    I don't care who plays Bond next except I'd like to see to tone to be more like it was before Craig I miss old school Bond.

    That means he's been Scottish/Swiss since before George Lazenby was cast.

    I agree with your general point, though not your childish and pointless anger. Bond would always be portrayed by a white actor if I had my way. I don't put white characters up on a pedestal as something that us "lowly" non-whites can one day get the "great honor" of playing. I'd rather some of the great black (if we're talking casting Elba) literary characters that haven't yet been adapted to the big screen get some love.

    I'd like to see Elba as the Doctor. He'd be great at it where skin color (and now gender) wouldn't be an issue and it's another iconic British character.

    Would be cool, but I think Eldra might be a bit beyond the BBC's budget.

    He still works with the BBC on Luther. He actually works on a lot things that don't pay that well.

    I wish Elba was in his 30's and could do the role for 10-15 years once Craig does finish. Honestly he's a great actor and would nail Bond. It shouldn't matter if Bond is black or white at all. As long as the actor is good and works.

    Isn't Elba dismissing this as just a rumor? Anyway I think he'd make a great secret agent movie it doesn't have to be Bond. Maybe they can make a new character. Craig definitely wasn't all that as Bond imo good actor not a good Bond.

    "Spectre" was in quite a few ways a sort of more classically-styled Bond; Craig was more quippy than usual, Hinx was basically a new Oddjob/Jaws (complete with near total silence) and Bond got a proper gadget car again (although one that wasn't quite ready yet).

    Plus the fancy hidden lair and many other visual references to past Bond films.


    "Skyfall" also did this a bit but sort of still had some of the edge of the earlier Craig's, especially the parts with Silva/Bardem.

    They threw money at Spectre and it was still crap. Skyfall had the best balance between the classic Bond style and the post-Brosnan grit, imo, but Mendes failed to duplicate the formula for its follow up.

    Boyle is a good director, but I worry what direction he'll take the franchise in - I don't want gimmicky plot-twists, I want genuine tension and good fight choreography, and I'm not sure if Boyle will be content with focusing on simply making a 'solid' Bond film.

    I'd rather prefer someone younger.
