So would the Operative guy from Serenity (I keep misspelling the guy's name so I don't even try no more ).

As would Colin Salmon or Eamonn Walker.

Finally!

As long as there's a Q, Moneypenny, opening gun barrel, 'Bond, James Bond', 'Shaken, not stirred', and he gets the girl at the end I'll consider it an improvement and right now don't care who writes it.

If it comes out and sucks, then I will be displeased.
There had better be gadgets in this one.

And one liners. Craig's movies have all been so dull to date.

Colin Salmon's definitely too old to take over the role now.

Yeah is Salmon had a chance it would've been after Brosnan.

I'm not worried about his accent. While I liked the movie, Centurion is not the best film for strong dialogue, voices and accents. His old Brit speak is fine in Inglourious Basterds. And yeah, speaking of Connery, I don't think accent much matters when it comes to Bond, does it? Lazenby, anyone? MF could just use his plain Irish sound.
Well, Brosnan frequently did. And apparently they offered the role to Liam Neeson ahead of Brosnan. Neeson pretty much does everything in the same accent.

And a gay one at that! Where is it written that Bond has to be straight?
50 years of shagging strings of women might be a bit of a hint about his preferences though.
Well, technically a gay, black, female, muppet Bond would still be shagging women.
I was going to mention that...!

You mean she should be black, just to be absolutely sure.

Let's go for broke and make Bond a black female Muppet.
And a gay one at that!
With a lisp.

There had better be gadgets in this one.

And one liners. Craig's movies have all been so dull to date.
One-liners? From Casino:

(After the "poison/defibrilator" sequence) "Oh, sorry. That last hand--it nearly killed me."

"I'm the money." "Every penny of it."

"How's the lamb?" "Skewered. One sympathizes."

And of course... "You noticed."


From QoS:

"Tell her slate was a dead end."

"I thinks she has handcuffs." "I do hope so."

"I can't find the stationary. Why not come an' help me look?"


As for gadgets--Craig has them, but they're more subtle and down-to-earth. Listening devices...lock-pickers--miniature defibrilators. And we catch a brief glimpse of other gadgets when he pulls the last one out in Casino.

It's practically a given that, since the origin story is basically over--and Bond has learned his lesson--the Bondian structure will return in the next one--particularly the gunbarrel at the beginning. (Hopefully a bit slowed down--but I like the visual of Craig's Bond walking away as the blood comes down.)

As Moneypenny...well, maybe--if she serves the plot well. Don't force her. Q, I would LOVE to see in the next film. M basically orders Bond to rely less on brute force, and Q trains him in more extensive use of equiptment. Craig-Bond, naturally, takes the gadgets begrudgingly, but comes to accept them.

Re: "James Bond 23" officially slated for 2012!

What worries me about Craig's gadgets is their current real world immediacy and thus short shelf life. There is so much product placement for the newest phone and watch and all that-but those things from his two movies are already out of date. Do we care if he had a Sony Ericcson then? Because now he's going to have to have a smartphone that is honestly, in all actuality, a damn tricorder. After Craig's tenure they may well have to go back to the sixties, because there will be no more fantastic gadgets to show and by time the movie comes out, what he'll have onscreen will be behind.

I agree with Candlelight about the oneliners though, in that I think Craig's are a little more subtle and dry, but they need to have a little more humor coming soon. My favorite scene from CR is the trainride with Vesper, because there is some levity and wit to it.

That's a good way to put it. I really hope the 'Bondian structure' is back for the next one, too. And I'd like to see Moneypenny indeed. However, I don't think they have to name her yet if they don't want to. Just have M have a female secretary in one scene. We'll know who she is, and expect more room for that in the subsequent picture. Besides, when she does introduce herself, we can get a fourth wall glance from Craig regard every penny of that money.
