Scenes on Turkish railway bridge

Daily Mail claims Miss Moneypenny is Eve
The Daily Mail still claims that Naomi Harris will be playing Miss Moneypenny even though she has been confirmed as Eve. The paper claims that the character of Eve will become Miss Moneypenny in the future. "She starts as a field operative called Eve and then comes inside the organisation as Miss Moneypenny, M’s right-hand woman." Daniel Craig hinted to the press that Miss Moneypenny and Q will return. A few months ago we found out that Q will be returning but there is still no word on Moneypenny. If this is true, the character will most probably not be credited as Miss Moneypenny until Bond 24 if she is included in that film.
