It was widely reported last week that Peter Dinklage is in early talks for a role in Avengers: Infinity War. Immediately rumors flooded in claiming the Game of Thrones actor is playing the iconic Marvel villain Modok. Marvel and Disney haven't signed the actor yet, but until we get official word on the character, acclaimed artist BossLogic has imagined what Peter Dinklage looks like as Modok.
ComicBook.com commissioned BossLogic to create this art, which comes just days after the casting report. It's worth noting, though, that Captain America: Civil War writer Christopher Markus, who is also writing Avengers: Infinity War with his writing partner Stephen McFeely, said in an interview last year that he wants to find a way to bring Modok into a Marvel movie. While that is far from any confirmation that Peter Dinklage is playing Modok (Mental/Mobile/Mechanized Organism Designed Only for Killing), there is another theory that has surfaced. »
Just when you thought the cast of Avengers: Infinity War couldn’t get any better, a new report from Variety states that Game of Thrones actor Peter Dinklage is being eyed for a role in the film. If the actor does come on board the project, he’ll most likely be returning for the as-yet-untitled Avengers 4, which is due out a year after Infinity War.
Signing on would make Dinklage a newcomer to the ever-expanding Marvel Cinematic Universe, although he’s no stranger to comic book movies. In 2014, the actor played Dr. Bolivar Trask, the creator of the Sentinels and target of an assassination attempt, in Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Days of Future Past. While Dinklage did fine work in the movie, he was severely underused and didn’t exactly make a strong impression, so if he’s trading Fox’s X-Men universe for Disney’s McU, there’s not a lot of damage done. »

According to the trade, the Game Of Thrones actor is set to star in both part one and part two of the superhero franchise, which will be shot back-to-back. Shooting starts on them later this summer in Atlanta.
No official word from Marvel, and there’s no news on who exactly Dinklage would be up for playing, but the trade does report that it is a ‘key role’ in the movies, which once again teams the likes of Robert Downey Jr’s Iron Man, Chris Evans’ Captain America etc.
The first film is scheduled for a 2018 bow.

With production rumored to start later this month, Marvel is getting into casting mode for Avengers: Infinity War. Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage is reportedly in early talks to star in what is said to be a "key role," although no details about the character have been given. Marvel would not comment on the casting, and while the character's identity has not yet been revealed, there is already plenty of speculation about who he may be playing in this Avengers sequel.
Variety reports that production is now expected to start at some point this summer, which contradicts another report from last month that claimed Marvel was gearing up for a January 23, 2017 production start on Avengers: Infinity War. Filming is expected to take place both in Atlanta, Georgia, at Pinewood Atlanta Studios, and in the U.K. It is also believed that both Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4 will shoot back-to-back. »
Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage may be adding a new franchise to his resume, as he’s in early talks for an unspecified role in Avengers: Infinity War, Deadline has confirmed. Marvel had no comment on the talks. Directed by Captain America Winter Soldier and Civil War helmers Anthony Russo and Joe Russo from a script by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, the upcoming film is already set to be the biggest Marvel Studios project yet. Plot details about Avengers: Infi… »
Sunday night, the Golden Globe Awards were handed out and in attendance was the alluring actress Zoe Saldana, who plays Gamora in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. While we have a pretty good idea of who will be in Avengers: Infinity War, it's always newsworthy when an actor confirms a role, as Saldana was interviewed by MTV's Josh Horowitz and asked her thoughts on the Infinity War script.
“I don’t know when they’re going to let me see it [the script], I’m not looking forward to the five hours of green make up, but every time I arrive on set, I’m so happy and lucky to be there.”
That statement is confirmation enough for me, and yesterday IGN was able to squeeze a little more information out of her as she gives her thoughts on working with a different director and the direction of her character in Infinity War. »
