And now, Idris Elba has responded to reports that a James Bond producer has tipped him to be 007, posting a cryptic tweet.

The actor posted a filtered selfie - only featuring the top part of his face - with the words "my name's Elba, Idris Elba".

Just days after famed James Bond producer Barbara Broccoli suggested it was time to bring more diversity to the iconic spy's lineage, actor Idris Elba is teasing fans with a playful tweet that has many wishing it were true.

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.

The message sent fans into a frenzy of excitement, as rumours abound that Elba may be named to succeed Daniel Craig as the next incarnation of 007.

Idris Elba appears to have caught wind of the latest round of rumors that he might one day play James Bond, and he's having some fun with the buzz on social media. "You need a guy with physically strong presence".

Elba, 45, has previously dismissed rumours and said he had not had any discussions with the studio about taking over the role.

However, a spokesman for the alleged source of this quote, director Antoine Fuqua, told the Hollywood Reporter that he and Broccoli had never discussed Bond or casting.

Production on the 25th Bond film, led by Oscar-winning director Danny Boyle, will begin in December.
