Just when I didn’t think I could get any more excited about Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Days of Future Past, he adds Peter Dinklage to the already amazing cast. Singer announced the news on Twitter on February 13 and my phone lit up with texts from excited pals:
Though the role wasn’t specified, fans speculated he would be playing Puck (though look how perfect Dinklage looks as Wolverine). However, Variety states sources have told them Dinklage is playing the primary villain. It’s not clear which one he’ll portray though because the bad guys in the graphic novel version of Days of Future Past have already been seen in previous X-Men films and played by different actors. But that wouldn’t necessarily rule them out—and really, he’ll be awesome regardless of who he plays. He’s Peter Freaking Dinklage.
