    I would like to see Quantum being eliminated by a greater threat, Spectre. They have been sitting back watching Mi6 and Quantum face off but decide that Quantum can't be allowed to grow. Bond and company have to uncover who is decimating Quantum and why.

    I think they should stick with Quantum for now, have Bond put an end to them in Bond 24 and get complete and unambiguous closure to what was started in CR, then have SPECTRE and/or Blofeld for Bond 25 or 26. Introducing SPECTRE for Craig's last movie or his successor's first. Would either make Craig leave with a bang or have his successor start with a bang, against a classic, iconic adversary.

    I know it'd be great he could be the new head or the secret head of Quantum and then Blofeld once again escapes.

    Right! As the forth film in Craig's tenure, I want Bond 24 to be like Sean's forth film Thunderball where Specter was re-introduced after stand-alone film Goldfinger, like Skyfall. Quantum must play a big role in Bond 24, and the best way for that to happen it to introduce a re-invented Blofeld!

    Bond's world always reflects the political realities of their time. Back in the 60's, the espionage genre was concerned with the Cold War and the film's reflected that. Today, SF was loosely inspired by the Wikileaks events.

    Do we think it likely that in the next film will take place in the backdrop of a Snowden type event? It serves a great dramatic purpose: Bond hunting down one of his own gone rogue. Maybe Q will take on the role of Snowden?

    Two things...

    First of all, except for FRWL, the early golden age bond movies compleetly ignored the Cold War, and instead made Bond's enemy SPECTER. Also, to date no modern Bond movies have touched middleast terrorism, which seems odd given how important it has been in international relations over the past decade. So really Bond films never touch anything thats too political. They wait till things have cooled down and then move in. I think now would be a good time for a Middle east related plot/villan.

    Seccond, Doing a Snowden related plot would be the same thing as Skyfall, because both are basicly Wikileaks. Do not want to see that done again, and besides, by the time Bond 24 comes out, this story will have passed and been forgotten.

    Bond movies rarely touch on actual political issues. However, they are all set in the background of the political realities of their time.

    The Connery movies where about a British spy working during the Cold War. This essence runs throughout all those '60's Bond movies, it may not be directly tackled but the film takes place in the background of these issues.

    The Craig movies take place evidently in a very post-9/11 world. Bond is timeless in the regard that the film's have always avoided directly dealing with the issues of their day but the film's always exist in a heightened reality of real work issues.

    Please, no more rogue agents! Lets at least go one film without having to deal with an MI6 traitor.

    That sounds like a great plot. Veritably Fleming-esque.

    I'll add this comments here since another forum poster seems upset at similar posting.

    Brian Cox - Dundee born actor mostly plays baddies or government type roles. He is not as busy as he was say 10 years ago when he appeared in films such as X Men 2, Troy, Bourne Identity etc.

    I think he would be an ideal actor to put against Daniel Craigs Bond. Maybe not a physical actor but he could still turn out a decent threat if given a good script.

    As much as folk like Benedict Cumberbatch I have nothing against him as an actor but to play a villain straight after his brill role in Star Trek 2 I feel its too soon for him. being type cast as a villain again may appeal to him but he may be better at perhaps playing a friend of 007's?

    Only other actor I'd like see in a future Bond is British actor Gareth Marks from BBC BUGS fame. not been in a lot of film work but he can easily play a baddie if approached. meglomaniac style would work best.

    As for music I always thought Dido would make a decent song & also a mention for Elbow.

    Brian Cox is great, but the last thing the Craig era needs is more feeble reasons for numb-skulls to compare 007 and Bourne.

    I wish that Bond 24 becomes a real classic bond with Moneypenny(Naomie Harris) and M(Ralph Fiennes) is a male and Q(Ben Whishaw) with some amazing gadgets. I am pretty sure Sam Mendes will do a good job like he did in Skyfall.

    Wish list:

    1. I think the gunbarrel should be at the beginning of the film
    2. New Aston Martin Vanquish with some amazing gadgets
    3. I think the theme song should be done by Florence and the Machine

    What do you guys think of my wish list?!

    1. Gunbarrel at the beginning
    2. David Arnold as composer
    3. Quantum/SPECTRE
    4. Fleming unused elements or Live and Let Die FAITHFUL adaptation.

    Here's my ideal set up for Bond 24:
    - Gunbarrel at beginning
    - Ralph Fiennes as M
    - Rory Kinnear as Tanner
    - Ben Wishaw as Q
    - Naomie Harris as MoneyPenny
    - Christina Hendricks or Kerry Washington as Elizabeth Winters ( Canadian Bond Girl )
    - Cate Blanchett or Tilda Swinton as Villain
    - Jason Statham as Main Henchman/Silent Henchman
    - Jeffrey Wright as Felix Leiter
    - Devil May Care as title
    - Quantam returns as more modern version of SPECTRE ( i.e less political issues )

    Cool locations. No South America and NO India!

    Gunbarrell at the begining and slowed down a bit, the one at the end of SF was terrible.

    A minor role for M, just give Bond his orders and pop up in a couple of small scenes elsewhere.

    A more relaxed Bond, with moments of introspection.

    Much more exciting actions scenes, up the ante, come up with something memorable and original, bring back the classic Bond stunts.

    I'm on board with all of this ^.

    I know I already posted in this thread but I'll reiterate my main desires... since I'm drunk.

    - I want to see Quantum return. It doesn't have to be the center of the plot but I want a little continuity.
    - Mr. White should return, if not just to be killed off. Again, I like continuity, or in this case... closure.
    - No SPECTRE or Blofeld. I want them to remain in the past. Let's not fold over on ourselves, but rather expand as a franchise.
    - Some solid espionage and detective work... after all, Bond is a spy.
    - A snowy environment... and perhaps some skiing.
    - A henchman capable of physically challenging Bond and a fight that mirrors the brutality seen on CR and QOS.
    - And Leiter played by Wright.

    Brian Cox, Benedict Cumberbatch or Idris Elba as The Villain.
    Be based on a continuation novel, possibly Devil May Care. (maybe)
    Less of it taking place in Britain.
    MI6 Staff to have a decreased importance in the context of the film.
    Sights we have not seen yet.
    A Daniel Craig suit to stay in pristine condition.

    And that's about it.

    Didn't think I'd be saying this a few years ago, but can we have Bond in some casual clothes? The wax jacket and jeans suited him perfectly in the climax of Skyfall, but the rest of it was pretty much in suits. Thinking back, Casino Royale had a pretty good balance of work and action clothing... the white shirt and chinos that Bond wore in the Bahamas is a solid, casual choice for example.

    Anyone with me?

    I could see that perfectly! Helen Mirren is not only a talented actress, she has spunk and can play menace very well. If she and Daniel pulled off some dialogue together, my my, that would be fire versus fire. Good suggestion! :-)

    An out and out female villain would be great. It's a regret I have with TWINE. Electra was such a fascinating character and to have made her the main antagonist and reveal Renard simply as her henchman, would have made TWINE a better film.

    I am. Bond should wear what's suitable for the action he does. He can't always wear a smoking.

    They just need someone with serious acting shops, so we can get as much fun our of watching them duelling with Bond as we did with Bardem. But a female baddie would be a nice change in the DC films.
