Henry Cavill is “keen to explore” the idea of playing a James Bond villain.

The 38-year-old actor – who is best known for playing Superman – has revealed he’d love to speak to the makers of the long-running film franchise about starring in a Bond movie.

Henry – who was previously considered for the role of Bond before Daniel Craig was cast as 007 – told The Movie Dweeb: “If Barbara [Broccoli] and Michael [G. Wilson] were interested in me in any capacity to be a part of their movies, then I will gladly have that discussion, and that would be something I’d be very keen to explore further.”

Last year, Henry admitted he would still love to become Bond – despite being overlooked for the coveted role in the past.

The film star auditioned for the role of 007 at the age of 22 and although other big-name actors have been linked to the part in recent years – including Idris Elba and Tom Hardy – Henry admits he’d still relish the opportunity.

He said: “If Barbara and Mike were interested in that, I would absolutely jump at the opportunity.

“At this stage, it’s all up in the air. We’ll see what happens. But yes, I would love to play Bond – it would be very, very exciting.”

Daniel Craig plays Bond for the last-ever time in ‘No Time To Die’.

However, he nearly rejected the role when it was first offered to him.

He recently said: “I just said I can’t. I mean … I think you got the wrong guy.

“People used to say, ‘Oh you must have always wanted to be James Bond.’ I went well, yeah, as a kid I kind of thought about it. I wanted to be Spiderman as well, but I just thought it was never going to happen.”
