No Female James Bond! Daniel Craig Shuts Down Woke Rumor In Bid To Appease Fans

Is James Bond saved?

According to BoundingIntoComics:

James Bond actor Daniel Craig recently reversed course and is now claiming that the iconic character created by Ian Fleming should not be a woman.

Speaking with Radio Times, as reported by The Independent, Craig stated “there should simply be better parts for women and actors of colour.”

He even questioned, “Why should a woman play James Bond when there should be a part just as good as James Bond, but for a woman?”

Craig previously claimed that a woman could be James Bond. Back in 2019, British tabloid The Mirror reported that Craig stated, “I think that ­everybody should be ­considered. Also for women and for African-Americans, there should be great parts anyway, across the board.”

Craig’s new comments with the Radio Times come two weeks before the next James Bond film, No Time To Die, is expected to release in theaters. The film arrives in theaters in the United States on October 8th. However, the film is expected to hit UK cinemas a week earlier on September 30th.

James Bond producer Barbara Broccoli previously stated that James Bond would never be a female. Back in 2018, Broccoli told The Guardian, “Bond is male. He’s a male character. He was written as a male and I think he’ll probably stay as a male.”

She added, “And that’s fine. We don’t have to turn male characters into women. Let’s just create more female characters and make the story fit those female characters.”
