Bond. James Bond. Iconic and straightforward, just like the man himself. As a matter of fact, this might be both his greatest strength and most crippling weakness. In the newest tale from Dynamite Entertainment, Ian Fleming’s James Bond 007: Black Box #1, this is explored and exploited in equal amounts.
A common staple of the long-running James Bond franchise is the Bond girl. There is no set number on how many Bond girls can appear in one film or set rules on the role she will play in the film. The character can be either an ally or an enemy, a pivotal character to Bond’s mission, or just simply eye candy.
For the upcoming James Bond film, Spectre, there will be four Bond girls. Lea Seydoux (Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, The Grand Budapest Hotel), Monica Bellucci (The Matrix Revolutions, Shoot ‘Em Up), and Stephanie Sigman (Netflix’s Narcos, FX’s The Bridge) will play new characters in the film, while Naomie Harris (28 Days Later) will reprise her role as Moneypenny, a role she first played in Skyfall.
Now Sony Pictures and EON Productions has released four brand new images and shared character descriptions for the four Bond girls that will appear in Spectre, which you can check out below.
Sam Mendes‘ Skyfall helped bring back James Bond after the franchise took a slight misstep with Quantum Of Solace. With Mendes set to return for Spectre, the director is saying that he will not be turning for a third time.
Warren Ellis, acclaimed writer of Planetary, Nextwave, and about a hundred other comic book series, has been announced as the writer for a new series about that most famous of British spies, James Bond. James Bond 007 will launch in November (just in time for the new movie) from Dynamite Entertainment. Art on the series will be by James Masters (Guardians of the Galaxy, Batman Incorporated).
The first story arc will be six issues long and be titled “Vargr.” The story will feature Bond returning to London to follow up on work of a fellow 00 agent, only to find out a trap has been laid for him.
The first teaser for Spectre, the new James Bond film, focused on Bond’s past and a possible connection to the titular nefarious organization. While it lacked those trailer moment/action sequences, it was a fine set-up for those who have been waiting for a sequel since Skyfall. Now a new TV spot has arrived, and it features all new footage that wasn’t seen in the teaser trailer. It is a more action focused trailer, with Bond pulling no punches.
The TV spot, which runs at a minute long, also features some older footage, but is primarily focused on showing you just how intense the action will be in the film. Check out the newest TV spot for Spectre below.
