Rumours have been circulating in the last few days surrounding the next bond film, currently known only as ‘Bond 22′. Speculation suggests that the upcoming flick will include a homosexual relationship between Bond and the secret agent Felix Leiter, played by Jeffrey Wright. An insider involved with the production of the film was quoted as saying:
“Bond will always be a hit with the ladies. But Casino Royale star Daniel Craig has a massive gay fan-base and that to put it quite simply shouldn’t be ignored.”
Personally, I’ll believe it when I see it. I am all for seeing new homosexual characters, but James Bond has been straight for the last 43 years. Why go gay now? Who knows though, maybe the franchise is ready for a shake up?
