Rami Malek Makes First Appearance as 007 Villain

Rami Malek Makes First Appearance as 007 Villain

The first look at the upcoming James Bond movie No Time to Die is finally here, with Egyptian-American Rami Malek making his first appearance in his role as the villain.

Earlier this week, the trailer for the 25th official James Bond movie – which will be James Bond star Daniel Craig’s last – was released.

The trailer largely focuses on James Bond, with references to the main villain throughout the trailer. In the latter half of the trailer, Malek’s character starts narrating and is finally revealed.

Craig’s Bond is also seen telling Malek’s character that “history’s not kind to men who play Gods”.

Little is known about Malek’s character at this stage, beyond that he wears a Phantom of the Opera-style white mask and is called ‘Safin’. The mask Malek’s character wears covers facial scars, but those behind No Time to Die have not revealed why the character has those scars.

In April 2019, Malek said he plans to “shock” fans with his portrayal of the Bond villain.

“There’s so many different ways you can look at these characters. I’ve been watching Joaquin Phoenix in this new Joker movie and you can see he’s doing something so special,” said Malek to ET at the time.

“I often look at Anthony Hopkins in Silence of the Lambs and what he did as that villain was something that was just so indelible and I just, ultimately have to look at the character and what he says to me, and why these characters are just so iconic and lasting and so unique.”

No Time to Die has a release date of 2 April 2020 in the United Kingdom.
