People keep bringing this up but while he's more likable in that movie, it's not like he's showing any real range. He's a smirking gameshow host for most of that movie.

It's fun, sure. But he didn't really stretch out or whatever.

Trying to create a continuum between the Bond films isn't the problem; the quality of those films is.

Casino Royale isn't exactly a self-contained film either, it's directly set up for a sequel and the film hints at a Spectre like organisation.

It's not like Bond demands intense shit for every movie.

Cavill is a competent actor. Give him good writer and director and he'll do great.

I like both Hiddleston and Hardy for Bond.

Hiddleston could pull off a posh Bond and Hardy would be a good rugged bruiser like Connery or Craig.

He was Bond up until they decided they wanted older Bond and went with Craig. It was down to those two.

Luke Evans is not a bad option. And if they lean into bisexual Bond, Cavill and Hiddleston can be Bond boys.

It has to be Cavill.He proved that he has what it takes to be Bond in Uncle. He has the looks, he has the charisma, he has the athleticism. Hiddleston is too goofy and creepy to be Bond. A Bond villain? Maybe, but there are better candidates for that out there.

It is, but it didn't feel 'cliffhangery' at all and you could easily just move on and accept that its open-endedness is meant to be like the start of Bond's adventures (which it sort of is due to the Bond theme playing for the first time). I rewatch Casino Royal a lot (it's a bloody fantastic film), but the last time I saw QoS was a few years ago at least and I barely remember it...except that it wasn't a good James Bond film.

QoS was awful, I enjoyed Spectre more even though it's flawed.

Skyfall > Casino Royale as well.

We'll see what he does in Mission Impossible 6 though.

It isn't "sort of" - it is. Casino Royale is a full reboot. That was the origin of a completely new James Bond, separate from all the films that came before.

Spectre is certainly watchable. Heck, I'd say the first half or thereabouts is actually decent - it just gradually worsens after Bond rescues White's daughter. Waltz's character also felt massively underutilised.

Also I like Skyfall and Casino Royal equally as much for different reasons.

I agree with much of how you feel, about it being the "beginning" of Bond, but you couldn't create a film after Casino Royale without directly following up the last scene.

The movie was always going to be about Spectre (Quantum) and Vesper. Or at the very least, deeply reference the two.

Shame it turned out the way it did, though.

The Night Manager convinced me Hiddleston would be the perfect replacement should Craig stand down. I would however like to see DC do one more... he's been a really great Bond and I think he's got one more in him.

Hiddleston gives me the impression could look after himself in terms of physicality, esp. if he adds a little more bulk... Bond ain't no thug and he doesn't need to be ripped.

Would be a worse bond than Roger Moore. Terrible as a lead actor. This dude tanked his role in Kong. Anybody with a decent amount of charisma could have easily worked with that character.

Going from one of the best if not arguably the best bond in Craig to this shit would be sad.

And night manager was pretty good but much like high rise all I saw from Hiddleston was serviceable at best. Nope.

I love hardy but I think he would work better as a Bond villain. Kinda like sean bean in goldeneye. Former 00 agent

Kinda hard thinking of good successors. Elba really is the dream right now but he doesn't want to do it. Id like for them to go with somebody not on the radar. Or I guess Dan Stevens if he worked out

Luke Evans is dope too. Much like Hardy tho it's easier to see him as a bad guy for some reason
