According to Bond producers, the next James Bond might be a person of color, but indeed not a woman. The new Bond, Daniel Craig, will be in No Time to Die this spring, and people dream for years about who might fill the shoes. The James Bond franchise distinguishes itself that it will proceed even after the leading actors have left. In the debate of who could be next, Bond names like Idris Elba and Tom Hiddleston were tossed around, and some wondered if a woman should take part occasionally.
No time to die made headlines last year when reports suggested that a female 007 would be included. All indications indicated that the role was taken by Lashana Lynch (Captain Marvel), but it remains unconfirmed.
The First Teaser
The first teaser for No Time to Die at least recognized that Lynch’s Nomi is a hundred and represents a new breed of spies. Although things are somewhat contrary between Nomi and Bond in the trailer, they will probably team up to take the mysterious villain Safin of Rami Malek down.

James Bond Producers On Female Bond
With the anticipation that No Time to Die will continuously arise, the question of who will be next 007 is for everyone? In an interview, Bond producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson received an update on the hunt for the newest Bond, stating that it hasn’t started because they’ve been so focused on no time to die. Anyone who is cast indeed won’t be a woman.
Broccoli explained that Bond could be of any color but certainly would be male. They tend to create new and strong female characters but not planning to make Bond as female characters as female audiences have other interests.
Broccoli is not the only one who feels this way, as Rachel Weisz once made similar comments, but perhaps those who thought a woman would still play the role. Nevertheless, a color actor may even have the chance.
Will There Be A Female Bond?
As the James Bond franchise has been expanded to stars like Idris Elba, Richard Madden, and Outlander’s Sam Heughan, so has Charlize Theron. But it is not only Barbara Broccoli who is against the proposal. Eva Green, Daniel Craig’s wife, repeated her statements saying that Bond’s playing by a woman makes no sense.
While Broccoli and others may not think that a woman might be James Bond, a valid point is made. It would be beneficial to spend more time creating new characters to play for women rather than reinventing male characters. Lynch’s playing a 00 is still exciting, although it would be even more exciting for her to lead her movie. The James Bond franchise was historically unsatisfied with its treatment of women, though it is hoped that the upcoming film would improve as Fleabag creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge worked on No Time to Die. Having female agents, even if they’re not Bond, would not be the worst thing in the world.
No time to die certainly looks forward to taking steps to lift the “Bond Girl” for the next issue.
Last 007 outing of Daniel Craig hits theaters on April 10th.
