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."
