Dubbed versions of the newly released trailer for No Time to Die may contain an unintended spoiler.

As well as offering action-packed scenes and a better look at Rami Malek as villain Safin, viewers of the trailer’s international versions may have been let in on a major plot point.

The English-language trailer sees Bond – played by Daniel Craig – on the phone saying, “Well, I’ve met your new 00” in reference to Lashana Lynch’s character, Nomi.

However, as pointed out by the popular James Bond fan site MI6-HQ, in both the Spanish and Italian dubbed versions of the trailer, Bond says “007” instead.

Some fans have taken this apparent slip-up as confirmation of the rumours that Nomi will assume the agent’s famous spy code following his retirement seen at the start of the movie.

Lynch addressed the reports herself last year after rumours of her taking the mantle caused a backlash among some fans. However, the actor did not confirm or deny them.

The alleged spoiler is still majorly speculative. As recently as 2018, producer Barbara Broccoli declared that 007 will remain male in future installations.

The film, which is the 25th Bond adaptation, is directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga, making him the first US director to take charge on a Bond project.

No Time to Die was originally scheduled for release in April 2020, but was delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic. It will now debut in UK cinemas on 12 November.
