The Next James Bond Won’t Be a Woman

The Next James Bond Won't Be a Woman

We’re finding out a bit more information about the future of James Bond and who may be cast in the future.

“He can be of any color, but he is male,” Barbara Broccoli, who oversees the franchise, told Variety. “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.”

It looks like this woman, who was rumored to be the next James Bond, won’t actually get the role.

Daniel Craig‘s last 007 film, No Time to Die, will hit theaters in April. At some point in the future, we’ll find out who the next Bond is.

Here are the 10 actors who are considered frontrunners for the next Bond.
