James Bond is a franchise that has lived throughout many decades, and as such it has changed a lot since its inception. Attitudes and trends have changed drastically since Sean Connery became the first Bond, and now with Daniel Craig finishing up his run as Bond, we're sure to see the character and flavor of Bond evolve even more down the road. Even the first Bond was an evolution, however.
