Although the "Luther" star himself has flipped-flopped on his stance about playing 007 over the years - initially saying that he "would do it", before later dismissing it and saying he didn't want to be known as "the black Bond" - even Steven Spielberg has gone on record as saying that Elba would be his "first choice" for Bond. (Current star Daniel Craig is 50.) This January, Elba suggested the Bond role could one day be played by a woman.

Last August, Craig had revealed he would return to the iconic role one last time, having previously played Bond four times: Casino Royale, Quantum of Solace, Skyfall, and Spectre.

Fuqua detailed a conversation he had with Bond producer Barbara Broccoli at the launch of his new business venture, SoundFi, and said Broccoli felt that the time had come for an actor of an ethnic background to play the legendary spy and felt that it was not an "if" but a "when". She is also reported to have said that the casting of a minority as 007 "will happen eventually". You need a guy with physically strong presence.
