RUMOR: Bond 25 will pass on the 007 codename to Lashana Lynch

Given what we already know about the 25th James Bond movie, specifically the line “In Bond 25, Bond has left active service and is enjoying a tranquil life in Jamaica” from the official synopsis, this new rumor makes a lot of sense; however, we must stress that it is in fact a rumor, and must be taken with a grain of salt.

The Daily Mail reports that in the new Bond movie, the mantle of 007, the codename given to Bond while working MI6, has been passed on to a new character played by Captain Marvel star Lashana Lynch. Though Lynch’s character will reportedly take on the 007 codename for the film, the report does not say Lynch’s character is replacing Craig in the franchise moving forward.

We won’t go into the specifics of how it works or what the report suggests will happen in the film, you can read it for yourself by clicking here, but will note that this development reportedly stems from screenwriter Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s contributions to the film.

Confirmed cast members returning for the film include Daniel Craig as James Bond, Ralph Fiennes as M, Lea Seydoux (Spectre), Naomie Harris as Moneypenny, Ben Whishaw as A, with Rory Kinnear as Tanner and Jeffrey Wright as Felix Leiter. New cast members confirmed for the film include Dali Benssalah, Billy Magnussen, Ana De Arma, David Dencik, Lashana Lynch, and Rami Malek.

Cary Joji Fukunaga will direct the film which features a script written by Neal Purvis & Robert Wade, Scott Z. Burns with Cary Joji Fukunaga and Phoebe Waller-Bridge.

EON Productions and Metro Goldwyn Mayer Studios have partnered with Universal Pictures on the worldwide release of the 25th James Bond film. The superspy’s previous outing, Spectre, opened in U.S. theaters on November 16, 2015. The film earned $200 million domestically and $680.6 million internationally, for a worldwide total of $880.7 million.

The still-untitled Bond 25 is due to hit theaters on April 8, 2020.
