Solve for M



On the eve of Casino Royale's U.S. premiere, I renew my only question since watching the teaser: If this is a return to Bond's beginnings, why is Judi Dench playing M?

Most likely it's not a return but a "re-imagining." Still, consider the following theories:

1. This is not the M who took office in GoldenEye, but a female predecessor.

2. This is the M from GoldenEye, and "James Bond" is an alias just passed from an agent resembling Pierce Brosnan to one resembling Daniel Craig.

Was it you or Dave White who suggested that this should be thought of as "Bond Begins", i.e. they throw out all the previous story and start over?

Having said that, the "James Bond as an alias" idea is truly bad ass.

That was Dave.

And since I'm totally awesome, that quote by me is right.
