Christoph Waltz has reportedly been spotted on the set of Bond 25, hinting at the return of his Spectre villain, Blofeld.

The return of the character was speculated about earlier in 2019 when the working title of the film was alleged to be Shatterhand.

The name comes from an alias used by supervillain Ernst Stavro Blofeld in Ian Flemings novel You Only Live Twice (1964) but Blofeld had been captured by MI6 at Spectres conclusion, leaving fans wondering how he could return.

But new reports have alleged that Waltz has been seen shooting scenes at Pinewood studios and when a visitor spotted him Waltz insisted: “You havent seen me.”

Bohemian Rhapsody star Rami Malek is set to Bond 25s main villain in an as-yet-named role but Blofeld could make an appearance perhaps as a prisoner being interrogated for information.

Filming officially kicked off on Bond 25 back in April, after Danny Boyles departure as director meant progress was delayed for months while they found a new crew.

To make his mark on the story and correct some perceived wrongs with what he was working with, Cary Fukunaga re-wrote the script; production was then halted again a few weeks after cameras began rolling when star Daniel Craig took time out to recover from an ankle injury he sustained while shooting in Jamaica.
