Popcorn Culture - Supercut: Gender Swaps in Movies and TV

The idea of a female James Bond has sparked intense (for lack of a better word) online debate on multiple occasions, with many firmly believing that the gender of a character should never be swapped. But fan backlash and gatekeeping aside, what are the ups and downs of changing the genders of well-known characters? On this Supercut, we discuss gender swapping of our favorite on-screen characters, if they're ever done for the right reasons, and if gender really plays an important role in the identity of these characters themselves.
