The Game of Thrones star will play the villain of the film

[UPDATE: Variety is reporting that Peter Dinklage will be the villain in the film. So rather than Puck from Alpha Flight, there's now speculation that Dinklage will play Bolivar Trask (creator of the Sentinels). Badass Digest has an off-the-wall theory that Dinklage will play Mr. Sinister.]

Hot damn, this is some keen news. Peter Dinklage in on board for X-Men: Days of Future Past. Director Bryan Singer made the announcement on Twitter last night:

Officially like to welcome #PeterDinklage from #GameOfThrones to #XMEN #DaysofFuturePast Very very excited!

Dinklage will join X-Men: Fist Class cast members James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, and Nicholas Hoult, as well as a number of returning X-Men actors from the past (Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellan, Ellen Page, Anna Paquin, Shawn Ashmore, and Hugh Jackman).

It's currently unknown what role Dinklage will play, but there's speculation that he'll be Puck from Alpha Flight. Who do you think Peter Dinklage will be in X-Men: Days of Future Past?
