Topic: 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

Yes like that.

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.. ajb007/takecover

"Any of the opposition around..?"

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. . .

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

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.

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

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.
