The person who will play James Bond in the next installment of the famous franchise has been announced, and the choice is a genuinely shocking one. As Fox News reports:
The next James Bond film will show the secret agent pass the torch — and fans of the Ian Fleming-inspired franchise are in for a shock as to which star gets the latest license to kill.
Reports claim that the next Agent 007 will be played by British actress Lashana Lynch.
Lynch, 31, had a breakout role in “Captain Marvel” as Maria Rambeau, the titular superhero’s best friend and fellow Air Force pilot…
“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,” a Bond insider claimed. “It’s a popcorn-dropping moment. Bond is still Bond but he’s been replaced as 007 by this stunning woman.”
Will audiences be ready for this radical change in casting? Or has Hollywood gone too far?
