@TiniTinyTony Or we can simply note that Lashana Lynch is NOT the next James Bond. She simply is the next 007 or was planned to be. The Broccolis have made it very clear that James Bond will always be a male character, however, the title of being 007 can switch off between male and female characters. I actually thought for a long time a great trilogy would be have M being 007 as a young spy and then once she gets promoted to be the head of MI6 she goes out and recruits her replacement...a hard drinking British Naval guy who is a orphan and knows how to fight, James Bond. @SithLordDarthRichie That rumor was started by a bunch of white misogynists with small "fill in the blanks" and I think has been pretty strongly debunked including the director obviously. The other rumor though looks to be pretty accurate so far especially considering the title and what we saw in the trailer.
