    (Joking) Theory: The Blofeld reveal was so poorly handled because EON was influenced by Star Trek Into Darkness' reveal of Khan. :)

    What does Eon do. They copy people.
    Casino and Quantum =bourne
    Skyfall= dark knight/avengers style super hero film
    Spectre= mission impossible style film


    This makes me think that the next thing they could try would be a back to back film with B25 and B26. Coupled with the fact Craig is old I dont think its completely impossible. Unlikley but maybe??

    I don't get the logic. Who exactly are they copying in that scenario?
    Upcoming Infinity War P1 & P2 maybe?

    After the TDK comparison you´re losing me.

    I'm guessing a love drama between Bond and Maddy for the first 90 minutes, then Bond breaks with Maddy and goes on a bender for 2 months

    Please dont give Gustav ideas!
    Fatal car accident.
    Comes out as gay.
    Revealed as already married or engaged.
    Head injury and resultant coma or amnesia.
    Unstated irreconcilable differences.
    Desires an open relationship James can't support.
    Her cats can't take living with Bond (or the reverse).
    Stricture of inheritance clauses preclude the relationship.
    Many reasons Madeleine might not return, all could happen off-screen.
    So we wait.

    Now thats something I wouldnt like to happen off screen (I presume we've all seen the important bits of Blue is the Only Colour?)

    Infinity war and just the general trend to bang out films quick like with star wars

    I feel like madeleine coming out as gay would be something Fleming would approve of

    Sorry, I mean I don't get the narrative or tonal comparison. I think we all recognise EON have been copying trends for years and I understand the above Bourne and TDK comparisons (less so the Avengers - way over my head) and I'm assuming the M:I comparison is dragging staff into the field, but no one has a monopoly on two part stories. Filming back to back pictures is something that's happened for years. Maybe I'm wrong, I just don't see an obvious connection.

    Me neither. I was just trying to take a guess at it. I think it's less about back to back filming (the Infinity War films are not being filmed together to my knowledge) but rather more about the announcement of a duo of future connected films.

    I have to ask .. why is everyone talking about Madelaine Swan coming back? In almost all the other Bond films he ends up with a girl, who is gone by the next movie without explanation. Why couldn't the happen in the next one?

    Ah, I see. That makes sense, but I really hope not.

    Precisely, especially after yet another long gap. Did anyone ever question whether Pam Bouvier was coming back in GoldenEye? Had the Craig films NOT ended up being half arsed twined together in a contrived story arc, these conversations about Madelaine wouldn't be happening.

    Natalia was mentioned in the first draft of TND. But, it was only a mention.

    Let's put this into perspective:
    sources on the 'one picture deal' = NYT
    sources on the 'Craig Back for Two' - The bloody Sun.
    So there.

    Will audiences care about Madeleine/Blofeld in B25 if they come back/if they don't? Definitely more than if you'd asked them the same about Vesper round the time of QOS - the landscape and audience expectations when it comes to continuity have changed.

    For better or worse, they started this with Quantum and SPECTRE, and now they have to carry it on as long as Craig is on board regardless of whether you like it or not.

    Nothing, to me, rings true about a two picture deal.

    Same here, I believe it's one pic deal because it's the last for Craig and possibly the last for EON.

    For better or worse that's precisely it. Personally, I like what they've attempted here and would like, if they are going with Craig for 25, to carry that on/finish it off rather than try pretend the events never happened. I personally feel it would be disingenuous for them to try ignore it all after what they've at least attempted to set up from CR to SP.

    Unless another actor is doing B25 in which case - soft reboot.

    Wasn't it MGW who said they wanted him to do 7?

    Actually, eight. He said he hoped Craig would beat Moore's record for number of films.

    That definitely won't happen. So wait, this two-picture deal left for Craig, is it merely a rumor or something all but confirmed at this point? Would it shoot back-to-back or no clue?

    DC will never do back to backs.

    Given how exhausted he seems after shooting one of these, I'd also be shocked if he signed on for another two, back-to-back or not.

    He has also claimed to have wanted out from the moment he signed up. SP presents the perfect opportunity to walk away, and allow some fresh blood to be injected into the role.

    That's very true. My gut tells me he's done but all the stories out there contradict that. Confusing. The only reason he would come back (imho) is if it's to help Babs. I sincerely feel he's moved on from this role.

    Regarding 'back to back': as I mentioned earlier, that's not what this is necessarily about. It could just be a commitment to a forthcoming two picture interconnected duology. They don't have to be filmed together.

    You're delusional.
    Surely we're all entitled to our wishes and hopes on a speculation thread, in lieu of hard facts. We can't all be clandestinely 'in the know' now can we?

    Why don't you enlighten us. Is this a back to back? Is it Sony again? Come on, don't hold back now.

    I don't believe DC has signed a 2 picture deal. I stand by my original belief that he will do Bond 25 and then step down. Seriously cannot ever see Moore's official 7 movies ever being beaten.

    The title and plot were already revealed a few days back here weren't they (shortly after the Warner/Demange leaks)? Looking forward to your confirmation on that too of course.

    Given that they're hammering out these movies at a rate of half the speed of smell, you're probably right!

    He's definitely trolling, mate. If you're referring to the whole Shatterhand debacle, that has been debunked.
