anything additional. No. It's all stuff that has been already done."

Henry is also curious to see what the new version of the tale will look like.

He added: "Obviously I don't know how things are going to evolve and change and adapt depending on now a different length of movie and whatever may happen in post-production.

"Whatever lessons may be learned from, what is it, four years since Justice League came out? Four years' worth of fan reaction. For me ... I'm now just watching the party."— BANG
