When the news first broke that would be joining 's X-Men: Days Of Future Past, there was a lot of speculation over which superhero he would play. Puck was one name which was particularly prevalent in these early days, though Singer's claim he would be playing the main villain soon ended that.
More recently there were suggestions Dinklage could simply be providing a voice-over and/or facial motion capture for a mostly CGI character. Singer has returned to confirm that this also not the case. He told IGN:
He's not going to be a CGI character. He'll be himself. Not that he'll be playing Peter Dinklage, he'll be playing this character. It's not a shy character. He's just such a phenomenal actor; I'm a huge fan of Peter's and Game of Thrones. He was my first choice and I was really happy [about the casting].
This news also seems to put the end to some rumors that he could be playing MODOK. Now the main suspect seems to be of military scientist, Bolivar Trask. This character would certainly fit into Days Of Future Past, as he's the genius responsible for creating The Sentinels. Having said this, there could still be plenty of other possibilities.
What do you think? Do you have any ideas who he could play? Let us know below.
