CAPTAIN MARVEL Actress Lashana Lynch is Rumored Take on the Mantel of 007 in BOND 25
We don’t really know that much about what to expect from Bond 25, but a new rumor suggests that the mantle of 007 will be passed on to Captain Marvel actress Lashana Lynch. That would certainly be a big change for the franchise and I’m sure the fans will have a lot to say about it.
The new comes from The Daily Mail, but they don’t say if Lynch’s 007 character will replace Craig in the franchise moving forward. The reports does say however that “she's not the new Bond, but a new character who takes over his secret agent number after he leaves MI6.”
In Bond 25, “Bond has left active service and is enjoying a tranquil life in Jamaica. His peace is short-lived when his old friend Felix Leiter from the CIA turns up asking for help. The mission to rescue a kidnapped scientist turns out to be far more treacherous than expected, leading Bond onto the trail of a mysterious villain armed with dangerous new technology.” That technology will reportedly be based on genetic warfare.
There is some additional detail on how the character is introduced, and if you don’t want to know about it…
An insider for the outlet says that there’s “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.
“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.'“
The inside source also explained that the phrase 'Bond girls' is now forbidden, and adds, “we were all told that from now on they are to be addressed as 'Bond women'.'
Daniel Craig stars in the film and will also be joined by Ralph Fiennes as M, Naomie Harris as Moneypenny, Ben Whishaw as A, with Rory Kinnear as Tanner and Jeffrey Wright as Felix Leiter. New cast members include Dali Benssalah, Billy Magnussen, Ana De Arma, David Dencik, and Lashana Lynch. Christoph Waltz is also said to be returning as Blofeld.
Bond 25 is being directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga and is set to hit theaters on April 8th, 2020.
