No Time To Die director Cary Joji Fukunaga shares some details regarding the role of Christoph Waltz returning as Ernst Stravo Blofeld.
Earlier today, fans finally got their first look at the highly-anticipated James Bond film, which will be the fifth and final outing for Daniel Craig, who has played the character since 2006 with Martin Campbell’s Casino Royale. Fans for the most part have responded positively to the No Time To Die trailer, eager to see what Cary Joji Fukunaga has brought to the table.
In particular, some were pleasantly surprised to see Christoph Waltz’s Blofeld make an appearance. Serving as the primary antagonist in the previous film Spectre, one of the most-criticized elements of the previous film was how Christoph Waltz’s character was handled, particularly the reveal of his identity as Blofeld as well as him being revealed to be Bond’s adopted brother Frank Oberhauser.
Speaking with Empire Magazine about the new trailer, Cary Joji Fukunaga teased what fans should expect from Christoph Waltz’s Blofeld in No Time To Die:
“Blofeld is an iconic character in all the Bond films. He’s in prison, but he certainly can’t be done yet, right? So what could he be doing from there and what nefarious, sadistic things does he have planned for James Bond and the rest of the world?”
Christoph Waltz is a two-time Academy Award winner, having won for his supporting roles in Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds and Django Unchained.
