    Hollywood won't stop until they make J'Aymie Bond into a gay, black, trans sexual whatever...

    It's a race to see who can twist it the most...

    And that guarantees a 51% approval rating in modern America.

    I have no problem with a movie starring a skilled, almost super-human spy that happens to be female. But James Bond is a dude.

    Anyone see Atomic Blonde? Fun movie.

    Hey, Atomic Blond was a decent film of the genre ... but James Bond is James Bond, not Jane Bond. (I'd not mind seeing them attempt a sequel of Atomic Blond, as I think Charlize Theron did a very good job with the role. Her age, compared to the newest 'kids' in Hollywood films, certainly doesn't seem to be any sort of a disadvantage or hindrance for her playing such a role, and even adds to the character.)

    Not it's time to reconsider asking Idris Elba to take on the role. Not sure he would, considering it might limit his ability to take on some of the other interesting projects and roles he's done.

    In the context of leftist gender theory, there can never be a “female” Bond character, because the concept of womanhood doesn’t even exist.

    As far as Quantum of Solace, wasn’t the nefarious scheme to corner the water rights in Bolivia, where the per capital income is something like $12.82? I have seen it probably three times and still can’t quite figure it out. I forget who the woman was in it, but I am sure she was hot.

    Craig is 51. Idris is 47. Outside of being type cast if the franchise has any future they need someone they can physically get 4-5 films out of. Idris isn't that person. As a hard core fan I would have no problem with him and would look forward to him in it.

    While woke is all fine and bad in the end this is about money. If the new chick kills the franchise she will be Replaced quickly. Skyfall set a new box office expectation for the series.

    If no time to die doesn't pull in at least $800 million execs will be Bond shopping.

    God help us if it makes $1.5 billion.
