I say... let them finish the series that they are so obviously building on with each new installment with a single actor, Craig in this case. Why is Bond a ripped thug as Craig? Because this is a young, inexperienced Bond. Ever since Casino Royale, the movies have been an unofficial origin story for a younger Bond. Bond didn't jump out of his mother's womb already a lady killer and a suave master agent, after all.

Except that, if you're going to look at it that way, it makes even less sense from a "canon" standpoint.

Why?

If this is "young" Bond, and it's already been established that Bond doesn't meet the current M (Dench) as M until much later when she replaces the M he'd worked with up to that point...why the hell is Dench still M?

In other words: seriously it's all goofy already no matter how you look at it.

Unless the canon that we are talking about is where the name James Bond is just a codename, in which case they retired the Brosnan Bond and replaced him with a new up and coming Agent, and now they are training him...

Or you could just...

While possible, if that's the angle they were going for in making a Craig-specific new Bond arc, why zero mention of previous Bond's demise/retirement?

Seems like the sort of thing that would come up. (It did with M, after all.)

Possibly he would make a good James Bond but the character is iconic and shouldn't be messed with.  Partnering his character with Bond might work better.

I one hundred percent agree with you there.
