No Time to Die

In conversation with Variety, producer Barbarba Broccoli doubled down on her previous statement James Bond will always be played by a male.

He can be of any color, but he is male. I believe we should be creating new characters for women - strong female characters. I’m not particularly interested in taking a male character and having a woman play it. I think women are far more interesting than that.

Luckily, he has his two royal advisors to back him up—Vulko, the scholar, and Mera, the water controlling warrior-princess. Between dealing with unscrupulous surface dwellers, elder evils from beyond time and his own half-brother who wants to overthrow him, Aquaman is going to have to rise to the challenge and prove to his subjects, and to himself, that he’s the right man for the trident.” No word yet on whether the films’ stars will voice the characters.
