Actress Lashana Lynch has been cast as the new 007!
Now before you all start worrying that James will become Jane (not that I see a massive problem with this), that isn't what has actually happened. The reports you've been seeing on social media aren't too clear on the situation, so we dug a little deeper to help explain it a little better.
First things first, yes, Lashana Lynch (Still Star-Crossed and Captain Marvel) has been cast in Bond 25 (working title), but so has Daniel Craig. The rumours coming off the set has Bond retired and living in Jamaica, but is called back for one last mission and there is a scene where M (Ralph Fiennes) asks for 007 to enter the room and in walks Lashana. So the gist is: James Bond is still James Bond, but not 007.
I for one am quite interested in how this one will play out, I mean, is this some sort of experiment and by the closing credits James will have his digits back? Will Bond finally bite the bullet, die a hero's death and the series continues with Lynch? Only time will tell on this one, but for the first time in ages, I'm actually excited for a Bond film.
