It is now being reported that Dinklage will be playing the main bad guy in the film. I’m not sure if this means he’ll be the voice of Master Mold or a government official who launches the Sentinel program. We’ll have to just wait and see.
Earlier in the week, Bryan Singer announced that RIchard Nixon would be in the new X-Men film, Days of Future Past. he also announced that he’d like the film to include an all CG character.
Now he’s announced that Peter Dinklage will be joining a star-studded cast that already includes: Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Nicholas Hoult, Jennifer Lawrence, Ian McKellan, Patrick Stewart, Hugh Jackman and possibly Halle Berry.
Sadly, the internet has already decided that Dinklage will probably play Puck, a member of the Canadian super hero team, Alpha Flight. I think that this is just because Puck is pretty much the only hero who is a midget and who has at least some attachment to the X-Men.
I’m not willing to make this leap. I think that there is a greater chance that we’ll see, or rather hear Dinklage as the voice of the all CG character.
X-Men: Days of Future Past opens July 18, 2014.
