We've been expecting you: Christoph Waltz returning as Blofeld for Bond 25

Blofeld, the head of worldwide criminal organisation SPECTRE, was last seen in 2015's Spectre and though his helicopter was shot down by Bond over Westminster Bridge, he survived and was - we assumed - arrested by MI6. Yet if this is true, it would confirm a previous report from The Playlist that Waltz would be back to scare the trousers off of Bond fans again, although one of the sources at the time was also Baz Bamigboye.

007 star Daniel Craig, director Cary Fukunaga and the #Bond25 crew were out in the sunshine today shooting across a number of London locations, including Whitehall, where Daniel filmed a scene with a classic @astonmartin V8, first seen in a Bond film in THE LIVING DAYLIGHTS.

After rumors swirled earlier this spring that Christoph Waltz would actually be back as Blofeld for the now untitled James Bond 25, further confirmation has come from across the pond.

According to Daily Mail journalist Baz Bamigboye, Waltz has been seen at the iconic Pinewood Studios, where every 007 movie, from Dr.

Waltz said back in 2017 that he would not be returning to the fold, telling an Italian movie website: "No, I'm sorry. Sorry. I would've liked to".

The character of Blofeld, with his tropes of cat stroking, Mandarin suits, and elaborate monologuing, would become a pop culture phenomenon, so when Waltz was cast to play him again in Spectre it was met with quite the reception.

Asked about rumours Blofeld would be back, he told Inquirer.net: "Who is saying those rumours?"

But for now, we should just keep our fingers crossed that production on James Bond 25 can actually finish up without anymore hiccups. "But I don't know yet what it's going to be". No info has leaked out about Waltz's role in Bond 25 (which still doesn't have an official name as of writing), but you can't imagine he would be the focus of the action, especially with Rami Malek playing the villain of the piece.
