Tom Hiddleston Responds to Those Pesky James Bond Rumors 

The lead man offers a cagey response to the feverish speculation concerning his possible future as 007. 

Tom Hiddleston has a lot on his plate. He currently stars in AMC’s new show The Night Manager; he wrapped filming Kong: Skull Island and is about to start filming the third Thor film. And yet, fans seem to only have one question on their minds: Will he be James Bond or not?

Who knows how these things get started but it has been a question that has plagued the British leading man for months and months. Well, during a recent panel at Philadelphia’s Wizard World Hiddleston responded to all rumors.

“I’m sorry to disappoint you everybody. I don’t think that announcement is coming. But I’m very gratified to hear the enthusiasm. There’s not much that I can say that I haven’t already said, but I know… your guess is as good as mine to be honest, ” he said, via ScreenCrush.

It’s not encouraging, but the door is still open. So, if Hiddleston is a contender the role, it could be a while before an announcement is made.

Although the A-list star has a standing army eager to see him battling shadowy villains in a tuxedo as the iconic character, it appears, at least for the time being, all the guessing games are destined to continue.
