Lashana Lynch is the new 007; She will take over the Bond movie: Despite the fact that Daniel Craig is set to return for his role as James Bond in the next film, the franchise is now all set for a transformation. There have been reports which claim that the black British actor Lashana Lynch is going to take over Bond’s secret agent number and has been cast as 007 after his character leaves M16.
For many years there has been extreme gossip about who would take over the wheels of one of the most long-lasting and profitable film franchises in history as soon as Craig stepped aside. Much of that guesswork has turned around whether the series may perhaps make a go-ahead in the direction of diversity and cast a person of color or a woman for the first time ever.
The sources 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 added, “It’s a popcorn-dropping moment. Bond is still Bond but he’s been replaced as 007.”
Initially, from West London, Lynch, 31, made her first film appearance in the year 2011 with Fast Girls, but her breakthrough role came previously this year in Captain Marvel as fighter pilot Maria Rambeau.
Bond’s famous code name being given to Lashana Lynch has been extensively acclaimed on social media, coming weeks after US singer Halle Bailey was cast in Disney’s live action as Ariel in the remake of the Little Mermaid.
As per to the report, the forthcoming, 25th Bond film which is yet to be titled, is going to disclose Lynch as the new 007 with Craig’s character approaching out of departure for one last mission.
Bond himself is still going to be played by Daniel Craig and will still stick to his old-fashioned masculine characteristics, as per to a source told the UK paper.
‘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,” a source told the Mail.
Londoner Lynch is expected to reform the franchise criticized by many as being too dated and sexist.
“This is a Bond for the modern era who will appeal to a younger generation while sticking true to what we all expect in a Bond film,” the source said.
“There are spectacular chase sequences and fights, and Bond is still Bond but he’s having to learn to deal with the world of #MeToo.”
Actress and writer, Waller-Bridge is cited in the Daily Mail as saying, “There’s been a lot of talk about whether or not Bond is relevant now because of who he is and the way he treats women. I think that’s bollocks. I think he’s absolutely relevant now.
“[The franchise] has just got to grow. It has just got to evolve, and the important thing is that the film treats the women properly. He doesn’t have to. He needs to be true to his character.”
