Speculation over James Bond’s sexuality is rife after the revelation of what’s being called an “erotically-charged” scene in the latest 007 flick, Skyfall.

And, since Craig has made no secret that he would be open to Bond being bisexual in interviews while promoting Quantum Of Solace, speculations are running rampant if Skyfall is the movie that finally sees Bond extending his attention to the not-so-fair gender.

“Within that, you can read anything that you want or wish,” he said.
