The franchise is super popular and is one of the greatest franchises in cinematic history.
Henry Cavill has been open about how the role of James Bond:
“I would love to do it, of course; I think Bond would be a really fun role. It’s British; it’s cool. I think that now that I have my Mission: Impossible badge we can do real stunts and really amp it up as well. It would be fun for me to actually take what I’ve learnt on Mission: Impossible and carry it through to a movie like Bond and that if they were to ask I would say ‘yes.’”
Barbara Broccoli has expressed her views on having a woman play Bond:
“Bond is male. He’s a male character. He was written as a male, and I think he’ll probably stay as a male. And that’s fine,” she had said.
“We don’t have to turn male characters into women. Let’s just create more female characters and make the story fit those female characters.”
She had also expressed her views on the controversial debate about this franchise:
“Look at the way the world has changed. And I think Bond has come through and transformed with the times. I’ve tried to do my part, and I think particularly with the Daniel Craig films, they’ve become much more current in terms of the way women are viewed.”
