Bookies have revealed that Michael Fassbender is in the running to become the next James Bond, and the race has been whittled down to two actors.

It’s been reported by Coral bookmakers that bets have surged for two prospective Bond’s. UK actor James Norton and our very own Michael Fassbender are the two frontrunners said to be taking over from Daniel Craig, when he hands over his gun later this year.

 Avengers star Michael previously said that he wouldn’t be interested in playing the role of 007, and that he thought perhaps the next Bond should be a female.

We can’t help but wonder however, if he was calling our bluff, as he also stated that the new James Bond certainly won’t be named by any bookies!

“But Bond should be someone in their early 20s … I always thought Bond should be British, but let’s get an American in or maybe someone like Jack O’Connell would be good?

“Or even better, how about Jane Bond? A woman. One thing is for sure, it won’t be anyone on the bookies’ lists. It never is,” he told GQ Magazine.

We’d bet on him anyway!
