Game of Thrones actors get cast into big projects all the time, and lately it’s not as surprising when that happens. However, today we have something which we can call a big news : Peter Dinklage, who plays Tyrion Lannister in Game of Thrones, has been said to be in the talks to be cast into the next Avengers movie from Marvel, and that too in a key role!
A report by Variety says that an anonymous source provided this information. With the shooting of Game of Thrones Season 7 easing up, Peter could allot some time to shoot the next Avengers sequel, titled “Avengers : Infinity War,” expected to begin filming in summer. Two Avengers sequels will be shot, back to back, and Dinklage will apparently be a part of both the films.
The plot of the movies hasn’t been revealed properly yet, but we know that Marvel has been building up to the Thanos face-off, with him having the infinity gauntlet with the infinity stones on it, pitting all the Avengers up against him, and total destruction. The stones have been introduced into the Marvel Cinematic Universe through various Marvel movies.
A lot of the cast members are set to return for recurring roles. Peter Dinklage might be one of the very few new cast members, and we are excited to see what role he plays.
“Avengers : Infinity War” is set to release on the 4th of May, 2018, which means we might have to wait a while before we get any details. Dinklage has already been in a superhero movie before, playing Boliver Trask in “X-Men: Days of Future Past,” but the Avengers series is a whole new ball game.
We will update you as we get further details. What role do you think Peter Dinklage is going to take up in the Marvel Cinematic Universe? Talk to us in the comments, below!
