The famous super-villain of the Bond series, Blofeld is set for return in the upcoming release in 2020. And the much-discussed rumor is seemingly now true. Christoph Waltz starring as the nemesis Blofeld was spotted by a visitor in Pinewood Studios in London and this almost confirmed our suspicions.
In addition to this, Waltz also reportedly told the visitor “You haven’t seen me.” If this isn’t enough of a confirmation, then what is? According to Daily Mail Entertainment news, the visitor tipped them off revealing about the actor’s shooting taking place.
Two villains in Bond 25?
This also came as a surprise since Waltz’s name was absent from the list of cast of the new 007 movie. It kind of disappointed the avid fans of the Bond franchise. But things may have changed now. The film’s primary shooting began in Jamaica sparking new rumours too. Rami Malek was labelled as the new chief villain of the film but Daily Mail has something to add too.
“There’s unfinished business between Bond and Blofeld. If I told you any more, I’d have to kill you.”
We don’t know the source and its stability but it points towards Waltz’s confirmation in the project. If this is true, then Daniel Craig has to fight two and not one villain this time.

Spectre saw an epic ending but not before it was confirmed that Blofled was still alive. Even after his helicopter was shot down. The super villain tried to set up a shady global surveillance grid and met with a desired end.
Cary Joji Fukanaga is the new director of the still-untitled Bond 25, working from a screenplay by regular Bond screenwriters Neal Purvis and Robert Wade and series newcomer Phoebe Waller Bridge who created the show Fleabag.
Bond 25 is set for April 3, 2020 release in UK.
