The 007 Twitter account continued to tease Wednesday’s upcoming “No Time to Die” official trailer debut by releasing character posters for 25th James Bond film on Tuesday morning.

These included first looks at new additions Lashana Lynch, Ana de Armas and Rami Malek, as the mysterious new Bond villain.

We still don’t know much about Malek’s character, though here he looks like a natural Bond villain — ominous, pale and slightly scarred.

More interesting, perhaps, is a badass looking Lynch, who in a report earlier this year was rumored to be the new 007 now that Bond has retired in Jamaica. There’s also de Armas as another new Bond girl packing some heat, after starring in another hot movie with Daniel Craig, “Knives Out.”

Craig, Lea Seydoux and Ben Whishaw also all get their own character posters in their return to the franchise. But we still haven’t gotten a look at the new cast members David Dencik, Dali Benssalah, Billy Magnussen or the other returning cast members Ralph Fiennes (as M), Naomie Harris (as Moneypenny) or Rory Kinnear (as Tanner).

“No Time to Die” is Craig’s fifth and (likely) final entry in the franchise, and it finds Bond having left active service and enjoying a tranquil life in Jamaica. His peace is short-lived when his old friend Felix Leiter (Jeffrey Wright) from the CIA turns up asking for help. The mission to rescue a kidnapped scientist turns out to be far more treacherous than expected, leading Bond onto the trail of a mysterious villain armed with dangerous new technology.

American filmmaker Cary Joji Fukunaga is taking over directing duties from Sam Mendes, and he’s working from a script that has Neal Purvis, Robert Wade, Scott Z. Burns, Fukunaga and “Fleabag” star Phoebe Waller-Bridge all credited as writers.

“No Time to Die” opens in the U.K. on April 3, 2020 and on April 8 in the U.S. See the new posters below, and check out the first trailer on Wednesday.
