The cinematic Bond and Leiter meet for the first time in Dr. No, the first Bond film. The film version of Live and Let Die does not contain the sequence with the shark, and Leiter survives intact to help Bond again. Leiter's confrontation with the shark would later be used in Licence to Kill where he is fed to a shark by the villain Franz Sanchez. The film version of Leiter lost only one leg at the knee to the shark, although one arm was seriously injured. Although severely mutilated, Leiter would still remain alive. His newly-married wife, Della, is raped and murdered by Sanchez's henchmen. These atrocities would send Bond on a quest for vengeance, which forms the film's central plot. Dr. No is a 1962 spy film. ...

In more recent films the character of Jack Wade has appeared as the regular representative of the CIA, ostensibly because the producers did not want to feature a disabled Leiter. It is hinted in GoldenEye that he was friends with Leiter, though Leiter is never mentioned by name. Leiter appeared in the 2006 adaptation of Casino Royale, and due to the fact that the film is a reboot, Leiter once again works for the CIA with no mention of the shark encounter. This however would've been the case if it wasn't a reboot as Casino Royale is still a precursor to the other films chronologically, although a contradiction still occurs as he is now portrayed as a black man. This is where the reboot explanation would apply properly. Jack Wade is a fictional character in Pierce Brosnans first two James Bond films: GoldenEye and Tomorrow Never Dies. ...

While Leiter appears in a number of Bond films, he has almost always been played by different actors in each, and hence has not achieved the memorable status of other Bond characters such as M, Q and Miss Moneypenny. Leiter appears in nine films, played by eight different actors, who vary dramatically in age, physical characteristics and even race; for example, Leiter was portrayed as an African-American by Bernie Casey, in the unofficial Bond film Never Say Never Again and by Jeffrey Wright in the 2006 film Casino Royale.

David Hedison is the only actor to play Leiter more than once; he was recast in Licence to Kill having previously played the role in Live and Let Die. The producers decided that due to the events of that film, with the entire plot being driven by Leiter's crippling and Bond's resultant quest for revenge, the producers would need someone who was already established in the role to resonate with the audience.
