It is no secret that the character of Ian Fleming, in his most classic version for the big screen, is seen as obsolete. The 007 of several decades ago hits women, forces them to have sexual relations, among other undesirable traits, a behavior that is completely unacceptable in the present time. Charlie Higson, who has been noted for writing adolescent Bond novels such as Silverfin, By Royal Command or Hurricane Gold, believes that Daniel Craig It is the 007 most woke of all. Here his words:
[Daniel Craig] He has given us a 007 woke, someone who is tender, who cries and gets into the shower in his tux to comfort a woman. Would the original Bond survive in our modern world, or would the culture of cancellation succeed where Specter has failed so many times, ending him for good? […] [Fleming] you would be able to explain the correct temperature at which champagne should be served, but you would be at a loss trying to negotiate the correct use of pronouns.
