Bolivar Trask is universally known as being one of the greatest villains in X-Men history. However, since we live in the 21st Century, we like our movie villains to be full-fledged humans (or mutants) who are conflicted, tortured souls. That seems to be what Game of Thrones star recently talked about the character with EW.
"I didn't want to play the villain," Dinklage told EW. "He's a man of science. He's a man of invention. He actually sees what he's doing as a good thing — [his ambition is] definitely blind and he's quite arrogant. He's strove all his life for a certain respect and attention."
If you're not familiar with the comics, you should probably check out the Trask Industries viral website. It'll give you a quick rundown of the Sentinel program, which is set to be a very large part of the movie's story.
Days of Future Past is definitely one of my favorite comic stories of all time. Are you guys scared that Singer will deviate too much from the story? Let me know below.
Here are the viral teasers in case you haven't seen them. I'm ready for a trailer already!
