Mendes has long been out of the running, with producers looking at such big names as The Dark Knight's Christopher Nolan to take over the franchise. But the search can end, as Mendes is reportedly on board for Bond 24 as well as Bond 25.

It is unclear exactly what changed Mendes' mind, but it's likely some combination of money and scheduling.

So with Mendes and Daniel Craig returning together for at least two more films, how do you think the immediate future of the James Bond franchise looks?
