Director Bryan Singer has announced that Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage has joined the cast of his upcoming superhero sequel X-Men: Days of Future Past. He shared the news with all of his followers on Twitter.
It should be noted that Puck, real name Eugene Milton Judd, was not a mutant, but a regular man with extraordinary fighting and acrobatic skills. It was later revealed that he had a demon living inside of him that gave him mystical powers, and caused him great pain. Alpha Flight doesn't play a major role in the original X-Men: Days of Future Past comic book storyline. Is it possible that he is going to simply cameo as Puck in the ultimate Mutant showdown? Is 20th Century Fox gearing up for an Alpha Flight movie?
In further speculation, Bryan Singer recently announced that one of the characters in this Mutant adventure would be fully CGI, which has lead some to believe that Peter Dinklage may be playing this charcter via Mo-Cap, and will not be playing one of Marvel's few dwarf characters.
X-Men: Days of Future Past was released May 23rd, 2014 and stars Hugh Jackman, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Halle Berry, Nicholas Hoult, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page. The film is directed by Bryan Singer.
