Henry Cavill's New Spy Movie: Nothing Like James Bond, and Critics Say That's a Good Thing
For years, Henry Cavill has been in the race to portray Ian Fleming's famous secret agent, James Bond. In fact, Martin Campbell, the director of Casino Royale, had revealed that the Superman star's audition to play James Bond was 'tremendous.' Despite his impressive audition for the 2006 film, the role ultimately went to Daniel Craig.

Now, Cavill is starring in a new spy film that bears no resemblance to the Bond series. In
Argylle: The Secret Spy (Argylle), Cavill portrays a fictional spy, his moves controlled by the author Elly Conway. With a stunning color palette and extravagant aesthetic reminiscent of Guy Ritchie's 2015 film Code Name: UNCLE (The Man from UNCLE), the $107 million production deals a blow to the rumors about Cavill as Bond. Argylle: The Secret Spy, starring the lead of The Witcher, pokes fun at many spy film cliches by using a mix of humor and action.
