Elba, who has been in the public conversation to take the role of 007 after Daniel Craig wraps up with "Bond 25", took to Twitter to respond to the firestorm of chatter about him being cast as the next actor to play the iconic role.

The star of shows such as The Wire and Luther on Sunday posted an artistic selfie under the words "my name's Elba, Idris Elba", echoing the spy's famous catchphrase.

Well, Elba followed that up a few hours later with another post simply telling fans "Don't believe the HYPE".

This time, a report from United Kingdom publication The Daily Star has stirred excitement.

Idris Elba as James Bond is a rumour that's been around for years, nearly as long as that one about Quentin Tarantino directing a "Star Trek" movie.

A year later he signed for Arsenal , where over the proceeding six years he won the FA Cup twice. But bringing in the Arsenal man was only half of the achievement for the Spanish club.

According to a report in Daily Star UK, producer Barbara Broccoli told director Antoine Fuqua that "it is time" for the character of Bond to be portrayed by a man of minor ethnicity.

Craig, 50, has stared as James Bond since he took over from Pierce Brosnan in 2005.

Craig will return for the fifth time as Bond in 2019, in an as yet unnamed movie directed by Oscar-winning filmmaker Danny Boyle.

Of course, Fuqua's agent later said the quote was fiction.

"I keep saying if it were to happen it would be the will of a nation because there haven't been any talks between me and the studio about any of that", he said.
