Despite No Time To Die’s canonical flashback, Casino Royale marks the official start of Craig’s James Bond tenure. Casino Royale begins with Bond receiving his 00 status and earning his “License To Kill” after assassinating the traitorous Dryden and Fisher at the British Embassy in Prague. Casino Royale’s emotional Bond is then sent to Montenegro for a high-stakes Texas hold em’ tournament that will permanently shape who Bond becomes.
