For the Bond fans of color, for the Mission Impossible fans of color, for the Bourne saga fans of color, who get tired of seeing characters of color and the opposite sex shoved into these movies as sidekicks, stereotypes, inserted as an afterthought, or just plane ‘ole not existing in these worlds, Queen Sono is looking like the show we’ve been waiting on.
