The character was revealed as being the mastermind behind the titular worldwide criminal organization, as well as James Bond's adoptive brother, so it was a real shame that after his survival at the end of the last mission, he wouldn't be coming back.
Two-time Oscar victor Christoph Waltz is set to return as James Bond adversary Ernst Stavro Blofeld in the Cary Joji Fukunaga-directedBond 25. The end of Spectre did leave the potential for the Spectre leader to return and now perhaps he will.

The franchise's most iconic villain, Blofeld was originally glimpsed on-screen in shadows, often just with his hands stroking his white cat being visible. Seen only from behind, he was portrayed by actor Anthony Dawson (who had previously played Professor Dent in 1962's Dr. No), with Blofeld's voice provided by character actor Eric Pohlmann; the pair returned to the role, with Blofeld's face once again obscured, in 1965's Thunderball. Unfortunately, Spectre ended up being a lacklustre Bond effort overall and didn't really give Waltz the best material to work with. Due to legal issues, Blofeld once again was relegated to a back-of-the-head-only turn in 1981's For Your Eyes Only (played by John Hollis, with Robert Rietty providing the voice), and in 1983, the great Max Von Sydow appeared briefly in Sean Connery's return to the role of Bond, Never Say Never Again. However, we do know that Rami Malek (Bohemian Rhapsody) is taking up the post of the latest 007 baddie, which means there's a chance of James picking Ernst's criminal mind for advice on how to stop this new threat - a la Silence of the Lambs. That aspect of the film is not changing. According to the report, Lea Seydoux's returning Bond-love interest, Madeleine Swann, would be "visiting [Blofeld] in prison and trying to mine him for information about Malek's sadistic character".
