    There is a lot of news in regards to this..

    According to various reports, British actress Lashana Lynch will play the character 007 in the latest James Bond movie "Bond 25" to be released in 2020..

    Now, this is news since the author of the James Bond character, Ian Fleming, when he created the 007 agent James Bond character for his books, was very particular in regards to what he wanted in the character James Bond -- White, British, Male, between 34 and 45 years of age.

    Granted, the 007 movie franchise will want to move on from the previous 007 actors, all played by white, Male actors and still want to be relevant going forward, so picking a Black, British, Female agent playing 007 would be something of gamble.

    Do you guys think this is a good move?

    fyi, Seven actors in total have portrayed Bond in film. Following Sean Connery's portrayal, David Niven, George Lazenby, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton, Pierce Brosnan and Daniel Craig have assumed the role.

    From what I've read Bonds retired and she is new 007. But he's still bond and in the movie.

    So unless there's a twist where he dies in opening credits (that would be....awesome) she's a glorified bond girl.

    Glorified Bond girl or not, If the franchise decides to have her be the main super spy 007 going forward, I just hope it is action packed and just as good as the previous movies. If not, it will fail big time..
