Comic book movie fans squealed with delight today as new trailers for Justice League and Thor: Ragnarok came out of Comic-Con. I squealed louder still as Eon Productions announced that James Bond will return to U.S. cinemas on November 8, 2019. Bond 25, which will open in the U.K. and elsewhere before hitting the States, will be written by returning scribes Neal Purvis and Robert Wade. No word yet on the movie’s cast and director, including whether or not Daniel Craig will let himself be per$uaded to appear for a fifth time as 007. I hope he does, and I hope the flick follows his pattern of odd-numbered highs and even-numbered lows–his debut Casino Royale outshines the following Quantum of Solace, as the sensational reboot Skyfall tops the most recent Spectre.
Update: The Times says Craig will be back.
