According to a report published on Sunday, fans of James Bond who want 007 to be black or female are going to get a double surprise: the spy of the film will be played by a black woman.
British actress Lashana Lynch, 31, will be presented as the new 007 in what is described as a "popcorn drop" in the 25th film of the franchise that is currently being filmed, according to the Mail on Sunday.
But it is not a complete repetition, since she has just taken the number of James Bond's secret agent after she leaves MI6, according to the report.
The same Bond will still be played by Daniel Craig, and will continue to respect its old-fashioned macho characteristics, a source told the UK newspaper.
Bond, of course, is sexually attracted to the new 007 woman and tries his usual seduction tricks, but is baffled when they do not work on a bright young black woman who basically rolls her eyes and has no interest in jumping . in his bed, "said a source in the mail.
The connoisseur called it a "fundamental scene" when Bond retires from retirement and introduces Lynch as the new 007.
"It's a moment of falling popcorn, Bond is still Bond, but this impressive woman has replaced him as 007," the source told the Post.
It is expected that the Londoner Lynch, who played the fighter pilot Maria Rambeau in "Captain Marvel," modernize the franchise criticized by many for being too old-fashioned and sexist.
"This is a Bond for the modern era that will attract a younger generation and remain true to what we all expect in a Bond film," the source said.
"There are spectacular chase sequences and fights, and Bond is still Bond, but he has to learn to deal with the world of #MeToo."
