Scott, known for his role as Sherlock's nemesis, Moriarty, is a villain in the upcoming movie.

His Spectre character is Max Denbigh, cited as the new head of the Centre for National Security.

According to a short synopsis of the plot, he "questions Bond's actions and challenges the relevance of MI6".

The new trailer footage shows two short glimpses of him - one in a fight scene with Ralph Fiennes' character, M, and the other of him starting menacingly at the screen.

Scott referenced his Spectre role earlier in July, in a recorded message for Sherlock fans at Comic-Con in San Diego.

Explaining why he could not attend the convention, he help up a piece of paper that read Spekter 007 Script (Top Secret).

He mentions he is doing "this little film" which is why he cannot be at Comic-Con.

Fan reactions on Twitter to his Bond debut ranged from "Oh my goodness" to a fan called Amy who wrote "No but seriously, look at him".

"Even just the quick flash of evil looking Andrew Scott is enough for me! #Spectre," tweeted Kelly Alyse.

Spectre will be released in UK cinemas on October 26.
