It comes Sir Roger Moore’s son Geoffrey has admitted he believes only a man should fill 007’s shoes when the next actor is cast in the iconic role.
Geoffrey – also known as Jaffa – weighed into the debate over who will become the next James bond after Daniel Craig revealed he was stepping down.
When asked if the role should be played by a woman, Jaffa, 57, told the Express: ‘Well, then it’s no longer James Bond. I mean, she could be 006, 008, or 009…’
Lashana’s character Nomi was handed the 007 codename during the last film when Craig’s Bond left MI6 and went off grid.
However Jaffa admitted he thought the move may have caused ‘confusion’ for audiences watching No Time To Die.
He explained: ‘In the last Bond I think this was the confusion. That she [Nomi] was 007 and then said, ‘I’ve got to give it back to Bond. It’s his number.’

Jaffa went on to say that he would approve a female version of Bond if was a separate franchise to the 007 series.
He said: ‘Maybe there will be a ‘From the filmmakers of James Bond comes Jane or Jemima Bond’ or whatever.’
The restaurateur added that women have successfully portrayed spies in the past, noting that Charlize Theron ‘pulled off’ her role in Atomic Blonde.
But doubling down on his original stance he said that it wouldn’t be the same because ‘[Ian] Fleming’s Bond’, should be played by a man.
In an interview with Radio Times in 2021, Daniel revealed why he also thinks a female actress shouldn’t replace him as Bond.
He insisted the part shouldn’t be played by a female actress because they deserve their own roles that haven’t been written for men.
Amid calls for the next 007 to be played by a woman, the actor, who is retiring from the role following the upcoming No Time To Die, stated that rather than cast them in male roles there should ‘simply be better parts for women.’

Daniel joined multiple stars who have spoken against Bond being played by a woman, including the franchise’s producer Barbara Broccoli.
The actor said: ‘There should simply be better parts for women and actors of colour.
‘Why should a woman play James Bond when there should be a part just as good as James Bond, but for a woman?’
He said the addition of Fleabag creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge to the writing team was to ‘spice it up’ but she was a Bond fan so ‘she wasn’t about to take him in a different direction’.
Multiple actresses have supported Daniel’s statement that Bond should be played by a male actor, including Die Another Day star Halle Berry, who said on Entertainment Tonight in 2017: ‘That series is steeped in history… you know, Ian Fleming’s stories. I don’t think you can change Bond to a woman.’
Producer Barbara also said on Good Morning Britain in 2019: ‘We have to make movies about women and women’s stories but we have to create female characters and not just for a gimmick turn a male character into a woman.’
No Time To Die will saw the introduction of the first female 00 agent, played by Lashana, which sparked calls for the next Bond to be played by a woman.
