Daniel Craig Says James Bond Shouldn’t Be Played By A Woman

And? If they where to do s movie with a Women it would probably be a spin off.

That's the point. 007 can be a Women and has been a few times over the history of James Bond.

Broccoli literally just said they've never done a spin off and don't plan to start doing them.

The next movie will be a new Bond, male, with the 007 designation.

Well there is a British YouTuber whose name is "James Stephanie", and who wants to be referred to as "they/them". This person also seems to be a bit overweight and could therefore serve as a great role model for a woke James Stephanie Bond.

I'm very curious if they carry forward with the ancillary Craig actors like Fiennes, Moneypenny, Q, and I suppose Lynch.

NTTD suggests they may head back to a more traditional Q role which would be nice, though they REALLY need to stop with the "super hacker hacks something to get to the next bit of expository plot" stuff because it reduces Bond to fetch quest combat scenarios and all the "spycraft" is done by some wiener at a computer. Bond should be infiltrating, seducing, bluffing, and planting devices, not just wandering around waiting to be attacked just so he can find a thumb drive on the body of the last guy he kills that gives him his next lead after it gets cracked by Q.

Granted, there are plenty of classic Bond films where his 'cover' is about as paper thin as it gets but at least they tried. Casino Royale was the last good example of it.
