    never got the nerd passion for retconning frequently rebooted serieses into a single grand narrative as though there were any planning or intention for such from the series creators. Ian Fleming's James Bond is a single person and the movie franchise regularly updated the proceedings with different actors for no reasons other than financial ones.

    Honestly the sorts of geography changes we see in Hyrule need a couple million years at minimum dawg. Link and Zelda would be the equivalent of reincarnating Jesus if their mythos could persist that long.

    The judgments being made already just at the news that Bond is gonna have a woman reject him, Sweet Christmas.

    If you all would have a problem with Bond retiring at the end of Spectre then coming in at the start of this movie and there being another MI6 agent who has taken his place because you don't think it makes sense for agent designations like 007 to be passed on, that's one thing.

    But if you are specifically upset that the movie went "full PC" because said replacement agent is a black woman, and would not be upset had the replacement 007 been another white male, then you might want to consider why inclusion bothers you. Like this isn't a Ghost Busters with James Bond being rebooted as a black female. This is MI6 replacing an agent with another agent, which you know can happen.

    (Also we saw that M was replaced and her code designation was inherited, so there is grounds for agent designations being passed on)

    it's p silly to get so bent out of shape not having seen a single second of footage or having any idea what the plot is going to be but guys will be dudes

    i'm actually stoked looking into it, didn't realize Phoebe Waller-Bridge was writing and Fukunaga directing. that's a ton of talent Killing Eve is the best spycaper on TV and True Detective Season 1 was directed about as good as anything has ever been directed.

    The concept is fine, replacing Bond since he retired is A-okay by me, its an interesting spin on the franchise, I mean, James Bond working together with a NEW 007 unit since he retired, one presumably as skilled as he to earn the 007 title? Count me in, IDC their skin tone or genitals, it seems like an interesting concept. What I would have a problem with - the movie putting aside that wonderful concept in favor of "Getting Woke".

    As it stands right now theres 0 to go on for me to make a judgment or get bent out of shape, so I'm not gunna. I'm really hoping exploring the dynamics between Old and New 007 and making a fun movie is their top priority...

    I kinda had hoped it would go to Idris Elba. I don't care if it's female but I wanted a Bond movie. Make this his retirement or passing the torch movie. It really does feel more like pandering and less like legitimate desire to tell a good story.

    I'm cautious, but I don't know about giving it a chance until I see some footage.

    Charlize recently did a female Bond impersonation and it worked great, but she also played a badass. Screwing chicks, dudes, and kicking ass. That's all people want out of this shit. The fact the words #MeToo were used as part of the sales pitch by the director of this thing already tells you what you need to know about the level of badass you can expect from this coming character.

    What is it with gamers being in love with the alt-right and white supremacy? Like all the games you play have very heavy anti-fascism and is against all the things the alt-right and anti-PC crowd stands for lol.

    I can't wait to see the new black woman 007 seduce Chris Hemsworth and she pegs him.
