AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR (2018): Peter Dinklage Being Considered For Role

Peter Dinklage

Peter Dinklage In Running For Part In Avengers: Infinity War

Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage is in the middle of talks to appear in Marvel‘s upcoming Avengers: Infinity War.

While Dinklage is mainly known for his role as Tyrion Lannister in the aforementioned Game of Thrones, he is hardly a stranger to the world of Marvel Comics’ adaptations. He portrayed scientist Bolivar Trask in 20th Century Fox‘s X-Men: Days of Future Past, an experience that appears to have prepared the actor for an even bigger step into the world of superhero films. It isn’t known what character he will play in Infinity War, but it is known that he will also appear in the planned follow-up as well.

Returning to directorial duties for the Marvel Cinematic Universe are Anthony and Joe Russo, the minds behind Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Captain America: Civil War. The two brothers plan to shoot the next two Avengers films back-to-back, with the first installment set for release on May 4th, 2018 and the currently-untitled sequel slated to hit theaters on May 3rd, 2019.

Per Superherohype:

It remains to be seen which characters will be the primary focus of the films, though we do know that Captain Marvel will appear in the movies ahead of her solo movie in 2019 and that the film will feature the combined forces of The Avengers and the Guardians of the Galaxy.

An aspiring writer, longtime film junkie, and former UCLARadio.com disc jockey (where I graduated with a BA in Political Science), I've made the jump from penning book reviews and current events editorials for HonorSociety.org to writing movie and TV news and reviews.

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
