Javier Bardem Confirms Bond Villain Offer

LATimes was able to get confirmation from Javier Bardem that if he joins Sam Mendes' Bond 23 he'll play the villain. Bardem would be an excellent addition to the world of Bond and could help damage control from the underwhelming Quantum of Solace. I just hope they keep the title simple this time around. The 23rd film of the franchise will hit theaters November 9th 2012.

Javier also mentions they're changing the dynamic. I'm not sure what he means but it could have something to do with previous rumors of the plot. It had been rumored that the Afghanistan heroin trade and a female villain would be plot points for the film. It seems both elements might have been scrapped.

They could also be bringing back Q and the gadgets as previously mentioned by Daniel Craig. I would also expect that the next Bond girl could more than just a damsel in distress. I'd love to see a female MI6 agent with 00 status giving Bond a run for his money. Hopefully played by Felicity Jones or Rebecca Hall.

“They’re changing the whole thing, the whole dynamic..I’d be playing Bond’s nemesis, yes, but it’s not that obvious. Everything is more nuanced. It’s very intriguing.”
