Last night we brought you the news of Peter Dinklage‘s casting for Bryan Singer‘s X-Men: Days of Future Past. Today we’ve got an update on the role Dinklage will be playing. There is no name yet, but Variety is reporting from sources saying that Dinklage will be the main antagonist.
If true, this would rule out many fans, including this one’s, hope that Dinklage would be playing the mutant Puck. Shit, I was looking forward to seeing Puck on the big screen with hopes of an eventual Alpha Flight movie.
Which villain might Dinklage be playing?
Bolivar Trask (Sentinel creator) or Master Mold (Head Sentinel):
Nimrod: (Ignore Nimrod’s text bubbles, just an old joke)
Are a few of the names being thrown about on comic book forums. There’s always the possibility that Singer will create a whole new character for Dinklage, and with the news that X-Men: Days of Future Past would include a completely CGI character any of these are possible.
What do you think? Do you have a favorite X-Men or Marvel Comics villain that would fit the bill for Dinklage’s role as the main antagonist?
