It's official, next 007 will be a black woman
It's not a joke. 007 has been both femwashed and blackwashed. Lashana Lynch will play double woke seven, I mean 007, after Daniel Craig.
The article doesn't say anything about whether Lashana is a biological woman, or a transgender woman (last case, 007's character could be considered as LGTB inclusive too). She looks more like a transgender one, but taking into account that they didn't mention it and the character has been already femwashed and blackwashed, I'm more inclined that Lashana could be a biological woman. Probably going transgender will be the next step.
So 007 is very much done, farewell and moving on, who will be the next one to be blackwashed? Indiana Jones? Ripley? Sherlock Holmes? Tarzan? Conan of Cimmeria? The Little Mermaid? Aragorn? Gandalf? Nurse Who? John McClane? Robin Hood? King Arthur? Beethoven? Columbus? Thomas Jefferson? Einstein? The XVIth century Spanish Court?
EDIT Regarding whether she's a temporary minor character. According to the movie narrative, she's the new 007. Craig is supposed to came back from retirement for a last mission, recovering the 007 license, kind of 'never say never again'. However, once he's done, once he retires again, and unless she dies, she should get back the 007 license, which means she should be 007 in the next movie. Will it happen? Well, it's not written in stone, and the Opera doesn't end until the racially correct and dietetically empowered lady sings. But again: for now, she's officially the new 007.
