It’s being reported by The Daily Mail that we will see a new 007 in the now shooting Bond 25. Daniel Craig will still star as a retired James Bond and we will be introduced to the next 007 played by ‘Captain Marvel’ star Lashana Lynch.
This introduction is reportedly due to the script rewrites by Phoebe Waller-Bridge, who made her name with ‘Fleabag’ and ‘Killing Eve’.
Although this news is bound to anger the Internet and upset purists it’s a smart way to update the franchise and not alter the Bond character. Also, introducing other 00s could open the door to a MI6 cinematic universe. That being said, we don’t know what Lynch’s commitment to the film is. There is a good chance that she won’t make it past the pre-credit sequence and could just be fridged to bring Bond out of retirement.
