Yeah, MGM has some financial issues so Eon Productions said that until it clears itself up, Bond 23 will be put on hold until then. I also hear that Sam Worthington is a candidate for 007 if Craig decides to step down depending on how long the hiatus will take.

Sam Worthington would also make a great Batman if Bale ever steps aside.

Sam Worthington hasn't proven anything to me. He's just a so-so action star...

Yeah, Worthington would not be a positive step. I think it's more the financing rather than Craig which is getting in the way of Bond 23.

Give him time. I think he has a lot of potential.

He's going to have to work on being less bland and demonstrate some actual personality and presence that makes him stand out.

His three box-office hits in a row don't really belong to his presence in them, and he's not yet able to stand out from the crowd so far, I find.

I'm not sure what his third film is, but I will say that I think he stood out a lot more in Avatar than he did in Terminator Salvation.

Clash of the Titans.

Avatar is the best of the bunch personally in terms of his work I believe. But none of them at this point make me believe he'd be a suitable replacement for the franchises mentioned. That said a good director can often draw good performances out of actors so nothing is impossible, certainly.

I agree. He is kind of boring and he certainly didn't bring anything new to his previous performance in Avatar.

Bond is really a Cold War Hero, i know they tried to turn him into an anti-international terrorist operative in the new Bond films, but do we really need more of this endless re-invention of a character that has lost his relevance for our times?
