O-M-G: first Ariel, now James (Jeannine?) Bond!

The alt-right is gonna go ape shit over this:

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 MI6.
The new 007 is a black woman – don't make her a Bond girl
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.”



  1. lol! Could care less, other than to comment that I wonder why they didn't go with a Hindi or Pakistani female....

    ...only to answer that they needed, for political purposes, to go to the top of the "intersectional" charts of coolness...

    1. Oh but they'll use the Hindi or Pakistani females to play the terrorists! ;-)

    2. I need to add it to my watch list.

      I think that it probably is true that the more you are forced to defend a position, the more likely you will come to adopt it as your own. Although I would say that I often maintain the false hope that the original adopters of the position have my reasons for adopting it... like when Bush invaded Iraq. Had he adopted my position, Moqtada al Sadr would have been our best friend, and Iran would be under our control today.

    3. Entrenchment leads to absurdities, see e.g. Dem 'open borders' position.
