According to a recent site report Giant Freakin Robot, Daniel Craig may soon take on the role of a Marvel villain, as Kevin Feige, president of Marvel Studios, would be in talks with the actor. It would be his first role in this universe, after 15 years as James Bond.
While on the one hand the cast of the recent 007: No Time To Die greeted the actor in an exciting video, Daniel Craig’s future appears to be within the Marvel universe, in the role of the villain. The company had already begun negotiations with the actor, almost always in hero roles, as reported by the site itself.
The source, which in the past has always proved correct, she hasn’t been able to confirm the type of role the actor is going to play, leaving the imagination of all Marvel fans free. This news comes after another recent rumor, which would see the arrival of a new character on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.
At the moment Marvel or the actor himself have not confirmed or denied that rumor, leaving fans a chance to speculate which role is best for Craig, after all these years of James Bond. The last awaited chapter was precisely 007: No Time to Die, of which you can read our review here.

After the release of the last secret agent movie many wonder who will take his role and what the future of the saga will be, which we have talked about in this article. Seeing Daniel Craig as a villain in a Marvel movie would certainly be a unique experience, given his past as a good guy as James Bond.
At the moment we can do nothing but wait, as this news has not been denied or confirmed, but it would appear to come from a source that has proved correct in the past. Many also think of his role as Magneto of the X-Men, also given the recent declaration of the actor who played Professor Xavier.
