Chris Hemsworth has revealed that he’d “love to” play James Bond, once Daniel Craig steps away from the role for good.

Fans believe the 35-year-old would make the perfect Bond, following his performance as British Formula One driver James Hunt in ‘Rush’ back in 2013.

Speaking to Balance magazine, Chris said: “When we were shooting Rush someone had said that and I thought, ‘Cool, if this is my audition tape, then great.'”

“I don’t think you’ll ever meet anyone who doesn’t want to have a crack at James Bond. I’d love to do it.”

“But that’s up to so many elements and is way beyond myself; it’s not one you can pitch yourself on to either.

“It’s something that the community of Bond fans, Barbara Broccoli and the whole crew there agree on, and it has to be a very organic decision from them. There have been a lot of names thrown out there and a lot of brilliant people can tackle that one,” he added.

A number of famous faces have been tipped to replace Daniel Craig, including Aidan Turner, Idris Elba, Richard Madden and Tom Hiddleston.

Before Daniel, huge stars like Pierce Brosnan, Sean Connery, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton, and George Lazenby.

It’s believed Daniel will step down from his role as 007 after starring in Bond 25, which is set for release in 2020.
