If true, Blofeld’s involvement in the movie could be an interesting development, especially as many thought Bohemian Rhapsody actor Rami Malek had been unveiled as the film’s primary antagonist.
Waltz’s involvement might also suggest that the threat Daniel Craig’s Bond is set to face will be traced by to criminal organisation Spectre – and it also indicates that Blofeld escaped from custody after he was arrested by M during his last screen appearance.

Alongside Craig (and possibly Waltz), Bond 25 will also star Ralph Fiennes (M), Lea Seydoux (Madeleine Swann), Naomie Harris (Moneypenny), Ben Whishaw (Q), Rory Kinnear (Bill Tanner) and Jeffrey Wright (Felix Leiter), as well as Lashana Lynch as the enigmatic Nomi and Ana de Armas as potential love interest Paloma.
Bond 25 is set for release in the UK on 3rd April 2020 and in the US on 8th April
