I have only seen him as Loki in the avengers movies I think, is there anything else he's been in that's worth watching? Don't want to pass judgement on the Avengers movies alone. :)

He was awesome in Night Manager - I reckon he's got it for Bond, Damian Lewis would have also been a good bond i reckon.

I wonder how true that 'source close to the actor' actually is. Whilst it would be great for it to be true, it's hardly a confirmed fact.

Would quite like to see Craig do one more. He's been an excellent bond and actually got me back into Bond.

And I agree with Sam. While Skyfall was great, Spectre was a bit of a disappointment. Casino Royale is the one I like the most.
Totally agree. CR is my favourite Bond movie and I just don't understand how they went from that to Spectre. It feels like they watched Austin Powers and thought "oh, that's a good idea". :rolleyes:

Sam Mendes not retuning;
Good I disliked Skyfall and how do you get Christopher Waltz coming across as a limp lettuce in Specter which almost a impossibility. So long as they don't get Marc Forster back, and some decent writers and hope Neal Pervis can come up with the goods as he did in Casino Royal as the next 3 have been rubbish in my opinion.

I'd be perfectly happy with Tom Hiddleston taking on the role, but for me, he'd certainly need to bulk up a bit. One of the things I really like about Daniel Craig's take on Bond is that he portrays him as someone who really does look like he has the skills and physical prowess to rip you a new one.

I also liked QoS. That's right, you heard me, I liked it.

I didn't the first time I watched it because I was expecting another CR, but any time since then I've quite enjoyed it. I liked how we seen him struggle with drink and depression, I liked how it picked up right from CR left off and I love the opera house sequence as they have the chase/shoot out to the music.

It would not have been that bad but the editing sucked in this big time.
This scene was indicative why I strongly dislike the film in this scene from when the action starts there not one shot that not longer than 2 seconds at the most may be only 1 second if were lucky putting may be between 133 and 265 possible edits.

EDIT just done a quick rough count for 60 cuts in about 50 seconds so if the rest of the clip at the same rate that's aprox 318 cuts in 4 min 25 sec.

Totally agree - I watched again it recently and the editing was crazy, even worse than I remembered. The pre-credit sequence had so many cuts it was almost a parody of fast-cut editing. The fight on the scaffold was both sped up and fast-cut to the point where it was ludicrous.

They need to bring back Vic Armstrong!!!

I hadn't noticed that before, obviously I wasn't paying enough attention but now you point it out I can't help but agree it looks horrendous.

I think I still prefer the film to spectre though.

The director had previously said he thought Spectre, which was released last November, would be his final film, but added that he'd said the same after completing Skyfall. "I said no to the last one and then ended up doing it and was pilloried by all my friends, including Atherton [former England cricket captain Mike Atherton] who took great pleasure in reminding me that I said no to the last one and ended up doing it,” he told Radio 5's Jonathan Agnew.

Mendes also touched on the rumoured contenders to play the next 007, a list that includes Tom Hiddleston, Idris Elba, Tom Hardy and Aidan Turner. The bookmakers have backed the group, but the director reckons lobbying by fans is pointless as the decision is taken solely by series producer Barbara Broccoli. "It's not a democracy. Barbara Broccoli decides who is going to be the next Bond, end of story."

But he did add: "I can guarantee whatever happens with it, it will not be what you expect. That's what she [Broccoli] has been brilliant at, and that's how it'll survive."

Opening credits of The Night Manager were basically a direct homage to Bond. Plus glamorous location work: check. Villain (English) who was charming and prone to speeches: check. Handsome leading man who can give and take a beating: check. Multi-national arms dealing plot with sub-henchmen and romantic subplots: check.

Both leading man and director would be great for Bond, a breath of fresh air. I do think that Hiddlestone is almost too good an actor though, and he's funny rather than a wooden platform for one-liners - so that would be interesting.

I'd get him to play a younger Bond who wasn't 100% sure what he was doing, and undone by womanising and too much booze.

That can't be right, we were told a few weeks back that it was Tom Hiddlesdon :)

I think I'll just wait for the official Eon announcement:)

Agreed, we have a new favourite every other week. Let's just see whom the studio confirm as the new bond.
