How about a Daniel Craig limited edition Leica?
Pierce Brosnan shall be playing Dr Fate in upcoming DC Comics superhero movie Black Adam
Dr Fate was one of DC's first superheros ever, a mystic occult type character with mysterious ancient Egyptian origins, first introduced in More Fun comics 55, May 1940, and one of the founding members of the Justice Society of America. His earliest adventures are usually characterised as being similar to weird HP Lovecraft type situations, but after a few years, as the superhero concept stabilised, Dr Fate became a standard two fisted action hero who happened to have magick based powers.
maybe there'll be a crossover with DC's Doom Patrol tv series, and Brosnan's Dr Fate can meet Timothy Dalton's DC comic book character The Chief?
Have just watched "A Caribbean Mystery"
Agatha Christie's Marple S06E01 - A Caribbean Mystery [FULL EPISODE] - YouTube
This is an Agatha Christie story, with screenplay by Bond author Charlie Higson- who makes a hilarious cameo about halfway through as James Bond.

(Someone should tell the BBC that James Bond doesn't work for MI5)
Times Radio interviewed MI6 director Richard Moore recently. He said his position is still called C according to the tradition and not M. But there has been a change in the title of the person who supplies gadgets: (my translation)
"In this case life imitates art. We made some restructering of the technically division of the organisation, and we struggled finding suitable name for the position. Finally we thought 'you know what, let' s just go for it' and ended up calling the position Q."

In a recent interview Mark Strong said he auditioned for the role of the villan in one of Brosnan's Bonds, but he forgot his lines because he had been drinking with Daniel Craig the previous night 🤣
I wonder who he auditioned to play?
Travellyan, Renard, Carver?
Maybe Gustav Graves since Mark Strong's career didn't really take off until the early 20s.

James Bond: acclaimed writers explain how they would reinvent 007 | James Bond | The Guardian
Today's "Guardian", writers suggest ideas for the future of Bond
hmm, the first one didnt even see the movie so his opinions not relevant.
But the second suggested Mathilde Bond's adventures at Cambridge! that was my idea, I'm calling my lawyers if that gets used.
The last one said "Bond is like Hamlet or Sherlock Holmes. He’s eternal." Youre the Shakespearian scholar in the gang @Barbel : was there a sequel in which Hamlet got better and how did they explain away his death scene in the first adventure?
Why, yes, @caractacus potts - it's called "KRONBORG (Hamlet 2, This Time It's Even More Personal" though the writers (Sir Neal Purvis and Lord Robert of Wade) did have some difficulty in working around the fact that pretty much everyone had died in the original. Hmmm, reminds me of something more recent....
Re Sherlock Holmes *- I suggested elsewhere that Eon should use the solution that Conan Doyle used. Bring Holmes...er, Bond, back in an adventure that clearly predates the ending of NTTD. Then, attention having calmed down, bring him back for good. Doesn't matter if the manner of that defies credulity, the public has already been softened up.
In general, I wasn't impressed by the ideas in the "Guardian" article and have seen far better ideas right here on AJB.
Hamlet dies every time, but for centuries they find new and different ways to tell his story. Sort of sounds like new timelines, doesn't it? 😁
yeh thats probably what the writer meant. It just stuck out tome as an odd example, as if Hamlet was an episodic adventure character like Sherlock Holmes or James Bond, rather than a singular story with a beginning middle and end.
I like @Barbel 's proposed sequel, love the idea of Hollywood turning Shakespeare characters as formulaic bigbudget action movie franchises!
EDIT to clarify, I love the idea as as a thought experiment. Now I'm remembering Tim Burton's version of Alice in Wonderland where the Mad Hatter knew kung fu, and KRONBORG (Hamlet 2, This Time It's Even More Personal) is a little too close to the way Hollywood actually makes movies these days.
I think there is an action movie "trailer" of Hamlet in "The last action hero" starring Arnold Schwarzenegger.
"To be or not to be?"
(lights fuse on bomb)
"Not to be!" 🤣
According to today's "Daily Telegraph" we can expect Dame Barbara Broccoli and Daniel Craig, CMG in the New Years Honours list.
Emma Raducanu and Daniel Craig to be recognised by the Queen in New Year’s honours list (telegraph.co.uk)
The literary James Bond has a CMG as Fleming told us.
I seem to recall that BB is a US citizen so her title will be an honorary one. And what about her brother?
In 1993 Timothy Dalton did a nature documentary titled "In the company of wolves with timothy Dalton". It's really good and Dalton gets really close to the animals. Dalton and especially his eyes have been called wolflike so it's a good fit. Dalton was stil the reigning Bond at the time and he looks great.

Some of us have wanted for years to know more about Tomothy's father, Peter Dalton Legget's service as a captain in the Special Operations Executive (SOE) during WWII. Thankfully the 007 Magazine has done the work and published it's findings in this excellent piece: JAMES BOND 007 MAGAZINE | James Bond News
Timothy Dalton himself was an air cadet in the RAF and according to the James Bond A-Z podcast he was trained in piloting by a veteran of the battle of Britain.

Here is the German version of the song Thunderball! Allan Corb: "Feuerball". Aparently it was used in the German print of the movie, but I'm not sure.
