It looks like the next James Bond film "Skyfall", will bring Q back into the mix. Who will be playing the role of the gadget master ? Well reports are coming out that Ben Whishaw has been cast in the iconic role. He was already announced as part of the cast that includes Daniel Craig, Judi Dench, Javier Bardem, Ralph Fiennes and Albert Finney. 

 

If reports are true, Whishaw will be the first Q in the franchise’s history that is younger than Bond. If you're a fan of the franchise than you will remember the significance of Q (All the great gadgets that get Bond out of sticky situations are created by him), but the character hasn't shown up since 2002’s Die Another Day.

 

Q has been played by Desmond Llewelyn for the last 36 years. 

 

Do you think this is a good casting choice? Are you excited to see Q back in the James Bond universe?
