    Bond 25 ‘will see actress Lashana Lynch take over from Daniel Craig to become first female 007

    "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.

    "It’s a popcorn-dropping moment. Bond is still Bond but he’s been replaced as 007 by this stunning woman."

    Waller-Bridge is determined to bring the franchise up to date and is tackling a number of 'issues' she felt existed with Bond

    "Bond, of course, is sexually attracted to the new female 007 and tries his usual seduction tricks, but is baffled when they don't work on a brilliant, young black woman who basically rolls her eyes at him and has no interest in jumping into his bed. Well, certainly not at the beginning."

    About time or an agenda out of control?

    I like Waller Bridge. She's a good writer but I will not be watching any Bond films with a female lead character.

    I'm all for having strong, female lead characters in films but not at the expense of changing an established character's gender for the Hell of it.

    What's next? Harriette Potter?

    Is she going to be gay as well? Might as well tick as many boxes as possible.

    Hang on. Read the article.

    She isn’t taking over the role of Bond, she’s taking his 007 code name.

    The Sun article literally says, Bond is still James Bond.

    James Bond has always been a man. With many major male roles changing to female it just seems to be a trend rather than anything else. Can’t say it really bothers me. Not watched a Bond film in 20 years and will be unlikely to change regardless of the cast.

  13. This is a bit more subtle than that though, as by the sounds of it Bond is still Bond, but the role of 007 has been reassigned.

    The Daniel Craig ones are generally rather good.

    She isn’t the new James Bond man.

  17. She needs to be in a wheelchair as well or at least have a scene that requires the immediate use of an accessible toilet as not all disabilities are visible.

    Effectively there’s very little difference between this situation and the one with Halle Berry then?
