    I find Lynch very attractive. Tall and striking, with an incredible voice, she carries herself very confidently, so much so, in the little I've seen of her in NTTD ads and trailers, I can't keep my eyes off of her.

    She's quite sultry as she struts by in the night club scene, and a sense of good humoured cockiness when she's in the Aston, pulling the sunglasses down and raising eyebrows at Bond.

    Am I the only one, lol?!?!

    I think she seems very cool.

    I honestly think it has to do with Lynch not being beautiful enough. And nothing to do with the colour of her skin. Harris wasn't lambasted as the first black Moneypenny, if I can remember. Not just because she knew how to act, but because she was beautiful. And because she was beautiful, nobody complained when she shot Bond. Just imagine what would have been, if Nomi shot Bond.

    As shallow as it sounds, I think you are probably on to something. It makes me wonder what might have happened had the more traditionally beautiful Lupita Nyong'o been cast as originally intended, before the delays made her unavailable.

    Shallow? Not at all; it’s just human nature. Who would a majority of women find more attractive, Brad Pitt or someone like Ron Perlman or a less obvious Michael Shannon.

    I don’t think Lynch’s character is meant to be ogled at like a traditional Bond babe. She was cast to play convincing 00 agent badass, not someone that’s expected to win a wet t-shirt contest.

    Or is EVERY female in Bond supposed to look like a supermodel unless they’re Bunt or Klebb? I see a lot of fans have trouble grasping that, which is why I’ve seen suggestions like how Lynch should have been a henchwoman and that Ana de Armas should have been the new 007. Because Ana has more supermodel looks that makes her more “acceptable” in fans’ eyes.

    I basically agree with what you’re saying, although the wet tee shirt comments is a bit ludicrous. No, not every Bond girl/woman needs to look like a supermodel, but like spectacular locations, impressive stunts, a great score and more, beautiful women are part of the appeal; obviously all of these are subjective.

    Beautiful women are part of the appeal, and we’ve already got Ana de Armas and Lea Seydoux. Why does having Lynch cast ruin that?

    Yes, Spectre only had two Bond women, didn't it?

    I get that vibe too from the trailer's Jamaica scenes- a sultry energy.

    It's looking like a fun group of female characters this time around, all for the better.

    I'm not too warm on Lynch's appearance, like I don't really care for it, but her voice is downright grating. Especially in the trailer, where she sounds like she's trying too hard to make it sound tough.

    There's also the whole thing with de Armas' star power exploding since she finished filming NTTD and Lynch kind of stalling a tiny bit in the intervening time. To a degree, because NTTD was to be her star turn.
    As was pointed out on the last James Bond & Friends Podcast: Imdb sorts their cast list by their own "starmeter" algorithm (and I know that isn't exact science). Ana de Armas is first for NTTD. Lynch is 11th. Many people will be really confused when Lashana Lynch is in 2/3rds of the film and de Armas is in it for 4 minutes. She is much more famous at the moment.

    To anyone that gets upset that de Armas is only in it as much as Sylvia Trench:

    On that basis I think NTTD is quite interesting because they cast Rami Malek right when he was at his starriest (he'd just won the Oscar) and if it had come out on time they would have looked right on the money, whereas now it feels like he's that guy we all heard about a couple of years ago :D

    I completely agree with everything you said here. However, the point I was responding to, which was originally made by @GadgetMan , is that the character of Nomi being 007 might have been more amenable to "the masses" - or even to more Bond fans in general - if she was more traditionally beautiful. This may or may not be the case, but I thought it was an interesting point worth considering.

    @PDJamesBond I strongly agree.
    Of course, all of this is subjective.

    Not to say I don't like Nomi (frankly we haven't seen the film yet) but just going off the trailer and she is potentially taking over Bond's code number, I think the narrative is built so we see it from Bond's perspective.
    They want us to step in Bond's shoes and see a young, cocky, rookie agent who has taken something familiar to us (007) dismiss her ability and grow to like/trust her and I think see ourselves in her, finally root for her.
    Hopefully the story and character are well written so we can go on this journey throughout the film

    Those two characters were never presented as the new 007.

    I still don't see the issue. Bond is the hero of the films, even when he calls himself Sterling or Somerset or whatever he's still the same guy. 007 isn't a superhero name: it's not like a new character taking over as Batman or anything. That even happens sometimes and people don't get upset.

    I think that's where most not 'in-the-know' people got pissed about. Of course we knew Nomi wasn't JAMES BOND, she just had the designation 007. But others didn't and as I said before with the botched way that people are trying for inclusivity nowadays people got spooked and ran with the rumor.

    I think that's more telling about the intelligence of these people than it is about films pushing for inclusivity: you can literally read comments under an article which explicitly says she's not playing Bond and they'll be complaining that they don't want a black, female Bond and they won't see the film :D These aren't geniuses.

