NEW UPDATE: Here Is What Rami Malek’s James Bond Supervillain Will Be Like.

by Kaylen Summers

It wasn’t long since the makers of James Bond 25 officially announced the title of the movie as ‘No Time To Die’. Other than this and the confirmation that Rami Malek will be playing the villain for the movie, nothing much about the movie has been revealed.

Now, we are getting new details about the supervillain who is all set to give Bond a run for his money. It was producer Barbara Broccoli, who shed some light into the upcoming finale to Daniel Craig’s tenure as 007.

The movie will see Oscar-winner Rami Malek play the villainous character named Safin. Malek got his first Oscar nomination and win for playing Freddie Mercury in the Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody. The actor is currently appearing in Mr. Robot Season 4. According to what has been revealed in the official synopsis, Safin is a “mysterious villain”, who’s armed with dangerous new technology. Talking about the details revealed in a recent preview of 2020 movies, Barbara Broccoli described Safin as follows.

“We’ve thrown the book at him on this one. He is really the supervillain. He’s the one that really gets under Bond’s skin. He’s a nasty piece of work.”

Bond movies are known for their great villains. However, Daniel Craig’s Bond movies so far had a mixed bag when it comes to villains. Considering that the actor gave us one of the greatest Bonds in the movie history, it’s fair to say that Craig certainly deserves a good villain to face off against in his last mission as 007.

Previous Bond villains for Craig include Mads Mikkelsen as Le Chiffre in Casino Royale, Javier Bardem’s Silva in Skyfall and most recently, Christoph Waltz appearing as the iconic Blofeld in Spectre. Yet, these characters somehow failed to bring out the best antagonist for the superspy. Will Malek be able to pull it off, where other great performers have failed?

Meanwhile, there are rumors that Bond 25’s villain would be blind. Though that would be an interesting twist, the possibility of making this work out in a highly action-packed Bond movie will surely be a challenge for the makers (if the rumors are correct).

No Time to Die is slated to hit theaters on April 8, 2020. this means that we could be seeing a trailer for the movie anytime soon.

Rami Malek Against Playing A Religious Terrorist In Bond 25

by Kaylen Summers

Rami Malek revealed that he thought twice before accepting the role in the upcoming Bond movie. The actor said that he insisted that his character should not be another stereotypical middle eastern terrorist.

The Bond franchise is known for its iconic villains and fans often relate the quality of a particular Bond film to the foe he’s set to take on. With a role that carries such a great deal of weight to it, it’s no wonder why the actor is concerned. Malek, who won an Oscar this year for his performance as Freddie Mercury in Bohemian Rhapsody, feared his Egyptian ancestry could lead to him being cast as an Arabic-speaking terrorist or a villain who uses religion as a justification for his crimes.

In an interview with The Mirror, the actor said, “It’s a great character and I’m very excited. But that was one thing that I discussed with Cary Fukunaga [director]. I said, ‘We cannot identify him with any act of terrorism reflecting an ideology or a religion. That’s not ­something I would entertain, so if that is why I am your choice then you can count me out’. But that was clearly not his vision. So he’s a very different kind of terrorist.” 

The Oscar-winning actor was born in Los Angeles in 1981 to parents who immigrated to the United States three years earlier. Speaking of his heritage, the 38-year-old added: “I am Egyptian. I grew up listening to Egyptian music. I loved Omar Sharif. These are my people. I feel so gorgeously tied to the culture and the human beings that exist there.”

As for Bond 25, the actor revealed: “It’s another extremely clever script from the people who have figured out exactly what people want in those movies. But I feel a substantial weight on my shoulders. I mean, Bond is something that we all grow up with.”
