‘James Bond’ Producer Addresses Rumors That A Woman Will Play 007
The "James Bond" franchise producer broke her silence about whether a woman will replace Daniel Craig as 007 after his final appearance in 'No Time To Die'.
Ever since Daniel Craig announced that he would be stepping down as James Bond following the release of the next Bond movie No Time To Die, liberals have been clamoring to have the iconic character played by a woman. Now, Bond producer Barbara Broccoli has revealed whether or not he will indeed be played by a woman in a new interview.
Broccoli Reveals If Woman Will Play James Bond
“He can be of any color, but he is male,” Broccoli told Variety.
While some liberals have been calling for Bond to be played by a woman, others have been demanding a black man be cast in the role, and Broccoli’s statement indicates that producers are considering that. Broccoli went on to defend herself from the inevitable liberal backlash that will come from her saying that Bond should be played by a man.
“I believe we should be creating new characters for women — strong female characters,” Broccoli said. “I’m not particularly interested in taking a male character and having a woman play it. I think women are far more interesting than that.”
Producers Don’t Want Daniel Craig To Leave
Though it’s been two months since Craig said that he won’t be playing Bond again, Broccoli has had difficulty accepting it. Daniel Craig has been starring as the legendary MI6 agent for the past fourteen years, and it’s clear that the idea of replacing him is a difficult prospect.
“I’m in total denial,” Broccoli said Craig’s departure. “I’ve accepted what Daniel has said, but I’m still in denial. It’s too traumatic for me.”

Fox News reported that controversy arose over the new film back in July, when it was claimed in the press that the next Agent 007 would be portrayed by British actress Lashana Lynch, with the upcoming movie No Time To Die revealing her 007 status.
However, the release of the movie’s trailers appear to have dispelled these rumors, much to the relief of fans everywhere.

Social Media Users Praise Broccoli
Social media users have been praising Broccoli for refusing to back down to liberals and cast a woman as Bond.
Oh my god finally someone had guts to say it. Please please all take notes. If you want women to play action roles create new ones than turning male roles to female!!!! That may be the best statement of the new year 2020.

Making female versions of male characters is not a way to empower women. You don’t empower women by giving them sloppy seconds. WRITE GOOD FEMALE CHARACTERS.

Finally someone with common sense.
People have no issues with strong female leads, people have issues with people switching out well established male leads, with female leads (Ghostbusters anyone?) just to pander to the social justice warriors. pic.twitter.com/cdxAfgcTwb

We hate to break it to liberals, but James Bond is a MAN, and he will be played by one going forward. Find something else to be triggered by today, liberal snowflakes!
