There is discussion about rebooting Bond. I offer my opinion on a Facebook group.
So, what happens now? Where does the Bond franchise go from here following – SPOILER — the shocking end of No Time to Die? If you waited until the very, very, very end of the movie, after all the credits rolled, you will have been greeted by the words “James Bond Will Return.” But what does that mean? Here’s why the next Bond movie will have to be a complete reboot, and why in the long history of the franchise, that’s actually not that weird. Spoilers!
Could James Bond Return from the dead?
Believe it or not, James Bond has died before. At the ending of the fifth James Bond novel — the 1957 book From Russia With Love — James Bond is poisoned and left for dead. It also seemed like Ian Fleming wanted to kill him off, too. Yes, Fleming brought back Bond from the dead in Dr. No (yeah the movie order and the book order isn’t remotely similar) but the point is, there’s a precedent for this kind of thing. Nanobots? Weird genetic serums? Who knows! Maybe if there is a sequel to No Time To Die, we’ll not only get a new Bond actor but perhaps, a James Bond who has returned from the dead in some kind of bizarre sci-fi manner. When you considered that James Bond has gone to space, become a ninja, and managed to stay relevant for over 60 years, it’s not nuts to think he’s got one last trick up his sleeve.
- The US Navy deployed a mobile hospital to a cave system in Norway in October.
- The US Navy and Marine Corps have used Norway’s caves to store weapons and equipment for decades.
- This deployment comes amid tensions with Russia that have led NATO to increase its activity in Norway.
The US Navy set up a new facility in a cave system in northern Norway in October, reflecting the increased focus that the US and its NATO allies have put on the alliance’s northern borders with Russia.
This month, the US Navy announced that Naval Forces Europe and US Navy Expeditionary Medical Support Command had delivered an Expeditionary Medical Facility to a cave system near Bogen Bay in northern Norway, some 100 miles north of the Arctic Circle.
EMFs have many of the same capabilities as a modern hospital and can be deployed on short notice, according to Lt. Cmdr. Michael Lucas, director of operations for US Navy Expeditionary Medical Support Command.
Norwegian caves are “an excellent storage solution” that allow for quickly stowing and deploying the EMF, and Civil Engineering Support Equipment already in them will support the EMF, Lucas said in a press release.
