These two are very iconic. Bond and the Aston Martin could be compared to Batman and the Batmobile or even Knight Rider.

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

Looks great, but Bond is supposed to be perpetually around 40 years old. Daniel Craig looks like he's aging early, though he still looks awesome.

Also, he seems to be using a Walther PPK, yet again. Bond inexplicably switched back to the old gun last movie, and he seems to be keeping it. I understand it's iconic, and they are in fact still making modern versions of the gun, but I would have thought that a guy who gets in as many gunfights as this guy would carry something with a bit more kick, or at least more bullets. I miss the days when he carried around the P99.

Eh, he still looks younger than Roger Moore

As an aside, the Bond message board I post at has been so slow today because of all the people scoping out the new pictures. To Bond fans, this is like an early Christmas

Didn't you see the screencap earlier in the thread? It's Felix Leiter.

Looking forward to this. It looks to be Craig's best outing thus far.

Bond doesn't need lots of ammo 'cos he he can shoot strighter than the average action hero

I guess the in universe answer is that concealment is more important to someone in Bonds line of work than anything else, although it depends on the situation I guess.

Of course Roger Moore used a .44 magnum

I agree about the aging thing, he's always looked older than his years and whilst I don't think it's essential for Bond to be that suave I'm not sure Craig will still be in the role in 10 years time. I could be wrong though.

Craig is now 44, in his 3rd outing and was 38 when we first saw him as 007. Brosnan was 42 in his debut, Dalton 43 in his debut. Roger Moore was pushing 47 when he first played Bond. Only Lazenby, just under 30 when OHMSS was released and Connery, 32 in Dr No, were younger. In fact, when Connery first quit the role after You Only Live Twice, at 37 he was younger than Craig was in CR.

But yes, Craig's (appropriately for his name) craggy features are ageing a little quicker than his more conventionally handsome predecessors, while his stubble is grey.

I hope he does at least two more. While I haven't read anything to confirm this, I'm willing to bet he'll at least do another one.

^While I haven't been able to find anything indicating whether or not he agreed to it, there were the reports from December that Craig was offered a contract extension for 5 more Bond films after Skyfall.
