While an American has never played Bond, several have appeared as villains in the franchise. However, Johnson doesn’t seem to have any desire to join the franchise in such a manner.
Daniel Craig wrapped up his tenure as James Bond earlier this fall.
“I don’t want to be a villain,” he asserted. “You got to be Bond.”
It’s unclear when the next Bond film will be released, as no replacement fwwe” target=”_blank”>or<
Johnson, however, has a full slate of films in the coming years, including his entry into the DC franchise with “Black Adam” and a sequel to his recent Disney venture “Jungle Cruise.”
