丹尼尔·克雷格的最后一部《007》电影已经开拍，但是关于下一任邦德人选的争论却一直在继续。此前曾有猜测称“抖森”汤姆·希德勒斯顿有望出演下一任邦德，不过没有了下文。近日，据外媒报道，克雷格的接班人将在新片中亮相，邦德依然是邦德，但007却要换人了。新任007会是谁呢？Actors Lea Seydoux, Ana de Armas, Daniel Craig, Naomie Harris and Lashana Lynch pose for a picture during a photocall for the British spy franchise's 25th film set for release next year, titled "Bond 25" in Oracabessa, Jamaica April 25, 2019.

Since Daniel Craig announced he was standing down as James Bond, debate has raged whether the next 007 should be a woman, or black.
Now The Mail on Sunday can reveal that she will be both – thanks to the intervention of feminist TV writer Phoebe Waller-Bridge.
In what's been called a 'popcorn-dropping moment', British star Lashana Lynch, will be given Bond's licence to kill in the 25th movie in the franchise, currently being shot in Italy and the UK.

However, traditionalists can relax: she's not the new Bond, but a new character who takes over his secret agent number after he leaves MI6.
The story begins with Bond retired in Jamaica. But spymaster M – played by Ralph Fiennes – calls him back in desperation to tackle a new global crisis.
A movie insider said: '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.
'It's a popcorn-dropping moment. Bond is still Bond but he's been replaced as 007 by this stunning woman.
'Bond, of course, is sexually attracted to the new female 007 and tries his usual seduction tricks, but is baffled when they don't work on a brilliant, young black woman who basically rolls her eyes at him and has no interest in jumping into his bed. Well, certainly not at the beginning.'
The source added that the phrase 'Bond girls' is now forbidden, saying: 'We were all told that from now on they are to be addressed as 'Bond women'.'
Waller-Bridge, who wrote the BBC comedy Fleabag and the female-led thriller Killing Eve, was recruited to ensure the 57-year-old franchise moved with the times. She said: 'There's been a lot of talk about whether or not Bond is relevant now because of who he is and the way he treats women.
'I think that's b******s. I think he's absolutely relevant now. [The franchise] has just got to grow. It has just got to evolve, and the important thing is that the film treats the women properly. He doesn't have to. He needs to be true to his character.' “我觉得这些都是无稽之谈。他当然应该留下。这部系列电影只不过是需要继续发展演化。关键在于这部电影对待女性的态度是正确的。邦德则无需改变，他必须忠于自己的性格。”
Ms Lynch, 31, had a breakthrough role as the fighter pilot Maria Rambeau in Captain Marvel, released earlier this year.
Originally from Hammersmith, West London, she made her debut in the 2011 film Fast Girls, has appeared in Silent Witness and Death In Paradise and was a regular cast member on the short-lived 2015 BBC show Crims. She also played Rosaline Capulet in the American period drama series Still Star-Crossed, set after the deaths of Romeo and Juliet.
The source said: 'Lashana is absolutely brilliant and Phoebe's script is as sharp and funny as you would expect. This Bond pays tribute to some of the earlier films with a lot of humour.'
Indeed, one photograph taken on set shows Ms Lynch in a safari suit similar to the one Roger Moore famously wore when he played 007.
'This is a Bond for the modern era who will appeal to a younger generation while sticking true to what we all expect in a Bond film,' the source added. 'There are spectacular chase sequences and fights, and Bond is still Bond but he's having to learn to deal with the world of #MeToo.'
So hopefully the script will be the least of the problems for a film that has already been hit by the replacement of original director Danny Boyle, injury to Craig, and a crew member getting hurt in an explosion on set.
