Are there any James Bond movies which have a series?

Example: Superman 1, Superman 2, Superman 3...

I mean the same James Bond movie is continued with the same actor and other stars in later released movie series.

If no, what could be the reasons?


Best Answer

The entire Bond series is a set of recurring themes, heroes, assistants and helpers and recurring villains, but it has never been a single plot line; because it was initially based on books which also weren't necessarily sequential in plot, they were in essence simply episodic. I'm sure this has been a part of its continued success. Every time an actor gets tired, they're replaced with a fresh one and off we all go again.

The villain Ernst Blofeld for instance has appeared in some form in nine Bond movies, played by seven actors… but they don't really make any kind of continuous plot.

There has always been some hint of continuity across the movies, but really they can all be viewed as stand-alone. You never have to have watched any other Bond movie to watch another. You may miss some easter eggs, but usually nothing truly significant that you have to know already.
This continuity aspect is well-covered in Is there any continuity between James Bond movies that have different actors portraying the title character?

    More answers regarding james Bond movies series - I, II, III? [duplicate]

    Answer 2

    The simple answer is no, not really.

    The more interesting answer is... more interesting.

    First of, Superman I and II were actually filmed with the intention of being a two part story. Superman III and IV were numbered because the the first two set a precedent - and while there are characters in common with the first two movies, there isn't really all that much continuity. You can certainly watch the third and fourth movies without the other two.

    Onto Bond then.

    Bond was a character in books before he was in movies. Fleming didn't really write for continuity, and the books were rather short, limiting detail around the Bond character.

    The first movie, Dr No, was not the first book. In fact, it took until the twenty-first movie until they did make the first book into a movie, Casino Royale.

    For the most part, the first twenty movies are pretty much watchable all own their own, with very little ongoing story development, even though many of the characters return each movie (M, Q, Moneypenny, Blofeld) - although there is some little continuity here and there - the most well known thread being Bond's wife. Overall, though, these movies are fairly independent.

    However, since Casino Royale and Daniel Craig taking on Bond, the last few movies have resulted in a developing thread. In Casino Royale, we see a fresh Bond get his 00 licence. Quantum of Solace has him follow a trail laid down at the end of the previous movie. Skyfall alludes to a shadow organisation, and sees in a new M. Spectre reveals the shadow organisation, brings in threads laid down in Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace. Finally, the latest movie, No Time to Die (yet to be released) will apparently tie any loose threads ready for a new actor to come in and take in the role.
