Lashana Lynch is the New Age 007

Black women are known for breaking records and changing stereotypes. From Hannah Beachler and Ruth E. Carter being the first black women to win Academy Awards for best costume and production design to three black women holding titles for Miss America, Miss USA, and Miss Teen USA simultaneously. But the entertainment industry has become the place for black women to shine. Beyoncé landing her $60 million deal with Netflix, Regina King winning her first Oscar to Hallie Bailey being casted as Ariel in the Little Mermaid. And as of recent news, it seems even the iconic 007 is getting a new persona.

 

The 25th installment of the James Bond franchise entitled Bond 25 is set to release April 2020. While Daniel Craig, who has held the title of Bond since 2006 appearing in 4 of the franchise movies, will still be Bond as he will be passing on the torch— 007 is not only becoming a woman but a black woman. Lashana Lynch, a 31-year-old British actress, has starred in Shonda Rhimes ABC drama Still Star-Crossed and took Hollywood by storm as Maria Rambeau in Marvel’s Captain Marvel.

 

Lynch will not be taking on the role as Bond but instead a new added character who takes on the code-name 007. According to writer Phoebe Waller-Bridge, a new 007 isn’t the only change coming to the Bond franchise. Small things such as changing the name of Bond Girls to Bond Women is one of the franchise notable differences. But even with the changes, she notes that James Bond will still be James Bond.
