10. Bond Has A 5-Year-Old Daughter - No Time To Die
As much as Bond fans are fervently debating the possibility that 007 (Daniel Craig) might actually be killed off at the end of No Time to Die, there's a far more surprising rumour doing the rounds which, if true, could majorly shake up Bond's characterisation.
The rumour states that, with the film taking place five years after Spectre, Bond will now have a five-year-old daughter with Madeleine Swann (Lea Seydoux).
After an apparent call sheet leaked from the movie's shoot referred to a five-year-old girl called Mathilde being featured in a scene with Madeleine, it's easy to believe that No Time to Die will indeed be giving Bond a child for the first time.
This would certainly up the stakes for 007's own survival, and lend a new emotional dimension to a character who has remained prickly and impenetrable throughout most of his cinematic tenure.
If true, hopefully it doesn't result in the villainous Safin (Rami Malek) kidnapping said daughter in the film's finale, because that would be stunningly lazy.
