I hope this is the end for both Judi Dench and Daniel Craig. The way I see it, Bond should die protecting M and the world from whatever the villain is doing. Then, to honor his service, and as her last act as M, M creates a branch of MI6 that trains spies to carry on the name / legacy of James Bond. Not only would it serve as an awesome cliffhanger into Bond 24, it would explain how a well-known spy is never (or rarely) recognized and why he seemingly never ages.

Sir, you are expecting too much from Purvis and Wade.

Out of curiosity Mike, did you ever watch the 1967 version of Casino Royale? I know FYEO and BITD both called it a mess, but that deals with that idea (albeit to excess). I don't really care that the series gets rebooted every so often - it's not the same deal as an ongoing TV series which does require a degree of continuity. And after QOS deviated from the formula as much as it did, I don't mind the idea of watching a formulaic Bond film starring Craig. Not to dismiss the idea, especially as the hard reboot would allow for that scenario pretty well, but I don't think I want a 3 film story arc for the franchise. Either that, or I want Craig to stick around for more than 3 films - I'm not sure.

Maybe I am expecting too much, but I feel it would be an interesting twist on the franchise. I mean, if you're going to reboot it, as they have, go all the way. Get gutsy. Kill the star to breed a new one.

And no, I'veI never seen the 1967 Casino Royale.

What Aaron said. If the films got back on track to being every 2-3 years and production decides upon back-to-back film shooting, conceivably Craig could have done another 4 films by the time he's 50. I reckon he'll give up the reins before he hits his fifties, just because is it's such a physically demanding role (nowadays), but as far as the studio's concerned, it's better for them to get their focal star locked down for as many as possible.

Plus I have no problem imagining that Craig's Bond will acknowledge the ageing process more than the others. By the end he will be more broken down, relying on making cut-throat decisions instead of mad chases. A 50 year old Craig who's been Bond for years would definitely have an Eastwood in Unforgiven vibe to him.

When I said "a bit," I seriously meant "a bit." As in "he looks a slight bit older than he did in the last one." And I wasn't talking about the stubble; I meant the slightly grayer facial hair and the more distinct facial lines.

Not saying he's Roger Moore old. Just wondering how many more films he'll do before he retires from the role.
