After much speculation around the new actor who will replace Daniel Craig as the new British spy Agent 007, the buck has stopped with Lashana Lynch. She is said to have taken over the secret agent number from Craig's Bond in the upcoming Bond 25. British actress Lynch portrayed the role of a fighter pilot Maria Rambeau in Brie Larson's Captain Marvel (2019) .

The Daily Mail (via theguardian.com) has quoted from an anonymous “movie insider”, who says that the 25th film opens with Bond (Craig), retired in Jamaica, being called back to action to fight a new villain.

“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," the source revealed.

This basically implies that Craig will return as James Bond in Bond 25, but will have a new code number.

Another website reported that screenwriter Phoebe Waller-Bridge intervened in the matter and decided to pass on the torch of Agent 007 to Lynch. When asked during a previous interview if Bond was still a relevant character in the modern 21st century era, Waller-Bridge had said (via screenrant.com), "I think he's absolutely relevant now. [The franchise] has just got to grow. It has just got to evolve, and the important thing is that the film treats the women properly. He doesn't have to. He needs to be true to his character."

Directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga, Bond 25 is set to release in 2020.
