    Ignoring the canon wouldn't do either, as that would defeat the whole point and object. Re-writing the canon, re-writing history itself is what it's all about.

    Well, yes, but they haven't taken him back to being a ruthless sex criminal who doesn't hesitate to torture women to achieve his goals, have they?

    Bond hasn't been Bond since Connery, so, pfff.

    He could easily be a she. Or Afro-Caribbean, or Anglo-Indian. It makes no difference now.
    Well in that case I think red should play him. At least he's not common.

    red should play him as a white trans woman who identifies as a black lesbian.

    He's quite rapey in the books, inasmuch as he doesn't really take no for an answer, but continues to press his suit until swooning and compliance occurs.

    Well yes. We do seem to have decided to go a bit Year Zero on western civilisation don't we? I blame that stinking old fraud Gandhi.

    Oh, well. We had a good run, I suppose.

    This is getting a kicking critically but I do quite want to see The Meg - Jason Statham v a prehistoric shark

    If Bond can be 116 then why not explore earlier eras?

    A Napoleonic Bond, perhaps, in From Prussia with Love.
