    I want Fiennes back. If Judi Dench is allowed, at the last minute, Fiennes should be allowed to continue as well.

    He’s a fine actor, but their are many more; I know there’s precedent, but Craig’s era is self contained, the next incarnation should have an entirely new cast.

    I more or less agree with you, but I do hope they keep Fiennes on as M. He really evokes Lee IMO. I also wouldn't mind if they kept Harris, as she and Fiennes are a good team.

    A new Q would be good, as I think Whishaw is a very Craig-era choice. And for God's sake, they absolutely must recast Tanner.

    cary_fukunaga I don’t post much, so I’m very late in this thank you to @officialtriumph Lee Morrison (stunts master wizard) Chris Cheetham, Adam VanderVeen and @triumphofwestchester for hooking us up with the newest #tiger900 for our trek on the #NEBDR last summer. Apologies for bringing it home without a windshield and basically totaled, the route was wet and gnarly and I maybe flipped it a few times. But it got me round trip with a major smile on my face despite the brushes with near death

    I am hopeful that Cary will someday return to the Bond franchise. He is very cool and seems to have translated that cool into the film.

    I’d rather Whishaw and Harris stay on for future movies. Whilst Fiennes is a fine actor of high caliber in other movies, I find him to be dreadfully dull as M.

    For those wanting a clean slate slate for the next Bond, they need to remember Casino Royale had quite a few returning Bond family members: Martin Campbell, Purvis and Wade, and Judi Dench, just to name a few. And it was a reboot. Goldeneye had even less: Desmond Llewelyn, Joe Don Baker and Michael G Wilson. Why shouldn't can't the MI6 regulars of Daniel Craig's era get a second chance? It sounds a bit hypocritical not to give them a chance.

    Not hypocrisy, what a loaded word that is, simply preference

    Lee Morrison, stunt co-ordinator, spilled the beans about a Norway stunt:

    What was the most challenging motorcycle stunt scene?

    “Well for the Tiger, and remember these are stunt professionals, it was probably when we were riding them at high speeds and bouncing off the sides of cars during the Norway chase scene! It was amazing being able to ride behind and direct my lead stunt rider, constantly telling him to get in there, I want you alongside ‘Bond’, hitting the side of his door, cutting behind. There was a point where we jumped the Tiger over a car and under a helicopter. To have the confidence in a motorcycle to do all those things, on the move, while directing through an earpiece shows you how good that bike is.”

    The balls of steel it takes to ride a motorcycle over a car and under a helicopter. Looking forward to seeing that in the finished film.

    Have you guys seen this Heineken ad with Craig? Uploaded two weeks ago. Must be a pen-reference to Alan Cumming's character Boris Ivanovih Grishenko in GoldenEye? Some twitter guy explained:

    The gag is that the people are confusing Craig for Bond. They think if he clicks the pen again, then the bomb will go off. But he's oblivious to it.

    I think it's just him doing some crosswords and joking about the explosive pen from Goldeneye and quote by Q in Skyfall...

    Me too. I think Fiennes is a great M. He was destined to be a part of the family. At one point I felt he could've been Bond even.

    It would be nice if theaters did a SPECTRE/NTTD tandem showing for the sake of continuity. Plus, it wouldn’t be a bad idea in helping theaters earn a bit more change.

    Will not happen, because both movies have different distributors.
    Even when SF and SP both had SONY distribute it, there were no double features. Same with CR and QOS.

    And in the end the theatres are not allowed to decide by themselves.
    It looks like EON doesn't like Double-Fearures.
    Prior to the onset of the pandemic there were schedules for Craig Bond marathons of all 5 films.

    This is still listed on the Regal website. I hope they do this. I would pay a pretty penny to see a marathon in the theaters.

    Thanks Contraband. Those are some very tantalizing details about that chase scene. Everything I hear about it gets me more and more excited. Sounds like it will be very cinematic.

    Yes. The one good thing about the delay to October is that I will be more likely to do it.

    I don't think we can judge Fiennes on SP being is first fully fledged film as M, though he was far from dull in SF as Mallory.

    He showed such promise there, made you think he'd be fantastic in SP yet like the cast he was shackled with a terrible script and plot.

    His dullness is down to what he was handed not him as an actor or the idea of him being M.

    Not Fiennes fault, I already get the vibe from the trailers he is much better, I think that will the case for everyone, just look at Waltz, already better and this is just the trailer.

    That being said and @peter and I discussed this earlier today and although I initially said I would like him back, he mentioned the self contained element and that for us DC fans we'd crave for his
    Bond again.

    So possibly best they clean house. @peter mentioned that they went with Dench again as DC was pretty much unknown and somewhat of a gamble.

    Although one that paid off in spades and totally re-established Bond (despite haters personal views) for the 21st century.

    That being said, I feel they'll want another fairly celebrated British thesp for the role, I think it is unlikely you'll see another M as confined to the desk as the wonderful Bernard Lee was for sometime or if at all.

    They can tackle a new era without making it personal and introducing Bond as more of a seasoned agent, it is just I think that M will be more than just the guy who sends Bond off on his missions and will feature more prominently.

    The trouble with keeping the current regulars on, or recasting them with actors of equal stature, is that it means they'll have to keep finding ways of writing them into the main story, which is fine every so often but not every single time. They'd be better off casting dependable B-list actors who they can bring in for a short scene and occasionally more.

    Like others have mentioned, I think the biggest problem is the fact that the Craig era is a self-contained series of films, more so than any era that came before it. For that reason alone it would be a bit jarring to see Fiennes continue as M, let alone Harris and Whishaw in their respective roles. I would prefer an entirely new and reinvented cast for the next actor.

    Well they could continue with Fiennes as a different M with a backstory named Barbara M-something would work.

    Or maybe he could now be Sir Miles, as a new character in a reboot? It isn’t fair to Ralph Fiennes, if Judi Dench got the chance to come back, and that was only because of Martin Campbell.

    This feeling that Fiennes shouldn't continue being M because the Craig era should be self-contained is insanity. They literally carried Dench over from the Brosnan era and it was completely fine.

    In all reality, the contractual agreements matter more than the fanbase wanting to kick him out because they want a clean slate.
