    So the 007 title seems like it's going to be given to a woman in the upcoming film, no time to die.

    Here i'm wondering what they'll call the franchise after this movie? Will it be Karen bond? LOL

    honestly, it's stupid. it's not a Bond film without a proper Bond. The character this time isnt even a Bond at all so it's not a true Bond film. In my view, having watched every single Bond film, this isnt a Bond film. It's an attempted spin-off trying to masquerade as a Bond film, smelling of woke-ish shenanigans in the casting choice.

    That's not to say that women cant be "00" agents. It's just that a women can never be Bond 007. The character of 007 in the original Ian Fleming novels has always been a man. They rely on non-Fleming works to make the erroneous assertion that a woman could be Bond, So they should be honest and market it as a "00" movie and not a Bond movie.

    Should be fun to see how they plan to do it. James Bond has always been an alcoholic, misogynistic womanizer. Are they going to keep that personality or try a new James Bond? And if they do try a new direction, is it still James Bond? I'll hold my judgements until i see the movie.

    Me Too Bond aka Karen Bond. Its pretty sad, Sean Connery just died and they basically trash on something he epitomized like this.

    I think you are all overreacting. First off, she is only taking the 007 designation, not the Bond moniker. Second, she is only 007 while Bond is in exile if you read the article. To me that implies that Bond will be back. And frankly, even if he isn't, it could still be a welcome change for the franchise to have a new 007 without the Bond name. I'm not usually one to back one of these seemingly politically motivated changes, but from what I read it sounds interesting.

    No, it wouldn't be welcomed. "Bond" and 007 are synonymous with each other, everyone or at least most fans would hate that to be replaced/changed. The franchise is dying, the changing of "James Bond" just means it'll now truly die.

    Maybe they'll just call it Bond and just drop the James from it or just call it 007. As for my thoughts, I just hope that they don't screw it up like they have for most of these types of reimagined remakes that have been done in recent years.

    Yep yep. Honestly, the franchise started going downhill when Daniel Craig took over as Bond. He just didnt have the same umph as Bond. If they want a female 00, there are canonically several other 00s one of which is actually a woman. Bond is 007 and any moves to change that smells of a bit of wokeish arrogance and stupidity.

    That's the problem with these kinds of remakes. Hollywood, Disney, and other bigwigs are obsessed with "representing" a demographic through remakes, but honestly, they're just lazy and want to exploit political opinions WHILE not having to make a fresh and original story.

    Just to point out, the 007 number was not personally Bond's. When he got transfered to Foreign Affairs in You Only Live Twice, his designation changed to 7777 and someone else took up the 007 number.

    If they have interesting plot for it instead of your usual PC self insert wokeism cultures to change that into a woman i don't really see anything wrong with it. The all female ghostbusters is cringy and dumb as hell but at least not disastrous as so many implies.
    I'm only against changing shit just for the sake of PC and changing that shit.
    If they had proper plot in mind they want to put to use that need them to be changed into a woman i really have nothing against it. I mean... I can totally get behind gender bend Arthur named Artoria in example.

    I honestly don't care. I'm not sure I've seen any that were made past '97.

    Still, the franchise could simply be called Agent 007.
