No Time to Die will be the end of an era for James Bond. With what will surely be a dignified farewell for Daniel Craig, a world of possibilities will open up for the British franchise, which may already be considering renewing the image of Agent 007 and placing an actor of color in the character. Who would be the best option? The options are many, and while the executives decide, John Boyega (Star Wars: The Force Awakens – 92%, Titans of the Pacific: The Uprising – 45%, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker – 61%) reveals their intentions to bring the character to life. What do you think?
Since it was confirmed that Bond 25 it would be the last movie of Daniel Craig In the iconic role of the world’s greatest spy, fans have been speculating on who could become the new face of the franchise. While the character is unlikely to change gender, there are high expectations surrounding the selection of an actor of color.
During an encounter with MTV News, John Boyega responded to the suggestion to become James Bond. The actor assured that he was willing to embody the iconic role, as long as the project was directed by Steve McQueen (12 Years a Slave – 96%, Widows – 91%) and will contribute something never seen before to the franchise (via Comic Book):
[Con] Steve McQueen directing, let’s do it. We could show you something different. We continue to bring that sophistication. You know, James Bond has to be James Bond. But we could do something with that.
Actress Letitia Wright, who plays the role of Shuri in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, seconded the motion that Boyega become the next James Bond during the same interview with MTV News. The actress was asked who would perform a better role, if Daniel Kaluuya (Run away! – 99%, Black Panther – 90%) or the interpreter of Finn in Star Wars, to which he replied the following:

I would say Boyega because I know he would love it, you know? Daniel is a ‘Get the job done and stay behind’ type … You know he likes to be low-key. So that would be too much. He can also play Bond. But I know John Boyega just would.
In statements made a few months ago, Idris Elba, who for years was one of the favorites to be the first James Bond of color, showed all his support for John Boyega. For the actor, it would be a great refreshment for the franchise to portray a spy younger than audiences are used to, and he thinks the Star Wars actor would be excellent for the role (via Microsoft News):
They should give it to John, he would be a great Bond. From the way spies are viewed right now, I think they could afford to be younger and a bit more current. If they’re going to go with someone of color, John would be the man.
Actress Lashana Lynch was recently confirmed to be the new Agent 007 within the movie canon. This means that her character, known as Nomi, took the place of James Bond from Daniel Craig after the events of 007 Specter. This is not to say that she will be the protagonist of the next series of films, since the franchise will most likely reboot after the premiere of No Time To Die.
The position to be the new James Bond remains vacant, but before thinking about the new face of the acclaimed British franchise, it is necessary to give an emotional farewell to Daniel Craig in No Time to Die, a film that will be released on April 2, 2021.
Don’t leave without reading: Confirmed: Lashana Lynch will be the new agent 007
James Bond is one of the roles that many actors would love to play. The British secret agent has become a movie icon throughout his more than 50-year history on the big screen, and it doesn’t look like he’s going to stop anytime soon. Daniel Craig was the last actor with the privilege of playing the famous spy. However, like everything in Hollywood, his time is up and there will always be a studio looking for the next person to make more movies. We also do not believe that the new is going to be the last we see of the franchise, but it does need to be renewed urgently.
Do not miss it: Actors who almost played Batman
Although James Bond is the man everyone wants to be, that is, the epitome of manhood, the next man does not necessarily have to be Bond, but anyone could be Agent 007 without being specifically the same man. In this elite club, which turns out to be a compliment to anyone involved, there have already been names like Sean Connery, Roger Moore and Pierce Brosnan. In recent months, the possibility that it is a black woman or a black man has been mentioned a lot, but with the confirmation that actress Lashana Lynch, who played Maria Rambeau in Captain Marvel – 60% opens up a world of possibilities about how “far” the film franchise could go.
This opportunity will finally bring together other actors that many fans have always dreamed of seeing in the role of agent 007, and not in that of James Bond, but these are our assumptions because we do not know if in the future they will decide to take the name of the character. Certainly, No Time to Die will be the beginning of a new adventure that in addition to being good for the actors will give the public a new look at the spy in the skin of anyone other than a white man because it must also be admitted that it is something boring to see the same thing over and over again.
In view of the new commitment to diversity, where we find great actors who deserve the role, we decided to mention which ones should be considered to play agent 007 in future films:
We recommend you: Actors who have questioned toxic masculinity
He has charisma and great talent. No doubt Matt Bomer, actor of Los Chicos de la Banda – 75% and The Magnificent Seven – 93% would bring something special to the character. It would also be nice to see a gay man play the part. And who knows, maybe he could even make new agent 007 have the same sexual orientation. After all, who said that all spies have to be straight men?
