    Bond joins the me too movement and gives up seducing women!

    The next movie needs to establish that the ongoing war for information and control (of money, government intelligence, utilities, etc.) from the last four movies has been unsuccessful and SPECTRE return to more traditional Bond-style schemes.

    So, here’s my stab at what should happen next (Purvis, Wade, Wilson and Broccoli - enjoy...)

    With Franz Oberhauser now in custody, Hinx assumes control of SPECTRE. He tells the Special Executive members his predecessor allowed personal considerations to get in the way of business, and he intends instead that they will focus going forward on a simpler core strategy, of counter-intelligence, terrorism, revenge and extortion.

    SPECTRE audaciously steals a world-changing weapon from the US government; “Pandora”, a 100-megaton hydrogen bomb, required to generate the intense heat required for the synthesis of its unique biological/chemical payload and release it in a massive, deadly blast cloud drifting across entire continents and delivering pestilence and sterility, destabilising governments and changing the world order permanently.

    Bond is despatched to investigate the theft of the weapon, that the US officially denies still exists. (His relationship with Madeleine is briefly referenced; it just didn’t work out, once the boredom of normal life kicked in, and he was only on ‘extended furlow’ anyway.)

    SPECTRE grooms, sponsors and manipulates an environmental terrorist organisation, Anubis, into deploying the weapon. Their leader, the young charismatic Emil Aragon, believes they are carrying out an ‘awakening’ by deploying and exploding a nuclear bomb provided by their sponsors, in the major tourist location of the Bahamas, close enough to the US coast and in British territory to awaken the public to the awesome destructive power of these weapons and accelerate an international public campaign for disarmament. Emil doesn’t know the true nature of the weapon they will use.

    Finally face to face with Emil, Bond discovers the consequences of his own past actions. In bedding woman after woman throughout his spying career to further his own ends, with no thought for them afterward, it would not be beyond possibility that he might have fathered more than one child. Emil reveals that he has discovered himself to be Bond’s illegitimate son, bent on some form of justice for his mother’s abandonment and death and his own orphan upbringing.

    As Bond faces off against his various enemies, with their conflicting ideologies, he begins to realise that the UK and US governments just want Pandora and its theft kept secret at all costs, including even his own life if necessary; that Anubis has ill conceived motives stoked by others; and that SPECTRE is very much still in business.

    In a race against time, Bond must find Pandora, stop Anubis from achieving its detonation, and bring closure to his mortal family feud with Emil. Enemies are building up on all sides as SPECTRE, Anubis, CIA and even other OO agents follow their own agendas and their masters’ orders, with 007 in their sights.

    In a final twist in the story maybe the main antagonist swaps sides. Maybe Emil turns to help Bond at the last. And either one or both of their fates could remain unclear at the end; or although they neutralise the chemical weapon they fail to stop the bomb detonating?

    I hope there will be female henchmen/Villian for the next film it's been a long time in bond series since I saw one.
  • From what I see in last scene of SP and OHMSS we could have Madeline and Bond driving on Aston Martin and Madeline got killed in PTS just like Tracy and a female villian connected to bond and Blofeld.

    Yes :) I want something like that too.
    And (maybe) return of "Spectre".

    Spectre should only return if they have some really good ideas to tieup the loose ends.

    I agree with you both 100%. James Bond DOES learn from it's mistakes. Spectre/Blofeld can still have a purpose.

    Spot on!
  • I've always resisted answering Craig related speculation on Bond 25 but I've been drinking on my lunch break and so I think I'm brave enough to tackle the subject at the moment. I think that Bond 25 should feature Bond in his last outing as a Double O Operative for MI6.

    After Quantum of Solace I heard some speculation that the next Bond film would be set in New York City and would feature Al Pacino in some capacity. As a huge Martin Scorsese mob movie fan, I would personally love to see this happen.

    I like the idea of a couple as a villain with equal/shared power and some kind of twisted love/hate relationship between the two of them. Bond could kill one of them mid-movie which would obviously up the stakes plus seeing the villain lose their loved one would give them some depth (as with Thanos).

    It would be something a little different but not threaten the Bond classic template.

    That was done somewhat in The Facts of Death by Raymond Benson. I would like to see his books get full on adaptations.

    We might get to see bond's desk like OHMSS/ DAD considering it's Craig's last.

    If his office is like his home, he probably hasn’t any furniture in it.

    Yeah but office environment is a bit different from home.

    I’ve never pictured Bond as a desk and paperwork guy.

    I'm sure he has one-in fact, the novels and movies show he does but they're often frequently vacant because he's always in the field.

    George Lazenby and pierce Brosnan bond weren't doing desk job but we get a peek of their desk anyway so why not Craig after all we finally get to see his apartment in SP.

    If it's true that Craig's Bond was in the SBS, it would be interesting to use this in the plot somehow. Perhaps ex colleagues who went down the "private military contract" route or see Bond use his survival skills when in a tight spot.?

    I feel like a good way to introduce that would be to reboot Alec Trevelyan. Rather than being a former Double O, Alec can be a colleague from Hereford, especially since the Lienz Cossack plot makes no sense.

    They are never going to bring back non-Fleming characters from the old timeline.

    Yeah. Probably not. It would still be as cool as winning the lottery though

    Another angle (remember Ronin?) would be to have a bad guy who invented a back story as cover including being in the SBS and Bond spots holes in his back story as Bond was actually there.

    Bond taking on a corrupt US President would be quite topical!

    Something relatively new is the developement of PMCs (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Private_military_company) and these offer great potential for abuse by the owner/villain. Be good to see Bond go undercover within one of these.

    The Fleming script from YOU ONLY LIVE TWICE!!! Maybe, BONDS wife(or not) gets killed by BLOFELD and UGLY wife ERMA BUNT. BOND travels to JAPAN on a mission for M but soon realizes that SHATTERHAND is BLOFELD and he has to travel to the CASTLE OF DEATH, filled with deadly plants, deadly tar pits and deadly snakes, where Japanese lovers go to commit suicide!! A hand to hand battle to the death follows a tremendous explosion, destroying the castle and POSSIBLY killing BOND off!!! Here’s where it gets interesting. BOND dies (maybe) in explosion. As a FEMALE BONDS daughter as 00 agent assigned to kill bond who don't know bond is his father.
