Well said Risico007! Could not agree more! Give Quantum the opportunity to strike fear and chaos around the globe!
Maybe next time they'll be the shadowy heathens behind the privatisation of a public service. The BBC, the NHS etc. Soon they'll control our water supply, our television, our hospitals. On Her Majesty's Secret Health Service, now that's a film I want to see.
I think they would. The intention had to have been to have a replacement for SPECTRE.
Then the movie goes back to present time, a new mysterious organization surfaces, and - plot twist - it's either Quantum's head, this time heading a new organization named SPECTRE or someone really close to Quantum's head who brought the organization back.
I had never noticed that before. That's interesting. That was a very minor reference though.
Anyway, back to Mr. White.
With all due respect? I hope your instinct is wrong! I am hoping for a return of them both! [-O<
Or simply leave Quantum, SPECTRE, White etc and give us something brand new and fresh. That's personally what I'm angling for. I'm hoping to be surprised by B24 and I have no doubt Logan and Mendes can deliver on that front. I just pray they don't feel obliged to include silly little nods like the gadget laden Aston. No sodding anniversaries this time around so hopefully we can get on with creating a few new icons.
I'd rather take the chance on something new than play it safe, wouldn't you?
I'm easy to please and think that it could work either way, or work with a happy medium.
If EON have them, no one else can use them. That is why you'd want them back. They don't want another Never Say Never Again possibility.
I'm not sure having the rights to Blofeld has instigated a kick bollocks scramble to immediately parachute him into the franchise. Having them back just covers EON against any further litigation. My gut feeling is that they won't do it, unless Logan/Mendes are absolutely adamant they have the perfect story to tell. Mendes seemed very reverent in the way he went about making SF, I just don't get the impression he's the type of director who would bring such a monumental icon of the series back to the fore without really serious consideration. Would you want to give yourself the extra headache, on top of knowing you have to somehow match or better a film that grossed $1bn and smashed the UK BO?
Maybe some would see it as the answer, but I don't think this is an Abrams/Kahn situation. I don't for one minute believe Mendes has any real interest in appeasing the apparent whims of fans. The only way this happens is if Logan has been mulling a Blofeld reboot for the past 3 years and has convinced Barbara, Michael and Mendes that this is the Bond film people need to see. They certainly won't be shoe-horning anything in.
I agree. Although characters like Q and Moneypenny were brought back thanks to the fan service. Even M's classic office at the end of SF. Craig did say he wanted the old irony to return. So, it's hard to tell if they are going to go back with SPECTRE.
Just because Blofeld wasn't translated perfectly in the Connery/Lazenby films doesn't mean he should be brought back. Doctor No of the film wasn't the same as the Novel Doctor no. He didn't like like a stereotypical Asian samurai or got killed by Bird guano. Mister Big was never called Doctor Kananga. LeChiffre wasn't thin or had a weird eye that wept blood. Hugo Drax of the book wasn't Space Hitler or pressed for cucumber sandwiches. So many of the iconic Bond villains were never translated page for page onto the screen Are we going to reboot them all so they were exact copies of their literary counterparts?