    Dialogue and humour are key factors to any great Bond movie IMHO. I'm not worried about PWB but she does bring in another variable (unproven in this genre) so it could go either way. Bad dialogue just makes the teeth grate and can ruin a movie. Good dialogue draws you in and we all have a favourite chunk of dialogue from the Bond legacy. Fingers crossed.

    She writes good dialogue so I'm fairly hopeful about that.

    Yeah, you're right, it's not like 007 is everything to the franchise.

    It's not like the movie is translated as 007: _____ or 007 vs ____ in many countries in the world.

    It's not like the official logo (what the bat is for Batman) for James Bond is actually the 007 with a gunbarrel

    It's not like Q, M, or many other characters in the movie refer to him as 007.

    I mean..you know what, it doesn't matter what me or you think.

    Let's see if they said something about this on their facebook page.

    What was it?

    Oh yeah facebook dot com slash JamesBond007 ......fuck, ok, maybe they do have 007, but they also have James Bond!!!!

    See, 007 is not THE BRAND for this entire franchise it's 007 + James Bond!

    So..umm...

    Yeah, let's see if they did something on twitter about this.


    What's their twitter? @Jame...oh no, it isn't it's....... @007

    hmmm....so their entire brand on twitter is 007?

    ...oh well, who cares, Twitter is overrated anyways.

    Let's go to the official website and see if they have something to say.

    Their website being.... 007.com?

    And they have a 007 shop on it? Not a "James Bond Shop" but "007 shop"

    Hmm...
    It's almost as if 007 IS the brand for this massive franchise and casting a new 007 is just like Batman changing his name to FlyingDarkCreatureMan cause..."hey, it's all about Bruce Wayne, the name "Batman" is not important, it's just a code name"

    If James Bond isn't "007" for one film, for the sake of shaking things up and keeping it fresh, I don't think it will be an issue. And it's funny that you mention Batman, because if you read the comics, MANY characters have taken over for Batman over the years. Dick Grayson, Damian Wayne, Jean-Paul Valley, and Jim Gordon, to name a few. And guess what? The franchise is still Batman, and Bruce Wayne is Batman 99% of the time. Comic book fans are some of the biggest nitpickers on planet earth and I have never heard a backlash against these characters filling in for Batman that was 1/100th as loud as the outcry against Bond not being 007 for one bloody film.

    I think being upset that a fictional character doesn't share the web address of the movie for one movie is a level of sensitivity I just can't share.

    Great characters and storytelling comes from conflict. Having Bond run into an incredibly competent young agent who has taken over the 007 mantle after his retirement is the perfect conflict for our main character at this point of his life...

    ...and it becomes even more interesting when this character is also a Bond girl, making the capable agent-type of Bond girl we're used to getting more fresh and interesting, and incredibly fitting with the way Bond's role with women has developed over his era - which is exactly what the film is meant to be doing considering it's literally the end of an era.

    I think it's also a great idea because the first time we saw him he was a cocky fresh agent who had just been given the 007 number: it's a great bookend to his time to do that again.

    The concept of "old hand - young rookie" is well proven throughout cinematic history. It makes perfect sense re the context of DC's last apperance. It's down the the execution.

    Oh yeah facebook dot com slash JamesBond007 ......fuck, ok, maybe they do have 007, but they also have James Bond!!!!

    See, 007 is not THE BRAND for this entire franchise it's 007 + James Bond!

    So..umm...

    Yeah, let's see if they did something on twitter about this.


    What's their twitter? @Jame...oh no, it isn't it's....... @007

    hmmm....so their entire brand on twitter is 007?

    ...oh well, who cares, Twitter is overrated anyways.

    Let's go to the official website and see if they have something to say.

    Their website being.... 007.com?

    And they have a 007 shop on it? Not a "James Bond Shop" but "007 shop"

    Hmm...
    It's almost as if 007 IS the brand for this massive franchise and casting a new 007 is just like Batman changing his name to FlyingDarkCreatureMan cause..."hey, it's all about Bruce Wayne, the name "Batman" is not important, it's just a code name"

    Is FlyingDarkCreatureMan the Robert Pattinson one? It sounds good.

    All the 007 tumult -- so what !??! Bond gets assigned the number. Whenever an 00 dies -- they don't seem to retire -- their number gets used again. In the film TB there was a lady 00 agent. No one got their undies in a twist. In Fleming's own work Bond went from 007 to 7777 -- no one got their undies in a twist. What do you think ? They retire numbers ? The numbers, like weapons, cars, etc. get used again.

    I know it was a joke in DAD, but I quite liked the idea of him being Double-O Zero for a little while. It just sounds cool :D
    (Even if the logo would look a bit rubbish!)

    I wonder if NTTD will have a long unbroken shot? Cary used it perfectly in True Detective, it would be great to have another one like Spectre, hopefully an action scene

    I wouldn't be surprised if the shot where Bond bumps into Nomi in the Jamaican club is a one-shot. Might not be very long but could be cool.
