Daniel Craig Daniel Craig is Bond
Readers of CanMag know that we have been excited about Daniel Craig's role in Casino Royale ever since the official announcement. The guy is kick-ass and he should bring his, uhh, kick-ass-ness to the character of Bond.

Though we have been geeked on the actor, other sites and publications have been tearing him to shreds. There are now sites dedicated to explaining why Craig should not be Bond by bashing everything he does. Well, it looks like some people have had enough.


Daniel Craig has Fans


True Bond Fans Weigh In: Vast Majority Praise Eon Productions' New Direction. Fed Up With Negative Press Regarding "The Fan Opinion" Of Casino Royale.

Bond fans are angry at the press certain negative sites have garnered, and seek to redress the balance. After reactionary sites were launched following the announcement of Daniel Craig as the sixth official incarnation of James Bond, the general consensus has been that fans are appalled by EON Productions/Sony Pictures' choice. However, popular fan website CommanderBond.Net has founded DanielCraigIsBond.Com in an effort to allow true fans of Her Majesty's Secret Servant to express their delight at the casting of Craig.

"We were aware through comments made by Daniel Craig and the worldwide press recently that the opinion was the fans were upset by his casting", said CommanderBond.net/DanielCraigIsBond.com founder David Winter "however the majority of our community at CBn are excited by the prospect of a reinvented 007. We just wanted to give them a voice."

DanielCraigIsBond.com was set up in reaction to the ten month battery Casino Royale has received in the press since "CraigNotBond.com" was launched by those disgruntled by the dismissal of Pierce Brosnan as Bond, ordering fans to boycott the film, "but CommanderBond.net has always had a 'let's wait and see' policy", Winter professes, "and we are now getting increasingly thrilled by what we are seeing."



DanielCraigIsBond.com was launched on Friday 11th August and has already received a lot of attention from fans wishing to express their excitement for Casino Royale, the 21st James Bond film by producers Eon Productions. The web site has had messages of support for Daniel Craig from people all around the world; Argentina, Asia, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Cayman Islands, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Malaysia, Norway, Portugal, Switzerland, Trinidad, the UK and the US.

Though we felt cooler going against the media and rooting for Craig alone (so we like to think), it is nice to see that many others agree. Seriously, go see Layer Cake.

Casino Royale comes to theatres on November 17th.
