Game of Thrones fans will agree that The Imp, portrayed by the fabulous Peter Dinklage, is one of the best characters on the show. Dinklage is now the latest addition to Bryan Singer's "X-Men: Days of Future Past". Singer turned to Twitter to say, "Officially like to welcome #PeterDinklage from #GameOfThrones to #XMEN #DaysofFuturePast Very very excited!"
Singer has not announced what role Dinklage will be portraying but geek speculation has it down to two potential characters. Naturally, these could be dead wrong but given Dinklage's height, it does narrow it down a lot.
Dinklage may play the character of Gateway, who is 4’6″ in the comics and creates wormholes which allow travel through space, time and dimensions. Being that the film deals with time travel, this could be a logical character fit.
He could also play the character called Puck, an original member of the Canadian-based superhero team, Alpha Flight. Puck is 3’6″ feet tall in the comics and has superhuman strength, speedy reflexes and increased agility.
Only time will tell who Dinklage will be playing but he is an amazing actor, so well done Singer, on adding him to the roster.
Singer's "X-Men: Days of Future Past" hit AMC Theatres July 18th 2014.
