Fans are eager to see the return of Daniel Craig as James Bond after Spectre which introduced the classic villain played by Christoph Waltz in the new films. Now the future of the 007 franchise is uncertain, with no new movie in development and no official or unofficial sequel date on the horizon, Waltz was asked about returning.

Waltz is rumored to be coming back not just for Bond 25, but also for Bond 26, but Waltz sounds like he’s will only return for the sequels if Daniel Craig comes back as James Bond. Otherwise he’s out.


The rumor comes from The Mirror as Waltz’s villain Blofeld was left alive at the end of Spectre placed in the hands of the authorities. There’s no reason he wouldn’t be able to break out of prison eventually with all his resources. There’s a good chance he could continue to the be the author of James Bond’s pain from within prison as well, controlling any number of henchman and villains.

Producer Michael G. Wilson has said that while Craig is not under contract for any more Bond films, he was confident that they would get the actor back for one more film despite a vocal Craig who opening talked during his press tour about how much he disliked the character and how taxing it is to shoot a film like this, getting him back on board could prove to be a problem.

Director Sam Mendes won’t be back in the director’s chair, so expect Sony Pictures to have a lot of work ahead.
