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

I disagree that just because Q is in the movie that gadgets must follow. If that is the direction that the script follows then yes that will be the case but if they continue to follow the tone and direction of the previous two films then I would hazard a guess that gadgets will be minimal at best.

^ Yeah, I see Q as providing weapons and cutting edge technology that is perhaps just marginally more advanced than the stuff we have access to - the stuff that Apple or whoever will be selling in a couple of years. No underwater cars, rocket packs or the like.

If Q doesn't give Bond a one man crocodile submarine in this film then I hate it already!!

The idea of a young geeky Q makes perfect sense (So much so that Spooks did it several years ago, replacing Malcom with Tariq)

I do hope they don't go the Deaver route of just giving him an iPhone that does everything!

Shame he's the Doctor cos Matt Smith would make a brilliant Q...

Yeah and at the risk of being a complete Pedant...Bond works for MI6(Or SIS) not MI5 (The Security Services)...

I don't understand why people talk about "minimal" gadgets. The Daniel Craig era has been loaded with gadgets - look at the anti-poison kit in the car, the tracking device, all the magic stuff Bond is able to do with his cellphone, the futuristic table-top at MI6 in Quantum of Solace.

The only difference is that many of the gadgets seen in the Craig films are things that likely exist in real life, or are plausible. (Sort of like how real life has caught up with Star Trek's futuristic communicators and tricorders.) So, OK, I don't expect us to see an invisible car anytime soon, but I've noted no lack of gadgets in the Craig era. All that's missing is a guy codenamed Q explaining how to use them - since odds are James Bond in 2006 was quite capable of figuring out how to use a smartphone.

But in Casino Royale certainly I saw at least 2 characters who could have easily been Q: the guy who injects Bond with the tracker in the Bahamas, and the guy who talks Bond through the antidote process.

Odds are if we see Q again he's going to be more like the "Quartermaster" his code name represents, i.e. helping Bond train with his weaponry, making sure the Walther is clean, etc.

Yeah, I would have thought we're all basically making the same point.

I wouldn't be suprised if his "name" in the film isn't "Q", per se...but M instead refers to him as "Major Boothroyd"...or simply "Major". Even if it's just "Major"...we'll get the idea.

I'd thought the latter was Bill Tanner, but apparently he wasn't in CR, just QOS. Checking the script, that was apparently supposed to be a doctor MI6 had on call. Huh. The things you learn.

Well I guess it isn't beyond the realms of the possible for this younger Q to be/have been a major, but it would take a bit of a suspension of disbelief so I expect him to just be refered to as Q, Quartermaster, or maybe just Boothroyd.

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

I'm so behind in this thread now, The board hasn't been cooperating with me for days!

Anyhoo, I do indeed thing Craig has had gadgets, but they've been too contemporary product placement and are already out of date. So I'm hesitant about some young guy giving him some hip cool thing that is going to be passe by time the next movie roles around. That's why I would rather have a cranky old guy who can't deal with new crap or has something a bit toward the real of fantastic and quirky inventor.

I mentioned it before, but doesn't anyone think McCory could be the new Moneypenny? She seems motherly classy like a step up from Samantha Bond. Although she also seems like a worthy M replacement if Dench is really on the way out. Although I think it would be awesome for Colin Salmon to return if there is a need for a new M.

I forget what else I was going to say from when it wouldn't post for me, sigh. But I did find this. Outside of the wedding ring and the wine instead of a martini, and you might not now it wasn't from a Bond film

Well Bond does drink wine (just make sure it's the right kind for the meal you're having ) and he could be undercover as a married man...

I think McCrory would be a greap Moneypenny, however heaven forbid the role is taken by a woman who's the same age as 007...

As for Q, it is possible to be young yet play the role of an old duffer (see Matt Smith) and it does make more sense these days that the Quartermaster would be of the younger generation.

I reckon Finney will be a new M if it's anybody (and always assuming Dench is planning to leave which doesn't seem certain)...

^I think I read that Finney is one of M's superiors, though whether he's a politician or a securocrat, I don't know.
