Getting initial reports through that the next James Bond will be a female (not sure how the whole name thing is going to work) and will be played by Lashana Lynch who you will recognise as the black female pilot from Captain Marvel who was her best bud.

I think this is a false report. The 'insider' would not revel all that info surely.

However as I read it she would be the new 007 and not James Bond. As 007 is just a title, so anyone could bee the next 007.

My bad and misinterpretation. For me James Bond and 007 are synonymous with one another.

I agree with you there, but being a 00 agent status can always be passed to other agents, whether it's 006 or any other.

Yeah l read that as l have my doubts as to whether there is any truth to it personally although saying that l am certainly not against having a female 007.

although I can think of people better suited to the role it would be good to have a relative unknown rather than a "oh look it's Beatrice from bla bla film".

Yeah, it's not a big deal. She is '007' - probably not for long - but Bond is still Bond. If anything it makes it less likely they'll recast the next Bond as a woman since it establishes a precedent where Bond still exists outside of the 007 number. (One of the theories into how you get a female Bond is that 'James Bond' is itself a codename applied to whoever is 007).

People are making too big a deal of it. Either to manufacture outrage at 'PC culture' or to say it heralds a dramatic change in having a black woman as 007. In reality, she'll probably be 'fridged' early on to provide Bond with a plot point and thus continuing the Bond franchise's dodgy history with female characters.

I didn't check this years thread and the teaser only dropped yesterday. Didn't realise they first had it slated for a November release.

Good news, Growing up I loved V and watched it over and over again. Apparently plans have been in the works for a movie for quite some time and it looks like they are gaining traction because the project has been assigned a producer. I hope they honour the original and just use updated weapons (i.e. not M16s) and new special effects.

Spider-Man leaves MCU: https://www.cbr.com/sony-kills-spide...l-with-marvel/

Quote:

Marvel Studios will not produce any future Spider-Man films due to a standoff between The Walt Disney Company and Sony Pictures.
This means the next Spiderman will not be made by Marvel which also means:
  • No Spiderman in Avengers
  • No Avengers in Spiderman or any other Marvel character

Re: Movie news, trivia and other snippets
 
Well that totally sucks.

We probably won't get the sequel to Far from Home for a start. Just when Marvel got Spidey spot on. .

General Maximus 20-08-2019 23:43

Re: Movie news, trivia and other snippets
 
yeah it sucks ass, they need to work something out and get things sorted. You can't not have Spidey in anymore Avengers films; he is an established character and they haven't even had chance to write him out. I can understand Marvel wanting more $$$ because the Spiderman films are clearly all Marvel and if they move to Sony-produced they are going to lose the touch and feel of the MCU and will be carp.




A few other titbits of info:

Matrix 4 has been confirmed with Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Ann Moss

Title for the next James Bond has been revealed............. No Time To Die
