Lashana Lynch is set to become the new Agent 007

However, it is reported that though Craig will play Bond in Bond 25, Lynch will take over the code name

World, ready or not, we have a new Agent 007 in town. Lynch, Lashana Lynch, who recently played Maria Rambeau in Captain Marvel, will take over from Daniel Craig, who in the film retires as an Agent. Even prior to the beginning of the shoot, Craig had made it very clear that this was to be his last Bond film. While speculations were rife about who will step into his shoes, this latest update comes as a shocker, albeit a pleasant one. 

Names like Idris Elba and Richard Madden were in talks to take over the reins from Craig. However, it is reported that though Craig will play Bond in Bond 25, Lynch will take over the code name, and become the eighth actor to do so in the franchise, which began in 1962 with Dr No. 

Will sections of fans of the Bond franchise, who even took offense to Bond being played by a blonde man (Craig) take this groundbreaking news without a hue and cry? Or does it actually matter? Social media is abuzz with such polarising views, and it will just get louder when the official confirmation comes out.
