    i don't get why they insist on making white characters black. are black people not good enough for their own original character? do they only deserve hand-me-downs? how is this not culture appropriation?

          I'm a liberal but I'm still angry that James bond is a black women James bond is a womanizer so a women playing James bond is a bad idea what's next? A women is gonna be Batman..

          Oh wait that just happened...

            You know, what's sad is that the actress cast for this was in Captain Marvel, which was a crap film, but she was GOOD in it. She was enjoyable on screen and was about the only thing keeping me interested. She should fire her agent for not talking her out of taking this role. This will ruin her career. I guarantee it.

              Dunno, I'm tired of this white male telling me stories. Why isn't he replaced by a black woman? White privileged Colbert with a big smile on his face is very white and way too male.

                SJW white men aren't committing mass suicide. Their insincerity is only matched by their naivete. Your half East Asian children will be white enough for the slaughter to come.

                      So instead of creating new ideas to empower these so called minorities, we instead try to change other people’s original ideas when it only benefits our own ideologies. Real race/gender washing right here folks. then again, When was the last time people have been original.

                              Why does it bother so many people that she's a black woman? Lol they hired her because she's a great actress not for her race. The same people who complain anytime race is brought up are so bothered and obsessed with the color of her skin. Daniel Craig is still going to be James bond and she will be a different character. And she's staying whether you like it or not!

                                      I have been a huge fan of the James Bond movies since I was a kid. Sean Connery remains the best one. I will no longer be watching new 007 movies. What a disgrace.

                                            Ah, yes, the female reporter who happens to be attractive is taking someone to task about whether it's okay for females to be attractive. Well, to be fair, he didn't say attractive to what. Could have just meant hungry tigers.

                                              I am NOT feeling a woman James Bond (007). I don’t care what race nor ethnicity. However, James Bond HAS to be a man.

                                              Why couldn’t they come out with a Margaretha MacLeod (Mata Hari), a woman spy?! Mata Hari simply changes like James Bond over the decades. That would have been awesome👏🏾. I’m not watching a woman named James Bond😡😩

                                                While it's obvious this film will be an epic shit pile, the Bond franchise is incredibly worn out. I've seen all the Bond films, and as a fan I simply couldn't stomach another one. This is a good way for it to die.

                                                      A big side of nope from me..... heres an idea, how about stop trying to ruin classic movies, companys/brands, comics and even videogames, stop using classic Entertainment and brands to push your virtue signaling gender morphing, diverse, onesided political agenda, don't even get me started with the new men in black or ghost busters, heck the late night show isnt what it was, it used to be about making people laugh, now its leftist politics at night with jimmy shrivel, colbert, deep down you people know you gotta walk on egg shells and cant say one funny thing, because it might offend someone..... the last good host was J leno, after he retired you people lost steam, he actually knew how to make that show special... pc outrage culture and the far left ruins everything it touches, especially comedy... havent heard funny shit on tv in a long time. I especially hate what you sissys did to converse and Gillette, heck even youtube, aint like it was in 2006 to 2013... everyday you people mess up more things, even collages, see it goes beyond just the various industries entertainment and commerce, even the right to freespeech that you dont agree with.... hate speech doesnt exist.... pretty soon will be living in a super monotoned restricted world where you cant express or say anything at all, if it differs from whoever else, because snowflakes will have you locked up for speaking your mind.... now instead of you having a different political view or opinions on things and just have someone respectfully disagreeing with you, you now have lefties smashing your head in, what happened to america..... what happened to actual liberalism, what happened to actual freedom of speech, what happened to normal entertainment without trying to push an agenda... what happened to the normal family unit with a healthy mother and father.... I'm saddened by being a part of this confused generation, least i got to see a little bit of what normalcy was before the world went to shit...

                                                          Society has lost its damn mind. Why not do a spin off instead of wrecking the franchise?
                                                          I'm Black and I'm not even going to watch it. 007 is a man period ... end of story. I couldn't wait for Craig to be replaced, but this is ridiculous.
                                                          She's not even attractive. You can't put lipstick on a pig. Damn liberals have destroyed Hollywood.

                                                          There are so many movies I can't watch and now every time I watch a new one I can't get too into it because I might have to turn it off if it goes too gay. I won't ever pay for a movie again because you just don't know the content. Watching movies has become somewhat risky and it's just get's worse.

                                                          As a population, we really need to push back. We need to crash any movie with over the top gender confusion by providing zero support at the box office. Otherwise, this trend will continue. I don't want to see any graphic portrayals of gender confusion at all. If it's needed for the story dynamic, it can be done without showing them in graphic intimate scenes. I don't even want those images in my head.

Imagine trying to de-gender German, or Russian language (and so many others). Their entire grammar depends on gender.
                                                                        Fight for equality, but fight the battles that count.

                                                                                    Not happening.. Bond is a male written character and neither will be black. Ian Fleming based his fictional creation on a number of individuals he came across during his time in the Naval Intelligence Division and 30 Assault Unit during the Second World.
                                                                                    So no changes at all to him being female or black man or woman.
                                                                                    Sherlock Homes is a white man and that could never ever be black or female.
                                                                                    Somethings can't be changed. Tom Sawery  and Huckleberry Finn can't be black or female.
                                                                                    Atticus Finch can't be a black man or female, as that would NOT work in the era it set in and would destroy the story.
                                                                                    There are great black male and female fictional characters and non fictional people, who deserve their own film or TV serial.
                                                                                    Obviously Roots could NOT have a white cast to replace the  black slaves. It wouldn't work.

I watch 007 for fun and entertainment but not for a fucking role model... Thus no thanks to the new 007. If you think having a black woman as 007 while not address real issues is progress then you are full of shit.
