James Bond has been a symbol of masculinity among many action movie characters, and he has been played by several famous actors such as Pierce Brosnan and Daniel Craig, to name a few.

The production team is currently looking for its next 007, and fans are taking this opportunity to campaign for a female Bond.

Fans Demand Female James Bond, Former Actors Support The Idea

In a Twitter data analysis conducted by SEMrush, 47% would like to have a female agent, 25% were against it, and 27% were neutral. During the time this study was conducted, the popular hashtag #JaneBond arose.

Gender-swapping in movies has been a popular trend that accelerated over the past decade.

From Ocean’s 8 to Ghostbusters, these movies were originally popularized with male actors in the lead roles.

With the rumor that a new female Bond character will emerge, Craig replied with an enthusiastic, “Yes, of course!” (via Express).

Brosnan also supported this idea and told the Hollywood Reporter, “Yes! I think we’ve watched the guys do it for the last 40 years, get out of the way, guys, and put a woman up there.”

Producer Says James Bond Stays A Man

Meanwhile, other actors are not so keen on this new concept. Ana de Armas, who played Paloma in No Time To Die, said in an interview with The Sun, “There’s no need for a female Bond.

There shouldn’t be any need to steal someone else’s character, you know, to take over. This is a novel, and it leads into this James Bond world, and this fantasy of that universe where he’s at.”

With this in mind, the actress proposed that women in movies should be given substantial roles.

What I would like is that the female roles in the Bond films, even though Bond will continue to be a man, are brought to life in a different way.

That they’re given a more substantial part and recognition. That’s what I think is more interesting than flipping things.”

Barbara Broccoli, the producer of the James Bond franchise, told The Guardian that she’s not up to the idea either. “He’s a male character. He was written as a male, and I think he’ll probably stay as a male.

We don’t have to turn male characters into women. Let’s just create more female characters and make the story fit those female characters.”
