As Daniel Craig’s retirement as agent 007 nears, rumors about Henry Cavill playing as James Bond increases, making fans from all over the world super excited.

After being rumored to play as Jack Hayde of “Fifty Shades Darker,” Henry Cavill’s name was again in abuzz after being link to be the new Bond of Steven Spielberg’s movie.

After the latest three successful and mind blowing installments of the movie, with a fourth, “Spectre,” the team, including Daniel Craig himself is now wrap-up to tease the fans as he stated that there is a possibility that he will be leaving behind his black suit and tie any time now making many fans speculate more that Henry is definitely the new James Bond.

According to the official website of Henry, henrycavill.org, he auditioned for the role along with Daniel, back in 2005, but since he was just 22 yearsold at that time, the studio thought that he was too young to be James Bond, so he lost out to Daniel Craig.

In addition to his statement on his official website, Henry, being more humble than ever still savors his memory and experience of his audition. According to the actor, the audition was full of action which included an all-day fight sequence after hours of training.

“It was really painful. I felt like I had been genuinely beaten up by the end of the day,” he recounted.

Based on Inquistr, Henry disappointedly stated that he obviously wasn’t right for Bond despite “Casino Royale” director, Martin Campbell pushing to cast him. Henry also admitted that he is secured that he gave his all. “I did (audition), and I wasn’t right. That’s all.”

Henry Cavill’s fans from all over the world who are part of his “Cavillry” has been expanding since he played as Superman in the “The Man of Steel” are in hopes that he will now be able to play as the iconic James Bond since Daniel will be departing soon.

Now, we will be able to justify if he is fit for the role as he portrayed a suave Bond-like spy in his new movie, the revival of “The Man from U.N.C.L.E” alongside with Armie Hamer. The movie is directed by Guy Ritchie and is a version of the 1960’s TV series of the same name.
