    Rami Malek could be our bond villain

    According to Variety, producers are hoping to cast the recent Oscar winner as James Bond's antagonist. The actor himself has fueled rumors by telling Entertainment Tonight, “It would be nice to play a villain, that would be an actor's dream, another dream role for me.”

    ‘Shatterhand’ is an alias

    The film’s working title alludes to a character from Ian Fleming's 1964 novel You Only Live Twice. The name is the alias of super-villain Ernst Blofeld, who was played by Christoph Waltz in the last Bond film, Spectre. Speaking to The Inquirer, Fukunaga seemed to suggest that Waltz might be returning in the upcoming film.

    Craig’s Bond peaked too early but I’m still a fan of his.

    Yeah I’ve never been more disappointed in a movie than I was in Spectre.

    Stupid name for the film. Hopefully, they change it.

    I would disagree, but that's more of a quibble. Skyfall was FAR superior to both.

    The Next James Bond Film Is Getting Its First Black & Female 007

    https://www.refinery29.com/en-us/2019/07/237796/black-female-bond-lashana-lynch-007


    The internet may have wanted a Black Bond, or a female Bond, but it looks like we’re getting both. And neither.

    Lashana Lynch has been tapped to play the new 007 in the upcoming Bond 25 film, the Independent reports. While Lynch, who recently played Maria Rambeau opposite Brie Larson in Captain Marvel, will reportedly be playing the new agent 007, the character James Bond is still expected to be portrayed by Daniel Craig.

    “There is a pivotal scene at the start of the film where M [played by Ralph Fiennes] says, ‘Come in 007,’ and in walks Lashana who is Black, beautiful, and a woman. It’s a popcorn-dropping moment. Bond is still Bond but he’s been replaced as 007 by this stunning woman,” an insider told the Daily Mail.


    This means that while Lynch will be taking on the agent number 007, James Bond is still Bond. Bond is expected to be in retirement at the start of the events of the upcoming film, essentially making the coveted agent number 007 open for Lynch’s taking.

    The casting of Lashana Lynch as the first female 007 is the latest evidence that Bond 25 will be a much more inclusive installment than its predecessors. The hiring of feminist TV writer and actor Phoebe Waller-Bridge to write the script for the film was perhaps the first suggestion that Bond 25 would be in the very least, much more empathetic to its female characters.

    This, if done right, will be a good transition to making it a 007 series instead of a James Bond series - but will it work?

    Way not interested in a 007 series; pretty much no longer interested in a James Bond series.

    Yeah but with bond you at least knew what they were shooting for. With changing 007s I fear this just runs off the tracks. I’m not saying it’ll fail, but it won’t be what my father and brothers rally around as a family event.

    Yeah, I always said I'd be cool with a lot of changes (Elba would be PERFECT), but the one thing you can't do is make Bond a woman--no Jane Bond--because it would change the entirety of his character. This appears to be the way they're trying to back-door that switch on the franchise level, so they can say, "It's still 007. See, we aren't changing JAMES BOND'S sex..." I'm just not interested.

    i think they're doing it just for this movie to try and have their cake and eat it too with the twitter mob.

    my guess is she either dies in this movie or the next and the new Bond ends up being a man... probably another white dude.
