This news comes after Daniel Craig announced his retirement from playing the character. The movie studio is now searching for his replacement. There have been many rumors that Bond may be a woman moving forward but nothing has been confirmed. Lashana Lynch, who appeared in No Time to Die, seems to be a frontrunner if they go with a woman. However, MGM said the role is still “wide open.”
