Craig will play Bond one last time in the still untitled Bond 25 flick, although he has infamously tried to get out of the role in the past.

While you ponder that question, check out how some on Twitter are exhibiting a range of emotion, ranging from excitement, skepticism and sarcasm about Elba playing James Bond. This isn't the first time Idris Elba, a United Kingdom born actor, has been rumored to be in the running.

He said to Vanity Fair: "It could be a woman - could be a black woman, could be a white woman". I think he is probably a bit too "street" for Bond. It's not a color issue.
