Peter Dinklage To Play Main Antagonist In X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST

Throw out those rumors of Puck. Still no word on exactly who Peter Dinklage (Game of Thrones) is playing in Bryan Singer's X-Men: Days of Future Past but Variety has learned that he'll be the main baddie. Who do you think it could be?

Variety has learned that Golden Globe winner, Peter Dinklage will be the main antagonist in X-Men: Days of Future Past. When news broke last night, many suggested that Dinklage would be playing Puck, a member of Alpha Flight with ties to Wolverine's (Hugh Jackman) Canadian past. However, Variety reports (below) that Dinklage will be playing a villain, not a hero, ruling out Puck. My own personal suggestion was that Dinklage would be playing Sugar Man, a prominent villain in many alternate dimension X-Men tales. Other theories are that he'll be mocapping the Sentinels or that he'll be playing Boliver Trask, the creator of the mechanical giants (I doubt it will be Trask as he was previously played by Bill Duke in X-Men: The Last Stand). We'll have more news as the story develops.

"It is unknown at this time what character Dinklage would be playing but sources have told Variety it would be the main antagonist."

Raptor055 - 2/14/2013, 12:21 PM
How about Master Mold? They need someone to make the Sentinels, right?
DarthMauve - 2/14/2013, 12:21 PM
"Through out those rumors of Puck"

Do you mean 'Throw out' or 'Throughout'?
StrangerX - 2/14/2013, 12:22 PM
@ raptor- that's an idea
MarkJulian - 2/14/2013, 12:23 PM
@DarthMauve Still working on the article.
DarthMauve - 2/14/2013, 12:25 PM
@MarkJulian

So I see :)
whytry2hard - 2/14/2013, 12:28 PM
he has the face for Fitzroy.
JatevinM - 2/14/2013, 12:29 PM
I see him as either Master Mold or Trask
AlexDeLarge87 - 2/14/2013, 12:30 PM
Master Mold sounds epic. :)
JohnnyCloud - 2/14/2013, 12:30 PM
I'm guessing ARCADE!
Ocelot - 2/14/2013, 12:31 PM
for some reason I'm picturing him as master mold, him siting down in a chair and @JatevinM, trask was used in x-men 3 and was black, so that rules trask out
NapalmdencH - 2/14/2013, 12:32 PM
Trask. Bitches.
Christuffer - 2/14/2013, 12:33 PM
@Mercwitham0uth - Rofl love that GIF

But I have no idea. I'm drawing a blank here.
NapalmdencH - 2/14/2013, 12:33 PM
He's definitely not Kahn.
bababoozer - 2/14/2013, 12:35 PM
Galactus
IIIAdamantiumIII - 2/14/2013, 12:35 PM
yeah that cgi character is him ..because sentinels are not really "characters" he most likely will be master mold
JoeMomma29 - 2/14/2013, 12:35 PM
Yeah not to many choices on who he can be playing.
MassNerder - 2/14/2013, 12:36 PM
The Watcher.
95 - 2/14/2013, 12:36 PM
Yeah, as others said: He could provide the voice of the Sentinels (or Master Mold, in specific). Or he could play a new Bolivar Trask. And maybe this new is mad at the mutants because he has a short-man complex. Yeah...
Paragon79 - 2/14/2013, 12:36 PM
Sounds interesting, he's damn fine actor. Unless there's a midget bad guy I'm unaware of, or they're changing to be a midget, I'm betting he'll be CGI'd.
JoeMomma29 - 2/14/2013, 12:37 PM
No not a watcher they a neutral in events hence the name The Watcher!
KraftB0X - 2/14/2013, 12:37 PM
I said Master Mold in the other post and I'm sticking to it :)
IIIAdamantiumIII - 2/14/2013, 12:38 PM
sugar man would just be really lame/ creepy on the big screen
FOOM - 2/14/2013, 12:38 PM
Def Trask. Def.
VonArndt - 2/14/2013, 12:39 PM
MOJO!!!
AnotherSinisterClone - 2/14/2013, 12:40 PM
In Bruges is amazing just cuz of him ("im sorry, i was on a large amount of horse tranquilizers last night.") i hope hes not typecast into a small person's role, so far he's the best actor in this movie, he shouldn't be limited to a physically small role.
MassNerder - 2/14/2013, 12:40 PM
@JoeMomma29 - An antagonist can be neutral. He could just be the catalyst for time travel/universes colliding.
IronManFTW - 2/14/2013, 12:42 PM
Haha that's not him in In Bruges.
csdot - 2/14/2013, 12:42 PM
Nimrod?
marvel72 - 2/14/2013, 12:42 PM
motion capture suit nimrod.
novaprime - 2/14/2013, 12:42 PM

M3T4LL0 - 2/14/2013, 12:45 PM
He's gonna be Robin.
TheAbomination - 2/14/2013, 12:45 PM
Yeah. I'm done.

Nomadic1 - 2/14/2013, 12:46 PM
He's a great actor so I hope its him and not a cgi part. He's had some good bad guy roles but my fav is Leflore. If you haven't seen Safe Men, check it out. Great cast.
Jollem - 2/14/2013, 12:46 PM
darcy and coulson are my favorite made-up characters
Dubya13 - 2/14/2013, 12:51 PM
M.O.D.O.K
Paragon79 - 2/14/2013, 12:52 PM
AnotherSinisterClone: He wasn't in In Bruges.
