It’s been reported that Lashana Lynch will be the new 007 in the next Bond film.
News has spread that Lashana Lynch is set to be the new star in the next Bond film. According to The Mail on Sunday, Lynch will be introduced as the new 007 in the franchise’s 25th movie that is currently being filmed.
Lashana is most known for her recent work as Maria Rambeau in Captain Marvel.
The source told The Mail on Sunday:
There is a pivotal scene at the start of the film where M [played by Ralph Fiennes] 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.
Lashana won’t be “James Bond”, but she will be known as the new 007.
Wow. Lashana Lynch is the next 007. She’s not playing Bond, but will take over the code name. Brava, Phoebe Waller-Bridge for ushering in a new era where WoC can lead a spy series, like Sandra Oh in #KillingEve. H/t @iamlaurenp https://t.co/qcSpMHF2zR

Lashana’s agent name in the new 007 movie will be “Nomi”.
First we got a Black Ariel.
Now we're getting a Black Woman 007.

007 is going to be a BLACK WOMAN. I am screaming! Not just because it's bound to be amazing being written by Phoebe Waller-Bridge. But also because some of the racists out there are barely off life-support after finding out The Little Mermaid is going to be black. A whole gag. pic.twitter.com/xK1Qn22DiX

Remember when people said they didn’t want Idris Elba as the next holder for the code name 007 because he was black? I wonder how they’re feeling now pic.twitter.com/hZYf9yMJrK
