It could've been better edited, yes. Waiting for that final trailer. Spots were awesome though.

I'm going to riot if at the end of the film, Craig doesn't tell Malek

Welp, I'm glad you're no screenwriter
The Boyle script had
The press release to announce Bond 25 mentioned Ana's name first in the new cast and then she doesn't even get poster billing which is weird, even the bit female parts for Berenice Marlohe and Monica Belluci did. It would be unfortunate to repeat that again IMO.
Ana's been promoting the movie quite a bit for someone with no cast billing.
Daniel Craig: “I should always be so lucky to work with a woman like [Ana de Armas]. This is a movie where there’s a lot of **** going on, a lot of big acting, myself very much included, but she shines through because she’s the real deal. She’s got very good comic timing and we’re not offering her a huge part. But she came in and just nailed it. She had very little to go on, the scripts are being rewritten, you’re changing things all the time or throwing them at her, and she’s not fazed by it.” (February 18, 2020)

Ana de Armas: “I wouldn’t say [Paloma]'s ordinary, because when she needs to perform her job, she does. But [she] is flawed. She says what she feels, she’s nervous, she’s scared. It’s human. When I read it, I was like, ‘Oh, wait — I can be a Bond girl. I’m that. I’m that messy.’ That’s what felt so attractive, on top of what she’s actually doing in the story, which is another step toward giving women a more powerful and strong place in the films.” (November 22, 2019)

I can't wait to see De Armas' performance, she's a fantastic actress
What do we think of the alleged plot/premise?

De Armas will obviously be billed in the titles (and it would be surprising to see her on a double-title with Kinnear and Dencik et al), and it is entirely possible that the film billing will not reflect the poster billing, which appears to be more common these days.
