wow...i literally was thinking about the next bond being black on my way to work this morning and he was the 1st actor to come to mind

but nah they made a big deal here in the UK about daniel craig being blond when casino royale came out so imagine if they try and pull this sh*t

and its not like 007 is a different PERSON every few movies...its always JAMES BOND so how can you all of a sudden make him black on some green lantern sh*t

We got a black Nick Fury.......we can have a black James Bond.
thats different...comic books always do different dimensions and sh*t...nick fury is black when the avengers are called the ultimates which is what the movies are loosly based on...otherwise he is white

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?
your wrong my friend...and i shouldn't even have to explain why

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.
you are retarded. 007 is just an Agent while Shaft IS a Black Man.

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.
I agree with what your saying, but it wouldn't work.
Like it or not, the whole "english gentlemen" stereotype is white. This is a character based on traditional agent pre WWII, always been a white character. As said, people didn't think it was right daniel craig being bond because he was blond, a black bond is never happening because it doesn't need to happen. It would almost be doing it for the sake of it. I think he would do an amazing job acting bond, but so would lots of other white actors who can fit the role a hell of a lot better.

A lot of people posting in this thread claiming a lot of bullsh*t are americans who don't know sh*t about the actual history of bond and probably only watched the past few films

Naw not really

Shaft whole thing is he is a black, everything is built around that


James Bond is less to do with his color, and more to do with him being intelligent, smooth individual with style and class

James Bond movie franchise is nothing like the books it was based on they changed just about everything to do with Bond, so having a black guy play Bond is not really shocking, having Roger Moore play bond is more shocking since Bond was never a cheeky comedian only obsessed with women

To play bond you have to be cool, and have the accent and Idris fits the bill

Bond updates with the times, the franchise keeps moving, black bond will be cool as long as the right actor is selected, either way Idris should get a part in Bond, even if he isnt playing Bond, the guy just has that aurora about him

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
Fassbender would also be perfect

They both are perfect for the role

Maybe they can have Idris and have a spinoff character

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.

We might have a problem

Two things I need dumbfu*ks in this thread to stop doing.

1. Stop mentioning Shaft being play by anyone other than a Black Man because Shaft IS a Black Character.

2. Stopping being weirded out by anyone of any Race, Color, or Creed playing Bond because Bond is merely a Double 0 Agent. The Character is of no Specific Race.

*Tangent*
I hope you idiots know that Cleopatra is NOT White eventhough she was played by White women in White films.

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.
James Bond is named after an American bird watcher.

And for the most part, his eccentricities are based on Flemming himself.


Im not sure who these other people you speak of are.


Also, He's a fictional character. He can be anything.


See this is what I was talking about. It's just gonna be narrow minded white Americans getting heated about this.


Just look at the new Spiderman

Great actor but for Bond? No.... fu*k no. Can you imagine him walking up to a bartender like "A 40 of malt liquor. Shaken. Not stirred."

Doesn't have the same ring to it.
