Whereas there was loads of hypothesis and fan casting, nothing is ready in stone. However when requested if a lady ought to play the following Bond, Craig stated that might be a disservice to feminine actors.
“There ought to merely be higher components for girls and actors of shade,” Craig tells the RadioTimes when requested a few feminine Bond. “Why ought to a lady play James Bond when there needs to be a component simply nearly as good as James Bond, however for a girl?”
This remark echoes the emotions of longtime James Bond movie producer Barbara Broccoli who stated in 2020, that “James Bond may be of any shade, however he’s male,” including, “I imagine we needs to be creating new characters for girls — robust feminine characters… I’m not notably eager about taking a male character and having a lady play it. I feel ladies are way more fascinating than that.”
