Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage may be swapping Fox for Disney to join another Marvel film. The actor is in early talks to play a key role in AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR. He previously starred in X-Men: Days of Future Past from Marvel and Fox.
The film will unite the stars of the first two Avengers films with recently added heroes, such as Spider-Man and Dr. Strange, to fight against main antagonist Thanos with a plot revolving around the Infinity Gauntlet and the six Infinity Stones. The stones have been alluded to and seen individually since Phase One of the MCU. Dinklage’s role in the film and its sequel is currently unknown.
The back-to-back pair of Infinity War films will be directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, who previously helmed Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Civil War.
Dinklage is best known for his award-winning role in Game of Thrones and has also recently starred in The Boss with Melissa McCarthy.
He is repped by CAA.
