I have enjoyed Craig's run as Bond.  I like the human element he brought to the series.  I did enjoy all the gadgets, but I enjoy the action and stunts more these past films.  I am thinking Skyfall is going to rock and be intense.

As for Nolan, story telling wise, he would bring something great to this character and I would welcome his attempt at it.

Next Bond - I am on the Fassbender train too.  Haywire sold it for me.

 I've heard a lot of debates about "who is the best Bond".  To me that is just a worthless argument.  They ALL brought something to the table.  They were all products of their time.  That is why the series has sustained itself for so long.  And, each film, even the really, really bad ones...had their moments.  

I don't mind gadgets, I just think they took them as far as they could with Brosnan's last film.  It was time to bring Bond back down to earth.  To make him tough.  Make him mean.  Make him a product of his time.  

Fassbender could do that and also give us a bit of that suave Bond that I miss.  Like Doctor Who...I don't mind them changing him up while he is still in his prime.  It is when the actors have aged beyond the point to be taken seriously that I dislike.  

RedHood:  Well, there is two of us.  In Haywire (besides the fact that the I wasn't a huge fan of the film) I kept saying...damn, Fassbender just sealed it...he is Bond.  He is good looking, but also has a sense of danger and violence surronding him.  Like there is something lurking below the surface.  A bit of cruelty.  And, he is a damn fine actor.  I wouldn't even mind if they added the scar on his face ala the books.  

I might note:  I'm a James Bond NUT.  I've got autographs, books, models, collectables, martini glasses...you name it.  Total nerd when it comes to Bond.   I even helped put together a James Bond/Spyfest years ago.  The highlight was sharing a martini with James Bond (George Lazenby).  Good times.

That is very cool Sanctum.  I will admit that I haven't read the books, so I will defer to you on the background.  But I have enjoyed the movies and have appreciated what each actor has brought to the series, even Mr. Dalton.  Very cool.

Loved CR but hated QS ... the second movie reminded me of a pure action movie ... hope this new one goes back a bit and balances out the action with the traditional bond elements

 I might point out this fact.  Casino Royale stuck very close to the source material (no doubt, it was one of Fleming's best stories).  If they went back and actually utilized plots from his stories instead of just the name...I think they would have a recipe for success.

Honestly I don't want to see a Nolan Bond. I don't think he directs action well at all. Everything else would be so spot on... but his action sequences would be lacking... but that's just me.

With His style of directing an His writers , I put my bets on His Bond as a hit , if they do pick Fassbender , he better beef up a little an He is also losing His hair , so hurry up . And dont make Him as a  "stuck up Brit "  as Brosnan was  or as Craigs "thug Bond' is . I hope if Nolan does do it , brings back the suave , ladykiller assassin who is  cool when He kills with a gadget or two.

 Next bond, Tom hardy

 Tom Hardy is a great actor.  But, I don't want to see him as Bond....if Nolan took over though...it would probably happen.  He likes his crew.
