He stated, “It’s a fun character. Whether I’m ruled out of Bond because of this or not is up to Barbara Broccoli and Mr. Wilson.”
While Cavill does not know if leading the cast of “Argylle” will impact his James Bond chances, he seems unfazed, enjoying his role as Argylle and recognizing the potential for the film to spawn its own spy franchise.

Jackson. The film is scheduled for release on February 2, 2024, by Universal Pictures and Apple Original Films, and will be available on Apple TV+ at a later date.
