The current James Bond Daniel Craig is on his way out of the James Bond franchise and the time has come to crown a new 007.

While some think actors like Tom Hiddleston (Loki from Avengers), Idris Elba, and Tom Hardy(Max from Mad Max: Fury Road) will be great for the role, others are thinking, why not make James Bond a Jane Bond?

Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke who plays Mother of Dragons Khaleesi Daenerys Targaryen has added her name to the lady-Bond mix.

She recently told The Daily Star, “I have a lot of unrealized dreams, I would love to play Jane Bond. My ultimate leading man would be Leonardo DiCaprio. No doubt about it.”

This pairing isn’t likely to happen (because of patriarchy) though it should be noted that former Bond director Sam Mendes said the new casting choice “will not be what you expect”.

BellaNaijarians, what do you think? Will you be open to a female James Bond – Jane Bond?

    It’s a no no from me. But on a second thought, Angelina Jolie would have been perfect for that ‘Jane bond’ part.

    We would like to say how it plays out. But from what Angelina Jolie did in tomb raider and this other movie chiwetel acted with her were she played a Russian spy turned saboteur I think she would make a good Jane bond.

    Una don come again!!! the author wrote a novel about a secret agent doing covert operations who is British, male , straight,white, and unattached.James bond is not open to affirmative action,feminism, political correctness, or sentiments.Therefore James bond CANT be Hispanic,a woman, gay, Nigerian,or happily married with 3 children! QED

    I don’t understand the reference to patriarchy in the closing statement of this article. It’s a movie franchise based on well-read books. Ian Flemming wrote about a male, white spy so what has patriarchy got to do with producers trying to maintain their affiliation to the original story series?

    That’s akin to someone wanting to make a movie about Flora Nwapa’s “Efuru” and suggesting that a man (maybe even a white man) should play the titular part. We can have a different spy franchise with a female lead, it doesn’t have to be James Bond – it can be created as the Bond movies were and called something else.

    Let the Bond series be what it’s been built into & let anyone looking to develop something similar with a woman as the titular character, feel free to do that. Haba? Patriarchy? On top Bond being left as male? Biko, that sort of accusation is unecessary.
