    We don't need another Sir Roger and AVTAK situation. Time to move on.

    Totally different. Craig is much better shape.

    I think if EON had very good writers every now and then, Craig would stick around. Because, he himself knows he can do a 6th Bond film. But it's the fear of having a bad script that he's wary of. What we should hope for is, starting with NTTD, the writing should be more stellar and consistent for the incoming Bond....and Beyond.

    Exactly. Plus another pay rise and a bit of a rest bite no doubt.

    Craig's done. Let's just accept it and move on.

    Maybe and most likely.

    But Roger was also done in the past....3 times, but he came back when the cheque book came out with increasingly generous amounts.

    But I think narratively this will be the most closed-ended we've had compared to the past.

    Fair point, if the rumours are to believed.

    Craig is my favourite Bond, but I want a new face in the role. We need a new era. EoN could take advantage of this uncertain time to really think where Bond is headed. They need a really strong script to launch Bond number (00)7. I'd love something lighter in tone, with more levity.

    +1.

    Yeah as much as we and a lot of audiences love him, I think it needs to be freshened up again to get everyone interested again. So much has happened in the 14 years Craig has been Bond that they need to make that change for the next film.

    I don't know who should be the next Bond. Perhaps the Bond franchise should finally end. We have 58 years and 25 movies to enjoy.

    I'd prefer that over seeing the legacy being hijacked by woke storylines etc. I'll never surrender to it, that much is clear.

    Me too. Some of the suggestions in the media are so anti-Bond.

    I’d like another faithful Fleming adaption like Casino Royale (2006) to usher a new actor into the role. That film updated Bond without being too PC and woke.

    Which Bond films have been too 'woke' (I never use that word myself) for you?

    All this talk about an older Bond, plus all the new Craig pictures, plus the fact that the man has been on the role for 14 years, which makes nostalgia already possible, makes me really, really want another film from Daniel Craig. Can you imagine? 6 films for the 6th Bond, who got to star in Bond26. The numerology at list lines up, lol

    Lets face it, no one is better suited for the next one as this one:

    I think Eon (especially the besotted Barbara) will try or keep trying to get him back for one more.

    Why wouldn’t they....no brainer.

    He's too expensive now as movie budgets will decrease massively.

    They overpaid DC for NTTD because of Babs crazy obsession with him.

    None so far. But there is a danger they could become such, but hopefully Eon will continue to do a good job.

    I only found out what ‘woke’ meant about 6 months ago. Terrible word.

    1986. Season 3, episode 1.

    It was actually called ‘When Irish eyes are crying’.

    I get the Aidan turner crowd as there was a tv actor I so desperately wanted for 007

    Adrian Paul... god I hate how the highlander series is so dormant now

    I loved the highlander series, and I was an Adrian Paul fan, and I thought he looked a lot like Connery. But at the time another TV actor was Bond, and to be fair, I was a big, huge, Brosnan fan :)

    Agreed.

    On another note, I wonder if this is true;

    As revealed in the book Christian Bale: “The Inside Story of the Darkest Batman, Bale’s performance in American Psycho caught the attention of Bond producer Barbara Broccoli. Pierce Brosnan was still playing James Bond at the time, with The World Is Not Enough being released that year, but producers knew they had to start looking for a replacement, and Christian Bale was on their list.

    According to the book, Broccoli said the role “would be Christian’s for the asking”, but he wasn’t really interested in it, as he wasn’t into committing to a franchise that was “very British”, and even thought James Bond represented “every despicable stereotype about England and British actors”, and he had “already played a serial killer”. The role ended up going to Daniel Craig, and the rest is history”.

    Bale sounds like a whiny little baby, stuck up galore. But we already knew that from the meltdown on the Terminator set. Brilliant actor, but a bit of a diva.

    I think just because someone doesn't like something which you happen to like, it doesn't make them a 'whiny baby', it just means that different people have different opinions.

    And it does show that all of these people we're picking might not even want to do it! We know Cavill does, at least! :)

    I think it is but at the same time Bale's Batman is my absolutely favourite.
