'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 told The Mail. 'It’s a popcorn-dropping moment. Bond is still Bond but he’s been replaced as 007'

Daniel Craig will reprise his role as James Bond in the 25th Bond movie, but the franchise will also meet a new 007. Reportedly, British actor Lashana Lynch is taking over Bond’s secret agent number after his character leaves MI6.

According to a quote given to The Mail by an anonymous "movie insider," the film will open with Bond (Craig), retired in Jamaica, being called back to action to fight a new villain.

“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 told The Mail. “It’s a popcorn-dropping moment. Bond is still Bond but he’s been replaced as 007.”

31-years old Lynch is originally from West London, and made her debut in 2011's Fast Girls. However her breakthrough role is considered to be fighter pilot Maria Rambeau in Captain Marvel.

This news has been widely accepted, and appreciated in social media, following the casting of US singer Halle Bailey as Ariel in Disney's live action remake of The Little Mermaid.

 The 25th Bond film has been mired in difficulties, beginning in October 2015 when Craig said he would “rather slash my wrists” than play the secret agent again.

In 2017, the actor finally said that he relented from his stance about playing the role, but the same year, then director of the film, Danny Boyle – who had been brought in to replace Sam Mendes, after he refused to direct any more films from the franchise – also left, citing a dispute over the screenplay.

American director Cary Fukunaga was hired to replace them, and the film cycled through a series of script writers before Craig himself requested Fleabag’s Phoebe Waller-Bridge – only the second female writer in the history of the franchise – be brought in to polish it up.

Waller-Bridge told the Daily Mail: “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.”

Bond producer Barbara Broccoli told the Guardian last year that there would “never” be a female Bond.
