James Bond fans have heaped praise on writer Phoebe Waller-Bridge for championing women's empowerment after the first full trailer for the latest installment was released on Wednesday. 

The new promotional clip sent viewers into meltdown as lead actress Lashana Lynch was unveiled as fierce agent Nomi - rumoured to be the first female 007 - alongside James Bond actor Daniel Craig, his love Madeleine (Lea Seydoux) and his aid Paloma, played by Ana de Armas.

And with the theme of feminism present in the film, excited social media followers took to Twitter to laud Fleabag's Phoebe, 34, for bringing female characters to the forefront of the iconic franchise.

One delighted fan penned: 'We stan powerful women in the 007 franchise #NoTimeToDie.' 

Another tweeted: 'I’ll see it because I want to know what a Bond movie with Phoebe Waller-Bridges’ fingerprints all over it looks like. And because of Lashana Lynch. So yes, for the first time ever, I’m seeing a Bond movie because of the women.' 

A third thanked comedian and playwright Phoebe for 'challenging' the traditional Bond subjects, stating: 'The question of Bond’s relevance in the 21st century has punctuated Daniel Craig’s entire tenure, after he almost became a joke by Die Another Day. 

'Makes a lot of sense for #NoTimeToDie to challenge this again, especially with the first properly characterised female 00.'

Starring: Cuban actress Ana, 31, recently teased details about her character, revealing she 'helps Bond navigate through certain things that he wouldn't be able to do alone' but is 'very irresponsible'

As the Killing Eve star is famed for her acclaimed unconventional writing style, another added: 'I trust Phoebe Waller-Bridge to ensure that we get the "women making fun of and beating up Bond" film we all deserve.' 

Others added: 'It's worth noting this is the first Daniel Craig Bond film (perhaps the first of *all* the Bond films?) where a woman shares writing credit. That woman? Phoebe Waller-Bridge. #NoTimeToDie.'
