There has been no cigarette-smoking Bond since then because people became more reasonable and aware of the risks of smoking since then. I think that, upon a re-start of the franchise, one would find a way to leave this aspect out. If that happens, no-one will remember within a few years that a sizable part of the population smoked cigarettes. Or else, one might think of Bond telling a chain-smoking Bond Girl after a round of kissing, "You taste as if I'd been licking out an ashtray." That'll do the job.
What point would be served by such a scene?
Similar to that of Gala Brand at the end of Moonraker novel?
And exactly @MI6HQ ;)
In summary, a typical Gen Zer is a self-driver who deeply cares about others, strives for a diverse community, is highly collaborative and social, values flexibility, relevance, authenticity and non-hierarchical leadership, and, while dismayed about inherited issues like climate change, has a pragmatic attitude about the work that has to be done to address those issues. https://news.stanford.edu/2022/01/03/know-gen-z.
How will these characteristics (in addition to those described in the full article) differentiate the next Bond from DC?
I bet he would be blowing all of his.... money, on simping to Twitch Thots.

That’s already too old. It would be like if we had Daniel Craig do the macarena in CR, or have Dalton hitting the dance floor to disco.
I'd guess we all probably got into the Bond films when we were teenagers? I know that I did. The thought of Halle Berry coming out of the water and the Aston Martin Vanquish in DAD got me drooling when I was 11. Audiences who are now 11 or 12 were just being born when SF came out.
It's an accepted truth that EON need to entice younger audiences to the franchise, whilst also satisfying older fans. I'm 32 now, so they don't need to worry about selling a ticket to me or my generation. We grew up with the Daniel Craig films and are invested in what the next era of Bond will look like. However, you need to give younger audiences (who have time and disposal cash) to turn up to the cinema.
You need Gen Z to get intrigued by a younger leading man, younger Bond girls, sexy locations, etc. It might be a turn-off to fans to think of a Bond film capitulating to Gen Z, but remember Gen Z will be old some day and if the franchise dosen't reinvent now it could loose an entire generation of potential ticket buyers for decades to come.
Eon need to figure out what what new direction they can take to please existing fans and excite new fans...Personally, if the films went back to being more lighthearted then I'd be disappointed. I would hope Eon look at a show like Euphoria and think about that kind of style. Hell, why not even hire Sam Levinson to write the script. I'd dig this kind of aesthetic for Bond 26:
That is a really cool aesthetic and I love mescal
Thank you! A example of what I’m also saying is that if something is truly classic, it will be discovered by future generations. I have a coworker who watched Hogan’s Heroes, and she enjoyed it. She’s not even 20 years old! If that can happen to something that ended decades ago, then something that’s been going on for decades will TRULY survive. James Bond will always have fans of all ages. Not many fictional characters can say that for so long.
You speculate, and poorly, while we "first generation Bond fans" already have lived long enough to see people fail to accomplish simple math and simultaneously fail to possess a rudimentary understanding of lifespans. Barring something unusual, most of us will see the next Bond all the way through, assuming even the longest of Bond-actor timespans occurs again. Good luck to you.
If Eon goes back to the sausage factory of delivering a film every year, sure. But at this pace? May take half a century or less.
Here’s to Bond 30 coming out in 2062!
Providing the cuffs and collars match…
1986: Just what we need. A Bond with a terrible mullet and double denim. And a Bond "girl" with a perm.
2005: Just what we need. A Bond with terrible Emo hair and piercings. And a Bond "girl" with dreadlocks.
