Is it a safe assumption that with the Lashana Lynch thing, 007 and the new Bond will be two separate things? Or do we think they'll just pretend Lashana Lynch never happened or something? I've never really paid attention to what they do when they replace Bond; is it like all the different Spider-Mans we've seen in the past decade where it's just a hard reset?
Edit: Also, am I crazy for thinking Daniel Kaluuya would be a good Bond?
To me it sounds like Bond retiring is more of a novel Bond plot thing than an actual pivot for the series. It seems more like they're setting it up to potentially spin her off if the response is good rather than keeping her in line as a replacement for Bond. Lots of things they could do. Would be cool, for instance, to spin her off into her own series, keeping the continuity from Craig's stuff, with him popping in from time to time, but then doing like period pieces, Bond doing some **** in the 80s or whatever, with a younger actor.
Maybe they have already done this! I do not watch the Bonds.
