Re: Thoughts on which bond film will be referenced most in bond 25?

Dr No will obviously have tonnes of references. But also YOLT (rumoured volcano lair, Japanese culture), and DAD (possible cloning-esque plot). And obviously Craig's first 4 films. I think these will be the main ones.

1 - Lald, 2 - Ltk, 3 - Avtak, 4 - Op, 5 - Dn, 6 - Fyeo, 7 - Tswlm, 8 - Daf, 9 - Sf, 10 - Ohmss, 11 - Yolt, 12 - Ge, 13 - Tld, 14 - Mr, 15 - Gf, 16 - Tb, 17 - Tmwtgg, 18 - Sp, 19 - Tnd, 20 - Dad, 21 - Twine, 22 - Frwl, 23 - Cr, 24 - Qos

1 - Moore, 2 - Dalton, 3 - Craig, 4 - Connery, 5 - Brosnan, 6 - Lazenby

"But Lashana Lynch is the new 007. Maybe she will experience the original Dr No adventure after this film, and 19 further adventures corresponding to the original timeline? Lets throw that possibility out there for folks at home to discuss!"

Huh? Where did you get that from? ajb007/rolleyes In the most recent interview, EON was very clear that while Bond could be any race, color, etc the character will remain male.

Eon are smarter and more innovative than to just do a DN remake. NTTD will be its own beast.

I think GE will get several nods, since the 25th anniversary is around the corner. Maybe the one or two AKS-74U rifles seen is a nod to it, or maybe not. I wouldn't be surprised if there's a nod to every film - but of course, not on a DAD level.

Always have an escape plan. Mine is watching James Bond films.

Though I'm not sold on Nomi being 007, she could be 007 and the character of James Bond would still be male and played by Daniel Craig.

this very forum!
Do a forum search on the terms "Lashana Lynch" and 007, and you can trace the whole discussion over the last couple of months if you missed it.
It seems the rumour did start from an unnamed tabloid, but the producers have been deliberately working with those unfounded rumours to generate buzz.

The trailer plays with the rumour (M says "wheres 007!", cut to Jamaica and Bond, then Nomi appears introducing herself as a new double oh, then another cut)

fellow agent Red_Snow posted interviews with both Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Lashana Lynch herself, where they are each asked about the rumour, and are both coy in their response but go on about how inspirational the very idea is

so don't blame me!



The thing is, in context of this discussion, specifically the OP's question, a new 007 going on to experience remakes of the old adventures in sequence makes more sense than CraigBond doing the same, since he's supposed to be jaded, worldweary and retired!


Anyway, I just had a thought. Malek's character Safin(?) may wear the traditional Noh mask, but No isn't part of his name.
Which character does have No as the first two letters of her name? oooh, thats gotta mean something?!!!

"Is James Bond still 007?"

"No, it's mi! And by the way, I'm also a doctor."

Or maybe James Bond needs to visit the proctologist in this film. When it comes time for the exam, Bond exclaims, "Doctor, no!"
