Re: "James Bond 23" officially slated for 2012!
It's possible that the new Quartermaster will be recently recruited by MI-5 in the film. I have no problem with Q being younger than Bond. I also don't think that the movie will be bogged down with gadgets galore. While not abundant there have been a few cool devices that we've seen in the two films. I see this as just the continued maturation of Craig's Bond. He is progressing, evolving into the seasoned agent we are familiar with in the books and previous films.
