For many years, Daniel Craig has been particularly well known for his role as the British special agent James Bond. But the 52-year-old actor didn't always want to play 007, as it has now turned out. In fact, since childhood, Craig instead had the dream of being a superhero. We'll tell you who it is here. A quantum of consolation, Casino Royale, Skyfall, Specter: Daniel Craig has embodied the preppy secret agent for some time. With No Time To Die, his latest film appearance in the cult role is coming up soon. The film recently had to be postponed due to the current corona crisis. However, Daniel Craig was not prevented from holding some interviews about the blockbuster.
In an interview with Saga Magazine (via Metro), Craig recently revealed that he actually wanted to play a completely different role since his youth. The star reports: "People always tell me: 'You must have dreamed of playing James Bond as a child.' The answer is no. I never did. I wanted to play all kinds of characters – Superman, Spider-Man, The Invisible Man and even an old-fashioned cowboy. "
Playing other roles was not easy for Craig. After all, the actor gets a lot of money for the Bond films. With the crime film Knives Out, Craig was able to achieve another great success. It remains to be seen whether he will be able to fulfill his childhood dream of becoming a superhero in the future. The chance of playing Spider-Man is relatively slim, after all, Tom Holland currently embodies the role. Possibly Craig could act as Superman in the future after Henry Cavill frees the place. We could well imagine appearing in a Marvel or DC film.
