I'd love to have a female Bond counter part in the next movie.

Kinda like Paula in Thunderball.
Bond and her had great chemistry.
So maybe in the first half of the film, Bond, can work along side a female agent. Have great chemistry and witty scenes together. Then she can die or leave or whatever when the Bond Girl shows up, or have her be the Bond Girl.

Vesper was a great character to Bond, but she wasn't a field agent.
Jinx was ehh.

    Jinx too, albeit a very bad one

    Edit: Oh I see you mentioned Jinx

    She was hardly Bond's counterpart. Simply being another agent doesn't make anyone Bond's counterpart. Paula wasn't either. Like Rosie Carver, Goodnight and Agent Fields, she's a low-level agent without anywhere close to Bond's skills. Camille is the most recent female Bond counterpart, but she's not a Bond girl. Aki, Kissy, Anya Amasova and Holly Goodhead are classic Bond girls who were also Bond's counterpart. Pam Bouvier, Wai Lin and Jinx are others I'd put in the same category.

    I would like to see Bond work with one of the other 00-agents, perhaps a woman, for parts of a movie.

    Bond's equal never really does it for me. E.g Wai Lin and Jinx. I prefer Bond to be the only one wearing the trousers. These are not partner movies.

    I would like to see another 00 agent make an appearance in the next film but would prefer it to be a man I'm afraid. Call me a sexist mysiogynist dinosaur.. {:)

    I kept it in mind that Bond doesn't need a partner.
    Would just be nice to see him working along side another agent for a bit of the film. Not heavily focused though.

    Don't we get the same song with every new Bond film? "She's not just another Bond girl--she's Bond's equal!" Zzzzzz. . .

    I'm really tried of actresses saying "What is new in this movie is that my character is more of Bond's equality." They seem to say it for every movie. Wait Lin, agent XXX and some others might be said to be that, but I prefer The Bond Girls who are complex and interesting, no matter if they can fire a gun or not.
    But what we haven't seen (other than the PTS OF GE) is Bond spending time with an other 00-agent.
    The agent could be female, but he/she shouldn't get too much screentime. It's a James Bond movie not a 00-branch movie.

    Doesn't bother me a bit. Bond is certainly a strong enough character to work along side a female counterpart for a while, as long as it's clear that Bond is the main focus of the film. I think Jinx is too much (as well as being a poorly written and badly acted character), while Wai Lin strikes me as being just right.

  • canoe2canoe2 Posts: 1,568MI6 Agent
    I agree with Blackleiter. If introducing a female agent (any agent, actually) is done in the service of a good story, then I'd have no problem with it. Throughout the films Bond has worked, to varying degrees, with many other spies, male and female. When done right it's a good dynamic.

    I can already see the next stage of wussyfication of Bond coming in which a woman with supposedly equal abilities will appear just to spread feminist propaganda that women were equal which they are not !
  • Number24Number24 NorwayPosts: 17,619MI6 Agent
    Wussification? Please explain. How is Craig's Bond less masculine and though than say RM or Brosnan?

    Well that's certainly a point of view. You gonna be okay?
  • Number24Number24 NorwayPosts: 17,619MI6 Agent
    Oh, you mean like agent XXX in TSWLM? :v
    Or Wai Lin in TND, or Pam inn LTK?

    If there was a PTS scene with Bond and another 00 (woman) on a mission to assassinate someone, similar to the beginning of MI-1 would be great.

    Best,

    Craig definitely needs "The Spy Who Loved Me" treatment, meaning a Bond girl that is working for some agency or intelligence of a foreign country.

    Vesper, Camille, Madeleine. It's a travesty SF's main Bond girl is M. Mooooommmmmmyyy!

    Overall the weakest ever era Bond girl wise. Even Lazenby beats four Craig films with only one.

  • VesperMelogranoVesperMelograno The SouthPosts: 901MI6 Agent
    I kind of am hoping for the opposite. I feel like much of DC movies have revolved around love, whether it be familial or sexual. I would like the focus to shift from interpersonal relationships and be more action driven.

    QOS was exactly that. There was one brief sexual relationship, but no love and no family. It was all about the action.

    I've been wanting to see Bond team up with another double-oh for a long time. Would be even better if that double-oh were a woman.

    I regard it as the major misstep of the DC era (with SP hot on its heels) but undeniably it has a strong fanbase here so you are not entirely alone. Each and every entry has its advocates and it's detractors, so nobody is ever in a gang of one here (consensus would be dull)

    I 100% agree. Normally I can only talk about Bond with my Dad and Husband. Both are rather dull to banter with. An excerpt with my Dad:
    Vesper: "So Dad what did you think of CR?"
    Pops Vesper: "It was a two hour card game."

    I think I've mentioned I was in a Norwegian James Bond fan forum for a few months before I joined AJB. The moderator in the Norwegian site thought that everything and everyone involved with Bond is fantastic and beyond critics. Everyone in the forum should think so.

    It was unbelievably dull.

    No b*tching about slitting ones rists?
    No whining about Craig being too old and thinking that SPECTRE sucked?

    Even if most of you know where I stand, it must've been hell there :v :v.
    a reasonable rate of return

    It was supposed to be "beyond critisism". Darn autocorrect!
    Well, the moderator seemed to feel it would as ok to critizise some things done after 2006, so he may be a Norwegian relative of BJB006.
