When everyone saw Daniel Craig step into the suit in Casino Royale it seemed like we were getting a Bond for the 21st century. Craig’s portrayal was the gritty reboot that the spy superhero so desperately needed at the time. Casino Royale was a character driven story that shelved a bit of chauvinism and gadgetry to make room for a more practical version of 007. Bond became more believable through less refinement. Certain established traits did indeed carry over, but this younger, edgier version of the character largely succeeded by distancing itself from the Bond of yesteryear.
