James Bond: movies, books and comics news


#884

Is there anything she can’t do?


#885

I hear she’s going to play Meryl Streep and John Cena in a bio pic.


#886

Meryl Streep and John Cena or Meryl Streep as John Cena?


#887

Yes, plus John Cena as Meryl Streep.


#888

But she’s not British! #NotMyBond.


#889

Meryl Streep and John Cena or Meryl Streep as John Cena?

Both.


#890

Make her face portray emotion?


#891

#892

I’d be OK with a female James Bond but we have to get a male Mary Poppins in return.


#893

Or create a new female character similar to Bond.


#894

Yeah, I don’t know if that would be a good idea, either. To some extent, Bond has to be a mysogynist, toxic mess of a man. It’s what makes the character interesting.

I guess you could have a female version of this - kind of a Jenny Sparks sort of personality, only sexualised - buuuuut… I wouldn’t really see the point.


#895

Atomic Blond basically already did that.


#896

Cool. Still have to watch that one, I’m afraid.


#897

It’s not a great movie but it definitely showed that a female Bond would work just fine.


#898

Yeah, as much as I think it could be an interesting take, I think maleness is quite essential to Bond’s character in a way that isn’t always true for characters that people have suggested switching (like The Doctor, say).

Presumably it also showed that those characters can be done fine in other movies, without having to make such a big change to Bond that would affect other elements of his character.


#899

Bond is a brand name though.

Broughton isn’t yet.


#900

She’s called Modesty Blaise, done back in 1963.


#901

Piers Morgan: still a wanker.
