Henry Cavill has odds cut for Bond job amid Superman exit rumours

| 12.09.2018

Superman actor Henry Cavill is now among the frontrunners to replace Daniel Craig as the next James Bond.

The 35-year-old is now just 8/1, from 14/1, to play Ian Fleming’s famous sleuth.

It wouldn’t be the first time Cavill has pitched up as a spy either. He performed a notable turn in the 2015 reboot of The Man from U.N.C.L.E.

Regardless, he remains behind a number of the big hitters from the industry, with Tom Hardy still leading the way at 2/1.

Idris Elba is just behind at 4/1, followed by James Norton at 8/1.

Bodyguard actor Richard Madden is available at 10/1, as we reported last week.

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “Reports suggesting Cavill will leave Warner Bros have left us with no choice but to slash odds on him playing another of Hollywood’s biggest names.”