Rarely do you see a diverse actor receive so much support to land a role that has only been played by white men. It is possible that within this list he is the one who most deserves to have the honor, and we have literally seen him play all kinds of imaginable characters, from a charismatic ship captain in Prometheus – 73%, even a gunman in The Dark Tower – 16%. The truth is that it is also rare the occasion in which a film has been given according to its talent, so one like 007 would definitely be the perfect opportunity.
There is no better option than the Welsh actor. Evans He was already one of the actors that the studio executives had in mind to replace Craig, but Evans apparently hesitant to put himself in the character’s shoes. He is, in our eyes, one of the best options for the role, as he has everything you want in a good actor to play Agent 007. The looks, the charisma, the pedigree of the action stars, the love for him. role, the right attitude and also the actor could represent the LGBTQ + community without necessarily the character also doing it.
Henry Golding has had a spectacular couple of years with roles in Locamente Millonarios – 93% and A Little Favor – 82% demonstrating their capabilities as a movie star. This actor of Malay descent has a great screen presence and can have solid chemistry with his co-stars. His ability to fit into different roles, in movies of different genres, so fluidly in the first place, works even more. Combine that with her charisma and she’s a solid choice for 007.
This trans actor is as good a fit as the rest of the names on this list. We got to see the Brit recently in the movie Colette: Liberation and Desire – 89%, where he played Gaston Arman de Caillavet, a French playwright who existed in real life, in the film starring Keira Knightley. Although this was his first film, we are sure that his talent will soon be seen on the big screen again and the role of Agent 007 would not be too bad for him.
She played Aunt Dalma in the second and third Pirates of the Caribbean films and appeared as Moneypenny in recent James Bond films, although her character’s name had not been revealed at first. She already came face to face with Bond, where she defeated the infamous agent with a bullet in 007 Operation Skyfall – 93%. At the end of the film, she is revealed to be Miss Moneypenny, and she reunites with Bond in 007 Specter – 65%, where they work together to take down Blofeld. Despite the character’s mockery, that she is “unfit for field work,” many are eager to see her. Harris take on the role of 007 and we are not opposed to that idea.
Michael B. Jordan
In this world there is always room to see Michael B. Jordan in the role of Agent 007. It is very possible that we are still years away from the next spy movie after the release of Daniel Craig, but the star of Creed: Champion’s Heart – 94% and Black Panther – 90% have the acting knack to do justice to the role, as well as the body of a superhero for all scenes that require the actor to be in good shape. When it comes to leading roles in big-budget movies, he already has enough experience to contribute in this new opportunity.
We have seen her do everything: she was in Mission: Impossible 2 – 57% years ago and over time she has had an enviable career in which we can now see her kicking butt in the Westworld series – 75%. Still, could he go on doing it all as Agent 007: the action, a martini, win over the girl? And get into all the machinations where we’d only seen Bond. Also, just imagining her chatting with M, lamenting all the ridiculous men who believe themselves a great deal for doing the same job would be great.
The British actor of Pakistani descent is one of the best today. It is a chameleon, in the sense that it can play any role. He proved he could play a villain in Venom – 35%, for example. Did action in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story – 85%, and their new projects are so different from each other and promising at the same time. If you can do everything, and also look good in a suit, why not play 007?
This martial arts movie star could use the 007 outfit to wear. Yen He knows what it is to lead a project and he is good at acting, but he is also a Chinese actor who would physically fit the role well if he had the opportunity who could at the same time contribute something totally new to the long-lived film franchise. In recent years he gained international recognition for his roles in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, where he appeared in the role of Chirrut Imwe and xXx: Reactivated – 44%.

Toxic masculinity is as staple in Hollywood as happy endings, or as repeated as a reboot. Toxic male characters are everywhere; on the big screen you can find them from the secondary characters, to the hero of the movie or the boyfriend who is the typical bad boy. Perhaps they are in more places than we remember, and due to the abundance of toxic male characters, it can be difficult for any of them to stand out. And yet, there are some that are too horrible to ignore.
Do not miss it: The male Mary Sue no one complains about
For a male character to be toxic, he must possess some characteristics. Toxic people are those people in your life who make you depressed. Some toxic people infect you with hatred or negativity, others look down on you and manipulate you to make you feel less. Toxic men are an epidemic both in the real world and in movies. These male characters are not only the protagonists of his films, but they are also usually the characters with whom the audience should empathize the most. Therefore, these films force audiences to find common ground with toxic men, whether we like it or not. Toxic men, men who bring darkness, cruelty, and negativity into the lives of those who meet them, should definitely be forced to walk around with giant billboards on their foreheads.
