TheDailyMail reporter and Bond scooper Baz Bamigboye has been able to confirm that Christoph Waltz has been spotted on the set of Daniel Craig’s Bond 25 and is expected to reprise the role of Spectre villain Blofeld.
This would support previous rumblings from ThePlaylist of Waltz’s return as the Bond villain, despite some denials that it would be happening.

Waltz would join Oscar-winner Rami Malek, who is playing the film’s main villain. Perhaps, the two characters are connected in a way.
There is a really good chance that Blofeld may end up killing Madeleine Swann played by Lea Seydoux, as there have been rumblings for ages that the film could take cues from Her Majesty’s Secret Service which opened with James Bond’s new wife murdered by Spectre.
“Bond has left active service and is enjoying a tranquil life in Jamaica. His peace is short-lived when his old friend Felix Leiter from the CIA turns up asking for help. The mission to rescue a kidnapped scientist turns out to be far more treacherous than expected, leading Bond onto the trail of a mysterious villain armed with dangerous new technology.”
Bond 25 is set for release on April 8th, 2020.
