Hold on to Your Panties, People! Daniel Craig Has NOT Yet Left the Bond Building



Well, what do you know, the interwebs jumped the gun again. Eye-magine that.


I admit to being part of the is-he-leaving-or-not hullabaloo, and since before Spectre, joining in on the who’s-the-next-Bond speculation (Idris! Hiddleston!), but when over the past couple of days it was reported Craig turned down a huge some of money to return, I didn’t feel like there was definitive word enough; my gut just wasn’t feeling it. And you know what? My gut is usually right.


Today BBC News reports, “Sources tell the BBC Daniel Craig has made no decision on return to Bond,” so stick that in your pipe cigar and smoke it.

We could yet see more of this,


and this,


…and this.


And what fool among us could be opposed to that? We’ve got plenty of time to get to this,


and this…


oh, and this.

  • I would rather they replaced Sam Mendes. His whole morose deconstruction of Bond hit its breaking point now, and there is really nowhere else to go with it. And i wouldn’t want him to drain the life out of Elba or Hiddleston like he did Craig.

  • I’d like the fun of Goldeneye with the face of Elba or Hiddles please. Or i’ll just go watch Goldeye. You never forget your first https://media.giphy.com/media/BKJBHPxi7Utyw/giphy.gif

      He was such a good Bond. Just had such CRAP movies.

    While I hope Craig stays- he’s just so good- I’d like to see more of Q and Moneypenny.

    I also think a prequel of sorts for M could be a metric ton of fun. But who could possibly match the awesome-ness that is Judi Dench?

    • Jelinas

      An M prequel is SUCH a fantastic idea.

    • Freetheklingons

      Wait. Are we saying that Ralph Feinnes is not coming back as M? I love him as M. Dench was amazing, but I think RF is a comfortable fit. Good combo of crisp and warm. Like a great french fry. That sounded weirder than I meant it to sound. IN other news, I loathe these progressive lenses.

      • MissAmynae

        Oh no, I like his turn as M, very much so.

        I just want an excuse for more Judi Dench on my screen. 🙂

      • MissAmynae

        no, not at all. Feinnes is a worthy successor, and I would be sad at his leaving.

        Ralph Fry-nes?

  • Freetheklingons

    I love Craig as Bond. I think he is actually the best Bond. But I’m fine with switching it up. If it frees up Craig to do more interesting things, I’m good. What I’m saying is while I love Bond, I’m more of a Craig follower than a Bond follower.

  • Mrs. Julien

    Now I desperately want SWINTON as Bond!

    • Freetheklingons

      I’m going to out myself as a horrible backwards-thinking fusty old stick in the mud (at least where this issue is concerned), but I am not on board with a female Bond. I cannot even articulate the exact reason. I just need Bond to be a hot man. Because Me. Me me me.
