The Oscar-winning Bohemian Rhapsody star was asked by Esquire whether, in a Finkle is Einhorn-esque twist, Safin is Dr. No. The evidence is, I mean, it’s kinda there, I guess? They’re both in movies with “No” in the title and he’s wearing a “Noh” mask. After confessing that he has “to be extremely careful” and “cant really talk about the character,” Malek admitted that he’s heard the theory and then he got cagey. “Am I? I mean, isnt that an exciting thing to consider all the way up to the release? he asked, only adding that “there is a resurgence of an Ian Fleming influence” in No Time to Die.
[Daniel] Craig will go only so far as to say of Maleks turn, Hes a very complex human being, he played a very complex part, and it was just fabulous to watch.
There’s gonna be egg on our face when it turns out Safin is Khan.
No Time to Die opens on April 10.
