The James Bond franchise is about to get some girl power, and it's about time. Say hello to British actress, Lashana Lynch. It has been confirmed that she will be Bond's replacement as 007 in the upcoming film, code name: Bond 25. This counts as Lynch's next big step after starring as Captain Marvel’s best friend, Rambeau, in Marvel’s Captain Marvel film.
Subverting to outdated Bond girl trope, it's a welcome change and a triumph for females everywhere. A grown-up and sleeker version of Kim Possible is something that we never thought would happen, but we're so glad it did.
Since the last film, Bond is officially retired from MI6. So there was much anticipation as to who the next super spy was going to be. But who better than a woman that's already starred in an action-packed film like Captain Marvel. Only this time, she's taking centre-stage.
