Idris Elba teases fans amid James Bond casting rumors

It was believed that the actor was one of the frontrunners for the role after Daniel Craig's term as the super British spy, James Bond, ends and the actor's recent tweet has only fuelled the speculations further.

The actor posted a filtered selfie - only featuring the top part of his face - with the words "my name's Elba, Idris Elba". Apparently, the article said, the 45-year-old "Luther" star is in the running to play the titular role if the actor now playing Bond, Daniel Craig, retires from the part.

The online version of the Daily Star's story includes multiple promotions for Fuqua's new business, selling headphones that can be worn in the cinema in order to provide a surround-sound experience.

His tweet was retweeted thousands of times by excited followers.

Elba most recently starred in Taika Waititi's Thor: Ragnorak, where he played Heimdall, the all-seeing and all-knowing Asgardian and former guard of the Bifrost Bridge.

It quoted Hollywood director Antoine Fuqua recalling a chat with longtime Bond producer Barbara Broccoli, who allegedly said "it is time" for an ethnic minority actor to star as 007 and "it will happen eventually".

The 45-year-old Elba, best known for his roles in the critically acclaimed HBO series The Wire as well as Luther and Star Trek, is no stranger to the rumors.

"Idris could do it if he was in shape". "You need a guy with physically strong presence. [He] has that", she reportedly said.
