39 year old Fassbender said he wouldn't be interested in succeeding Daniel Craig, but had ideas about where the franchise could go in the future.
The 39 year old Irish-German actor, a star of huge movie franchises such as X-Men and massive box office hits like Steve Jobs and Assassin’s Creed, has for a while been one of the favourites to take over the role as the British secret agent in the anticipation that Daniel Craig, the current Bond, does not want to play the part again after last year's Spectre.

Daniel Craig has hinted that he might not be done playing Bond, saying the role is the “best job in the world”.
Craig was thought to be unwilling to return for another 007 outing, after once saying he rather “slit his wrists” than play Bond again, but it appears he may have changed his mind.

Craig was rumoured to have been offered $150 million for two more Bond movies earlier this month.
Speculation about the identity of the next James Bond actor has been raging for what seems like forever, but one of the executive producers of the movies has hinted that they very much want Daniel Craig to remain in the role.
“I know they’re hoping for him to come back,” executive producer Callum McDougall told BBC Radio 4’s ‘Today’ programme on Friday (September 30th). He has worked on nine James Bond movies, including the four that Daniel Craig has starred in – Casino Royale, Quantum of Solace, Skyfall and Spectre.

Paddy Power has the 'Suicide Squad' star to be the next Bond girl at 12/1, ahead of the likes of Emily Blunt and Emily Ratajkowski.
There’s been lots of speculation over the last couple of years about who will succeed Daniel Craig as James Bond, but less on the matter of who’ll be the next Bond girl.
However, it’s likely that a major star will play the traditional role, with rising star Margot Robbie currently the hot favourite with bookmakers. Australian actress Robbie, 26, is tipped for the role in a forthcoming 007 movie, which will be the 25th film in the franchise and the first for a brand new Bond actor. She’s currently the 12/1 favourite for a role in the notional sequel to Spectre, according to Irish company Paddy Power in a report in The Sun.

The BBFC reports on the most complained about movies in the UK.
Movies aren't always given a rating that the public agrees with. The most recent James Bond flick, 'Spectre', is one such example, with its 12A certification having been contested more than any other film in the UK last year for the film's gruesome depictions of torture and other violent scenes.
Spectre receives 40 complaints for violent scenes
'Spectre' has officially been labelled 2015's most complained about movie according to UK censors the British Board of Film Classification. Among some of the parts that have upset viewers is a scene featuring someone getting their eyes gouged out, as well as a bit where Christoph Waltz's character Blofeld is drilling into Daniel Craig's Bond's head.

The originals are always the best.
While everyone's busy wondering who might takeover Daniel Craig as James Bond (Gillian Anderson is now a serious frontrunner, at least according to her fans), we're taking the chance to contemplate our favourite 007 of all time. Because no-one says 'Shaken, not stirred' quite like Sean Connery.
Sean Connery will always be James Bond to us
The lead actor... Sean Connery is a Scottish actor who became the first ever James Bond with 1962's 'Dr. No'. As well as 'Goldfinger', he also did 'From Russia with Love', 'Thunderball', 'You Only Live Twice', 'Diamonds Are Forever' and 'Never Say Never Again'. Plus, he's an Academy Award winner having landed best actor for 1987's gangster flick 'The Untouchables'.

She's breaking down all kinds of stereotypes.
As it becomes more definite that Daniel Craig won't be returning as James Bond in the next 007 movie, everyone's contemplating just who has the charm to adopt the role. But there's a big buzz in the air that suggests our next spy should be played by a woman, and Priyanka Chopra is definitely up for the challenge.
Could Priyanka Chopra be the next Bond?
The Bollywood stunner and former beauty queen is set to play the villainous Victoria Leeds in the forthcoming 'Baywatch' movie re-boot, but she has her sights set on much bigger things. Currently starring in the ABC crime drama 'Quantico', she was interviewed by Complex magazine and discussed just what her future holds and her plans on breaking down sex and race stereotypes.

These guys have as much chance as Danny Dyer of being the next 007.
After a rather lukewarm critical reception in comparison to its predecessor, 'Spectre' has left us feeling that the whole James Bond franchise could do with shaking up a bit. And what better way to do that than getting Danny Dyer on board? (Don't answer that.)
Danny Dyer wants to inject some working class charisma into the role
The 'Eastenders' star is willing after all, revealing to The Sun that he's seriously considering applying for the role when Daniel Craig leaves. 'I'd love to do the Bond. Bring something different to the Bond, you know what I mean?' He said. 'Bit of charisma. A working class Bond.'

Brosnan felt that 'Spectre' was overly long, but had plenty of words of praise for Daniel Craig's performance.
Although it came out to an initial flurry of five-star reviews, the latest James Bond flick Spectre has experienced something of a critical backlash in the last fortnight or so. Former 007 actor Pierce Brosnan has become the latest to add his voice to those complaints, describing the movie as “too long”.
Giving an interview to entertainment website HitFix, 62 year old Brosnan admitted that he felt slightly let down by the 24th Bond movie. “I was looking forward to it enormously,” he said. “I thought it was too long. The story was kind of weak — it could have been condensed. It kind of went on too long. It really did.”
The actor, who portrayed the iconic British spy in four movies between 1995 and 2002, argued that it wasn’t distinctive enough and felt rather too much like the Bourne franchise.

Sculptor Bradley Simms is pictured working on the wax figure sculpt of Pierce Brosnan, as Madame Tussauds London announces it will bring together all six Bonds for the first time in October. Brosnan played 007 four times appearing first in 1995’s GoldenEye , he is featured as he appeared in the 1997 film TOMORROW NEVER DIES. - Madame Tussauds London today announced it is bringing together wax figures of ALL SIX James Bonds for the very first time this October, with five completely new wax 007s joining the existing figure of Daniel Craig. To coincide with the release of Albert R. Broccoli's EON Productions, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios, and Sony Pictures Entertainment's SPECTRE, the line-up of Connery, Lazenby, Moore, Dalton, Brosnan and Craig will appear at the legendary London attraction for a limited time only, before embarking on a tour of Madame Tussauds' worldwide. This unique experience, created in close collaboration with EON Productions, will give fans an opportunity to stand side by side with all six Bonds - in the same place, at the same time. Guests are invited to see how they measure up to each 007, pose with their favourite and take a stand out profile picture. Each of these new wax figures will be featured in a classic 007 dinner suit, designed by Oscar® winning costume designer Lindy Hemming, based on the original costume. The Madame Tussauds team already had access to measurements of Craig, Connery, Moore, Dalton and Brosnan from previous figures featured at the attraction but needed George Lazenby's to complete the picture. The star of On Her Majesty's Secret Service was happy to oblige and gave the artists a sitting in LA in February. "The kind of information we can gather at a sitting is hugely beneficial, even at a different time period to the figure we are creating," commented Stephen Mansfield, one of the Principle Sculptors on the project. "George was extremely entertaining and generous and we gathered an entire catalogue of measurements, photographs and footage. We are using those along with references from the film to create what we hope will be an authentic and lifelike figure." General Manager of Madame Tussauds London, Edward Fuller, is delighted to be hosting the line up on the first leg of their world tour. He commented, "It's very at Madame Tussauds - London, United Kingdom - Friday 24th July 2015
