Daniel Craig is proving being James Bond isn't all about flashy cars and attractive women, as the actor was covered in blood while shooting the latest installment of the spy franchise. "He was written as a male, and I think he'll probably stay as a male", Broccoli told the Guardian in October.

But 54-year-old Piers is furious over the prospect, slamming the idea at every moment possible and branding it a "pathetic, virtue signalling nonsense".

Pierce has a "deep pride" about having played James Bond.

"There is a pivotal scene at the start of the film where M says 'Come in 007, ' and in walks Lashana who is black, attractive and a woman", a Bond insider previously claimed.

Earlier this year, Idris Elba made more positive noises regarding a potential female, or black Bond. Long ago, many voices are looking for agent witness 007 to pass a woman to her next stage.

However, not everyone shares the opinion of former James Bond. Things have moved on and presumably our secret service is an equal ops employer. If you see any 007 movies, women always play their love interest and femme fatal instead of them playing any meaty role. Get out of the way, guys, and put a woman there.

"He's a male character". However when asked who he thinks ought to be Craig's successor, amidst rumours that Lashana Lynch could take over after the upcoming No time at all to Die instalment, Brosnan insisted it's time for a female actress to take on the part.

'I think it would be exhilarating, it would be exciting'.

While Brosnan told The Hollywood Reporter the franchise would need to change its approach to female characters because "the #MeToo movement has been relevant and significant and well needed in our society", he also praised the directing talent of Roman Polanski and Woody Allen, both of whom have been accused of sexually assaulting minors.
