Whenever you think about Ian Flemings’ famous British spy you can’t help but think of a man. Well, why wouldn’t you? In every book he wrote James Bond was a handsome, dark-haired Brit that could hold his own at the poker table. But things are changing in Hollywood, and in our perceptions of superheroes. For example, DC’s Captain Marvel is a woman in the 2019 movie, the Marvel character Thor has been turned into a woman, and you have women actors starring in roles that are not unlike a Bond character, for example, Charlize Theron as a double agent in Atomic Blonde.
So, why not change things up a bit and have a woman place the role of 007 when Daniel Craig is finished? Or, why not have her introduced in a Bond movie where the agent is killed off and a new, woman agent takes over his name? So, in effect his death would be kept a secret and she would stay active under his 007 agnomen? How about that for a plot?
Some of the names that come up include stars such as Scarlett Johansson, Charlize Theron, Zoe Saldana and Emily Blunt. But can you help us out with the poll below? Choose one of the actresses we’ve listed, or add your own and maybe we’ll put on the list.
