Who Should Be The Next James Bond? We Have Some V. Important Thoughts

 
Bond. Jane Bond.

Bond. Jane Bond.

Chris Hemsworth has some ideas on who the next movie should star, too.

Earlier this week, there was quite the hubbub amongst a certain strain of menfolk surrounding Doctor Who getting cast as a woman for the first time.

Same goes for last year with Ghostbusters getting remade with an all-female cast. Or when they freaked out because a Star Wars movie had a female lead. Or when women got the right to vote.

But I digress. During the outcry over the how unrealistic it is that a reincarnating alien doctor could possibly come back as a woman, some of these tender male souls showed their hand: Take Doctor Who, harpies, but don’t you dare touch James Bond! 

Funny you should bring that up! For a good while now, the masses have been demanding Idris Elba take the vacated spot of Daniel Craig as the next 007.

Totally here for that if it happens, though in light of those hopes almost certainly being dashed, we’re ready to explore some additional options. 

And it just so happens Chris Hemsworth is as well. In a recent W Magazine piece floating the idea of Charlize Theron as the next James Bond, Hemsworth vehemently concurred:

“She embodies every sort of ounce of strength and nobility and dignity and integrity that that character should have. She's smart as hell. She's physically able. Watching her in those fight scenes, doing it in high heels, by the way, and an eight-foot long gown was even more impressive."

With Atomic Blonde about to hit theaters, proof that she’s pretty much perfect for the part is ample. 

But the internet’s got some other ideas as well. In the wake of the Doctor Who casting, the people have come a’clamoring for Gillian Anderson—she of the impeccable X Files performances.

Down for any of the above, obviously, but if I’m being honest, here’s my dark horse:

She’s already brilliantly taken up a historically male role in her portrayal of Watson on Elementary, plus she was in Charlie’s Angels and Kill Bill.

Lady knows how to throw a punch. And what is 007 really but an Angel with a more pronounced nicotine addiction and commitment issues?

Either way, the options are ample. Commence Jane Bond casting speculations! Do not relent until this important item on the Feminist Takeover Agenda has been ticked off the list.
