The producer for the James Bond movie series floated the possibility of having a nonbinary 007 agent appear in the near future.
During an interview on the Girls on Film podcast with host Anna Smith, producer Barbara Broccoli said that "maybe one day," James Bond might identify as nonbinary, according to the Daily Mail, while expressing that she feels that a man will always play the character.
"I do, because I don't think that we should be making films where women are playing men," Broccoli said in response to a question about whether the character might change from a male to a female part.

"I think we should be making more films about women," Broccoli said. "I think Bond will be a man."
Broccoli, however, suggested the possibility that 007 might one day identity with different pronouns.
"Who knows? I mean, I think it's open," Broccoli answered in response to Smith asking whether Bond might identify as "nonbinary" someday. "We just have to find the right actor."

In a January 2020 interview, Broccoli revealed that the character of James Bond could be "any color" as long as he was a male, Fox News reported.
