The first two James Bond films starring Daniel Craig famously took things back to basics — no cartoonishly eccentric über-villain, no wildly over-the-top secret lair, and no over-elaborate sci-fi gadgetry. Most of the changes were quite welcome, but that last one also meant the loss of one of the franchise’s most beloved characters: Q, the master of spy technology at MI6 and a sharp comic foil for Agent 007.
EW is confirming that Q will return in the latest James Bond film, Skyfall, as played by actor Ben Whishaw (Bright Star, I’m Not There, Perfume). Q will aid Bond’s mission to help save MI6 after it comes under attack thanks to a looming threat in M’s (Judi Dench) past.
Thanks to Chopsaki for the submission.
