The 007 franchise has always been related to men portraying the handsome and dashing agent, James Bond! While women in the movie have always been the glamor quotient in the film, whether she plays the love interest of Bond or is the femme fatale in the flick. Over the years, women in the Bond films have been nothing but mere barbie-doll pieces that help make the movie look fashionable and balanced. But, in a recent interview, not one but two James Bonds, Pierce Brosnan and Daniel Craig, were heard stating that the franchise should now consider a revolution, by adding a Female Bond in the scripts.
Attending the Toronto International Film Festival over the weekend, Pierce Brosnan as well as Daniel Craig, both endorsed the proposal of having a woman lead the stories of this famous spy franchise. In an interview with Variety, Craig stated that he thinks a woman could of course play the role of the lead character in the film in the future. Daniel made this statement while promoting Agatha Christie based film Knives Out, and also jokingly endorsed Jamie Lee Curtis, his co-star from the film for the role of the Female Bond. While Brosnan spoke to Hollywood Reporter with all his heart and stated, “I think we’ve watched the guys do it for the last 40 years, get out of the way, guys, and put a woman up there.”
Well, that would be really exciting won’t it be? But on a serious note, if Bond movies really do add a female bond in the film, who do you think will bag the lead role? Let’s have a look at all the Hollywood beauties who would rock the role of 007 in the future flicks!
No points for guessing, Scarlett Johansson is one of the most loved Hollywood actresses, especially since she portrayed the character of Black Widow in the Avengers franchise. She has the looks, the attitude and a good hang of the action sequences, making her perfect for the role of a female James Bond!
A versatile actress, Charlize Theron can handle any role with poise and confidence! We have seen her in action in her past movies like Mad Max, Atomic Blonde and Hancock! And we have absolutely no doubt she would play the role of the female spy with perfection, making it look like a walk in the park.
Beautiful as she is, Emily Blunt is a great actress and we have already seen her acting skills in her previous films like The Devil Wears Prada, The Five Year Engagement, MI:6, Sicario and The Edge of Tomorrow. Her role as an FBI agent in Sicario just proves her capability to play the role of Female Bond when the franchise is ready with the script.
Very few actors in Hollywood have such a vast experience in action as Zoe Saldana has! Having worked in films like Avatar, Pirates of the Caribbean, Star Trek, Guardians of the Galaxy and Avengers, Zoe has a better experience with fight scenes than any other actor. And with a sizzling figure, Zoe would definitely look great as the first female 007 agent.
However, there still exists a little controversy of whether Lashana Lynch has already been chosen as the first female Bond by the franchise or not!! Let’s just wait and watch!!
