Yes they gave her the moniker as symbolism of her becoming the new "bond". It is a PC message done on purpose. I don't know why the PC culture wants people to think trained woman are equal to or superior to trained men in combat. There is a reason there are men's and women's divisions. I find it insulting. Are women so inferior they need to create a fake reason for girls to think a strong woman is possible? Personally I think there are plenty already.


As a woman I was going to say a similar thing. I feel embarrassed that they shoehorn women into everything as if we need it.
I want to say from decent woman folk a hearty 'Sorry, we don't want this either'.

I hate, absolutely hate 'magical wimmins' that can fight as if they are 6 foot + tall and are super men.
I hate it, it looks stupid and it isn't real. They are made up and that is actually insulting, as if we can only be good if we behave like men but with boobs.

Give me a Jessica Fletcher or Charlies Angels or UKs Jonathan Creek with Caroline Quentin in it. These are normal woman, clever, fighting to their rabilities [yes even Charlies Angels] or not fighting at all and using brains instead.
As a woman I don't want to fight, I am not interested in women being blokey, we have blokes for that.

What will happen is that young women want to be like their heroines and soon find out that they can't emulate anything at all, because it's all made up and maybe it will daunt on them that women and men are not the same after all but it doens't mean one is better than the other. Just different.

I want to be different from men.

As to a character which is clearly conjured up so that black people and some [few] women don't cry; as others have said, write new material and include them, nobody is stopping you. To take loved characters and appropriate them [she's not JB but she is a spy with the number 007...pffff] or just change them, will leave fans of the afore mentioned pissed off.

Where will the inclusivity stop?
I want a blind and disabled James Bond, I want 3 gay men [with AIDS] to ply Charlies Angels, I want Poirot to be played by Arnold Schwarzenegger or Idris Elba but with a heavy American accent. I want a ginger girl child in the role of Jesus...maybe then, when all the absurdities have been ticked, we can go back and enjoy our beloved characters as they used to be.

Fans are people too and they want the characters they like. It's incredibly rude and condescending to just change them for smug points.

Reading between the lines it sounds as though she's only going to be in it for a few minutes at the start in order to get James Bond out of retirement - a 'token' gesture if you will. I wouldn't be at all surprised if after finding Bond this new 007 is killed, leaving James to track down her killers or something.

So likely this will be a combination of trolling their audience and testing the waters. Think about it, they'd have to be literally insane to replace James Bond (granted that's also a possibility).

This is why we can't have nice things karen.
She couldn't be 006 or 008; she has to be 007?
Sadly I would submit its not bond without him as 007.
I like the franchise; hope they don't screw it up to prove how pc they are.

So there is no woman playing bond.

Lets just clear that up because you're not the only one jumping to this conclusion.

Now lets, look at your claim that female here movies movies are losing money at the box office, this is factually incorrect. Lets take Wonder Woman, made just over $800 Million of a production budget of $140 Million so yeah it made a lot of money, Captain Marvel made $1.1 billion so again made rather a lot of money, actually so far this year the only movie to beat it has been end game.

So yeah, you are factually incorrect to argue that female led hero movies do not make money. They make tons of money.

Is End Game the one where Ellen DeGeneres played Antonia Stark and Amy Schumer did the voice for Rocket?

No, sorry, you need to get you're facts right, Ellen played the hulk and Melissa Mccarthy played Tony Stark.

So james Bond is retired at the beginning of the movie, so someone else has his Code name. And it's a black woman.

omg the world is ending oh no.

Your post reminded me of previous Hollywood movies where the world goes to absolute s***t when a black dude is President of the United States. The Day After Tomorrow; "Olympus Has Fallen" etc etc. Hahahaha hilarious.

But still, most don't agree with the new 007 being a (black) woman. They should have stopped at a black male or something...

God I hate "tokenism"; that's ten times worse than "PC culture".

Like leading British public school Eton College back in the day having a "token" kid... Jeez...

In the previous itteration they said that Bond was too archaic and an artifact from a generation of spys long gone
he was a weapon that no longer had a use in the modern world !

Will this switch to bond see a move away from all out fighting action to a more stealth and subterfuge bond with not a lot of action and combat scenes ?
more to tech and stealth than brute force and martial skills or will they still have all the sexism and innuendo and figthing ?

Yeh cus who didnt want to see gal gadot in that outfit ?

hjahaha I jest , wonder woman is actually a really decent movie

and I think any action film based on or around cartoons and comic books will do well in holywood as it has everything
as expressed by Stan Lee in his interview

I think this bond will be fine even though its a curveball to the already developed story of bond being male
and Ian Fleming never having written a story based around a female spy called 007 , so its a bit weird for the die hard fans to digest
no one likes change when its a thing they hold dear !
Who is it that really wants this bond movie to happen , why do they want to make a bond movie with a woman as 007
who is making this happen ?

so does this mean that when we remake movies with male actors as the protagonist , we also have to remake movies with female leads as male just for the sake of it?
are they making bond a woman for what reason exactly ?
just for equality in 2019 ?

I mean are we going to remake Harry Potter with a female lead role just for the sake of it

Another problem with this besides what are they going to do with the traditional sexual tension in all James Bond movies is the name.

Is she going to be called Jamilika Bond? A better name, the bisexual name Jaime. How about Jaime Bond


So she could say, just like the old bond movies when asked what’s your name

She can say:

Bond, Jaime Bond

Or they can simply not have a passing of the torch. No one watches Bond to see him pass the torch on to another. They would watch to see another person try to be 007 and fail so they need Bond back.

According to insiders a major subplot of the movie is Bond passing the spy torch on to her. She becomes the next "Bond".

Thankfully from what I am reading this will be the end of this Bond. Other directors are looking to do a reboot for the next film.

Cultural misappropriation?

I cant wait for wonder woman to be trans. Get that Hempsworth dude to play it. Anyway...guess ticket sales arent taken into account nowadays when making a film.


The Hulk will soon start to identify as a woman and have man-periods, Bucky and Falcon will both come out and be introduced as a coupe in their new tv series and Drax will start donning a metal bra to protect his sensitive nipples.

I UNDERSTAND THAT BUT WHEN SHE GETS THE JOB WILL SHE HAVE A FEMALE MONIKER SIMILIAR TO BOND.

I'm not outraged BTW just half as interested. This is not too important in the great scheme of things.

They should cast an attractive black woman if they’re going to pull this nonsense. Lynch is most definitely not beautiful as the insider said. Of course, the fact that she’s not a looker might be some kind of virtue signaling. I only hope it’s a one-time stunt.
