Bond SHOULD be played by a woman: it's time a woman played the role


I think the new James Bond should be a trans, sis-gender, black, lesbian Muslim woman:

She should project body positivity and be around 600lb with cross eyes and saggy breasts and brown teeth and also be a trans-reptilian who sticks her tongue in and out and hisses like a snake, also she's had plastic surgery to replace her tongue with that of a lizard.

There should be a handicapped Bond soon.

A Down's Syndrome Bond would rock.

We have that. It's called Johnny English

A Parkinson's Bond would rock too!

No thanks. If a woman has to be an agent do a spinoff but don't call her Bond. Heck, just make an original movie for a woman agent and leave 007 movies as is.

Not even if it's like the sort of woman I described?

reply

especially not like what you described.

I have an entire thread on this subject and the response from the other side is: "White men have dominated cinema for the past 100 years, its time for them to step aside and stop being so racist", I even suggested the very thing you did, just make another series with a black female agent superspy and the response was "Oh so the suggestion of white men is why can't they go find their own series". It's pure lunacy. Now I will maintain this position: If the best actor for the role is a black actor but he can convincingly portrayed James Bond consistently with the source material then I don't have a problem. I just don't want:

A) A black actor for the sake of having a black actor, that would mean the best actor for the role didn't get it
B) The series to reboot and starts focusing on a female agent, that would mean it's no longer the James Bond series and therefore we'd might as well just make a new series from scratch.
