SHIELD looks pretty average at the moment, haven't got high hopes as Joss disappointed me with the Avengers.

SHIELD looks pretty sick, though hopefully down the line we get some cameos from Thor, Hulk, Iron Man, etc.

it's also the perfect opportunity to introduce lesser known Marvel heroes

I know everyone loves Nolan, but like J.J. Abrahms having both Star Trek and Star Wars franchise, giving Nolan the Bond franchise after the Batman franchise, come on. Let some other directors attempt franchise movies.

I don't really see it as "giving him the franchise" since he would likely only make one, maybe two.

I like Nolan, like most people. I just am sick of the same faces getting all the glory. It's creating these false dynasties in Hollywood and prevents other filmmakers from getting ahead.

Sam Mendes, someone who really hasn't had his hand at a pure blockbuster (Jarhead sort of aside) seemed like giving him a Bond film as his break into more mainstream cinema felt right. And I applaud him for not attempting to do another (granted they wanted him for another).

Who knows. A Nolan Bond could be incredible, it just feels like the Bond producers are trying to revitalize the franchise by getting a name that is synonymous with success at the box office. (no shit, I know)
