Daniel’s Craig Revelation on being a Superhero
For as good a portrayal as Daniel Craig has delivered throughout his filmography as James Bond, this wasn’t his first choice dream. The respect for the James Bond franchise was always there, but what he thought of was to play the role of an actual superhero with supernatural abilities. When asked about the same, he replied, “I never did. I dreamed of being all sorts of other things – Superman, Spider-Man, the Invisible Man, even a good old-fashioned cowboy. But Bond, not so much, which seems ironic now… I’ve been lucky enough to land one of the best roles in movies. There’s no downside to playing Bond.”
COVID-19 Outbreak Postpones “No Time to Die”
The virus is spreading all over the planet, like wildfire. There are other film projects called-off or postponed to any further date. There’s also a similar situation with this franchise now, as MGM took a responsible decision with regards to the film. The latest edition to the James Bond movie series, “No Time To Die” starring Daniel Craig, has been postponed until November, citing the dangers associated with the dreaded coronavirus. Before the unfortunate occurrence, the movie was slated to have a worldwide release in April, the next month.
Craig Calls it a Day with the Bond Franchise
Since the release of Quantum of Solace in 2008, the collaboration of Craig and the Bond franchise had uncertainties attached to it. However, with the wrap of No Time to Die, Daniel made it very clear that this is officially his last time reprising the role of James Bond. Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, this is what the veteran had to say, “This is it. That’s it, it’s over. But I, for one, am incredibly happy I got the chance to come back and do another one, because… this movie, whatever people think of it — who knows what people are going to think of it — everybody, including these people here, just put everything into it.”
