He played James Bond for an impressive 15 years.

And Daniel Craig looked dashing in a pale blue ensemble as he signed autographs while arriving at his Broadway Play in New York City on Friday.

The 53-year-old actor, who was last on stage in a 2013, showed off his toned physique in a tight blue shirt and matching trousers as he prepared for his performance in the Broadway adaptation of Macbeth. 

Daniel added a pair of grey Nike trainers to the look, while accessorising with a cap and stylish sunglasses.

In the revival of William Shakespeare's tragedy, the James Bond frontman stars alongside Ruth Negga, who makes her Broadway debut playing Lady Macbeth.

Preview performances began at Midtown Manhattan's Longacre Theatre on March 29 with an opening set for April 28.

Tony Award-winner Sam Gold will direct. Barbara Broccoli, who produces the James Bond films with her brother, is a producer.

Eager fans have been patiently waiting for news about the next James Bond movie after Daniel Craig's last hurrah as 007 arrived on screens in September. 

But Barbara has now told patient fans they could still be waiting some time  for the 26th Eon film as shooting for the next epic is 'at least two years away'.

The producer, 62, who creates the Bond franchise with her half-brother Michael G. Wilson, said they are still trying to cast Daniel's successor and are in no rush to do so.

Speaking at a dinner where she and screenwriter Michael, 80, were awarded BFI fellowships, Barbara also hinted at some major changes to the character as she said they are 'reinventing' the MI6 agent.

According to the Daily Mail's Richard Eden, she teased: 'I'd say that filming is at least two years away. It's a reinvention of Bond.'

Amid rumours of who will become the seventh actor to play Bond, Barbara insisted that they don't currently have anyone in the running for the famous party.

She also said she and Michael have not started writing a script for the upcoming 007 film because they want to first make decisions on casting and how they will approach the next instalment.

The news that fans could be left waiting years until the return of Bond comes after Daniel's last film No Time To Die was delayed for 18 months amid the ongoing Covid crisis before its September release.

The film was originally scheduled for release in November 2019 but was postponed to February and then April 2020 following the departure of original director Danny Boyle due to creative differences.

A China premiere and publicity tour was cancelled in April 2020 due to the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic, originally pushing the release back to November 2020.

In October 2020 it was delayed again to April 2021, with further delays happening in January and February of last year, with the much-anticipated film finally arriving on screen on September 30, 2021.
