Can Marvel get any cooler? Yesterday, Variety reported that Game of Thrones’s Peter Dinklage is in talks to join 2018’s Avengers: Infinity War and its 2019 sequel.
This isn’t Dinklage’s first rodeo with Marvel. In 2014, he also starred in X-Men: Days of Future Past as Bolivar Trask.
Dinklage is one of the few new cast members to be added to the cinematic universe. He will be joining an already large ensemble including Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans and Benedict Cumberbatch.
After directing the last two “Captain America” installments, Joe and Anthony Russo will be back to direct Avengers: Infinity War. No plot details are known at this time but likely Marvel’s leering baddie, Thanos (Josh Brolin), will have a big part.
