On Sunday morning (August 12), the actor took to Twitter to post a heavily-filtered selfie along with the caption: "my name's Elba, Idris Elba", which mirrors 007's famous catchphrase: "The name's Bond..."
Elba, 45, made his name in gritty USA television drugs drama "The Wire" and won a Golden Globe for his role as a murder detective in "Luther", before moving to the big screen.
He has been in blockbusters such as "Thor", "Pacific Rim" and "Star Trek", and was nominated for a Golden Globe for playing the title role in "Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom". The original story came from United Kingdom tabloid The Daily Star, which claimed that director Antoine Fuqua spoke with James Bond producer Barbara Broccoli about implementing a Black James Bond into the franchise.

It is expected to be Craig's final outing as 007, having previously starred in "Casino Royale", "Quantum of Solace", "Skyfall" and "Spectre".
