    So basically you're reducing Idris Elba to just a black guy that deserves a role? You're being a piece of shit and you don't even realize it.

    To all the assholes in this thread making it about race or SJW shit... your shitty association patterns don't apply 100% of the time. You still have to think sometimes.

    Idris Elba is "too street" to play James Bond. I think Bond should be "English-English".

    I think Elba would be a good choice for James Bond, he's a solid actor.

    It's called acting. It's not like he's not capable of playing the "gentleman" role. He already has the British accent.

    Now that I think of it, I think I'm more interested in seeing Colin Firth as the new Bond after seeing Kingsman.

    That's Elba too, but we're not sure whether it's gonna be THE BBC'S SHAFT or SHAFT'S BBC.

    I thought Tom Hiddleston was selected as the next Bond.

    Somebody different would be a nice change. Craig seems bored with the role and going through the motions. He never seems like he has any charisma or fun being James Bond. Always stone faced and unamused from scene to scene.

    Loki has made Hiddleston into a damn superstar even though Loki was meh overall. He was okay in Thor, decent in The Avengers and not interesting in any other appearance.

    No, James Bond is white.

    Elba is both black, and a shit actor who plays one role "man playing Idris Elba".

    It should be Nicholas Hoult.

    He's the only vaguely interesting Marvel bad guy so far.

    I preferred Kaecillius in Doctor Strange. I like his character and it's complexity. I also like how they developed his character THROUGH the development of Strange and Mordo's character.

    Loki's development in Thor was that he was the jealous stepchild, desperately seeking daddy's approval.

    Actually, good call - he was a decent villain, if a bit of an underuse of a wonderful actor. Mikkelsen, I mean.

    Loki's just a good character - likeable, untrustworthy sleazebag.

    He's too old. He'll be 45 years old in Sept which means he'll be 46 approaching 47 by the time they start filming at the earliest. Daniel Craig was 37 when he first started filming and Connery was 32.

    Are we so desperate for a new James Bond that we are thinking about casting a guy in his late 40s? The whole purpose is to get a few films out of who ever you are casting and it take a long time to film those movies. A trilogy is close to 10 years easily these days. They should give the series a rest for a while and start up with some new blood.

    This guy gets it. Cast someone in their late 20s, early 30s so by the time he makes his 3rd or 4th movie, he doesn't need an assistant to carry his piss bag around for him.

    Oh, I knew making Bond a black guy would rustle jimmies. They couldn't possibly have chosen him because he's a solid actor. Everyone knows white people are better, right? Right?
