Upcoming James bond movie, Bond 25 will be seeing a plot twist as avengers actress Lashana Lynch’s character, will be taking up the coveted code name 007.
Reports states that this development is as a result of makers of the franchise looking into giving a creative twist to the plot of the movie. Daniel Craig will be playing his pivotal role as James Bond, but will be replaced as Agent 007 by Lynch’s character.
The Daily Mail reports that, at the start of Bond 25, Bond is enjoying retirement. But it’s only a matter of time before he’s called back into the fray, and once he’s there, he meets the woman who’s replaced him.
“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,” the source said. “It’s a popcorn-dropping moment. Bond is still Bond but he’s been replaced as 007.”
Writer and creator of the hit move franchise Phoebe Waller-Bridge intends to change the film around him. “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,” Waller-Bridge previously said, per the Mail. “I think that’s bullshit. 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.”
Reassigning his code name to Lynch seems like a great place to start.
Lashana has been in the entertainment industry for a while but got her major break in the recent Marvel’s movie ‘Captain Marvel’ playing ‘Maria Rambeau’.
