When asked if it would be "greedy" to portray both Superman and James Bond, Cavill quipped, "Greedy or awesome?"
Meanwhile, Tom Hiddleston dodged questions that he's in line to portray 007. "I play a British spy in The Night Manager, so people I think have made the link," Hiddleston explained on Tuesday's Jimmy Kimmel Live. "I mean, as somebody who grew up with Sean Connery and Roger Moore, when you mention it, there’s a part of me that goes, 'Really? Are you kidding?'"
Kimmel suggested that the next Bond actor should be American since Superman is now being portrayed by a British man (Cavill). "That's the most revolting thing I could say, right?" Kimmel asked Hiddleston. "Yes," he replied.
In October, Hiddleston seemed thrilled about the idea of taking on the iconic role when he spoke with ET. "I think any British actor that gets a phone call that says, 'Would you like to play James Bond?' There's no more enticing question than that," he admitted. "Who on God's green earth knows who's gonna play the next James Bond? [But] I'd love to be in a Bond film at some point."
