Black Woman Cast as New 007

I'm sure she got the job because she's the best fit for the part. 

I think this could be really good. She’s not playing the Bond role but just assuming the 007 code name after Bond retires. For me Phoebe Waller Bridge can do no wrong so I’m pretty excited for this.

007 was based on a Canadian to begin with. So it was always a fraud, heritage wise. Canada is about trans racial, trans anything. A lot of folks dont know that Jordan Peterson is trans species having once been a frog not unlike Kermit.

Whereas I have it on good authority that Mitch McConnell used to be a turtle.

So will she take over Bond's place? I guess any future stories can't be based on the Ian Fleming books since his Bond is all male.

I guess a woman can be a 007 agent, so we'll see.

I do like Daniel Craig as Bond. I think he did well.

I could be wrong. But it sounds like it's going to be something somewhat similar to The Spy Who Love Me. A team featuring James Bond and a woman who is also a spy. In this case both British working in a case together. And the woman is the new 007

Seems fine to me, it's not like they're saying "James Bond has biologically transformed sexually and racially" (in which case, I would be like "this is a load of shite"). If he's retired as part of the plot (which basically he threatens to do after every mission, reluctance is a bit of a hallmark of his character), his number could be given to anyone, I see no issue.

Well, yeah, this is the problem that James Bond as he was conceived, written and portrayed in the mid-to-late 20th Century doesn't really have much relevance today. I loved those movies as a wee boy and always looked at Bond as a hero, but when I grew up myself, I realised he's actually not that great a guy and I still don't think they've adequately addressed his attitude to women as completely disposable in any of the more recent films.

I'm rooting for them making these movies as woke as possible. I won't be satisfied until 007 is a Cambodian transgender muslim with dwarfism.

“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,” the source said. “It’s a popcorn-dropping moment. Bond is still Bond but he’s been replaced as 007.”

click bait article.

She will just pull Bond out of retirement in Jamaica, so they are entirely different characters.

I won't be calling her beautiful though.

she's no serena williams, that's for sure.

But that's ok. Every man to his taste, as the old woman said when she kissed the cow.

Beauty isn't about the colour of your skin.

She's average looking, I don't think she will end up in bed with Bond.

Maybe she'll be a little too uppity for him eh? :lol: 

Also isn't not ending up in bed with Bond kind of the point? :shrugs:

Halle Berry's returning for another go at James is she, an insatiable cougar she is!. As for a black woman playing 007, females playing iconic male roles have been a success thus far no?

That's a new character for that film though isn't it? Nothing wrong with strong female characters I wouldn't want a man to play Ripley for instance...trying to gender swap iconic characters is just a bad idea.

Nobody is gender swapping characters. Read the story properly. Bond is still Bond. She’s just taking over the code name.

The problem is that Hollywood turned James Bond into some kind of Terminator. James Bond is not about explotions and special effects. Bond could be relevant again if the movies are about a British spy in Hong Kong fighting the current Chinese regime. Or fighting terrorist networks in the Middle East.

Thing is though, it doesn't make sense. From what I know the numbers are identifiers of individual agents. There have been mentions of a 008 and 009. So when an agent dies or retires, does the number also retire? Or is it just assigned to a different agent? Should this new agent just be 016 or whatever?
