the new daniel craig movies are prequels so it would show how biofeld started off as a evil genius, unless they kill him off which would make no sense whatsoever
but bond 23 is supposed to introduce characters like Q and Moneypenny who were cut fron the last 2

They are NOT prequels, Casino Royale and Quantum Of Solace aren't set before Dr. No, etc. They were done to establish a new continuity. QUANTUM is the new SPECTRE, the Producers have said so themselves.
I do believe Miss Moneypenny and Q will be reintroduced over the next couple of movies, however. Or maybe even both of them in #23. But Blofeld's an icon of the past.

Many are talking about how he was probably killed, but isn't Casino Royale and QoS set before Dr. No? Casino Royale introduces Bond and QoS is an "extension" of Casino Royale, meaning that Blofeld would be alive but younger, I'd like to see how he got into the evil business Do you find this valuable?

No, Casino Royale and Quantum Of Solace are NOT set before the first 20 movies.
This is a fresh start. Not part of the same continuity as before...

Blofeld did die in "For Your Eyes Only." But that is a different timeline. "Casino Royale," "Quantum Of Solace" and Bond 23 are all part of the "beginning of Bond," therefore Bond has not even met Blofeld or came across SPECTRE. Hopefully this takes the confusion away. 0  out of 1 found this valuable. Do you?

I can't believe that so many people actually think CR and QoS are prequels. They're NOT! They aren't set before Dr. No because if that was the case then Bond wouldn't have a 2008 Aston Martin, or cellphones, etc.
The Craig Bond films reinvigorated the 007 series by freeing the franchise up from over 40 years of continuity and starting a fresh new timeline. Blofeld and SPECTRE aren't returning (the Producers said so themselves) because they are part of the previous timeline and have nothing to do with CR and QoS. QUANTUM is the new mysterious organisation for Bond to do battle with now. I say again, these new films AREN'T prequels at all - hope this clears things up...

think we should get off spectre it was destroyed with its leader ernst stavro blofeld a long time ago. I think Quantum is the new spectre and i think with bond 23 we should reveal so much more about quantum and we shold finally see the man behind it all. Do you find this valuable?

"That would be cool if Blofeld made another appearance, but Michael Sheen looks too young. That said, he just doesn't look like Blofeld would. I think Tim Curry should play him. He's British, a good actor, has villainous experience, and he's still pretty spry for his age. And he has an evil laugh to top it off. Plus, Tim Curry's never been in any kind of Bond adaptation (movie, video game, etc.). Who thinks Tim Curry should play the next Bond villain?"
Quite agree, Tim would make a good Blofeld.But, I think that Producers won't. They want to move on w/ Bond and Quantum.

"I think it would be wonderful to have Martin Sheen playing a villain, but I don't want it to be Blofeld. I think they should just give us a new villain. These new films are not prequels... they aren't set before Dr. No. They were done to set up a new timeline/continuity which was a good move on the Producers part. There are definitely still some villains from the Fleming source material that haven't been used in the films yet. Now don't get me wrong if they use Blofeld and do a good job of it then fine but I'd much rather they continue to give us something new... otherwise you will get people going "Bring back Scaramanga next!" "Bring back Red Grant next!" etc. They're great villains but we don't need rehashes of them. :)"
Very true. Keep it fresh and new. Quantum it is.

"Before we go blasting off about brining any villain back, let us look back at some hard numbers at what has happened every time Blofeld has been brought back as a villain. All this information is verifiable through three sources - IMDB.com (type in Blofeld for list of movies appeared in) / the-numbers.com (box office numbers) / and bls.gov (Bureau of Labor Statistics - inflation calculator).
I have taken each movie that Blofeld appeared in and ran the numbers...as you will see there is over a $1 billion loss since the first movie - From Russia and the last - Never Say Never. All these numbers have been adjusted for inflation to reflect actual totals in the year of release and current value.

Please use the following codes when looking at this information (US = US gross receipts in year of release / USI = gross receipts adjusted for inflation / W = Receipts world wide in year of release / WI = gross receipts adjusted for inflation)

FRWL - 1964 (Connery) - US: 24.8M / USI: 172.5M / W: 78.9M / WI: 1.9B (highest grossing)
Thun - 1965 (Connery) - US: 63.6M / USI: 435.4M / W: 141.2M / WI: 966.8M
YOLT - 1967 (Connery) - US: 43.1M / USI: 278.3M / W: 111.6M / WI: 720.7M
OHMSS - 1969 (Lanzby) - US: 22.8M / USI: 134M / W: 82M / WI: 481.9M
DAR - 1971 (Connery) - US: 43.8M / USI: 233.2M / W: 116M / WI: 617.7M
FYEO - 1981 (Moore) - US: 54.8M / USI: 130.3M / W: 195.3 / WI: 463.4M
NSNA - 1983 (Connery) - US: 55.5M / USI: 120.19 M / W: 160M / WI: 346.4M (lowest grossing)

Based on these numbers it shows a substantial loss of revenue when Blofeld is recreated into the script. The last time Blofeld was brought back it cost not only revenue but it took out the career of Timothy Dalton; no one took Bond seriously until Brosnan, people seem to like Craig (I personally don't). Doing anything except moving forward would again send the Bond franchise into a downward spiral, I don’t know if it can recover this time."
Blofeld never had anything to do w/ Timothy Dalton's career and never made an appearance in any of Daloton's 007 capers.

"I disagree on the "new continuity" thing, I think this was a good move, otherwise if they kept going with the first timeline Bond would be an 80+ year old man by now. But I agree we don't need to rehash old villains. We have an awesome new mysterious organisation with a lot of possibilities and they don't need to re-do old villains in order to make it work - it already does!"
Good, RIP Blofeld.

the idea of haven blofeld return in my mind is good idea. they should thought about bringing him back years ago. he was one of the better villians in bond history. it is very likely he is mr white. if you have ever read the book thurnderball you would know that blofeld went by the number 2 not number 1 like he did in the movie. that the way i see mr white as the head man of quantum hidding in the shadows.

Let Blofeld in the smokestack he was thrown in. Having him back with all his trademarks would just give me a disgusting Austin Powers feeling, it would be a creative failure. We've got a new organization, and it works well. Blofeld belongs to the past. I like the way the Quantum organization stays in shadows and uses criminal minds like Le Chiffre and Dominic Greene (like the SPECTRE did with Dr No) instead of a direct scheme driven by the same guy in several movies.

I think it would be kinda cool if they had Sean Connery come out of retirement to film a cameo as James Bond's father. Since the last 2 films are a new timeline, Sean could be James Bond Sr. who fought Blofeld, S.P.E.C.T.R.E. and all the villains of the 1st 20 films. Then he retired after DAD. Once he retired, his son (also named James Bond played by Craig) took up his fathers position and 00 number) I think this would be a cool way to explain the new continuity. And if Connery wouldn't do it they could get Roger Moore possibly. 0  out of 1 found this valuable. Do you?
