The James Bond series has been heavily criticized for its portrayal of women and old-fashioned British imperialism which is considered to be misogyny. But with the new American director Cary Joji Fukunaga and Phoebe Waller-Bridge as the screenwriter, the image of James Bond as the main character as well as the whole movie nuance seems to have changed.
Fukunaga thinks that the outdated portrayal of the characters and story is no longer relevant. He stressed that the world has changed, the rules of espionage are darker in this era of asymmetric warfare, as reported by Euronews.
Aside from the changes in the portrayal of the characters, there are also speculations about who will be the next James Bond as this is the final Bond movie for Daniel Craig. A few big names such as Tom Hardy, Idris Elba, and Regé-Jean Page have been mentioned as the rumored next James Bond.
However, some fans also expressed their desire to see a woman playing the role of agent 007. Lupita Nyong’o and Suranne Jones are some of the most mentioned names that are considered would be perfect for the role.
