The secrecy surrounding the upcoming James Bond movie is astounding. Nothing is known, not even the title of the film. But if the new reports from The Daily Mail are any indication then Bond 25 could very well bring about a watershed moment for the film franchise.
What Does The Report For Bond 25 State?
The report by The Daily Mail indicates that Lashana Lynch’s character in the movie will be a new MI6 agent. The surprising news is that she might ultimately succeed James Bond (Daniel Craig) in the 007 mantle. This would make the actress, who previously portrayed Maria Rambeau in Captain Marvel to be the first woman and person of color to take over the famous codename.It was previously revealed that Bond 25 will see Craig’s Bond coming out of retirement after M (Ralph Fiennes) calls on him to tackle a new global crisis. As a source reveals on the report, this is where Lynch’s version of 007 will come into play. The source said:
“There is a pivotal scene at the start of the film where M says ‘Come in 007’, and in walks Lashana who is black, beautiful and a woman. It’s a popcorn dropping moment. Bond is still Bond but he’s been replaced as 007 by this stunning woman.”
As for Bond, the source had this to say:“Bond, of course, is sexually attracted to the new female 007 and tries his usual seduction tricks, but is baffled when they don’t work on a brilliant young black woman who basically rolls her eyes at him and has no interest in jumping into his bed. Well, certainly not at the beginning.”
Bond 25 is expected to debut on April 8, 2020.
