Many believe Sam Mendes will change his mind and return to direct a third 007 adventure. If that happens, we can expect to see Daniel Craig return as well. But if it doesn't happen, then Daniel Craig's days as Bond might truly be over. The actor is currently under contract for a 5th Bond movie, but it doesn't sound like producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson will stand in his way if he decides to go.
If Daniel Craig does decide to exit the role of James Bond, producers will certainly be on the lookout for a replacement. At the top of a lot of people's wish list is Idris Elba, who was name checked in an email that leaked during the Sony Hack of 2014. If he accepted the role, it would be the first time a person of color has played the part. Idris Elba himself claims that any chance of him playing 007 is long gone. But who knows? It could happen. If Daniel Craig does decide to step down, he is leaving a nice legacy in his wake, with his previous Bond movies some of the best reviewed installments of all time. What do you think? Will you be happy or sad to see him go? We have two new photos to share from the upcoming movie. Enjoy.Read More
Even if this rumor is true (which is quite possible since both Bond and Star Wars shoot at Pinewood Studios in England), and Daniel Craig does play a Stormtrooper, he certainly won't be readily identifiable by fans when Star Wars: The Force Awakens hits theaters December 18. And, if it's not true, fans can still see the actor return as James Bond in Spectre, arriving in theaters November 6. Would you like to see Daniel Craig or Simon Pegg in a minor role? Let us know what you think below.

With production still under way in Rome, the official James Bond Twitter account has released a teaser poster for Spectre, featuring 007 himself, Daniel Craig. The actor returns for his fourth turn as Bond, reprising his iconic role from Casino Royale, Quantum of Solace and the 2012 blockbuster Skyfall. In Spectre, a cryptic message from Bond's past sends him on a trail to uncover a sinister organisation. While M battles political forces to keep the secret service alive, Bond peels back the layers of deceit to reveal the terrible truth behind Spectre.
Daniel Craig is joined by Skyfall stars Ralph Fiennes (M), Naomie Harris (Moneypenny), Ben Whishaw (Q) and Rory Kinnear (Tanner). New casting additions include Christoph Waltz (Oberhauser), Dave Bautista (Hinx), Monica Bellucci (Lucia Sciarra), Léa Seydoux (Madeleine Swann), Andrew Scott (Denbigh) and Stephanie Sigman (Estrella).

On Monday, the official Twitter account for the upcoming James Bond adventure Spectre revealed that production has resumed following a brief holiday hiatus, by posting a photo from the set that showcased a snowy environment. We had speculated that this photo was taken from Lake Altaussee in Austria, one of the previously-confirmed locations that Spectre is filming in. Now we have five new photos with cast members Daniel Craig (James Bond), Dave Bautista (Hinx) and Léa Seydoux (Madeleine Swann), which confirm that shooting is taking place at the Austrian ski resort Solden.
The official website for Solden confirms that filming will take place between January 7 and January 13, with the production returning to the resort from February 9 through February 17. The production will utilize a cable car, restaurant, a glacier road and tunnel during the Solden portion of Spectre's shoot. Naturally, no story details were uncovered as to why this snowy location is being use. The plot centers on Bond receiving a cryptic message from his past that leads him on a quest to reveal the sinister truth behind the Spectre organization. The production will also shoot at Pinewood Studios in London, and on location in Rome, Mexico City, Morocco and other Austrian locations such as Obertilliach and Lake Altaussee.Read More
Over the weekend, false rumors began to spread that Sony had shut down production on Spectre, the 24th adventure in the James Bond franchise. Those reports were proven to be false, and now we have our first look at the set. This video features Daniel Craig reprising his role as the iconic spy James Bond.
Spectre began shooting in London last week after Sony, EON and MGM officially announced the title and full cast. Now we get to see Daniel Craig as 007 as he hits the River Thames in a speed boat. Standing alongside him is actor Rory Kinnear who plays Bill Tanner, M's Chief of Staff. The scene was shot in front of the SIS building, MI6 headquarters in reality and in the Bond film series.Read More
