The character posters for the new James Bond film are here

A first look at the cast has arrived ahead of the official trailer

No Time To Die might still be a few months off, but the picture for the new James Bond film is growing clearer. The first character posters have dropped, ahead of the release of the official trailer.

The new film sees Daniel Craig reprise the role of James Bond once more – but a new actor carries the 007 name. Captain Marvel‘s Lashana Lynch will be playing the agent, who it seems would take on the job following Bond’s retirement.

Craig returns alongside other Bond regulars including Léa Seydoux as Madeleine Swann and Ben Whishaw as Q. But new faces are on board too: Ana De Armas, who recently starred opposite Craig in Rian Johnson’s sttar-studded whodunit Knives Out, as well as Bohemian Rhapsody‘s very own Rami Malek.

Malek takes on the role of Bond’s antagonist in No Time To Die, but made it very clear that some conditions had to be in place. “I said, ‘We cannot identify him with any act of terrorism reflecting an ideology or religion,’” Malek told the Mirror on his position on his character.

New names abound for the upcoming film, directed by Cary Fukanaga and co-written by Phoebe Waller-Bridge.

The Fleabag creator said the BBC asked for her involvement to add “little spices” to the script, hoping to edit characters and storylines that in the past may have been criticised for misogyny.

The first teaser for No Time to Die was released ahead of the full trailer, promising more guns, more Craig, more high-stakes drama for what is supposed to be Craig’s very last time in the James Bond tux.
