I would like to point out to you, that i said i was warming up to the idea of Idris Elba playing Bond. Though not my number one pick at the moment. So either you're just fishing or you missed some of my points.
Well it is, it is about context. Under the right circumstances everything can work, that does not mean that I like the idea, or ever wish to see it play out that way on the Silver Screen.
I choose to edit this frase and remove the your impression that i don't think a man of colour could play Bond.
Under the right context yes, but then it should be successor to Bond, a new character taking over the 007 mantle. But re imagine James as Jane Bond, where they totally reboot the Franchise that i'm not in favor for. There is something ironic when George Lazenby says "this never happened to the other guy" in 'On Her Majesty's Secret Service' (1969), the fact that he acknowledged Sean Connery or hint towards the change in Bond, is perfect. Or Daniel Craig dusting off the old Bond Car, that Connery made famous.
Yes it is true that the Franchise timeline is bit of a mystery, but other then having an odd canon timeline i don't see the idea about doing a Gender Switch. It's dull and beyond lazy. I said it hundred of times, give her a spy role, i'm very much for that. I think she could be a hell of a spy, but doing it with an already existing franchise seems like a bandwagon move.
