First topic message reminder :

Daniel Craig retains title role but 25th instalment in the franchise reveals codename has been reassigned to British actor Lashana Lynch

While Daniel Craig is set to reprise his role as James Bond in the next film, the franchise is set for a shake-up, with reports claiming that black British actor Lashana Lynch has been cast as 007 – taking over Bond’s secret agent number after his character leaves M16.

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

Originally from West London, Lynch, 31, made her film debut in 2011’s Fast Girls, but her breakthrough role came earlier this year, as fighter pilot Maria Rambeau in Captain Marvel.

The news of her being given Bond’s famous code name has been widely praised on social media, coming weeks after US singer Halle Bailey was cast as Ariel in Disney’s live action remake of the Little Mermaid.

There were very good operatives that were female in fact they tended to be more successful than male operatives for many reasons. The top agent in occupied France was female and extremely successful evading capture. The James Bond character is a well established character of a type. Personally I don't mind who they have although I agree with Syl
in her choice of Idris Elba.

Since when was james Bond a historical character?
Really silly reply, considering you are going off now historical characters where none have even have been played by females or likely ever to do so. So if you think female SOE operatives were excellent, what is the issue with a secret agent women playing 007?

Read my reply again Didge
Didn't say he was an historical character, the rest is jocular or so I hoped. You may remember jokes, funny remarks or asides, might not be side spliting humour I agree but I try.

You went off histrical charcters as if they would be changed to females not matter whether it was in a joking manner, you werre trying to express an absurd point that has zero bearing to this situation

Well, why make a whataboutism view point on historical characters, when James Bond is fiction?

You claim it as a joke, but even jokes and satire can have double meanings to express a point do they not?

Catch you later

I have it on very good authority that Angelina Jolie has been chosen for the lead role in the new film biography of Barack Obama, and that Wesley Snipes will play Margaret Thatcher in the new biopic "The Lady Got Turned".....

Didge, whenever you intervene in what is intended to be light hearted discussion, it usually develops into something about as amusing as an interrogation by a tax inspector suffering from a bad bout of irritable bowel syndrome.

Its not much of a stretch to change the gender of an historic figure in a film, if the revisionist movement is already trying to change historical facts as far as we know them in reality. Its not like the film industry is shy of a few changes of location, nationality and actual facts is it. U - 571 for one, the Memphis Belle was not the first B17 to complete 25 missions it was the Hot Stuff, aren't the people involved in these original happenings historical figures or soon to be,
although not as well known as Henry Vlll and co.

Indeed, I am your friend Didge.

The red thing is pointless. It used to take away points, so at least that was meaningful. But now it's just as easy to put your disapproval in words.

Also, when you do a red thing, the 1 hour freeze kicks in (I forget what you call it, swamp control or something). So if you find a post you do like, you can't register your approval.
