Idris Elba offers cheeky tweets amid latest James Bond rumors

Idris Elba's James Bond Casting Once Again Confirmed As A Rumor

Just days after famed James Bond producer Barbara Broccoli suggested it was time to bring more diversity to the iconic spy's lineage, actor Idris Elba is teasing fans with a playful tweet that has many wishing it were true.

"Idris could do it if he was in shape", he told the UK's The Daily Star.

The latest slew of Elba-Bond rumors comes after a report in the United Kingdom tabloid The Daily Star, which quoted director Antoine Fuqua as saying that Elba was, yet again, in the running for the role.

There will also be retro love as well for members, including the original NES version of The Legend of Zelda , Super Mario Bros . One such detail is Switch Online's release date, as thus far, Nintendo has only said that the service will launch in September .


"My name's Elba, Idris Elba", the British actor and star of Luther tweeted on Sunday morning, after his name was once again linked to the role of 007. "I mean what do we have to do here?" "You need a guy with physically strong presence".

Fuqua's representatives refuted the story, however, stating that no such conversation ever took place. It's all made up stuff.

When asked about the reported comments, a spokesperson for Fuqua told CNN, "This is not accurate". "Not sure how it got started".

Elba has in the past tended to dismiss the Bond rumours, insisting he is "too old" to take on the role.

He has shot down the rumours in a good humoured manner of the years - including joking that he isn't handsome enough, stating it's "a compliment" and saying it's all "rumour-ville".

Daniel Craig still has one final Bond film, the yet-untitled 25th in the series, which is expected to begin filming late in 2018.
