James Bond is also known as 007, and is a secret agent from MI5, the British secret service. James Bond was created by novelist Ian Fleming in 1953, who wrote a series of twelve books about the adventures of the British spy. The film adaptations are the longest running film series of all time. Daniel Craig is the current James Bond, but apparently the next film will be his last one. There is always a great mystery as to who the next James Bond will be. James Bond is actually a bit of a controversial character. The character's critics call him out for being a misogynist, and stuck in a world of British imperialism.
