Aaron Taylor-Johnson briefly addressed the James Bond casting rumor once again as it continues to make waves around the web.

The Kraven the Hunter actor has long been rumored to become the next 007 after Daniel Craig exited the iconic role in 2021. So far, the producers of the James Bond franchise have not officially confirmed the casting.

Ever since the rumor made its rounds online, fans have supported the idea of Taylor-Johnson potentially becoming the new 007 and are waiting to see whether it comes to fruition.

During a recent red carpet interview, Taylor-Johnson was asked whether he already feels tired of being asked about the James Bond casting rumor.

He simply responded, "You sick of asking the question? Alright, have a good one."

It's not surprising to see that the actor didn't give any definitive response to the casting rumor and remained tight-lipped on the speculation which continues to persist.

If Taylor-Johnson is indeed going to be the next 007, it is likely that we will hear confirmation about it once the producers are ready to make an official announcement soon.

We can safely say that the actor will continue to either deny or not comment on the rumor in the coming months if he gets asked again in future interviews until a confirmation happens.

There is a lot of anticipation right now for the James Bond casting since it is one of the most iconic roles in cinema and has big shoes to fill for whoever takes it. Hopefully, we will finally know the new actor soon enough.

For now, fans can catch Taylor-Johnson in the upcoming Sony/Marvel movie Kraven the Hunter which will arrive in theaters this August 30.
