This November (we hope) the fifth and final Daniel Craig James Bond movie will be released. And now “formidable” No Time To Die villain Safin has been teased by star Rami Malek in a featurette which includes some new footage. The Oscar-winner said: “What I really wanted from Safin was to make him unsettling.”
Malek continued: “Thinking of himself as being heroic.
“Safin is a formidable advisory. James Bond has to adapt to him.”
While in what appears to be new footage of a scene between Safin and Madeleine Swann, the villain says: “I am a man willing to kill the person you love most.”
To which the Bond girl replies: “I’ve already lost everyone I ever loved.”
Teasing the mysterious Safin, No Time To Die director Cary Fukunaga said: “What he wants and what he’s willing to do, makes him a very frightening character.
“Personally to Bond, but also on a global level.”
While in another previously unseen moment, Safin tells Bond: “We both eradicate people to make the world a better place.
“I just want to be a little…tidier.”
It’s one of the biggest theories surrounding the film.
After all, No Time To Die is the first Bond movie to have the word “No” in the title since 1962’s Dr No.
Additionally, Safin dresses similarly and has a very Dr No-esque lair.
Plus, how can you top Blofeld in Spectre? Surely the only way is to bring back another classic villain?
No Time To Die’s synopsis reads: “Five years after the capture of Ernst Stavro Blofeld, James Bond has left active service.
“He is approached by Felix Leiter, his friend and a CIA officer, who enlists his help in the search for Valdo Obruchev, a missing scientist.
“When it becomes apparent that Obruchev was abducted, Bond must confront a danger the likes of which the world has never seen before.”
No Time To Die is currently set for UK release on November 12, 2020.
