The Bond character has been portrayed by different actors across 24 official Eon Productions films, including Sean Connery, George Lazenby, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton, Pierce Brosnan, and now, Craig. I'm sure there are better writers than me who have argued that James Bond hates women. The character has also come to represent a sort of British ideal-a suave lover, dresser, and thinker who can elegantly swerve past any obstacle with one hand on the steering wheel of a clean Aston Martin, the other gripping a crisp martini (you know how he takes it). However, does it make sense for Bond?
Daniel Craig has starred in Casino Royale, Skyfall and Spectre and did a tremendous job, in our opinion.
As Fleming "devoted an bad lot of time to writing this particular character", switching the gender for the sake of switching it loses a vital aspect of Bond's character as how he perceives what masculinity is and the way he treats women with this view is one of the key factors that makes him who he is.
Craig is set to star as Bond for a fifth time in what will be the 25th movie of the popular spy franchise.
"Why not create your own story rather than jumping onto the shoulders and being compared to all those other male predecessors?" she continued.
"Women are really fascinating and interesting and should get their own stories", she adds. The movie has a November 9, 2019 release date but no director has been confirmed. However, the film has yet to be titled. "Could be a woman, could be a black woman, could be a white woman, but I think, that character, everybody would like to see it have - do something different with it, why not?" "I went straight to an interview, and someone asked, 'Would you do another one?'" Craig said to Stephen Colbert. Trying to put a woman into the role of a man that objectified women quite often seems kind of odd just at the outset and honestly I don't believe it would work the way some think it would.
