Both of these statements are true.

I understand where people are coming from when they say that Idris Elba could pull off Bond. However, if you want to be truly progressive and empower minority actors, how about giving them their own characters and IPs, instead of riding the coattails of whites and using accusations of racism as a cheap shield against well-deserved criticism?
Same goes for shit like the new Ghostbusters.

Just because he's only been white doesn't mean he has to be. There's no explicit statement or reason in the films that he's always white. Moneypenny was white and now she's black. Same principle. It's not explicit. If it was then that would be a different matter, but there is literally no reason bond has always been white in films other than the best choices for the character were white actors. Idris Elba would do a very good Bond based on his past roles and abilities therefore there is no reasonable argument to exclude him from portraying the film version of James Bond as he is the current best choice

In the books the USSR still exists. All the bonds SO FAR have been white. There was a time when all the bonds SO FAR had been Sean Connery.

I'm not saying give him to role BECAUSE he's back but the guy's a talented actor, talented actors should get parts.
>>44883702 makes a damn fine point but the industry in question may not like anything that depends upon new franchises with minority leads. That said his suggestion absolutely SHOULD be recognised.

OP: Cast him as a higher up general in the Imperial Army. The one who gets Bisected by Angron in the early novels before I just gave the fuck up on them. Flesh the character out in a few more scenes and when it comes time for his evisceration watch viewer perception of Angron drop right the fuck down to where it should be.

If he's voice-acting an animated character, fine. If he's playing the part, then no. He just looks too different to the character.

Yeah no... The Romans utterly defeated them in the end, burned Carthage to the ground and then salted that ground.
>>
>>44883722
I fully support this endeavor
>>
>>44882755
So does this imply GW wants a 2 hour movie of the very end Horus Heresy on screen ignoring everything from building how and why the characters are doing what they are doing? Because if they don't want a two hour skirmish between the traitor legions and loyalists where named characters appear only once with a title drop and then either get killed or kill somebody they should invest in an animated series or a mini-series to at least explain everything from Horus starting to fall to Magnus ruining everything until the emperor's inevitable almost-death.

Yes it does. People don't randomly change the color of their skin overnight.

>There's no explicit statement or reason in the films that he's always white.
Except the fact that he has always been a white guy.

>Moneypenny was white and now she's black. Same principle.
What, stupid bullshit for the sake of an incredibly shallow form of "diversity"?

>but there is literally no reason bond has always been white in films other than the best choices for the character were white actors.
Except for the fact he was portrayed as white in the novels the films are based on

>Idris Elba would do a very good Bond
Idris Elba cannot be James Bond, in the same way Tom Cruise cannot be Martin Luther King. There is no doubt in my mind of Idris Elba's talent; he's one of my favourite actors. But he's not white, so he can't realistically play a white guy because it would require far too much suspension of disbelief to be feasible.

This is a very simple concept to understand, and the fact you can't understand it really makes me want to insult the absolute shit out of you, because you're acting like a fucking idiot, or a racist.


As far as the actual question is concerned, 40kids is fucking shit.

>>Moneypenny was white and now she's black. Same principle.

Not really. 'Moneypenny' is a job title. Black Moneypenny is a new character who took over the job, and inherited the title. Same as John Cleese taking over the role of Q from Desmond Llewelyn.

Now, it's entirely possible for the role of 007, the job, to change hands, especially now there's more continuity between films, but that would require James Bond to vacate the post.
James Bond is white. 007 doesn't necessarily have to be.

But let's face it, to most people they're called Bond movies, not 007 movies.
>>
>>44884269
North Africa was a mishmash of Helenic, Latino (in the old sense which included almost all Mediterranean people from Europe's side), a little Black, Persian and everything else that had come and gone from that area. And Phoenicians were much akin to Greeks, so technically Latin.
>>
>>44884269
Phoenicians were not from north africa, they were from the levant, so imagine syrians.
>>
>>44884374
>Phoenicians were not from north africa

Well yes but wasn't Carthage originally a Phoenician colony?
>>
>>44884452
>Well yes but wasn't Carthage originally a Phoenician colony?
It was pretty much all the time a phoenician trade city, thats why its inhabitants mostly looked like phoenicians, I don't understand the "but" here?
>>
Well I guess at least we can all agree that the ancient egyptians were significantly darker than the egyptians of today.
>>
>>44884478
I thought you were saying that they had nothing to do with the Carthaginians but I was just reading your post wrong.

He played The Whitest God in Marvel's MCU and is slated as the next Scottish James Bond.
>>
>>44884352

I was under the impression that both 007 AND James Bond were code names according to recent movies. Not tied to a given person.
>>
>>44883722
OP here. Who is that, that's an eerie accurate look for the Emperor.

While Vulcan seems obvious, Idris could play a pretty decent Horus.
>>
>>44883247

isn't the agent 007 always suppose to be a different guy, but he just changes his name to James Bond like all other 007s.

I mean, how can the guy change appearance every decade or so, but when the feature that changes is skin color, it suddenly makes no sense?

We get it, it's cool to be edgy and racist in high school. It's just dumb in adult land.
>>
>>44884561
Not this shit again...
>>
>>44884572

It has to be a codename sine he uses it in the field.
>>
>>44884572
Recent movies actually assert it is not a code name. And it never was if you read the books.
>>
>>44884616
Why would a spy use the same fake name in every mission? Would that defeat the entire purpose.
>>
>>44884614
Aren't there both really dark and really light Pharaohs because of Nubians and Greeks?
>>
>>44884614
Well they were basically a population of mulattos that culturally favoured light skin over darker skin, given they looked down on the dark skinned nubians.
I don't know what you expect how dark skinned they should be, or how light skinned you belief modern egyptians are.

Well the Emperor could take the appearance of whatever the fuck he wanted, although he was born an Anatolian.

However I'd be completely down with Idris Elba playing the Emperor for his voice. Unlike a lot of actors, he sounds the part. Only actors I'd rate above him is Christopher Lee (dead) and uhhhh.

Honestly I don't really know of many actors who have a kingly, powerful voice who are still alive. Help me out /tg/.
>>
>>44884754
There were nubian pharaos for a time, I don't know why you think this is representive of the egyptian population at any point in time.
Especially given they were portrayed far lighter skinned in all depictions depciting non-nubian pharoas and people, and explicitly called the nubians dark-skinned by comparison to themselves.

Well if he isn't going to look like Clint Eastwood they might as well cast a black guy. McConaughey and Bale is basically the only stars who looks the part, and both turned it down.

Scott Eastwood would the absolute best casting choice for the role. All you need to do is pepper him with a bit of make up to make him look older/wiser.
Anyway, changing the race of the character is foolish because 1) It's disingenuous for the sake of progress race politics, 2) Roland's blue preternatural eyes are mentioned a lot, and 3) it completely undermines the entire racial relationship between Detta and Roland in The Drawing of the Three.
