After much speculation and a roster of highly-debated choices for James Bond’s successor, the franchise is introducing the most unexpected 007 of all: a black woman named Lashana Lynch.

If your first thought was “Who?” you’re not alone. 

A source told the Daily Mail on July 14 that, in what they describe as a “popcorn-dropping moment,” the British actress will be passed the 007 mantle in the upcoming 25th Bond film installment. 

The film will feature a “pivotal scene” in which James Bond, still played by Daniel Craig, is called back from retirement and introduced to this young, stunning woman. But what unfolds is not what Bond, nor what viewers, expect. 

Check out this gallery to learn more about how the franchise hopes to modernize the classic tale that has been criticized as being dated and sexist, and find out just who the 007 successor is.
