No! James Bond is about women, cool gadgets, and action. Thats what I expect with a 007 movie, not a gay scene.
Brokeback Bond....hopefully NOT coming anytime soon.

Wow, that is a bit homophobic... I would agree with you that this may not be the James Bond we know... but this is the 21st century and its no longer Sean Connery and 1967. Its 2006 if Daniel Craig wants to have a gay tryst, all the power to him.

Rediculous! He makes it sound as if we all hop in and out of bed with different sexes now. James Bond is straight, women are a big part of the fantasy, they shouldn't be ridded for men!

Not really. I can see what Futurecaptain is getting at. Asking Bond to be gay for a bit is like asking Elton John to date women. It's just not part of who he is and what he's known for.

Rubbish!
James Bond is, as others have said, about women and gadgets.
If you want a gay tryst go see Bareback Mountain or whatever it's title is.
Homosexuality should NOT be made compulsory.

Im not saying it has to be and neither is Craig. Just because he WANTS to do the scene does not make it compulsory.

Personally, I think it would ruin the movie, I have nothing against homosexuals, it's just not who Bond is. I would bet that the ratings for that movie would plummet, not because people are homophobic, but because they will have strayed so far off path from what Bond was traditionally, there's no guarantee that I'd see it. It looks like a PC move to me.

Bond was best when it was simple, like the Sean Connery years, and finally Casino Royale went back to that format, not too many gadgets, just good acting and an entertaining plot. I think it's suicide for the Bond image, but who knows, maybe I'm the only one that thinks that.

Dude, I think you should cool out. Just because homosexuality is depicted in a James Bond movie doesn't make it "compulsory." There's a lot of murder in such films too, and the same thing applies

That said, it does seem to me that homosexuality is not part of the character James Bond. I did find it interesting, though, how the recent Casino Royale set up something of a backplot to explain why Bond is such a misogynist. I guess they figured the "well, it's from the 60s" excuse wasn't convincing anymore?  Smile

Oh, crap. Here I was, happy to have the first Bond actor who could really be faithful to the Ian Fleming vision, and he goes and says something like this.

If you want gay scenes, go see Brokeback Mountain. I have no interest in seeing a gay Bond, and I'm sure EON Productions knows that they will kill the franchise if they try it. I think they will tell Craig to shut up and never mention the idea again, or he's fired.

This would be totally out of character for James Bond. I'm not a big fan of the movies, having seen only a few, but it would really "destroy" the James Bond character.

And that isn't said to be homophobic, but it is just too out of character for James Bond. It would be like having Rosanne Barr from Rosanne getting a PhD one episode.

And the nude scene is weird too. I think all or almost all James Bond movies are rated PG-13 and a nude scene would make it R.

James Bond is a series of movies very well developed. It would be best to stay with the status quo. If it hasn't needed these elements before, why now?

Oh it would add a bit of intrigue to James Bond. Why stereotype him? He'd still have his straight scenes, so this would only add to the mystery of the man.

This is the 21st century and, lets face it, bisexuals are cool. They're much more interesting that us boring gays and straights.

Daniel Craig has just zoomed to the top of my favourite James Bond list.

I'll ask for Brosnan back if this happens... hell, even for Timothy Dalton! Other people's love life is, unless for example we're on a.net joking about it, nothing that interests me so I don't care who's straight, gay or bi. But James Bond, double-oh (now I know where that came from) seven, in a gay scene? That would be more than just a mistake - it would ruin the film.

Asking Bond to be gay for a bit is like asking Elton John to date women. It's just not part of who he is and what he's known for.

IIRC, Elton was once married to a WOMAN.

Everyone's got their panties in a bunch without having the slightest clue what the context of the scene would be... did anyone give any thought to the possibility that the context might be something along the lines of: As the world's ultimate superspy with every "trick" up his sleeve and willing to do anything for the crown, this heterosexual hunk even goes so far as to seduce a gay bad guy to get what he wants... or something like that?

Anyhoo... I think it's be interesting to see.

It has nothing to do with homophobia, and everything to do with ruining a franchise that are cinematic classics. Womanizing is part of the Bond persona, and that shouldn't be cast aside for the sake of political correctness. It makes Bond Bond.

If he wants to do a gay scene, he should do it on his own time or in another movie.

A "Bond boy" would absolutely destroy the Bond persona.
