there's no reason to not call the organization SPECTRE then. One doesn't change this huge pece of Bond lore that easily. At least, I hope not.

Come to think of it, SF did go out of its way to say that many years have passed since QoS. If they want to get rid of Quantum and introduce SPECTRE, it can be done. Bond's cell photos from the opera scene could easily have been their demise.

That is, IF they want to do the above. Personally I think it's redundant to re-introduce a new organization when Quantum's a perfectly viable one. Unless they slightly retcon things by saying Quantum is a SPECTRE branch or some kind of cover.

Just thinking out loud for those who can't stand Quantum and can't do without SPECTRE.

There's a reason: It's not SPECTRE. Different goals.

It's a new continuity. Let's have new things. I mean, SPECTRE was an invention of the movies. It was originally SMERSH.

Their goals really aren't that different.

SPECTRE wants to take over the world.

Quantum already has. They want control of the world's economy.

Well that just makes Quantum a more successful version of SPECTRE.

So what is continuity in the Bond timeline?
I get that in Star Trek all the previous continuity happened and lives on in old Spock but they are new free to do their own thing but what about bond?

Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
You see the old Aston Martin and if you were thinking it's just 'looks' the same, he flips the gear stick and there is the red button, therefore Goldfinger happened. So is this a soft reboot? A slight reimaging? what?

Mr. White is still alive and well. Haines is his employer and is corrupt.

Casino Royale, Quantum of Solace and Skyfall are a reboot.

Goldfinger didn't happen. The DB5 was just a reference.

According to 007 Legends, it did, but if you accept the game as canon of the current timeline.

It's the legalities. I heard somewhere EON can use Blofeld, but not SPECTRE so the name change would make sense.

They both ensure more Bond movies get made.

I agree with all of you, I think James Bond is just as worthy of having his own forum section as Star Wars is.

There was one a few years ago. People then complained "He's not a Superhero!!!" then it was taken down

Yes I remember that but at the same time there's no superheroes in Star Wars but that series as a thread. I don't really give a **** if it does but I think Bond is worthy of one as well. Saying "he's not a superhero" is quite petty...

I remember a rumor that Skyfall would center on Quantum creating a weaponized version of the Swine Flu to be used as a biological weapon to coherce governments into surrendering to them.

Sounds like a pretty good idea. Bond 24 could tackle that.

If Ninja Turtles, GI Joe and Transformers gets a forum Bond gets one. He is a hero.

MODS - Please create a Bond forum here on the Hype.

Yep, this is true...Q jocking about exploding pens doesn't mean Goldeneye happened either, just some references celebrating the franchise 50 years.

Bond fans used to say the same thing about Quantum of Solace.

Disagree with you on Canada. Snow and mountains make up for great sceneries, and it's much more wilderness there than in the Alps.
The ending in Skyfall proved that even dull, non-glamorous surroundings can be used for action.
That female Canadian agent in QOS, do you remember? By including her, I thought they would go for Canada in the next film about Quantum. But it seems I was wrong
