The final James Bond film took a step that no earlier movie had made earlier than when it truly went and killed off Daniel Craig’s Bond. It raises some doubtlessly fascinating questions concerning the place the franchise will go from right here, however director Martin Campbell, who has reinvented Bond not as soon as however twice, says the straightforward incontrovertible fact that we all know the franchise will proceed means Bond’s demise isn’t that massive a deal.
Whereas the Vegas odds on the subsequent James Bond appear to be altering usually in case you’re going to place cash down on who will direct the subsequent installment of the James Bond franchise, chances are you’ll wish to wager on Martin Campbell, who directed the primary installments for each Pierce Brosnan and Daniel Craig.

Daniel Craig’s model of the character was additionally given a fundamental origin story as properly, one thing we hadn’t seen beforehand, so his bond was seemingly at all times designed to be its personal factor.
The subsequent Bond might actually get his personal origin film to assist separate issues from the Craig years, making it clear it is a new character, however I’m undecided even that’s notably needed. In the event that they determine to hit the bottom working with a brand new James Bond journey that assumes audiences are aware of the character, there’s no purpose anyone ought to balk at it, as a result of audiences are completely aware of the character. It could appear bizarre in case you sit down to observe the James Bond films so as, for Bond to die after which merely be alive once more with no clarification, but when the film is sweet, folks is not going to care a lot.
We’re nonetheless ready for the information concerning who the brand new James Bond will likely be. Whereas it appears all however sure James Bond will stay a person, the character might nonetheless bear a variety of different modifications relying on who’s chosen. Day-after-day is one step nearer to that announcement
