Ever since he first shot and charmed his way across the big screen in 1962, MI6 agent James Bond, also known as 007, has saved the world and entertained audiences countless times. Created by novelist and former British Naval intelligence officer Ian Fleming, James Bond has become one of the most recognizable brands in global entertainment as well as one of the most lucrative franchises of all time. Over the years, six actors have officially suited up and become the martini-loving spymaster, and each of them brings something unique to the evolving role that helps distinguish each movie from the last.
Whether James Bond is confronting rogue agents in a foreign country or investigating internal meddling at MI6, audiences know that 007 is more than capable of saving the world (and getting the girl). Now that Daniel Craig has officially exited the franchise and the hunt is on for the next James Bond, it’s only a matter of time before everyone’s spy returns to the silver screen for some type of secret mission.
