WARNING: POTENTIAL SPOILERS AHEAD FOR NO TIME TO DIE. Last week, a major leak for the new James Bond found its way online. Allegedly, Daniel Craig’s 007 will have a daughter called Mathilde with his lover Madeleine Swann.
The spoiler was spotted on a principal photography call sheet for No Time To Die that ended up on eBay from the Italian shoot.
In the final scenes of No Time To Die, Léa Seydoux’s Madeleine Swann is escaping the lair of Rami Malek’s villain with Lashana Lynch’s Nomi.
However, they are accompanied by a child called Mathilde, played by child actress Lisa-Dorah Sonnet.
Now a 007 source is claiming that Mathilde will be the subject of a new spy franchise focused on Bond’s daughter.
After all, this is the route Disney is taking with its Marvel and Star Wars properties.
What this would mean for a new actor rebooting the Bond films would certainly be interesting.
However, Warner Bros’ DC films and TV shows are currently managing to have different incarnations of characters like the Joker existing simultaneously.
Like Doctor Who, the Bond franchise has survived and remained fresh by evolution, so fans shouldn’t rule out such radical changes.
In the meantime, No Time To Die has been delayed from April 2 to November 12 in the UK due to the pandemic.
The synopsis 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 Valdo Obruchev, a missing scientist.
“When it becomes apparent that Obruchev was abducted, Bond must confront a danger the likes of which the world has never seen before.”
