First look at Javier Bardem as the baddie in ‘Skyfall’

Over the weekend director Sam Mendes took the production of the James Bond film ‘Skyfall’ to the streets of Whitehall in London.

The internet has been flooded with videos and images from the shoot. The big surprise is the appearance of Javier Bardem who is allegedly playing the film’s main villain.

The Daily Mail, Bleeding Cool and Collider is reporting that Bardem’s character is named Silva and each site has a few more details on what happened during the shoot.

A minor warning that the images may contain small spoilers if you’re trying to stay cold going into ‘Skyfall’.

Hit the jump to check out images of Daniel Craig in action and a first look at Bardem as the baddie Silva.

The image of Bardem reminds us of the scene in ‘The Dark Knight’ where the joker is dressed as a police officer and causes chaos during the Police Commissioner’s funeral. Maybe his character is a master of disguise and the film will take on a ‘Day of the Jackal’ vibe.

Not too sure if Silva is already a character in the Bond universe but contact your nearest Bond fanatic for more info.


“Daniel Craig is back as James Bond 007 in Skyfall, the 23rd adventure in the longest-running film franchise of all time. In Skyfall, Bond’s loyalty to M (Judi Dench) is tested as her past comes back to haunt her. As MI6 comes under attack, 007 must track down and destroy the threat, no matter how personal the cost.”

‘Skyfall’ is released 2 November 2012 in the US and 22 November 2012 In Australia.
