Every Clue Suggesting Daniel Craig's James Bond Will Die In 'No Time To Die'

"It will be the death of you."

No Time To Die is Daniel Craig’s final performance as James Bond, but is the character set to die in the film?

While there have been plenty of actors who have starred in the role of James Bond, Craig has brought something very different to the role – a unique darkness and ruggedness that we haven’t seen before.

He’s also the most physical of the Bond actors and his version of the character has come far closer to death than all his predecessors.

There are many hints that Bond will die in the upcoming film with Craig himself remaining very coy about what the film has in store for audiences.

Throughout the trailer, there is a running theme about Bond’s mortality. A number of characters reference the idea of him dying, or they’re surprised he’s alive at all after he seemingly retired.

Lashana Lynch’s character Nomi seems to have adopted the 007 agent number in his absence, warning him to “stay in your lane”.

Christoph Waltz’s Blofield returns in the trailer, talking to Bond about his new life with Dr. Madeleine Swann (Lea Seydoux), saying, “When her secret finds its way out, it will be the death of you.”

Rami Malek’s Safin speaks about Bond’s background and skillset and tells him, “I could be speaking to my own reflection, only your skills die with your body, and mine will survive long after I’m gone.”

There have also been clues in other Bond movies.

Skyfall opens with Naomi Harris’ Moneypenny accidentally shooting Bond during a train chase. He is presumed dead but later returns to MI6.

The movie also leans more heavily into the theme of mortality with Judi Dench’s M. It’s the first time in the James Bond franchise that characters are seen as fully human.

ScreenRant compares the marketing of No Time To Die to Logan, which was Hugh Jackman’s final performance as Wolverine. Both feature their main characters coming out of self-imposed exiles to complete one last mission.

If No Time To Die is similar, we’ll be seeing the death of Craig’s 007.

At this stage, we don’t know who will take on the role of the iconic character next, but we do know that Nomi won’t be the next Bond.

No Time To Die is out in cinemas on 8 April.

This 'Black Widow' Theory Would Bring New Meaning To Natasha's 'Endgame' Sacrifice

And now we're crying...

A new Black Widow theory might give a little more meaning to Natasha Romanoff’s (Scarlett Johannson) final sacrifice in Avengers: Endgame.

ScreenRant has theorised that while Natasha’s ‘family’ seem to survive the Black Widow film, they may not have survived Thanos’ snap.

Natasha’s ‘family’ in the film include Rachel Weisz’s Melina Vostokoff a former Black Widow, David Harbour’s Red Guardian, who is basically Russia’s answer to Captain America, and Florence Pugh’s Yelena Belova, who is also an ex-Black Widow.

The movie goes back in time to the aftermath of Captain America: Civil War where Natasha is one of the world’s most wanted people and is forced to find her old family for help.

It does seem strange to introduce the group now when Natasha dies in Endgame as a sacrifice for the Soul Stone in order to bring back the billions of people who died at the hands of Thanos in Infinity War.

However, it would make a whole lot more sense if Black Widow adds some context to that sacrifice.

In Endgame, there’s a scene where Captain America is trying to persuade Natasha to give up on the Avengers and she tells him, “I used to have nothing. And then I got this. This job. This family.” Which makes it sound as though she’s completely alone and that her first family is dead.

It’s possible that at the end of Black Widow, Natasha leaves her family so as not to put them at risk – she’s a fugitive after all. This is why she returns to Steve Rogers and into battle in Infinity War.

If they died with Thanos’ Snap, it would explain why Natasha is clinging to the Avengers in Endgame, because she’s lost everything else and they’re all that’s left.

Marvel has previously hinted that Black Widow would give more context behind Natasha’s sacrifice and this theory would add a lot of emotional depth to the entire scene.

This way, the scene becomes a sacrifice and act of love for her family. She could have embraced her own death in order to bring back Melina, Yelena and Red Guardian.

Perhaps this will mean that her family will step out of the shadows and become heroes in her honour continuing on the Black Widow series?

Black Widow hits theatres on April 30.

Every Hidden Message You Might've Missed In Jennifer Lopez's Super Bowl Performance

"It was a very powerful move."

There was a lot going on during Jennifer Lopez and Shakira’s halftime performance at the Super Bowl this week and there were a few hidden messages you may have missed throughout the show.

Appearing on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon, Lopez revealed she had been planning the set since November and was rehearsing every day until the Super Bowl.

She described the performance as a once in a lifetime thing and something she’d been dreaming of for years.

Speaking about her entrance on a pole on top of a makeshift Empire State Building, Lopez said, “I wanted it to be like, ‘Women are on top of the world.’”

“We’re on top of the world right now. I wanted to be on top of the Empire State Building and do ‘Jenny From The Block.’”

The singer then explained that her pole dance sequence during ‘Waiting For Tonight’ was a nod to her most recent film work.

“That was my little nod to Hustlers, I was like ‘I learned some pole things, let me see what I can do’, we can put it in there! I just felt, again, like it was a very powerful move. Look ma, no hands.”

Fallon brought up the iconic slide she did and explained that her manager Benny hates, “He’s like, ‘Do you have to do the slide?'”

“It’s my favourite to do… I used to do that in Vegas occasionally and there was a time where I did kind of tumble. So, Benny was always afraid I was going to do the tumble and do the roll and I was like, ‘Nah, nah I got it.'”

They then spoke about how her daughter Emma, who she shares with singer Marc Antony, joined her on the Super Bowl stage to sing a mash-up of ‘Let’s Get Loud’ and ‘Born In The USA’ which had Bruce Springsteen’s blessing.

Fallon asked whether Emme got nervous before the performance, but JLo responded, “She has the performance gene. She doesn’t let it in her mind, you know, how big it is or how it scares you…I think she gets amped, she gets excited, but, like, a cute excited? I wish I felt more like her.”

She also added that Springsteen called her after the performance saying, “You girls can really sing and dance!”

The singer added that he told her hearing her singing his song made his heart “leap with joy”.