But since it doesn’t look like it’s going to happen anytime soon, the best we can do right now is to identify some of the toxic men you may find on the big screen. On this list, the toxic male characters are those that we mostly see in Hollywood movies being controlling, mean, and abusive, to give a few examples. Toxic people aren’t necessarily toxic on purpose, and neither are they all villains with a thirst for revenge or a strange penchant for smothering their co-workers in a sci-fi movie. To be clear, these are toxic male movie leads, not toxic male actors. Behind-the-scenes behavior is not about here, but about all kinds of acts that can provoke anxiety and nightmares that, thankfully, could teach others what kind of people to avoid in the future.
Toxic male characters in film there are too many, but like these, none of them represent as well (though not actually positive) toxic masculinity on the big screen:
We recommend you: Actors who have questioned toxic masculinity
Perhaps toxic is not a strong enough word to describe a serial killer. Patrick Bateman’s (Christian Bale) Kind of Nasty in American Psycho – 67% are rooted in a toxic idea of masculinity: despite being wealthy and successful, they are deeply insecure and feel the need to rape, murder and eat their victims to reassert their dominance. Additionally, Bateman has a completely toxic fixation on status. He is locked in a perpetual contest of measuring who has it bigger with his colleagues, with saying that he takes it to another level until he starts comparing business cards.
James Bond, more than a character is an idea, and obsolete. He is the ideal man of a bygone era: he is able to sleep with a variety of women effortlessly, he kills without remorse, and he keeps his feelings, when he has them, locked away in a British way. He is everything men are told they should want to be: promiscuous, callous, and violent. It doesn’t hurt to remember your “tradition” as a misogynist.
Four teenagers try to cover up the fact that they bumped into a man who was apparently killed in the process after a night of celebration where they got drunk. Actually, who is seen drinking in I Know What They Did Last Summer – 36% are Barry (Ryan Phillippe), a young man who only stops nagging his girlfriend when he yells at someone else. Barry’s over-enthusiasm for drinking distracts the driver and causes the accident, and it is he, too, who convinces them to push the man’s body into the ocean instead of informing the police, culminating in his vengeful return.
Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson in Twilight – 48%) is a 100-year-old man dating a teenage girl. He stalks Bella and watches her while she sleeps without her knowledge or consent. He also repeatedly ignores Bella’s wishes, controls her social life ensuring that he does it to “protect” her, and physically harms Bella when they finally have sex. Bella has all the personality of a sheet of paper, but she still deserves better than that.
Joker / Arthur Fleck
In Joker – 91%, we see how Arthur Fleck (Joaquin Phoenix) had an abusive childhood and while much of the movie points to his mother as the turning point for Arthur to become the Joker, toxic masculinity is the cause. Arthur is an introvert who seeks approval in his comedy career and works as a clown on the streets and in children’s hospitals to earn money and take care of his mother. However, it doesn’t help that her life is full of encounters with toxic men, the common denominator being that they all resort to foul language and violence to assert their power over Arthur, who is far from aggressive.
No one is surprised that the Jedi Order is dominated by men and all the roles that have the most dialogue in the two Star Wars trilogies are men. These popular characters promote unhealthy and stoic ideas about masculinity. Jedi are supposed to be honorable monks with great abilities, but their lack of sympathy for their apprentices is part of the problem. Then we see a young Anakin Skywalker (Hayden Christensen) being rejected for being “too emotional”, that is, a child who cares about his enslaved mother and who lives in a state of anguish for her well-being. He is mocked and rejected because he is not emotionally detached. We already know how his story ended by continuing to suppress his feelings, since because of those beliefs he became a toxic man.
Compared to some of the characters on this list, Snape might seem like an innocent man, but the excuse that he did it all for love is what makes him so toxic. He is an interesting character who unfortunately becomes increasingly disagreeable with Harry and all the other children as the movies go by during their years at Hogwarts. The fact that Lily did not want him did not entitle him to join Voldemort’s followers. This is an example of how unrequited love can bring out toxic masculinity.
His introduction shows us a Han Solo (Harrison Ford) capable of doing everything he sets his mind to, but the moment Luke questions his abilities he becomes aggressive. One of Han’s first actions in Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope – 93% is solving a problem by killing another being instead of reaching an agreement, and that shows that they do not know how to interact with other men in a non-violent way. In Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back – 94%, toxic masculinity continues, especially in their interactions with Leia. It could easily be seen as too aggressive; He physically intimidates her, and instead of talking about his true feelings, he forces the kiss scene to happen.
On A Streetcar Named Desire – 98%, Stanley is a drunken domestic abuser, toxic to the point of taking the life of his wife, Stella, and those around her. In the history of cinema there is no shortage of toxic male protagonists, but few compare to the one played by Marlon Brando who also surrounded himself with a history full of controversy for scenes that even made it a forbidden film.

Sean Connery passed away this Saturday ats 90 years, the legendary actor who is considered the best James Bond ever and that he was not unaware of football, since there was a day when floor the Camp Nou y surrendered to Barcelona and to the Blaugrana stadium.
