Spoiler alert

Has a huge James Bond twist in No Time to Die been leaked? | Radio Times

"No Time to Die director Cary Fukunaga has also confirmed that the film takes place five years after the events of Spectre, with Bond having left active service. We know, both from the trailer and the movie’s official synopsis, that he takes up retirement in Jamaica, where he is approached by his old ally, CIA officer Felix Leiter, to undertake a rescue mission and save a kidnapped scientist.

All of which leads us back to the plot details apparently leaked by those call sheets: they reveal details of scene #235 of No Time to Die, a sequence that we can assume from that numbering takes place towards the end of the film. Again shot in Italy, near Maratea Port, this scene is said to have featured Madeleine, Nomi – a 00 agent played by Captain Marvel’s Lashana Lynch – and one other character…

The third person in the scene is a 5-year-old girl, Mathilde, with the scene description for scene #235 reading as follows: “Nomi pilots Madeleine and Mathilde to safety with island in the background.”

The fact that Mathilde’s age corresponds exactly with the five-year gap between Spectre and No Time to Die has led fans to suspect that she might be Bond and Madeleine’s daughter, with Dr. Swan falling pregnant during the couple’s honeymoon period.

If we assume that scenes of a smitten Bond and Madeleine take place earlier in the timeline with the movie then jumping ahead half a decade – with Bond drowning his sorrows in Jamaica following their messy break-up – then it’s possible he didn’t know Madeleine was pregnant, or indeed that neither of them knew, when they parted ways.

James Bond becoming a father might sound like a surprising route for the spy franchise to take, but this being Daniel Craig’s swansong, it’s not impossible that his era could end with him embracing family life and rebuilding the Bond dynasty – there’d be a certain poetry to this turn of events given that the climax to 2012’s Skyfall literally saw him tear his childhood home to the ground. Alternatively, maybe the death rumours are true and 007 will tragically perish having saved the daughter he never knew."
