This has already been thought up before. A long time ago people were saying this would be like Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. Initially I thought this was an ok idea, but truth be told I don't really like it all that much for in the long run. Bond does not age. Otherwise you gotta make this a partial period piece and that doesn't make any [censored]ing sense. So Cavil is Bond at 28. Considering Bond is supposed to be late 30's - Brosnan's case at best early 40s, that means this period takes place in the early 1990s maybe 1980s. How do you then explain Dr. No - lets say A View to a Kill? How do you explain Bond-22? Will Cavill continue on - forever stuck in the late 80s/early 90s? Will Bond be a new guy totally?
That said, considering all the rumors and reports, this outcome is pretty likely. It actually makes sense in that respect. Take all the rumors into account (even guys like Ewan - older version of Le Chiffre possibly).
If they're going to go the young Bond route, I guess I'd rather take this than Bond-22 being a Rookie+1 adventure. Not a bad idea, I've seen/heard worse. I'd just like to know how it all plays out after this film.
