Yeah, Casino Royale was something of a "reboot."

Using the same "M" as from the prior series.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

"Casino Royale" was indeed intended as a reboot of the series (using the same M aside) "Batman Begins" was cited as an influence on how they were going to treat Bond in the film and we saw elements of that in both films so far.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

Discussing whether Casino Royale is a reboot is the most pointless thing I've ever read. It's not like James Bond is a 100 year old superhero who doesn't age. Every Bond film is a "reboot". Especially when the actors change.

He's not quite 100, but he's getting close. He was in his thirties back in the mid 1950s.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

But haven't there been references to earlier movies with a different actor? I swear I remember there being references to some of the events of the Sean Connery movies during Roger Moore's time.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

^In Live and Let Die, the Jamaican native who helps 007 is the son of the one who helps him in Dr No (I think his name was Quarrel). He was originally going to be the same character until someone remembered that they killed him off in Dr No!

For Your Eyes Only has Bond visit the grave of Tracy, his wife who is murdered by Blofeld in On Her Majesty's Secret Service. Tracy is also referenced in Licence to Kill, which features the same actor playing Felix Leiter as played him in Live and Let Die (I think this is the first time the same actor played Leiter twice, though he'd been played by a much younger man in that film's predecessor, The Living Daylights).

Die Another Day featured many of the gadgets from the Connery and Moore eras.

I like to think that the Connery to Brosnan Bonds took place in a very loosely connected continuity; Brosnan fought Goldfinger but he made jokes about Take That, rather than the Beatles. It was only in Casino Royale that we finally saw a 007 at the start of his career and which very definitively was a break away from the previous movies and actors.

I think this thread needs Jackson's presence. All this Bond and Superman talk

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

I swear to God, if you people turn this thread into another James Bond continuity argument, I will turn this thread around right now.

In other words, talk about The Dark Knight Rises. If you don't have anything to say about that film, well, then, you don't need to post, do you?
