James Bond star Daniel Craig teases ‘EMOTIONAL’ Casino Royale link in No Time To Die

It’s been 14 years since Daniel Craig first took up his Licence to Kill as James Bond in Casino Royale. Since then, the Bond franchise had seen a through narrative across his 007 movies, rather than standalone adventures. And now as he returns for his fifth and final Bond movie in No Time To Die, the 51-year-old has teased how everything will connect back to his first outing way back in 2006.

Speaking with Top Gear Magazine, Daniel Craig said: “I always had in the back of my mind a story I wanted to tell.

“And . . . it kind of happened. We have a through-line.

“And this movie is about tying all those ends up, about reconnecting him to Casino, really, and that’s what we’ve managed to do.

“There’s a big emotional journey for him in it.”

So just what could this mean for Craig’s Bond in No Time to Die?

Well, trailers and set photos have seen 007 paying his respects at a grave in Matera, Italy before a big explosion.

Well, what if this is, in fact, the final resting place of Vesper Lynd?

Played by Eva Green in Casino Royale, the HM Treasury liaison officer turned out to be working for Quantum, a division of Spectre, all along.

Having fallen in love with Bond, she shares information on Mr White before letting herself drown, despite 007’s attempts to save her.

This event took place in Venice, so it’s feasible that Vesper was buried elsewhere in Italy.

Fans will know Mr White, a Quantum leader and agent of Spectre was also Madeleine Swann’s father.

Bond captured him at the end of Casino Royale before he escaped thanks to an MI6 mole during the opening interrogation of Quantum of Solace.

After Mr White shoots himself in Spectre, Bond meets and falls in love with his daughter Madeleine.

And now No Time To Die’s trailers and theme song heavily allude to 007 being betrayed again, but this time by Swann.

It’s not clear what her big secret is, but perhaps she was working for Spectre too?

Hopefully, the big reveal will link all the way back to Casino Royale in some way.

The premise of No Time To Die reads: “Five years after the capture of Ernst Stavro Blofeld, James Bond has left active service.

“He is approached by Felix Leiter, his friend and a CIA officer, who enlists his help in the search for missing scientist Valdo Obruchev.

“When it becomes apparent that Obruchev was abducted, Bond must confront a danger the likes of which the world has never seen before.”

No Time To Die is released in UK cinemas on April 2, 2020.
