Michael Fassbender On Whether He'd Take Over The Role Of James Bond In Future
The actor who brought the villainous Magneto to life in X-Men: First Class addresses the buzz surrounding him taking over the James Bond franchise from Daniel Craig. Check out his comments in full here.
While doing the press rounds for X-Men: First Class, both director Matthew Vaughn and star Michael Fassbender discussed how the character of Magneto and the film itself were inspired by James Bond movies of the 1960's. A combination of this and his performance in the the film based on the Marvel comic book led to a lot of talk that the Irish actor would be the perfect replacement for Daniel Craig when he decides to walk away from playing the iconic character created by Ian Fleming in 1953. Talking to Total Film (via Digital Spy) here's what he had to say.
"I think Daniel is doing a great job and I don't think too far into the future. It's one step at a time right now. Of course, every guy knows the feeling of walking round the house singing the song to himself, walking around corners with an imaginary gun."
"Let's see what happens."
These comments echo what Fassbender recently said when quizzed about the chances of him playing RoboCop in the José Padilha helmed reboot. He'd consider it, but won't commit to anything right now. Fairly standard replies when an actor is posed with such questions. However, it's clear there's some level of interest here and it's hard to imagine the studios not picking up on this. How would you like to see the star of X-Men: First Class play the British spy? Sound off with your thoughts in the usual place.
