Daniel Craig thinks 'Austin Powers' ruined the James Bond franchise.

The 44-year-old actor - who has played the British spy in two movies and recently finished filming the third, 'Skyfall' - believes the spoof film series starring Mike Myers ''f**ked'' the way the Bond series had worked at it had all been parodied so much.

He said: '''Austin Powers' f**ked it. By the time we did 'Casino Royale', the Mike Myers spoof had blown every joke apart.

''We were in a situation where you couldn't send things up. It had gone so far post-modern it wasn't funny any more.''

However, he does believe a sense of humour is very important to the Bond stories throughout the decades.

He told Esquire magazine: ''I think what's always fantastic about the Bond stories - and they have retained it, though they might have lost it for a while - is that there's always a darkness involved, but it's a darkness with a sense of humour. A black humour. It's about danger, but good danger, because you're in the hands of somebody who's saying, 'F**k you' to risk and, 'F**k you' to dying.''
