With it being the 50th anniversary of the James Bond franchise, and with reviews of the 23rd Bond film, Skyfall, being stellar, it’s a pretty exciting time to be a Bond fan.

With the previous two Daniel Craig Bond films, Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace, the point was to slowly re-introduce the trademark elements of the Bond universe, such as the Bond theme, Bond’s classic introduction, and his taste for martinis, so as to compliment Bond’s journey from novice spy in to the man we all know and love- as well as to keep things more grounded in reality by avoiding gadgets such as invisibe cars.

After showing us Bond’s origins, it’s likely that certain staples of the Bond franchise that weren’t present, or were tweaked in the previous two films, will make a reappearance. Here are ten of the James Bond mainstays that should, some of which have already been confirmed, appear in Skyfall.
