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

Hell yeah some of the worlds most notorious gangsters are european, sh*t is just not talked about much here.

I think dude would be a great choice, I'm not a big fan of Bond films but I'd check it out. People who have an issue just shouldnt watch. I been reading so much about how Hollywood says don't don't know how to market sh*t to blacks, well let's see how this works.

This argument loosely reminds me of "The Hunger Games", where the character "Rue" was cast as a black girl (as depicted in the og book). Many white people still flipped out, which leads me to believe that some of this criticism is simply low-key racism/white supremacy.

after pierce brosnan stopped being bond, i lost interest for the bond movies all around..
took my ex to watch the first one of the newer bond, didnt like the movie as how i liked the date. sh*tty night, bi*ch got mad cuz i tapped her a.ss when we hugged goodbye..

they made Jim West black, and i remember a friends grandpa kinda flippin out on it.. but he ended up kind of enjoying Will Smith's part in Wild Wild West.

Basically.

Elba would make a great Bond, I could completely envision it, so much so that if he isn't the next Bond I'll be upset.

Significant controversy followed the decision, as it was doubted if the producers had made the right choice. Throughout the entire production period Internet campaigns expressed their dissatisfaction and threatened to boycott the film in protest.[16] The 5'10 (178cm) blond Craig, unlike previous actors, was not considered by the protesters to fit the tall, dark, handsome image of Bond to which viewers had been accustomed. The Daily Mirror ran a front page news story critical of Craig, with the headline, "The Name's Bland – James Bland."

So if people are willing to boycott the film because daniel craig didn't fit the image how the fu*k is idris? fu*king idiots on this site I swear. Can tell the americans chatting all this sh*t are new to the james bond series and know little about the stereotypical british tradition and culture this film is actually about. Typical american answer to try and milk a still very successful franchise for no reason other then a few black people on boxden will it's a good idea. Ask any black british person who knows about this and they'll tell you how stupid you sound.
well...people are always gonna be critical of change... with anything. They protested craig, okay...now skyfall is probably the most anticipated bond film for as long as I can remember. What Elba has in terms of talent and even looks really fits the essence of Bond, and if you wanna deny that because of color in this day and age, aye that's on you...and you can make the same argument for Tom Hardy or Fassbender, any of these men would make a great Bond. It's a given Bond was written for the times, and a mainstream charming Black lead would have never worked back then, but I would like to think the times would be ready and eventually embrace a non-white Bond.

In terms of trying to milk bond...I think we're way pass that starting with some of ridiculous Roger Moore and even some of the pierce and craig films. If you look at craig's version (which I actually like), some of the core attributes have really change, and what you're almost left with is an instinctive/reactive brute. They've been reinventing Bond to change with the times, I think this would be no different.

I agree this would shake things up, but not needlessly. What Elba has potential to do is really make Bond "cool" again..more so than even hardy or fassbender. You can't deny the guy's stage presence and appeal. Fassbender can out act the man in circles, but on a general appeal level, Elba is just too smooth. Connery defined cool in the early days, but what bond has even come close to that?

Final note, you dont' have to watch many bond films to know what the character represents, or understand english for that matter. My pops doesn't know a lick of english but every thanksgiving we're there for Bond. He's a guy everyone wants to be. He gets the girls, saves the world, and looks cool as sh*t doing it. Pure escapism from life for a couple hours...which brings the important point.... sh*t is escapism from everyday life, in a fictional world. It's not written in blood, and whatever generation comes next, they should be able to reinterpret bond to fit with their needs. A more progressive world...a more progressive bond... I'm more excited at the possibility than worried about a group of ppl protesting. two sides to every coin.

You're dumb c*ck shiner.



You're retarded you fu*king pickle kisser.



Since you were able to come with an intelligent response without name calling I'll fu*k with ya.

My thing is this, Ian Fleming based James Bond character on his brother, Peter Fleming? I think is his name. And a couple other people. Including himself.



Just like Shaft was loosely based off his author. How do you think Ernest Tidyman would feel if his character was played by a white dude? How do you think Ian Fleming would feel is James Bond was played by a black dude? Why is one ok and the others not?

I do agree that Bond is less affiliated with his color than Shaft. But they're both fictional characters. If you can change one, why not the other?

Plus as a writer myself. If somebody changed something like that about one of my characters I'd be pissed about it.

Like I said I'm sure Elba could do it. It's just a big jump for me. I've grown up watching old James Bond movies AND old Shaft movies. And FOR ME, seeing a black Bond. Would be like seeing a white Shaft. I shouldve made that point more clearly with my initial comparison.


But whatever. I'm sure it would be good. I love Elba. Would just take some getting used to.

All you guys calling people "stupid" and "retarded" it's usually the stupid people who do that first.
Suck my d!ck from the back while I sh*t up your nose bi*ches.
You seem like an angry little white boy. Lashing out at others because of your ignorance. Don't be. Culture yourself and I'm sure you'll make a better comparison next time.

As a black guy id say no... Not because he woudnt pull of the part, but theres jus some things we need to leave alone, hes one of my favorite actors but we dont need white folks to get mad at every black person jus coz hes Bond... Im sure people in the UK wouldnt be as upset as the people in the US so my opinion would be LET IT GO
