, the franchise's first black actor to take over the part? Tom Hiddleston

? Or would Craig, who has since had a change of heart, return? "If I were to stop doing it, I would miss it terribly," he said during a panel at 2016 New Yorker Festival in October, suggesting he wasn't quite done with the franchise.
