Daniel Craig Talks Style and Aim of BOND 24

The majority of fans were pleased to learn that Sam Mendes and Daniel Craig would be re-teaming for "Bond 24". Following their big success with "Skyfall", which was one of the most grounded and stylistic Bond films to date, a certain "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" motto comes to mind.

In a recent interview, Craig described the tone this next installment would take. It will be a bit of a tip of the hat to the campier, original "Bond" films, but nothing too far in that direction as that's not Craig's style, quote the man himself.

Craig stated, "Hopefully we'll reclaim some of the old irony and make sure it doesn’t become pastiche. I can't do shtick, I'm not very good at it. Unless it kind of suddenly makes sense. Does that make sense? I sometimes wish I hammed it up more, but I just can't do it very well, so I don't do it."

The original "Bond" films were definitely a bit more tongue-in-cheek and filled with sexual innuendoes for the super spy, while Mendes' version was much more realistic. Not to say that some of the dialogue isn't a bit of an homage to those films as it was certainly present, just in a much more toned down version.

I certainly admire that Craig is very aware of his style and limitations. He is one of the, if not the, best Bond's in the franchises' history as he both embodies the suave and sexy side but is also a badass. You're doing just fine, Craig. Just keep doing you.

What do you make of Craig's comments? Let us know in the comments section below!

"Bond 24" is aiming for a November 2015 release.

    I see one that's great enough to stand on his own in a flick and I see two generic Super Heroes below him played by descent actors that will suck of no fault of their own. DC Entertainment and Zack piss off Snyder have destroyed any chance of a good Superman flick. It's generic and badly delivered to screen. What a tragedy to finally get to see the big 3 on screen after all these years only to watch them in piss poor dark generic looking outfits and rewritten backgrounds. FAILURE! DC Entertainment needs to pull their heads out of their asses and give us something good besides Dark Knight and Batman. To my point GO MARVEL!!!!!! May we all be laughing at DC Comics in the end for playing this awful prank on the true fans.

    Marvel has nothing to worry about. DC Entertainment has already killed Superman in this so called "Man of Steel" series of movies. Does anyone recall how the first one sucked? That movie in no way other then title had the tone of Superman. DC has shot themselves in the foot far before the release date against Marvel that knows how to build on charactors, respect them, and the fans. Before all this bull crap with revamping I was 100% behind DC Comics. They have proved one bad film over another that Batman is the only one in the JLA they can get right. This knockoff Superman is and was terrible! Wonder Woman will be just as bad or worse being that DC Comics likes to screw around with her origin and costume the most out of any DC charactor since creation. They simply just don't know what the heck they are doing or how to stay true to the roots of these heroes who have endured for 70 plus years. MOS2 may make it at the box office but mark my words it will not in any way be because it's a great flick. Just the hopefuls having to justify to themselves right and wrongs of the contents. It will suck! Line up for Captain America 3 and catch this flick in the red box.
