The lack of gay James Bond movies proves Hollywood is homophobic!

You can think so, but can you show me where he has ever been gay? So in order to be PC you need to force him gay rather than make a new character?

Disgusting.

Well even in the theory you support (fine with me) you could have a gay Bond, if M16 suddenly said they were using his original name for a duplicate Bond, or they would now use it as a code-word for other agents.
It might not be the original Bond, but an appended Bond.
I wouldn't be surprised if there's cheap erotica like that already since the 1970's, and if it's a sub-genre in gay porn.
I actually haven't checked, and that's beyond ATS.

But I don't need a "gay Bond", there's lots of camp and queer moments in the other ones (without the character himself being "gay").
But that all depends on the audience and eye of the beholder.

But as far as the OP is concerned, yeah sure there could be side-characters that could be more reflective of a more open and equal society nowadays.
Or even missions to free fellow agents in less equal societies.
I'm not sure how that would go down with leftist audiences either, since they like socialist and Islamist fascism more than they like lgbt people, and it would probably be banned in all the homophobic countries and ideologies the queer left usually, and ironically supports.

The OP should consider it's a very delicate matter, and these movies have to sell and push products not only in Europe and North America, but a whole range of largely homophobic spheres of the globe, where little has changed since the 1960's.
And due to leftist open door policies, these homophobic ideologies are now pushing into the Western sphere too.

But I'm happy with Mr. Bond as is.
Not every actor, but certainly the character, and I can read him my way.

I'm not sure if the producers can be expected to have an openly gay Bond, when the movies have a multi-million Dollar budget, and then they're banned or censored to pieces in half the world, and don't make much income.

Before that happens the left that shouts "homophobia" in Western countries must first challenge and get rid of homophobia in those cultures and countries.
I won't hold my breath ...

You see the clip from skyfall?.
My point is Bond would do anything for Queen and country...he is Bond.
Oh and I'm not being PC or anything I think Daniel Craigs Bond does flirt with other Men in his movies it is subtle but thats the feeling I have.
It's a fictional character we can all think any way about him...no one is wrong here.

Bond could by black but he can't be gay and certainly not a woman and he must be a Brit.
He is a sexist, womanising, British man and that's it.

So we have Bond being the same guy in every film .. and suddenly we stop and change it all to please a PC gay crowd and force feed a gay Bond? That's disgusting.

How about you make a new franchise?

I got it, how about we make Indiana Jones a black woman. We can say Indiana was always a girls name and that she was black with a skin disease that was cured and she was actually born a woman in a man's body.

Because none of this PC crap is ludicrous.

Bond is a person, not just a code word. He can't be black. Make a new character, 008.

Get the guy who played Luther to play him maybe, I love that guy.

Love that guy. If they want to make a black 00 agent go for it, Bond doesn't have to be the only one with a movie.

Idris Elba - not only could he be Bond, but he may well be.

First of all, all fiction has a set lore and canon.


Tell that to the producers of The Dark Tower, not quite sure how Detta Walker is going to call The Gunslinger a honky mofo in this one.


Oh gods, I know. If the racism component between Detta, Roland, and Eddie didn't exist, I wouldn't mind but now I have no idea how that will be reconciled.

Then again, we white wash so many other things in western society movies (Egyptians, Natives, Mexicans, Jesus, etc) so I guess it shouldn't come as a shock if it goes the other way even when it doesn't make sense to.

How can he be Bond when Bond is a white guy?

Easy, you just say, you are not the original Mr. Bond, but for intelligence purposes we shall call you "James Bond".
More like a spin-off, or parallel franchise.
It would have to be really good to work though.
Then we could have an openly gay Bond, and leave the original intact.

It would be lower budget, because it might not sell or be restricted/censored in homophobic parts of the world.
James Bond is a global franchise, and not all countries or ideologies have radically changed to accept open homosexuality.
That's one thing the OP should consider.
It will have a smaller turnover and marketing potential for products.
It may even lead to boycotts (I could think of 11 countries immediately).

It could still be classic though.

So basically he is not Bond .. but to make the gays Happy you make a gay character and call him Bond .. even though he is not Bond.

Genius. Makes complete sense.

I was thinking Kirk Cameron.

Right age, ethnicity, and I'd love to hear his British accent.

I mean not as the gay spin-off I suggest, but as the real one.

Let's take the saving the world for Anglo-Saxon Christian culture to the next level.

I'd buy the deodorant, and he's fetching in a suit.
