Actress Lashana Lynch Is the New 007 in the Upcoming James Bond’

Luke Dar­by writ­ing for GQ:

The James Bond fran­chise has been in need of a jolt for a while now, and there has long been spec­u­la­tion that once Daniel Craig steps down from the role, he could be replaced by Idris Elba […]

But in the upcom­ing install­ment, direct­ed by Cary Joji Fuku­na­ga of True Detec­tive, Bond is indeed get­ting replaced, not by Elba but by British actress Lashana Lynch…

Daniel Craig has been great as James Bond, no ques­tion. But I’m incred­i­bly excit­ed to see a com­plete­ly dif­fer­ent take on 007, and after see­ing Lashana Lynch in Cap­tain Mar­vel, I’m look­ing for­ward to see­ing her take over.
