It's no secret that the Bond franchise has been split over the past 50 years,with a nasty court case(or two) favouring Kevin McClory for partial rights to the story Thunderball and characters that the film introduced

Which ultimately led to Blofeld being killed off in 1981's For Your Eyes Only(After Blofeld who was considered as Bond's nemesis,did not appear in any of the 1970 Bond films)..no name was mentioned in the film but we all knew who it was that Roger Moore dropped down that big chimney by helicopter,and of course we also saw in 1983 two Bond films one the official one,Octopussy and the other an unofficial Bond film Never Say Never Again,a remake of the original Thunderball script and not the Thunderball that was released,they even managed to rope in Sean Connery as Bond again(rumoured because of Connery and Broccoli falling out at the time)

Octopussy won the battle at the time(Box Office Battle anyhow),but to be honest,they were both a bit shit Tongue


Anyway,Kevin McClory died in 2006 and finally,all the rights are now with MGM/Danjaq

And the rights could be used almost immediately as Bond 24 is still not due for another two years yet

We have seen in the earlier Daniel Craig Bond movies an organization similar to SPECTRE(Quantum),but now it looks like they won't need a substitute,or perhaps that organization can be seen as the beginnings of SPECTRE


Can this be good for the current Bond films?,They have taken 3 films to introduce favourites such as Q and
Spoiler for Skyfall(small spoiler):
Moneypenny
so is it good that they now have the opportunity to introduce SPECTRE and Blofeld back into the series?


And why do i keep seeing Kevin Spacey as Blofeld because of his turn as baldheaded Lex Luthor in Superman Returns? icon_confused

Spacey was also Dr. Evil in the film parody at the beginning of Austin Powers 3, so he's extra qualified.

I want to see a bit of setting mixing and have Spacey play Keyser Soze in a Bond film. He'd be all crippled up, but when Bond or other British Intelligence agents least expected it, he'd become normal and put the jump on them. As a villain, I'm sure he'd dish out pain with something a bit more nasty than a knotted end of a rope to the family jewels.  eek
