Cool Videos: Imagine Michael Fassbender in a James Bond movie directed by Christopher Nolan!

Jul. 2, 2012by: Alex Maidy

One of the best parts about being a movie fan is that we can imagine fantasy casts for our favorite movie franchises. We can recast pretty much any movie in our imaginations and dream about what could have been.

One fan has compiled a nice trailer for a fictional James Bond film starring Michael Fassbender and directed by Christopher Nolan. While it relies heavily on footage from Nolan's Batman films and INCEPTION, it does offer an intriguing glimpse at what his take on Bond may look like. Seeing as the Daniel Craig Bond films are directly influenced by the BATMAN BEGINS model of setting the fantastical in a realistic world, this works pretty damn well. With SKYFALL hooking a classy director like Sam Mendes, there is no arguing that Nolan could continue that trend by directing a future installment in the 007 mythos.

Plus, it shows Michael Fassbender would be a natural for a role such as this.

Starring an eclectic cast including Liam Neeson, Michael Caine, Marion Cotillard, Joseph Gordon Levitt, Gary Oldman, and Leonardo DiCaprio, I give you Christopher Nolan's JAMES BOND.

If Craig decides he's done with it, I can think of worse actors to take the mantle. But for God's sake, what's with the Inception track? This is JAMES BOND we're talking about. He's nothing without his theme music. And this is actually pretty poorly done.

Oh, but Fassbender would never get the role. He is German. Bonds have all been from either the UK, Ireland or Australia and that is a trend that will continue.

Fassbender is actually half German half Irish, so the trend would continue if he were cast as Bond.

"Witness the origin. James Bond. 007."

See what you've done, Hollywood? You've conditioned your audience to be excited for "the past" instead of "the future" of your characters and stories. You talentless bunch of expensively-suited idiots.

Awful. And Nolan? No thanks, not a very talented filmmaker (just good at stories, but visually not at all).

As much as I like Fassbender, I have to say that that James Bond movie is a movie I wouldn't want to see.

Fassbender is a great actor, but I would rather see him as an antagonist. I don't think he was really an antagonist in First Class, but instead a very tragic character. And there's a big difference. I want to see him just evil/crazy. And he's got that face. Personally, Tom Hardy would look like a good James Bond - if he were to take after Daniel Craig's image.

Yikes. Nice idea but needed a lot more work on the editing side.

LOL

The "Bond, James Bond" was cheesy as fuck, but not a bad mash-up.
