Re: Bond 25 title and release date revealed: No time to die will open on 3 April 2020

'm all for a female Bond

Jodie Comer of Killing Eve fame would be my choice. Just how cool is Villanelle....

Although Jodie Comer is brilliant, I doubt the Bond franchise would go for that. God, it took a long time for people to get over the shock of a female Dr Who!!

I think Dame Judi Dench was superb as M.

Yes she was and it's a shame they killed her off.

There are certain things that should be left. I mean if they remade the easter story with Jesus as a female they would be an outcry if not a holy war.

 

Doctor Who has lost it's way a long time ago. Round about the time Matt Smith left although it took me a while to appreciate his take on it, in the end he did a good job. Capaldi was okay but poor writing left to a lacklustre story line. Jody whitaker just cremated it and locked it in a casket which was dropped off at marianas trench.

 

A female bond is not a good idea however a counterpart who is an agent but not one of his floosies could work.

I tend to agree @anticpated 

Don't get me wrong, I'm all for equality but there are some things that wouldn't work.

We spoke earlier about Jodie Comer (Villanelle in Killing Eve) as a contender. I can't see it at all, purely because of the 'type of person' Bond has always been. She would make a brilliant adversary to Bond though.

What they should do is just create more female led stories with strong female characters.
Swapping established genders of characters just reeks of "equality for equalities sake" and sends the wrong message of "oh you don't have enough representation?... Well let's just fit you in where we can" it defeats the whole point of not having enough female characters.

[ Edited ]

I know I use any chance I get to talk about F1. A lot of talk about 'we should get female drivers into this sport. They are just as capable'

So they introduce the W series. Ridiculous.

A F1 race lasts for 2 hrs. The W (Women) race last for 30 minutes! What message does that get across? 

'Women are weaker than men so we will only let the little totties race for 30 minutes'  How insulting. rage

Sorry to go off topic but this really riles me innocent
