Are we ready for a gay James Bond scene?
The revolution will not be televised. It will be in cinemas. And if Daniel Craig has anything to say about it, it will be gay. The new James Bond is lobbying to refresh the decades-old franchise by including a love scene involving Bond and another dude in the follow-up to Casino Royale. Craig is even willing to go full frontal, if need be. “Why not?” he says. “I think in this day and age, fans would have accepted it.” Whether the companies whose product placements litter the screen would enjoy it might be another matter. Hell, I think it’s a good idea regardless. Bond movies have gotten so formulaic and corny that anything that breaks the monotony is welcome. However, I shudder to think of what future Bond boys will be named, considering the gems they came up with for the women.
