The only thing I remember about Spectre was the tentacle sex, the Nazi dude (from that Brad Pitt movie), and Drax.

as for 25, what happened to the new girl Bond?  Oh I get it, more Hollywood smoke and mirrors to please the progressive crowd.

Oh no!  Bond's love interest has deep dark secret that she's been hiding!

Like having a father working for Quantum/Spectre didn't count.

Meh, can we get another season of 24 instead please?

Nah, do you really want to see old Jack Bauer, how would that be any different from the current SW movie.  Another Atomic Blonde on the other hand.

Yes, I want Jack Bauer to have his own movie! He gets better with age too, just like me! LOL

As of yet, still an unverified rumor... and an unfounded one, if Executive Producer Barbara Broccoli has her way.  It seems to have gained a small amount of credence because of Pierce Brosnan and Daniel Craig voicing support for the idea of a female Bond in the future, and No Time to Die being tipped as Daniel Craig's final film as James Bond.

There does appear to be a grain of truth at the heart of it, though, given the content of the first trailer for No Time to Die.  Lashara Lynch's character Nomi is a British 00 agent.  Maybe not 007, but a 00 nonetheless. 

Given how poorly Terminator: Dark Fate and Charlie's Angels did at the box office, I have a feeling the character won't test well with general audiences if the dialog in the trailer is a fair representation of the character.  Hollywood's recent infatuation with sh*t-talking "tough girl" leads seems to be burning itself out via a string of box office flops.  Telling James Bond to "stay in [his] lane" would, for any other Bond, be foreshadowing that that person's going to die later when he hits them with his latest cool car.

For a variety of reasons, including the board's rules, please leave your personal politics out of this. <_<

(And let's be honest, almost nobody anywhere on the political spectrum wants to see a female James Bond.)

Standard equipment from Q branch, or whomever is responsible for corralling Bond's love interests these days.

We kind of already have this in Atomic Blond and Anna, no real need to give a female badass agent an old brand.

I might give this movie a chance, but if James Bond ends up being anybody else but a white British male, I'm fukking walking out of the theater and asking for my money back.

Of course, they better not pull that $hit at the end of the movie, or asking for a refund might be a bit hard, lol!

Rami Malek could make for an interesting antagonist.  I just hope they don't saddle him with a British accent again.  :unsure:

Well, they got Lada back for a quick cameo.   I can honestly get behind the idea that Bond is just a code name, that scene in the lobby could be an indication. Would be nice though to have a tradition of stripping the old Bond of the name by having the successor thoroughly beating up.l the old Bond.

And Nomi could start by a swift and violent kick to the balls.  Bond hunger games.  :clapping:

At least through the end of this film, it would appear that James Bond is still Daniel Craig.

Frankly, I find him so appallingly bad in the role that I'll accept practically anything as long as it replaces him.  There was talk for a while there that Idris Elba would be the next Bond, which'd be a nice reward for slogging through all the terrible roles he's been stuck with in the last decade.

Prior to the James Bond soft reboot with Casino Royale, there was that fairly popular theory that James Bond was an inherited alias for the 007 codename to justify the differences in Bonds throughout the years.

An alias could give a sense of immortality after all, there will always be a James Bond.  A justification for MI6.  The guy in Skyfall could have hinted at it.  Silva could have literally meant he was a James Bond at one point with the “I was her favorite” remark.

 I wonder if the designation should change though

My quick thoughts about a female Bond.

First my quick thoughts about a non-white dude as Bond.  I've got no objections if it a Bond film taking place in our modern times.  If the movie takes places in 1950s or 1960s like in the original books that's a different story.

Now a female Bond.  I honestly don't know how they could do it.  So much of Bond's character has to do with the fact that he's a man and his relationship problems with women.  Make Bond female and your forced to just make an entirely new character who just happens to share the same name.  Do people go to these movies to watch a generic super spy adventure or to see a specific familiar character in super spy adventure?

I’ll watch a flick about a female Double-O agent no problem as long as it’s got a good story.  Call it Tales of MI-5 or something. 
 

James Bond is a man, though. English or Scottish. Race doesn’t matter, gender does.
