Actor Christoph Waltz will portray the classic villain Ernst Blofeld in the highly anticipate Bond movie, Bond 24.
The two-time Oscar winner, who was named as Daniel Craig's (James Bond) latest opponent earlier this month, will bring Ernst Stavro Blofeld back to the big screen for the first time in three decades, reports dailymail.co.uk.
Blofeld is a supervillain from the James Bond series of novels and films, which was created by Ian Fleming.
This fictional character has been portrayed by Donald Pleasence, Charles Gray, Telly Savalas and Max von Sydow, and also inspired Dr. Evil in the Austin Power movies.
The Bond movies have been free to incorporate classic elements of the 007 mythos such as Blofeld and nefarious organisation SPECTRE once again after a long-running legal case with the estate of Blofeld co-creator Kevin McClory was settled in November last year.
Bond 24 will once-again see Craig as 007, with Ralph Fiennes, Ben Whishaw and Naomie Harris reprising their roles from Skyfall.
