WATCH: Michael Fassbender Is 007 In Christopher Nolan's James Bond
Here's a YouTube mashup that is a little too much fun to ignore: Michael Fassbender as secret agent 007 in Christopher Nolan's James Bond (as edited together by one inspired internet film enthusiast).
Industry prognosticators have suggested that Skyfall will be Daniel Craig's final go as 007, so speculation has already begun as to who'll replace him. There ain't a person alive who isn't delighted to have Fassbender taking more prominent roles in Hollywood, and the time is nigh for him to land a major franchise where he's the star. (Magneto doesn't count; he may be the best performer in those films, but when January Jones is in a white fur hat and go-go boots it's hard to determine who's the real star.)
While Fassbender claiming a license to kill (right now he just has a learner's permit) isn't that far-fetched, the chances of Nolan directing someone else's intellectual properties post-Batman are pretty slim. Still, we can dream. Mr88668866 (we've only met causally once or twice, so I don't quite feel comfortable calling him 8866 just yet) thinks it is such a good idea he's trying to “incept” it on all of us.
With the Hans Zimmer score and clips from most of Nolan's best known work in the mix, he's intercut various shots of M-Fass brooding, glancing and scowling in a way that says “Britain’s secrets are safe with me.”
Do yourself a favor and watch this video twice. The first time, obviously, to see if you can catch where all the movie clips come from. The second time to say, you know, this really would be pretty sweet.
