It was recently announced that Games of Thrones star Peter Dinklage will be joining the cast of X-Men: Days of Future Past, and he’s not going to be a minor addition (shut up, mr. PC. You know what I meant.) to the cast – he’s been cast as the villain of the story.
According to Variety, Dinklage will be playing the film’s “main antagonist,” which quashes earlier rumors that Dinklage will be playing the Alpha Flight member, Puck. There’s also no pint-sized villain coming to mind if you base it on the comic book story arc the movie is based on, but since there’s rumors that the Sentinels are going to be in the film, the most likely role for Dinklage will be the mutant-hunting giant robots’ inventor, Bolivar Trask.
Directed by Bryan Singer and co-starring Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy and Jennifer Lawrence, X-Men: Days Of Future Past opens in the UK on 18 July 2014.
