In five days, Skyfall has piled up more than $100 million domestically, raising its worldwide take to $529 million. As the film continues to do phenomenal numbers at the box office, attention is now turning to what's next for Bond.
We know that Skyfall co-writer John Logan will return to pen the next two Bond movies, which may tell one connected story. But which actor should have the unenviable task of following Javier Bardem's performance in the next films?
There's certainly more than a handful of actors who could slip into villain mode. Rachel Weisz and Kevin Spacey's names have appeared as potential Bond villains. Then again, perhaps Bond fans would prefer someone along the lines of Willem Dafoe, John Malkovich or Clive Owen. Or someone more mainstream like Johnny Depp or a veteran character actor like Forest Whitaker?
UPDATE: Sound off below in the comments section with which actor/actress you think should be the next Bond villain (the poll has been closed).
Which Actor Should Play the Next Bond Villain?
James Bond, Skyfall
Clive Owen could be an impostor 007 then end up being the bad guy since he looks so much the part
Next BOND villain...'I think should be a female villain(s), Actress Tilda Swinton (she was evil in NARNIA) is my first choice, also I like Actress Rachel Weisz (she was awesome in the new Bourne Identity movie and Dream House w/Daniel Craig..'I did not know they were married in real life. How Nice/Wow!!). Actor Javier Bardem/Silva did a splendid evil-job in the newest BOND Skyfall movie yet still Actor Mads Mikkelsson/Le Chiffe takes the cake as the evilist BOND villain, to me: he was sheer evil. Anyway, BOND-Skyfall a Epic spectacular/the whole Cast shined!!!!!
and hey if tilda can't make it we can have Conan O'brien stand in for her...
As good of a list that is, I choose none of the above(mostly be cause I can't. THEY'RE ALL SO GOOD!). I think David Warner would make the perfect Bond villain.
Kevin Spacey or Daniel Day-Lewis.. Daniel probably wouldn't unless the team is great and has enough time to "prepare". Spacey would be soo good even when he's the good guy he just seems like there is a little bit of bad.
Rachel Weisz would be a cool villian-it would be fun to have a female villian, not to mention the chemistry would be great (since her and Daniel Craig are married!)
Me Ben Lordon I would make a good bond Villina
Gary Oldman would make a really awesome Bond villian.
I like Gary Oldman, he's played villains in other movies before.
Jean DuJardin said that he would be doing a few villain roles for a while. I think he would be a great Bond villain.
based on Spacey's villain in that last "Superman" reboot, i think he'd be too over-the-top...how about Idris Elba?
"Welcome to the party, pal."
"I am serious... and don't call me Shirley."
"When am I gonna learn how to punch?"
"These go to eleven."
"Benjamin, have you ever been severely beaten about the face & neck?"
"Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming."
"You're gonna need a bigger boat."
"Jessica's got cable."
