In the months leading up to Spectre's release, there had been plenty of speculation that this movie will be Daniel Craig's last as James Bond. Back in September, Daniel Craig said that he "can't even conceive" of playing 007 again.
Then in October, he called the iconic spy a "misogynist," adding more fuel to the rumors that he wasn't returning for any more 007 adventures.
While nothing has been made official by Sony Pictures, MGM or the franchise's production company Eon Productions, Daniel Craig's longtime friend Mark Strong claims in a recent interview with The Short List that Daniel Craig is done with the franchise.
"Do you know what, I'd have loved to have played the villain in a Bond movie while Daniel was doing it because he's a pal and that would have been great. But I think he's come to the end"
