“If Barbara [Bond producer Barbara Broccoli] and Mike [co-producer Michael G. Wilson] were interested in that, I would absolutely jump at the opportunity,” he told GQ in 2020.
“At this stage, it’s all up in the air. We’ll see what happens. But yes, I would love to play Bond, it would be very, very exciting.”
Now, Cavill has said that “everything is always on the table” with regards to the casting rumours.
“I enjoy the large IP [intellectual property]. I enjoy a grand story. Especially when it’s popular,” he told The Sunday Times.
“Time will tell,” he added. “You don’t know which direction they want to take Bond in and so I like to say that everything’s always on the table.”
When asked if he saw any similarities between himself and the famous spy, Cavill said: “It depends. We could be talking about Daniel’s Bond, or whoever the next Bond is… They will probably be in their thirties or forties, or early forties.
“Maybe they’ll even go younger like they were considering with me when it was down to me and Daniel.”
In a new interview with GamesRadar, the actor spoke about whether he was open to the idea of him playing the main role of Commander Shepard in the rumoured Mass Effect series.
To this, Cavill said: “Very much so, yeah, all depending on how they’re executing it. The world of adaptation can be heavy or light. When I like a product, I prefer the adaptation to be less changed from the source, so it all depends.”
