Seriously, he's been a white man since 1963. It would be foolish to change the character. Just keep him the way he is for Christ sake. [spoiler]This is coming from a left leaning individual and Bernie Sanders supporter. PC culture is ruining society.[/spoiler]
Agent 007 can be anyone. They can be a man. They can be a woman. They can be white. They can be black. They can be gay. That's the beauty of the character. Idris Elba is a fantastic actor and would make a great 007.
