So as if I wasn’t already excited enough for Bryan Singer’s return to the X-Men franchise, today brings this bit of information. Singer has brought on Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage for a role in X-Men:First Class. Rumors abound that he will play Puck, a member of the Alpha Flight team. For those unfamiliar, Alpha Flight is Canada’s version of The Avengers which included member like Northstar and Sasquatch.
Of course these are all just rumors and there are any number of characters that Dinklage could be in line to play. If the Puck rumor does pan out it would certainly seem like Mark Millar is hard at work in his new job to try and expand 20th Century Fox’s Marvel universe.
X-Men: Days of Future’s Past releases on July 18, 2014 and stars Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Ian McKellan, Patrick Stewart, Jennifer Lawrence and Peter effing Dinklage.
Reports are now confirming that Dinklage is being cast to play a villain in the First Class sequel, so the dreams of Puck fans everywhere may be thwarted. Sorry Canada.
