According to Universal Pictures India, with Daniel Craig ready to bid farewell to the character after completing a successful stint of three 007 franchise films, it is said that the 35-year-old Irish actor may take over the epic role.
Evans had stated that the role was fantastic and very coveted for any actor of his generation and he would love to play the part.
However, he might not be alone in run as Oscar winning actor Denzel Washington recently made headlines when he kicked off a Twitter campaign urging fans to lobby for him to get the role of the world's most famous spy.
Meanwhile, Evans would soon be seen playing another epic character of Count Dracula in the upcoming vampire saga 'Dracula Untold,' which is based on the novel by Irish novelist Bram Stoker, and portrays vampire mythology with the true history of Prince Vlad the Impaler, depicting Dracula as a flawed hero in a tragic love story set in a dark age of magic and war.
The film, which also stars Dominic Cooper and Sarah Gadon, is set to release in Indian theaters on October 17, 2014.
