Daniel Craig has some ideas about what the future of the James Bond series should look like, specifically that he believes the world doesn’t need a woman or person of color to play Bond. because women and people of color deserve better than just taking over a tired old franchise like 007 (he didn’t use the words “tired” and “old”, but it was implied). It makes sense for him to have that kind of attitude, since the next No time to die It’s his latest Bond movie and he probably couldn’t care less if they’ll ever make more, but his co-star Ben Whishaw has a little more hope that the series could and should change.
Talking with Variety, Whishaw (who plays Q in the new movies) said that “if they want to continue with this character and the franchise,” then they have the opportunity here to “blow up and do anything.” He has no specific ideas, but he thinks the Bond series managers “should do something pretty radical” to keep the movies relevant to the “different times” we live in now. (This is surely not what he means, but how about a James Bond movie where everyone has to worry about washing their hands and wearing masks?) Whishaw knows that some people want the movies to always be the same, But he believes that you can “Honor character and tradition” and at the same time find a way to “push it forward.”
Again, he does not offer any advice on excuse me to do that, but just like Craig, you probably know it’s not your problem anymore. seeing as Amazon now owns MGM (the studio that controls the James Bond series), however, maybe we can finally get a billionaire James Bond? Maybe one who is also a bald nerd? That would really mean a lot to the bald people of the world. Nerdy billionaires.
