Two producers who are key to the franchise, Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson, dished about Daniel Craig's final outing as the MI6 agent and gave a bit of insight into who could potentially succeed him in future installments and sure enough, Idris came up. Broccoli and Wilson were asked if they'd had any discussions with IE about taking on the mantle amid a massive push from the fanbase to get the guy in Bond's iconic tux. BB says she actually knows Idris personally, adding they're friends which seems to answer the question. Namely, yes, she has presumably chatted with him about it. She goes on to say that Idris has certainly been part of the conversation as someone who could possibly carry on the legacy but as for whose convo, exactly, she leaves it kinda vague. Obviously his involvement has been discussed at length among normies but Barb makes it sound like his name has been tossed around among the '007' honchos, too.
