Christoph Waltz has reportedly signed on for two more Bond movies

Spectre Sam Mendes Daniel Craig Christoph Waltz Banner

SPECTRE may not have reached the critical or box office heights as its predecessor, but I do have some (possible) good news for those of you who thought Christoph Waltz was underused in the SKYFALL sequel. The Mirror is reporting that Waltz has signed on for two more Bond flicks, however there is a catch. The actor will only return if Daniel Craig reprises his 007 role in the 25th and 26th installments.

Although earlier this year it didn't sound like Craig wanted to do another Bond film, it was right after production had wrapped on SPECTRE, and a source tells the publication that “Daniel has been a huge success as 007 and is loved by fans so he isn’t going anywhere yet." One person who won't be back for the next Bond movies is director Sam Mendes, who in November confirmed that he's done with the franchise.

Waltz is a damn fine actor, but many were unimpressed with his character and his role in SPECTRE, so I'm quite curious to see how people will react to this news. Do you think Waltz will definitely return for at least one more Bond movie, and who would you want to take over for Mendes?

SPECTRE is still playing in some theaters, however it hasn't been announced yet when it will arrive on DVD and Blu-ray.

Meh

I like Waltz, but he was an awful choice for Blofeld. He seemed to be playing the same menacingly giddy character we've seen before. He was not intimidating at all. Craig did not sell him as any kind of a threat either. Spectre was almost as bad as Skyfall was great. Just an awful, thoughtless script focused only on hitting the locations/action scenes quotient and throwing in a half-assed plot when necessary.

Maybe he'll actually do something

I had several issues with SPECTRE and the under use of Blofeld was definitely at the top of the list. I hope if Craig and Waltz do come back then we'll get a true Blofeld who is actually scary and threatening.

Conflicted

I want more waltz vs craig, but SPECTRE was too good of a sendoff for Craig's Bond. If they were gonna do more, they should have planned a Bond/Blofeld trilogy from the getgo and saved some of the stuff from SPECTRE as that movie really played out like they were going through a checklist

Spectre was a bit average but Waltz was as good as the role allowed him to be and if it was always the plan to bring him back then it justifies the character's usage in Spectre somewhat.

I actually haven't seen SPECTRE yet. And based on what vague spoilers I encountered (some of which I misinterpreted), I thought that was not going to be in the cards. Knowing that Blofeld isn't a one-and-done villain is terrific news. And while the producers saying Craig is sticking around isn't the same as hearing it from the man himself, I for one was shocked how quickly people took out-of-context statements and turned them into full-on misinformation (I was just talking to some friends the

I was spoiled of that twist too before seeing the movie. But you know what? I didn't feel that it affected the experience. It's not like it has that much of an impact on the plot. Besides, it was kind of obvious (if you've seen all the movies of the saga).

I'm not one to get all bent out of shape over spoilers most of the time.

I think in the future people will think Spectre is underrated, like Licence To Kill and Quantum of Solace.

Great! He was underused in Spectre, but I still enjoyed the movie. Can't wait to see how they use him in the future.

He better returns!

S.P.E.C.T.R.E. was only the introduction, and it set him up as BOND's true nemesis. That's why he didn't die and was arrested instead.

Waltz made the very best out of his underwritten role and Mendes did a fine Job as an director. I just hope that they come up with a better script the next time. The script for spectre was (even compared to the older Bond movies) horrible, stupid and cliched.

Guess I'm one of the few who really enjoyed Spectre. As for the news, I'm not surprised as Blofeld didn't do much in Spectre. The movie was more like an introduction of his character. To not have him in future Bond films would be weird and I'm glad to Waltz will reprise the role.

I enjoyed Spectre and liked the fact that it attempted to have Bond have a little more 'fun' this time around then previous films, but one of the aspects I was looking forward to most was Waltz performance which was ultimately disappointing. The twist nor the secretcy behind the twist didn't bother me at all; what did was that there was nothing productive that came out of the whole secretcy of keeping it under wraps and due to that his character wasn't as fleshed out or memorable as I was

I'm glad he's signed on for two more films (despite Craig's flip flop attitude to reprising the role of Bond) and hope the next two entries give him more to do considering how great of an actor Waltz is.

As for who should direct next, I would love to see Martin Campbell return again to boost some energy and adrenaline back into this franchise. Or if it's someone new, then I would love to see Joe Carnahan take a stab at it. Would love to see what type of action and style he could bring to a Bond film.

And the film releases (according to Amazon) February 9th.

I hope he does. SPECTRE wasn't perfect, but it was entertaining, and Waltz is a great actor. The problems with the film weren't Waltz's performance, he was just underused. Putting more of him--a lot more of him--in the next film would be a good improvement right off the bat.
