Sweet Merciful Lannister! Game of Thrones’ Peter Dinklage Joins The Cast Of X-Men: Days Of Future Past

I was holding out hope Peter Dinklage would be cast as Doctor Psycho in a Wonder Woman film but I guess an X-Men role will have to do… 


This might be the best news of the year so far. Director Bryan Singer has this habit of revealing casting news on his Twitter feed and this message sent shockwaves through fandom last night.

And right now, that’s all we know. No character has been named but many are speculating the Golden Globe/Emmy winner will play Puck, an Alpha Flight team member from the Marvel Universe who happens to be a dwarf. The character was never a member of the X-Men though and has only had a few team-ups or run-ins with them throughout the years. Dinklage has the chops to play just about anyone though (Singer did tease an all-CGI character) and he could always wind up playing a non-mutant.

The Game of Thrones actor joins an already huge cast which includes most of the X-Men: First class lineup as well as actors from the original three X-Men films. and you can see him return as Tyrion Lannister on March 31st.

    I like the idea thrown around that he could play Uatu and would be used to connect all the dots between each X-Men films.
    My guess is more something related to the Sentinels though.

    Next role: Miles Vorkosigan!!!!

  • Helen Grubb

    cast him as anything, just make sure it’s a leading role

  • Captain ZADL

    Who says he has to play a dwarf? After what they did for Chris Evans as a skinny, young Steve Rogers, he could be anyone at all. Even Colossus.

    Mark Ruffalo did a pretty convincing 12 foot tall 2 ton green monster in Avengers, and I’m pretty sure that’s not what he looks like in real life.

    Yup, that’s what I said! He could be CGI but honestly, he could play anyone without that and nail it.

    Variety is saying he’s playing the main villain. So maybe Master Mold?

    I started reading the books, and all I could think was, “The reporter from “Penelope” should be Miles.” And then I watched GoT and I was, “Yes, he would be the best Miles ever.”

    Could be Bolivar Trask. Could be anyone who doesnt have a previously established physical form….
