Bond 25 title not revealed to be Shatterhand! (updated) D:

Alas, not Shatterhand after all (per the Broccoli update posted downthread).

As it happens, someone (Monitor Blown) has already written a spec theme for it, too (though not officially?)



It's an....... eclectic song. But not as eclectic as Another Way To Die, so there's that.  >:D

(I actually like what AWTD was going for; it was just way too overproduced in goofy ways.)

Fun trivia: while Shatterhand is a Bond villain alias, Ian Fleming got the name from a German western hero, or more specifically from a bar named after this literary hero. There have been at least three films made in the mid 60s featuring "Old Shatterhand", played by Lex Parker. (These can be found several places to watch for free. According to Wiki, there are 7 such films!)

While Shatterhand was the German hero, the novels were usually named after Winnetou, the Apache chief who befriends him. These early pulp novels from the 1880s are often regarded as an inspiration on the Lone Ranger and Tonto later!

Apparently.

Barbara Broccoli herself took the time to debunk the title.

I actually got excited when I saw the "Shatterhand" title, considering the true identity of that character in You Only Live Twice.
