After watching Spider-man 2, I can now utter that famous line:

"Spider-man. No more!"

Ah well..........personally I thought he was perfect.

Still it's always exciting to watch a new Bond.

They've let him go? Idiots! I assume this also means Dench will jump ship.

That pretty much sums up what I think. It was always going to happen but I was under the impression that he was going to do one last movie.

That news article, Bosnan sounded pretty final to me.

Nothing against the Yanks but lets please keep Bond - British (or Irish!)

Clive Owen I reckon would be a good choice and would bring back the moodiness to the role like Dalton did and the Bad Guy in 24 Series 3 would make an ideal bond as well.

It sounded final, but it still doesn't mean the producers won't win him back in a final bid. It's possible, look at the Connery bond history.

Thats true.

Something could have upset the applecart somewhere as I'm sure he was going to make on more final film.

The guy from "The Passion" should be the new bond.

Very strange -- considering how good Brosnan has been for the franchise, it seems bizarre that he is (apparently) leaving in such sour circumstances.

His quotes do seem pretty final. If he hadn't been a success in the role, it'd be understandable, but he was.

However, until the official word comes, I still believe he may be back for one more.

Clive Owen should deffinately do it. He would make the role much darker, and enjoyable, IMHO

His tone sounds like he's bitter about something.

Isn't that what Brosnan himself said a numer of times?

I'm not a real fan of Bond, enjoyable, oh yes, but I would never buy a dvd. I thought Brosnan was a very good Bond.

Clive Owen is attracting heat after King Arthur. While the film may not have made the expeceted amount expected, script offers mut be flowing his direction. It would be a good time to get him signed up. I tought his name was mentioned before Goldeneye. He looks more like Bond now he is in his 40's

Quote from Clive Owen (from IMDB)...

"I've never been interested in playing good guys. I'm always attracted to dangerous characters. Those roles are usually far more interesting and I hold no fears about doing them."

That might turn him off the role.


Historically though, Bond actors tend to be those who've been in the running for the role in the past.

Owen would be a great choice, you only need to watch 'Croupier' and the BMW Films to see what he can do.

EDIT: Just read here on AICN that ERIC BANA (!) is in the running as a serious contender. That sure is interesting casting, not sure if it's true mind, but still...

By all accounts he’s lacklustre in KA. While not Bond, Arthur is at least a hero role and if he can’t convince in that why should they pay him the big bucks for Bond? Add to that the fact that KA is tanking and it’s more likely he would have secured the role of Bond before King Arthur was released rather than after when it’s under-performing.

Not really too keen on the idea of Bana. Surely there’s an Englishman somewhere who can do justice to 007?

I'd guess that Brosnan is leaving because the scripts arn't going the way he'd like ie they're too close to the "Summer Blockbuster". Having said that even if they can persuade Clive Owen (I read he wouldn't do it as it's too formulaic (sp?)) to be Bond if the producers want it in a Summer Blockbuster style there's no chance of Clive Owen being a gritty Dalton style Bond - the suits just wouldn't allow it.

Cary Elwes for Bond

Yep he's my top choice at the moment, I couldn't think of a more perfect Bond (he was also the English Doctor who was seeing Alex Kingstons character in the last season of ER )
