Peter Dinklage in talks for a key role in Avengers: Infinity War

Peter Dinklage Avengers: Infinity War

Marvel's AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR and its currently untitled sequel already boasts the largest cast of any Marvel Cinematic Universe flick yet, but it seems that the studio isn't quite finished filling the ranks. Variety reports that Peter Dinklage (Game of Thrones) is currently being eyed to join the massive cast of Marvel's upcoming two-part epic.

The outlet states that talks with Peter Dinklage are still in the early stages, but that the actor is up for what is being called a "key role." Dinklage recently completed work on Game of Thrones' upcoming seventh season, which opened up his schedule enough to allow him to appear in AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR. Although we don't know which character Dinklage will be playing as Marvel declined to comment, Variety's sources indicate that Dinklage is expected to appear in both INFINITY WAR and its sequel. Directed by Joe and Anthony Russo (CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR), the AVENGERS sequel will include just about every Marvel character under the sun, making Peter Dinklage, should he sign up, one of the few new actors to join the franchise's biggest film.

Any ideas on who Peter Dinklage might be playing?

AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR is set for a May 4, 2018 release and a sequel will follow on May 3, 2019.

He was already in a Marvel superhero movie

Couldn't he play whomever that was he played in that X-Men movie? X-Men are Marvel. I know, I know - Sony owns the X-Men movie rights and all that. But whatever.

Given that he's being sought for both Parts

I'm assuming he's The Watcher.

Pip the Troll

He is the one who ends up getting the Space Gem during the Warlock and the Infinity Watch storyline, he is in charge of taking the Space Gem to a distant location, so that the gems will never be together again.

Obviously, he will be Pip the Troll, of all the characters mentioned, Pip is the only relevant one to the Infinity Gauntlet storyline, he even appeared in the 'Warlock and the Infinity Watch' comic, which was the aftermath to the whole Infinity Gauntlet Saga. Puck is from Alpha Flight, and they haven't even been introduced yet.

It seems like everyone has made some pretty good guesses oh whom Dinklage would play
- Pip
- Modok
or
- Ego the Living Planet
would be all fair assumptions.

Pip the Troll plays a role in the comics' cosmic sagas. However, Disney would unlikely cast Dinklage so. Mentor, Thanos' daddy, is always a possibility. Peter Dinklage has the right presence for the role.

Puck is owned by Fox so that's a no. Not sure the Watcher would have much of a role besides a useless cameo. My best guess would be MODOK.

I know they don't own him but..

It would be an amazing plot twist if they got him to voice my boy Norin Radd aka the Silver Surfer!

Yes indeed. I remember reading an interview where Markus and McFeely mentioned wanting MODOK as a villain. Dinklage would make a great Watcher too...
