Is there a reason Bond doesn't have his own Forum section here on the Hype?

Same reason for SW pre-Disney: I don't know!

I can understand SW though given there wasn't any films planned until 2 days ago, but Bond has been in continuation for 50 years and he can't even crack it for his own section here. I'd like to request a James Bond forum be set up.

I'm with you. It would also prevent us from having the same "favorite/worst anything" discussion we keep having from time to time.

There's 5 Bond topics on the Misc section as is. I think that's enough evidence to suggest the forum wouldn't go to waste. There's also 23 films to discuss and a 24th in the near future.

Quantum can be awesome but thus far, it lacks any real presence in the Craig Bond movies. That's why I want Quantum to be utilized head first in the next one with a megalomaniac type steering the ship, Blofeld or not.

Exactly, Octoberist. I liked the surface CR/QoS scratched though. It's a good enough start.

The whole "we have people everywhere" thing was nice.

A shame Jesper's probably not coming back. He would've been a great character to glue Quantum movies together.

If they are going to use a shadow organisation then change the name from Quantum because when I hear that I shudder.
Call it SPECTER and be done, I think the general audience have a clue who specter are.

Yeah, I wouldn't change the name of an organisation established in 2 movies because one or some more posters might shudder. And I don't think EON will either.

And how often did they even utter the actual word 'Quantum' anyway, besides in that one scene at the end with Bond in 'QoS'. In fact, I didn't realize Bond said 'Quantum' until my second viewing, so obviously the scene ran too fast. I think they can easily change the name to something else.

If they retcon it I won't lose my sleep over it or shudder, but it'll be a shame. Quantum's an infinitely cooler name than SPECTRE, imo.

I prefer OCTOPUS from the 'From Russia with Love' video game.

I want some kind of payoff to Quantum before Craig calls it quits.

I think making a call back to a movie that is generally is disliked is a misstep. They have earned back a lot of good will with Skyfall, they should build on that not piss it away with call backs to Quantum.

Quantum is too big to be ignored just because Quantum of Solace didn't live up to some people's expectations.

I expect them to return in Bond 24, and the introduction of their leader. It'd be interesting if it was a reimagining of Blofeld. However, I don't want a remake of the old movies. No marriage and search for revenge.

Aw, why no marriage? We never got a proper revenge movie for Tracy.

I just think it's unnecessary. We've been there before.

Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace were all about "Bond falls in love and searches for revenge against the people that murdered the love of his life".

Of course a return of QUANTUM is a must, but I would like to see Blofeld in some form and I'm not sure if there is room for QUANTUM and SPECTRE in the same movie.

Why not Blofeld as the head of Quantum?
