When Daniel Craig replaced Pierce Brosnan as James Bond, there wasn't a huge outcry of fan opposition. Brosnan wasn't necessarily a bad MI6 agent, but the pun-heavy, silly direction the character had been driven to eventually soured with fans, leaving them in want of change in the process. And so Craig's arrival was met with equal measures of curiosity, doubt, and a "something's got to change" attitude. But the great thing about the Bond franchise is that whether or not you like the new Bond, a fresh start means they're not retroactively replacing the previous actors.

Until now, that is: Daniel Craig will once again be replacing Pierce Brosnan as Bond. And though I'm betting Brosnan is a little pissed about being recast twice, I'm also betting more fans will actually be opposed to it this time: Daniel Craig will be the face of Bond in the official remake of the classic Nintendo 64 game, GoldenEye 007.
