Idris Elba offers cheeky tweets amid latest James Bond rumors

Two cryptic tweets from Idris Elba have again sparked speculation he may be the next James Bond

The Luther star has always been thought to be in the running to play 007 after Daniel Craig and on Sunday, he sent the rumour mill into overdrive by sharing a selfie of the top half of his face with the caption: "My name's Elba, Idris Elba". The original story came from United Kingdom tabloid The Daily Star, which claimed that director Antoine Fuqua spoke with James Bond producer Barbara Broccoli about implementing a Black James Bond into the franchise.

Daniel Craig will continue his role as James Bond for one final film.

This story first appeared in the New York Post and is republished with permission.

As of now, it is not confirmed as to who will be seen sharing the screen next to Daniel Craig in Bond 25.

Elba's fans were delighted at the news, although the star has yet to respond to any of the many replies to his tweet asking him to confirm that he is indeed lined up to play Bond.

"Idris could do it if he was in shape", Antoine said, according to the Daily Star.

Is everyone out there ready for yet another edition of incessant James Bond rumors? As fans of Bond know, that's almost exactly like the iconic "Bond, James Bond".

Nevertheless, the actor, who has played Bond since 2005's Casino Royale, has signed on for the next film, directed by Trainspotting's Danny Boyle, which is due next year. You need a guy with a physically strong presence.

Internet went into tizzy after rumours of Idris Elba being cast as the next 007. When I spoke to Elba earlier this year he told me he had never been approached for the part.
