FULL CAST OF 'BOND 25' REVEALED!
James Bond 25 finally gave its fans some salient details about Daniel Craig's final outing as 007. The press conference, live streaming from Jamaica where filming is set to begin, has not given fans the title, however. But other big news comes in the form of the confirmed cast list for Bond 25.
Who stars in Bond 25?
New faces to the film include Oscar-winner Rami Malek, who will likely play a villain as speculated many months ago.
Rami Malek phoned into the press conference today, saying: "I'm very much looking forward to joining the whole cast and crew so very soon.
"I promise you all, I will be making sure Mr Bond does not have an easy ride of it in this, this 25th outing."
Dali Benssalah, Billy Magnussen (rumoured to be a CIA agent), Ana De Armas, and David Dencik are all joining the cast.
Returning to the franchise is Lea Seydoux as Madeleine Swann.
At the end of Spectre, Bond retired and swanned off into the sunset with Madeleine (pun intended).
Naomie Harris will return as Moneypenny, along with Ben Whishaw's technical wizard Q.
Rory Kinnear also returns as Bill Tanner, with Jeffrey Wright as Felix Leiter, and Ralph Fiennes as M, the head of MI6.
Fiennes took over the role of M from Judi Dench, who's M was killed in Skyfall.
Though the monicker is seen by some as sexist and certainly antiquated, they are a highlight of the Bond franchise.
Most excitedly for Marvel fans, Lashana Lynch (Captain Marvel) is also joining Bond 25 as one of the Bond girls.
Ana De Armas from Blade Runner 2049 will co-star with Lynch as a fellow Bond girl.
