"I think we’ve watched the guys do it for the last 40 years. Get out of the way, guys, and put a woman up there. I think it would be exhilarating, it would be exciting," says Brosnan (66).
Nevertheless, Brosnan said he doesn't expect there to be a female Bond as long as Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli continue to produce the films. Brosnan said "I don’t think that’s going to happen with the Broccolis. I don’t think that is going to happen under their watch."
Broccoli told the Guardian: "Bond is male. He’s a male character. He was written as a male and I think he’ll probably stay as a male. And that’s fine. We don’t have to turn male characters into women. Let’s just create more female characters and make the story fit those female characters."
Brosnan stated that the #metoo movement has created a demand for greater equality and the creators of the film will have to address this.
