Peter Dinklage as Tyrion Lannister on Game of Thrones S01E010

Just yesterday, word dropped that Peter Dinklage was going to be involved with X-Men: Days of Future Past, and while everyone on earth was celebrating, Variety was finding out that he would be the main villain of the movie. Who that villain will be is still a production secret, but my guess is that he’ll be playing Benedict Cumberbatch.

It’s doubtful that he’ll play Senator Robert Kelly unless director Bryan Singer throws out the continuity of his own films where Bruce Davidson played the anti-mutant politician (and Kelly is more of a catalyst than major antagonist in “Days of Future Past” anyway), but there’s a chance he may play Boliver Trask, the inventor of Sentinels (the robots designed to kill all mutants). If so, he could have a truly fantastic character arc, one befitting Dinklage’s immense talent. Of course, he could also play a version of the cyborg Ahab or do the mo-cap for the Sentinels or play a character solely invented for the film. You never know.

Either way, Dinklage is an exciting addition to a movie that was already shaping up to be uncanny.
