No, Henry Cavill and Margot Robbie are not the new faces of the James Bond franchise.

A fan-made movie trailer uploaded to YouTube on April 13 that uses Cavill and Robbie's likeness claiming to tease Bond 26 has received more than two million views on the video streaming platform. Despite the high-profile celebrity names and iconic spy franchise attached to the video, though, the trailer is entirely fake.

The video originates from the YouTube channel KH Studio, which writes in its "about" page that it creates "concept trailers" as a means of creating "anticipation for future releases, working in tandem with current movie trailers." The channel, which has been active for over one year, has created dozens of fake movie trailers in recent months, including videos that purport to show a third Top Gun movie, a new Spider-Man film starring Andrew Garfield and a fake teaser for a fourth Back to the Future movie, among others.

In reality, neither Cavill, 40, nor Robbie, 33, are known to be attached to the next entry in the long-running James Bond series, which series producer Barbara Broccoli is in the process of retooling after Daniel Craig ended his five-movie run as 007 with 2021's No Time to Die.

Cavill's name has been attached to Bond for years given his stature as a British leading man with a history of making action films. The actor has spoken in the past about taking a screen test prior to Craig's casting for 2006's Casino Royale. In February, Cavill's Argylle director Matthew Vaughn recalled that he knew Cavill came close to landing the role during a SiriusXM interview.

“It got down to the last two for Bond… And I know that the director preferred your audition. But [producer] Barbara [Broccoli] preferred [Craig],” Vaughn told Cavill at that time. “So, just so you know, and they decided you were too young.”

Cavill, who is currently promoting his new World War II movie The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare, recently spoke to ongoing rumors that he could one day play Bond during an April 15 appearance on The Rich Eisen Show.

"I have no idea. All I've got to go off is the rumors, so it's the same information you have," he said. "Maybe I'm too old now, maybe I'm not. We'll see. It's up to Barbra Broccoli and [coproducer] Mike Wilson, so we'll see what their plans are."

Aaron Taylor-Johnson has emerged as a favorite of Bond casting rumors in recent months. Though no announcement has yet been made, reports in U.K. newspaper The Sun claimed in March that Taylor-Johnson, 33, was formally offered the role. In interviews, though, the actor has remained tight-lipped over anything 007-related.

“I can only really talk about the things I’m going to show and tell,” he told Rolling Stone UK in an interview published days after that casting report. “So, The Fall GuyNosferatuKraven the Hunter. I’m here to promote those.”
