The internet may have wanted a Black Bond, or a female Bond, but it looks like we’re getting both. And neither.

Lashana Lynch has been tapped to play the new 007 in the upcoming Bond 25 film, the Independent reports. While Lynch, who recently played Maria Rambeau opposite Brie Larson in Captain Marvel, will reportedly be playing the new agent 007, the character James Bond is still expected to be portrayed by Daniel Craig.

“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,” an insider told the Daily Mail.

she's black...don't care
she's beautiful....don't care
she's the new 007...THE FUCK?!

007 is a man.....always has been since the inception. ian fleming wrote the character as such back in 1952. 007's name is james bond.

sean connery (the original bond...my mom's favorite actor...and the man i was named after)
david niven
george lazenby
roger moore
timothy dalton
pierce brosnan
daniel craig
*barry nelson (although he technically played the first bond, i don't count this one since he didn't play bond in any movies; just in a tv adaptation of casino royale)

i don't know why they gotta mess with history and change shit just to be "up with whatever current social agenda crap is going on" so they can be seen as "non-offensive" and "non-sexist". somebody's always gonna have a problem with something....no matter who it is or what it is.

OKay! I can see Dr. Who being a female, But how in the world could you see Bond as a female? Him being black or whatever doesn't bother me.

In May, industry sources revealed “intimacy coaches” had been hired on the set of the new Bond movie. “Bond 25” producers hired the consultants to ensure that the stars – including new Bond girl Ana De Armas – felt empowered, according to a report in The Sun. A “film insider” explained that the move was part of an effort to get #MeToo compliant.

Not even going to rent that. I do have VPN and can live a pirate life if I do get curious. And I like a good train wreck so I may suddenly decide to watch it. I honestly don't mind changing things when it makes sense and happens in a way that doesn't seem forced. But everything today is forced. Waiting on the Transgendered, Black, Disabled Superman that I just know is coming.

For what 007 does when he clashes with bad guys (physical fights), I find it difficult to believe a female in the role. 007 is known for seducing women. Now 007 will be a slut. I'm all for equal rights, but this continues the rediculous trend of male roles turning to female. A manhole is a manhole.

Well... the blurbs that I have read mentioned that a beautiful black woman plays the part.
The lady has eyebrows like Eugene Levy.

One thing is that 007 is only the 7th best man? How is this going be explain as the next will be a woman.
