Would still like to see Fassbender as him tho at some point but Elba would be cool too since he's been good in everything I've seen him in


That dude gives off the classic villain vibe though

How is that an adequate comparison? You sound like an idiot.

Also; Really? Those are the only prominent black portrayed characters you people can think of?

- Shaft
- Blade
- Anton Jackson (from Undercover Brother)


anyway,

The difference is, FOR THE 30TH TIME IN THIS THREAD

Those are all characters who are written as innately black.

James Bond is more of an English spy, than a "White" spy. Thats the most important aspect.

Especially because, it can be interpreted that James Bond is a code name (A secret agent wouldn't be using his government name) and 007 is an agent status within the MI6 spy agency.

Thus why there are so many different James Bond's over the years. Why woundn't a black agent be able to acquire 007 status?

I like Elba. But Idk. I couldn't see it. Some things shouldn't be changed. James Bond should always be a white British dude. Shaft should always be a big bad black dude.

Imagine them keeping the Mission Impossible franchise going and eventually Tom Cruise stops playing Ethan Hunt but somebody else picks up where Cruise left off and it's Anthony Mackie or some sh*t.

Too big of a leap for me. It further separates reality from the movie. And I like to be into movie. I feel like that big of a change would take me out of it. I don't doubt Elba could do it and do it well. Idk.

fu*k it. I ain't mad. James Bond will always be my sh*t.

That should be the only thing that matters...

Sounding like you actually are caught up in the racial aspect of it.

I think a black bond would be awesome. Idris would be perfect for that role. I don't know if he'd be clean shaven though which is a pillar of the Bond character. Never seen him be clean shaven so IDK how that would fair as part of the look goes. But based on talent, I think he would be excellent.

This definitely needs to happen. Idris Elba would k!ll it as James Bond. Anyone watch Luther? He's phenomenal in that, just like he was in The Wire.

Wrong, wrong, wrong.

James Bond is a white character (and his actual name is james bond). Ian fleming based the character on many people, all of whom were white.

That's stupid. Nothing racist about it either. That's like having a white dude play Shaft. I would watch but I'd respect the 007 franchise a little less for giving in to the weight of social racial bull sh*t.
Dumb people...

James Bond doesn't have to be anything other than British. Nobody thinks James Bond has to be white. Just idiots like you.

James Bond is a white character (and his actual name is james bond). Ian fleming based the character on many people, all of whom were white.

bond was written as a "white" male, but besides cosmetic attributes, his core remain "english gentleman" and a "lethal spy"... a jump to a black lead wouldn't be as big as something like shaft whose core is very pro-black....

ELba would make an awesome bond...in the vien of connery and craig, he has the presence and potential for violence, with a nice balance of charm, almost to the extent of pierce and connery.

I would say the core outweighs the cosmetics, as the character was written for its times. In todays world, a black bond could definitely work, and Elba would be perfect.
